Alfa Laval GJ A6 tank cleaning machine provides a thorough, 360 degree cleaning of tanks within the hygienic industries.

Effective tank cleaning is critical to product integrity, productivity and profitability in all industries. By choosing the right cleaning equipment, you can reduce water, chemicals and energy costs as well as decrease cleaning time between production cycles.

Now also retrofitting through small tank openings

As part of the market’s most consistent portfolio of rotary jet head tank cleaning machines, we recently added three Alfa Laval rotary jet heads, GJ A2, GJ A6 and GJ PF FT. This gives you the opportunity of easy installation of rotary jet head technology in small size tank openings like 3″ or 4″, where static spray ball and rotary spray heads are normally mounted in today. By retrofitting with one of the three small GJ type rotary jet heads, you avoid reworking the tank to accommodate upgrading tank cleaning equipment, meaning low installation cost.
Easy to upgrade from static spray balls

When higher cleaning efficiency is required, it is easy to upgrade your static spray balls to the Alfa Laval GJ Rotary Jet Head technology. Simply unclip the static spray ball and replace it with a new clip-on GJ rotary jet head, that uses a cleaning pattern ensuring dynamic and effective distribution of water to the inner tank surfaces. The high mechanical force generated by the strong jet impingement, efficiently removes remaining products and residues to provide the best conditions required for hygienic production. Rotary jet heads clean tanks 70% faster than the static spray ball technology. Because of faster cleaning, it uses less water and chemicals – and thereby reducing operating costs by up to 80%. Rotary jet heads provide exceptional cleanability, better and safer end-product quality and greater overall output for all hygienic applications.
By using Alfa Laval tank cleaning machines, you get…

Faster cleaning = More production uptime

More efficient cleaning = Minimizing risk of product lost due to contamination

Impact cleaning = Reducing the use of water and chemicals

Automated cleaning = Validated process ensuring high product quality

Fast payback = Often less than 1 year, due to low operating cost

New tank cleaning machine reduces costs for energy and wash fluid

The latest innovation within the company’s broad tank cleaning portfolio, the Alfa Laval

sprray ball, tank cleaning machine,

The new Alfa Laval TJ40G is designed clean tanks quickly and effectively.

TJ40G raises the bar for tank cleaning performance of critical hygienic applications in the food, dairy, beverage, pharmaceutical, home and personal care industries. What’s new is an improved self-cleaning function of the interior and exterior of the device itself, and 100% coverage of tank interior.

“Expect exceptional levels of tank cleaning from the new Alfa Laval TJ40G Rotary Jet Head,” says Kim Kjellberg, Product Portfolio Manager, Tank Cleaning. “Designed in response to the demand for increased hygienic levels, the self-cleaning system is more effective due to numerous features such as small holes in the hub that make sure the cone of the machine is clean, thereby removing residue that other tank cleaning devices may miss.”

The TJ40G uses a high-impact jet stream to effectively clean tough tank residue and minimize the risk of product contamination. This four-nozzle rotary jet head also cleans tanks 60% faster than static spray ball technology, which increases production uptime. And because it cleans faster, the Alfa Laval TJ40G uses less water and less cleaning agents thereby reducing operating costs by up to 70%.

The eight-cycle cleaning pattern of the Alfa Laval TJ40G Rotary Jet Head gets successively denser as the cleaning cycle progresses, ensuring full coverage and thorough cleaning. Using the powerful mechanical impact of the jet stream to achieve outstanding cleaning results, the Alfa Laval TJ40G requires less time, energy, water and cleaning agents than comparable CIP methods.

The Alfa Laval TJ40G is capable of handling tough tank residue as well as solids up to 1mm in the cleaning fluid. This is particularly important for demanding process lines where both the size and the amount of particles, such as brew house application, may be re-circulated in cleaning media before completing the cleaning cycle.

Not only does the Alfa Laval TJ40G Rotary Jet Head provide spotless cleaning of the tank interior, it also cleans itself – inside and out. Its hygienic self-cleaning construction ensures that the flow of the cleaning fluid reaches the external surfaces of the rotary jet head, as well as the critical internal components such as all bushings, bearings and inner surfaces. This minimizes the risk of product contamination and ensures a high product quality.

Beer fermenter tanks need regular cleaning. We recommend Alfa Laval tank cleaning devices.


Fermentation tanks, or fermenters, are designed to turn feed stock into alcohol forenergy use (ex. ethanol) or human consumption (ex. wine, beer).

Within the wine, beer and distilling industry, fermentation tank cleanliness is extremely important to avoid contamination issues and create a high quality product. Plus, higher yields can be generated from a clean tank. These tanks get dirty and require a high impact tank cleaning device to ensure a clean, uncontaminated tank. For large tanks, we recommend the Alfa Laval GJ 8 or GJ 4 tank cleaning devices. For mid-sized fermenters, we recommend the Alfa Laval PF fermenter cleaning device. And for small fermentation tanks, we recommend the Alfa Laval GJ 9 tank cleaner.

In the Ethanol industry, a powerful, durable machine is necessary. These tanks are very large, and the residue is very challenging to clean. There are typically obstructions and/or agitators and a tank cleaning device must be able to clean in and around them. Clean tanks leads to higher yields. We recommend the Alfa Laval GJ 8 tank cleaner because is extremely powerful, lightweight, durable, and particulate is designed to stay out of the gearhead, thereby increasing lifespan.
