Clean product tanker

A clean product tanker is a tanker that is dedicated to moving finished petroleum products so as to maintain their quality.

This is in contrast to a dirty tanker that moves crude oil and fuel oil with less concern about maintaining tight quality levels.

A clean product tanker will typically carry product in multiple tanks, allowing multiple products and product grades to be moved simultaneously while maintaining product segregation.
