The Scanjet SC SCANCUT-235-H is a state-of-the-art solution for industrial tank maintenance/tank cleaning. It is a hydraulically powered cutting tool specifically designed for precision cutting of holes in tank roofs.

Designed with safety, efficiency and versatility in mind, this tool is essential for facilitating the installation of tank cleaning machines. Its certification for use in ATEX Zone 0 environments makes sure it meets the most stringent safety standards for operation in hazardous areas.


The cutting tool is specifically designed to cut precise 160 mm diameter holes tailored for the installation of Scanjet tank cleaning machines, such as the SC 60A and SC 60H models. It is used in cases where cleaning cannot be performed through existing tank openings, such as those from support legs.

The SCANCUT safely cuts new hole and is ATEX certified for Zone 0. Designed for:

  • Oil storage tanks, fixed or floating roofs
  • Other tanks requiring a new tank opening
Working Principle

The SC SCANCUT-235-H is hydraulically powered, with a drive unit mounted on a cutter body for robust cutting performance. The cutting process is powered by a hydraulic motor that rotates the cutting bits. Cutting depth and speed are manually controlled from the handle, with progress indicated on a tachometer. It is equipped with two interchangeable standard cutting bits for effective cutting and a magnet to securely hold the cut-out steel plate to prevent it from falling into the tank.

  • ATEX Zone 0 certified for safe use in hazardous areas
  • Stainless steel construction, durable design
  • Powerful, consistent cutting tool
  • Lightweight for easy handling
  • Low maintenance and quick bit changes for efficiency

The SC SCANCUT-235-H comes with a wide range of accessories:

  • Service kits; Scanjet service kits include what is required for every specific service with up-to-date genuine spare parts
  • Optional extension
