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.
