SPRAYING Systems has released Rokon fluid-driven nozzles, suited to tank cleaning and available in sanitary 3A standard versions for CIP duty. European ATEX standard versions can also be supplied for explosive environments.
Spray coverage is 360° and tanks with diameters of up to 3.7m can be cleaned by an individual nozzle. Multiple nozzles can be employed to clean larger tanks, for example those used in the manufacture of cellulose.
The nozzles are far more efficient than conventional nozzles, minimising fluid consumption and rotating at near constant speed in the range of two to 30 rpm, providing highly effective cleaning, sanitising and foaming actions.
The nozzles are suitable for tanks with minimum openings of 32mm and can be selected from four capacity sizes to provide flow rates to 128L/min and operating pressures to 1.6 MPa. Operating temperatures can be as high as 150°C.
