Fast cycle tank cleaner

25 February 2019

One large UK crisp manufacturer found stubborn, sticky residues were remaining in 600mm barrels after flavour concentrates had been transferred. The spinning spray balls used to clean the barrels were found to not be completing the job which meant a secondary manual clean was required. 

The tough sticky residue meant that the spinning spray balls, normally suited to these types of small tanks, were simply not up to the job. Another issue was that most rotary jet cleaners were too large for the barrels and their flow rate was too high to be practical. Also, the set cycle time required by the rotary jet cleaners meant that the 10 minutes or more cleaning cycles to ensure that the jets had reached each part of the tank, were too long. 

A solution was offered by The Spray Nozzle People (SNP) which provided the crisp manufacturer with an Orbitor Eco fast cycle small rotary jet cleaner which was trialled on small tanks alongside several competitor solutions. 

Following the trials the Oribitor was selected as it was judged to provide a better overall clean as well as being a more robust option that would last longer.

The Orbitor Eco is a fast cycle jet cleaner that uses a fraction of the water, when compared to other cleaning systems. It rotates through its cleaning cycle quickly with full cleans achievable in just two minutes with a flow rate comparable to spinning spray balls.

The impact cleaning of the Orbitor Eco in this application meant that the barrels were cleaned satisfactorily without the need for a secondary manual clean, saving the company time and money.

The Oribtor Eco is designed to provide optimum efficiency, enabling up to 95% water savings (depending on the application) with fast cycle times of between two and 10 minutes. It operates on low pressures of 1 to 10 Bar and with low flows of 45 to 150 l/min and thanks to its small, compact design, fits openings from 10 to 85mm.
