Mavi Deniz Rock Cleaner specially designed innovation to clean-up oil spills under challenging conditions, on rocky shorelines, beaches, on land, harbors, ditches, roads, at oil terminals, petrol stations, factories, airports, shipyards and on vessels.

The rock cleaner is a handheld vacuum based rock skimmer with integrated brush wheel for an 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 also be used of oil on the water surface or land, concrete, asphalt, oil booms too.

Mavi Rock Cleaner has two main parts; one of them is 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 which operated brush wheel that removes the oil layer from rocks and separates oil from water with Mavi Deniz proved 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 but also very lightweight which ensures the system can be operated easily by a single operator. The operator is also able to 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 very low power requirement. The unit can be connected 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 a variety of 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 speed of the brush wheel.

Optional A Stone Catcher can also be added to filter out stones, trash and debris to protect the pump from the operation on the individual customer’s requirements.
