Storage tanks are found in virtually every industry, and range in size significantly.Typically they are wide open tanks with no internal obstructions. Oftentimes, storage tanks need to be cleaned between batches or flushed out on a regular basis to avoid contamination. The ideal storage tank washer takes into account the size and residue in the tank. Alfa Laval tank cleaning offers a wide range of storage tank cleaning devices, for all sizes and residues.

tank cleaning devices

Alfa Laval has a full line of application-specific tank cleaning equipment.

Alfa Laval tank cleaning devices use patented technology that combine pressure and flow to create high impact cleaning jets. Cleaning occurs not just where the concentrated stream impacts the surface, but also through the tangential force that radiates from that point and blasts contaminants from the surface, scouring the tank interior. The high-impact cleaning jets are delivered in a precise, repeatable and reliable, 360° pattern. This combination of impact in a controlled indexing pattern results in an economic ideal, because impact is a one time investment; chemicals, temperature and time are continual, never-ending expenditures. With a quick return-on-investment, our rotary impingement devices are guaranteed to positively impact the ultimate scorecard, your bottom line.

Customers that convert to Gamajet or Toftjorg rotary jet heads from manual cleaning, static spray balls and the fill and drain method, typically realize a:

100% Satisfaction with Cleaning Effectiveness
70-80% Decrease in Wash Fluid (Water and Cleaning Chemicals)
75-85% Decrease in Time Spent Cleaning
10-20% Increase in Productivity
90-100% Decrease in Confined Space Entry for Manual Cleaning
