Save time and water with this tank-cleaning machine

The new TJ40G rotary tank-cleaning machine (photo) uses a high-impact jet stream to effectively clean tough tank residues and minimize the risk of product contamination. This four-nozzle rotary jet head also cleans tanks 60% faster than static spray-ball technology, thereby increasing production uptime. And because it cleans faster, this new device uses less water and less cleaning agents which reduces operating costs by up to 70%, says the company. The TJ40G is capable of handling tough tank residues, as well as solids up to 1 mm in the cleaning fluid in tank sizes of 50–1,000 m³. This is particularly important for demanding process lines, such as applications within a brewery, where particles may be re-circulated in cleaning media before completing the cleaning cycle. Also, the unit’s hygienic self-cleaning construction ensures that the flow of the cleaning fluid reaches the exterior surfaces of the rotary jet head, as well as the critical interior components, including all bushings, bearings and inner surfaces. This minimizes the risk of product contamination and ensures high product quality.— Alfa Laval AB, Lund, Sweden
