Alfa Laval offers a rotary tank cleaning machine that can help manufacturers save time and water.

The company says in a statement that the Alfa Laval TJ40G rotary tank cleaning machine “uses a high-impact jet stream to effectively clean tough tank residues and minimize the risk of product contamination.”

The machine comes with four nozzles and can clean tanks 60 per cent faster than a static spray ball technology, says the statement. It uses less water because it cleans faster and it uses less cleaning agents. The company says it can reduce costs by up to 70 per cent.

The cleaning system can handle “tough tank residues and solids up to 1 mm in the cleaning fluid in tank sizes 50 m3 to 1,000 m3,” says the statement. These features come in handy in breweries where for example, says the company, “both the size and the amount of particles may be recirculated in cleaning media before completing the cleaning cycle.”


The Alfa Laval TJ40G is also self-cleaning. “Its hygienic construction¬†ensures that the flow of the cleaning fluid reaches the exterior surfaces of the rotary jet head, as well as the critical interior components such as all bushings, bearings and inner surfaces. This minimizes the risk of product contamination and ensures a high product quality,” says the statement.
