Rotary Spray Heads 

What is the optimum inlet pressure for Rotary Spray Heads?

2 bar pressure

When would a rotary spray head be used in place of a fixed spray ball?

When the requirement is to improve an existing cleaning performance through much better cleaning fluid coverage across the internal surfaces of the tank

To reduce the volumes of effluent generated by the CIP process

What is the maximum effective cleaning radius of a Rotary Spray Head?

Up to 3m radius

What Information Is Required To Size And Recommend A Specific Cleaning Head?

Rotary Spray Heads

Is the application a simple or difficult to clean

What spray pattern is required, 3600, 1800 up or down etc

Is a Riboflavin rinse test to be carried out during commissioning

What material certification is required with the balls

Will Welding certification be required

What internal and external surfaces finish is require

Will the balls require pickling and passivation and or electro polishing

Material of construction, Hastelloy, 316L stainless steel etc

Required Tank/Application Information

What is the diameter, the height of the straight side, top dish and bottom cone of the tank

Where is the existing or potential positions for the cleaning head to be installed.

How many and in what positions are the inlet connections in the top dish of the tank

What are the inlet connection sizes in the top dish of the tank

Are there any internal Baffles, Agitators, Fill Pipes, Ladders or any other obstructions in the tank to potentially cause shadowing

What is the product to be removed from the internal surfaces of the tank, is it water soluble or will a solvent required

What flow and pressure is available locally to operate the cleaning head technology

What type of CIP recipe is proposed, just a cold or hot rinse or a full CIP cycle involving a pre rinse, caustic recirculation and final rinse etc

If it is an existing application requiring improved CIP performance, what is the existing pre rinse, caustic recirculation and final rinse cycle times
