The Spectank® System

What is the Spectank® system?

Spectank® is an insulated stainless steel soak tank with a thermostatically controlled heating element.


CARBSOLVE® is a non-toxic, non-corrosive and biodegradable cleaning powder, specifically formulated to remove ”Black Carbon”.


Together, Spectank® and CARBSOLVE® will clean and sanitise your cooking and baking equipment.

How does a Spectank® work?

  • A Spectank® is filled with water and CARBSOLVE®.
  • The solution is heated to 80°C, ensuring that harmful bacteria will be killed.
  • Soiled items are soaked in this solution for a period of 1 to 24 hours depending on the severity of the “Black Carbon” build up.
  • These cleaned and sanitised items are removed and rinsed off with fresh water.
  • Without the use of harsh chemicals and valuable staff time, your items are now ready for use.
  • CARBSOLVE® has activators which are released at various stages ensuring that the solution remains active for a full month.
  • On a monthly cycle, a technician will service your Spectank® which includes draining, cleaning and refilling the tank as well as all repairs and maintenance.
  • A Spectank® is available in five standard sizes or it can be custom designed, depending on kitchen requirements.

Spectank® is much more than just a cleaning system. Our business model has been developed to make sure that you get maximum return from your investment. Spectank® operates as an asset to your business.

Before and After Spectank®

Saves Time and Money

Effective cleaning is essential to ensure the safety and hygiene of a kitchen but conventional methods can be dangerous, costly and time consuming.

A Spectank® works 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and reduces the cost of labour, chemicals, water and electricity required to clean and sanitise equipment.

Cleaning in a soak application, as opposed to scrubbing, extends the lifespan of equipment and reduces replacement costs.

A Spectank® effectively cleans filters thereby eliminating the need to outsource this costly function.

Owing to the convenience, ease and speed of use, the Spectank® cleaning methodology will free up valuable time in your kitchen. This allows your employees to focus on value-adding activities, resulting in increased job satisfaction, skills development and reduced staff turnover.

Environmentally Friendly

One application of CARBSOLVE® in a Spectank® will clean all the carbon, fat, oil and grease from your equipment for a full month, significantly reducing your consumption of chemicals, water and energy.

CARBSOLVE® is biodegradable, non-toxic, non-corrosive and environmentally friendly.
