Algae-X International (AXI) has added to its line of standard Mobile Tank Cleaning (MTC) systems: the HC-80, a high capacity, multi-stage, automated fuel tank cleaning system equipped with a Smart Filtration Controller. This new system stabilizes and decontaminates diesel fuel, bio-diesel, light oils and hydraulic fluids while restoring fuel to a “clear and bright” condition.

The HC-80 is ideal for service providers in the tank cleaning industry. With changes in fuel production and the growing implementation of bio-fuels, the need for fuel maintenance, including periodic tank cleaning has increased dramatically, the company says. The MTC HC-80 system efficiently cleans tanks, removes water and sludge and restores optimal fuel quality. The system is equipped with a fully automated controller that provides an instant visual status report of system power, pump operation and alarms for high pressure, high vacuum and high water levels.

AXI’s MTC systems combine high-capacity fuel optimization, filtration and water separation with low operating costs and a compact design to provide optimal fuel quality for reliable, peak engine performance.

The MTC HC-80 Mobile Tank Cleaning System:
• fully automated
• compact design
• high capacity fuel processing
• fuel flow and transfer of 80 GPM
• decontaminates fuel and tanks
• removes sludge and solids
• large contaminant holding capacity


Algae-X International (AXI) designs, engineers and manufactures innovative fuel filtration, fuel conditioning and tank cleaning equipment, now available in over 40 countries around the globe.
