A clog-resistant tank-cleaning head

By Yelena Shamis |

BeteThe clog-resistant Hydroclaw tank-cleaning head impacts a jet of water on a claw-like plate, which shatters the fluid into a 360-deg pattern, effectively covering the whole tank. Traditional cleaning heads typically have multiple small orifices that form a 360-deg cleaning pattern. As there is only a single orifice for the cleaning fluid to pass through, the overall free passage is dramatically increased (between 3 to 5 times higher, says the manufacturer), allowing for liquid with high particle content (for particles over 7.6 mm in diameter) to be used as the cleaning media. The HydroClaw is made from FDA-compliant 316L stainless steel, making it suitable for food-grade and aseptic clean-in-place (CIP) applications. It has no moving parts and is self-draining, self-flushing and is laser-welded for optimum durability. The HydroClaw is designed to fit through a 76-mm opening and is available with a variety of connection types. — Bete Ltd., Lewes, U.K.
