Efficient and sustainable tank cleaning
GEA Breconcherry offers a range of tank cleaning equipment, designed to meet the varying requirements within the brewing and beverage industries.
The cleaners can be used in tanks with diameters of up to 33m at flow rates of up to 66.7m³/h. The operating pressure range varies between 0.5 and 90bars.
The latest additions to GEA Breconcherry’s range of equipment are the orbital cleaner Tornado 4, with a cleaning diameter of up to 33m, and the compact orbital cleaner Twister, fitting through tank openings of just 100mm in diameter.
In the hygienic process industry, requirements in tank cleaning have changed over the past few years. Today, efficiency and sustainability are of the utmost importance. At the same time processors also demand continual improvements of cleaning results as they pay ever-increasing attention to the critical importance of hygiene in their product processing, and its impact on sales and profits.
The specially designed cleaning heads of GEA Breconcherry’s tank cleaning equipment require the minimum use of cleaning liquids and achieve a strong, mechanical spray pattern for best results. Almost all units can be optionally used in hazardous areas.
The majority of cleaners are driven entirely by the cleaning fluid without the need for external energy. A specially developed sensor system that can be mounted to the vessel is used for monitoring the function of orbital cleaners. If within a defined period of time no change of liquid passing the sensor is detected, the output signal of the sensor changes and gives a malfunction as feedback. z
