Water-saving tank cleaning solution

19 December 2016

The new Orbitor Eco from the Spray Nozzle People is similar in design to a standard fluid powered impingement tank cleaner, but has been modified to serve a different function and has the ability to dramatically reduce water consumption, particularly for applications with smaller tanks, or those with lighter residues. 

Traditionally, impingement tank cleaners have always been the most water-efficient way to clean tough residues or larger tanks. However, in smaller tanks or those with light soluble residues, impingement cleaners are often considered as an unnecessary expense. 

The Orbitor Eco changes this as it is designed to complete its cleaning cycle much faster – between 1.7 and six minutes. The fast rotation sacrifices some of its cleaning power but dramatically reduces the water used per cleaning cycle and minimises downtime. When compared directly with other types of cleaning nozzles like spray balls, it can complete a similar job in far less time using up to 95% less water.
