From/To Cleaning

The From/To Cleaning module gives you access to the Cleaning Proposals for all combinations of From/To cargo sequences. There are three separate cleaning proposals available for most commodity combinations.

Milbros Water White Cleaning Proposal:

The Milbros Water White Cleaning Proposals have been meticulously put together by our staff and super cargo consultants who have over 90 years of experience in the chemical tanker industry. Cleaning to a Water White standard is the standard cleaning requirement prior to loading chemical cargoes.

Milbros Cleaning Matrix Recommendations:

These recommendations were compiled from various industry standards and the experience of our staff and supercargo consultants for the cargo sequence selected. If no cleaning methods are available then the Clean to Water White Standard proposal should be used.

Energy Institute HM50 Cleaning Recommendations:
These recommendations are reproduced from the HM 50 Guidelines (2nd edition) for the cleaning of tanks and lines for marine tank vessels carrying petroleum and refined products.
They are reproduced on the web site with permission from Energy Institute, London.
