Sani-Tank is designed to clean and maintain recirculating toilet systems. It is formulated to fight the organic residue that accumulates on the surface inside the toilet holding tanks and on the recirculating pump and maceration systems.
If left untreated, the organic tar-like residue that builds up will cause severe malodors and can affect proper operation of internal waste processing systems by constricting pumps and motors, leading to excessive wear and tear. These residues can even be made worse by using a quat-based toilet deodorant. But regular holding tank cleanings with Sani-Tank will remove these residues and prevent them from accumulating to significant levels in the future; allowing you to avoid odors and system malfunctions.
Philip Schneider, Owner of Elite Aero Services had this to say about the efficacy of Sani-Tank:
“When we perform a lav soak with Sani-Tank, it’s always surprising how much accumulated material is flushed out. Our customers maintain their aircraft to an incredible standard. You could stand in the lav and not even realize they have a recirculating (blue water) system. Sani-Tank is a simple and effective solution for a notoriously problematic area.”
Sani-Tank is one of our user and environmentally friendly products. It is biodegradable, non-toxic, and safe to leave in an aircraft while flying. The combination of natural based terpenes blended together create a very effective, natural solvent base that removes organic deposits from pump equipment, tank walls, and toilet bowls, prevents possible system clogging failure, reduces toilet system malodor, and contributes to the extended life of components.
Sani-Tank excels at removing organic tar-like residue, but if your problem is scale buildup, Sani-Tank N might be a better choice. We will follow up with a Sani-Tank N post soon!
As you can imagine, clogged galley drains and the associated malodors can cause a lot of problems for an airline. Luckily, we have developed a drain cleaner that does an exceptional job of keeping your drains clog free! It can also be used to help break up a pre-existing clog. But before we get into that, let’s go over what causes these clogs.
On commercial aircraft, galley drains are routinely used to dispose of beverages (e.g. coffee, milk, juice, soda). These beverages tend to have a lot of sugar in them, which serves as a food source for common bacteria and microbes. The bacteria and microbes break down the sugar and convert it into cellulosic polymer compounds, which attach to drain screens, valves, and lines. These cellulosic polymers are what lead to malodors and partial or complete blockages in the drains.
Sani-Cide EX3 is our new EPA registered, aircraft approved, broad-spectrum disinfectant and multi-purpose cleaner all in one convenient product. Gone are the days of needing to carry a glass cleaner, disinfectant, and general purpose cleaner onto an aircraft! Sani-Cide EX3 offers a safe and effective approach to the cleaning and disinfecting of numerous surfaces throughout an aircraft. It is capable of cleaning multi-soils and leaving behind a clean, streak-free surface.
Sani-Cide EX3 is an effective disinfectant even though it contains no quaternary ammonium compounds, this also makes it a much better cleaner. Look how well its non-quat based formula did at cleaning this galley floor! You couldn’t even tell the floor was supposed to be blue before Sani-Cide EX3 was applied. That grungy gray/brown that was there comes from using a quat-based cleaner/disinfectant. The quats build up over time creating a grunge factor and making the surface look dirty even though it was recently cleaned.
