The SuperMACS is a mobile sludge extraction system designed by ACTI's 3i division for cleaning stubborn above ground storage tanks, sludge lagoon/pits, railroad tank cars and marine vessels.

ACTI understands the high cost of managing the waste generated from a tank cleaning project. The SuperMACS and centrifuge systems minimize these costs by recycling, separating and recovering water, solids and oil. Through recycling, the SuperMACS can reduce the amount of water used by up to 75% from traditional tank cleaning methods. In addition, commercial oil can be recovered up to 75% reducing the total amount of off site disposal.

The SuperMACS can be used in conjunction with our Sludge Bug, a hydraulically operated tractor like machine that is assembled inside the tank to manage thick or semi-solid tank residue. The Sludge Bug feeds sludge into a suction hose connected to the SuperMACS and is a very efficient solution to difficult cleaning problems. The greatest feature of this technology is that it reduces the liability associated with confined space entry by minimizing the time and quantity of personnel required to clean the tank.
