Mavi Deniz Rock Cleaner designed innovation to clean up oil spills under challenging conditions on rocky shorelines, beaches, land, harbors, ditches, roads, oil terminals, petrol stations, factories, and airports, shipyards, and vessels.
The rock cleaner is a handheld vacuum-based rock skimmer with an integrated brush wheel for improved oil spill recovery efficiency. Traditionally, hand mop units, shovels, and absorbent booms y pads have been used to clean the oil from the shoreline by hand. This new unit allows the operator to recover oil while “brushing” the rocks rapidly. It can be used for oil on the water surface or land, concrete, asphalt, and oil booms.
Mavi Rock Cleaner has two main parts: a brush with a vacuum rock skimmer unit, and the other is the pump with the power pack. As a mobile solution for the shoreline, it has all the power for cleaning up operations.
The Mavi Rock Cleaner has a small hydraulic motor that operates a brush wheel that removes the oil layer from rocks and separates oil from water with Mavi Deniz’s proven brush technology. Recovered oil is scraped off of the brush and flows into a recovery hopper behind the brush. A separate suction pump then sucks the oil to a storage unit. The Rock Cleaner comes with an adjustable steering handle and harness.
However, due to the highly versatile suction lance of the Rock Cleaner is made from seawater-resistant aluminum and weighs approx. 6.5 kg. The system is extremely rugged and very lightweight, ensuring the system can be operated easily by a single operator. The operator can also direct the rock skimmer head into any narrow areas or onto hard surfaces while remaining at a safe distance.
The brush wheel is made from polypropylene bristles. The rock skimmer is entirely hydraulically operated and has a shallow power requirement, and also, the unit can connect to a suction pump or vacuum system.
The Mavi Rock Cleaner also comes with a nozzle and a pan head nozzle allowing the Cleaner to be used in various chemical and oil spill applications. The system can also be equipped with an optional hydraulic control level on a broader handle that improves control of the unit while allowing the user to control the brush wheel’s speed.
A Stone Catcher can filter out stones, trash, and debris to protect the pump from the individual customer’s requirements.
