Vacuum Toilet Maintenance by CEEBEE MARITIME

Our partner CEEBEE MARTIME is the specialist in the field of descaling vacuum toilet systems. Please visit their website URL for worldwide services.

It just takes time until calcium scale starts building up inside the pipe work of a vacuum toilet system. The flow reduces and eventually the system becomes blocked. It is not always easy to locate, let alone solve these blockages. Getting access to the pipes often takes demolishing elements of the vessel’s interior and always means downtime of the toilet system and all the additional inconvenience that results from it.

Cee-Bee™ Maritime has gained experience in vacuum toilet systems cleaning in the maritime industry for over a decade. One of the results of which is the Cee-Bee™ MR Vacuum System Cleaning Program using digital dosing units.

Urged by the continuous market demand and beside other techniques various Cee-Bee™ MR Digital Dosing Units have been developed and they are the heart of the Cee-Bee™ MR Vacuum System Cleaning Program, that stands out among all competition for more than one reason.      Read more on CEEBEE MARITIME’s website

During Maintenance:

The vacuum toilet system remains operational at all times and the sewage system effectively cleaned whilst all of the vessel’s toilets are in operation!

The Cee-Bee™ MR Vacuum System Cleaning Program does not damage the pipe work, toilet mechanisms or biological sewage treatment plants.  The Scale Remover Liquid is very effective, easy to use and environmentally

The most common solution:

The most common solution is to avoid blockage by the periodic cleaning of the system. As this involves taking out of operation lines of toilets, it is obvious that the cure is often worse than the problem. The disconnected line may be saturated in diluted acid (which does not only disrupt the services on board, but may also cause damage by leakage) or re-circulated in a closed loop, which is more effective, but may have the same negative effects.

Boroscoop inspection.

In consultation with the officer or engineer in charge boroscoop inspections are performed at different locations in the vacuum line. After examining the video recordings an approach is planned. There is a choice to either just descale the main pipe of the vacuum system or also clean the secondary pipes from the toilets to the main pipe. Depending on the level of scaling and the customer’s wishes, Cee-Bee™ Dual Digital Dosing Units are installed at different locations in the vacuum system.
