Tank cleaning head fits in six-inch opening
Dec 1, 2012 12:00 PM
The new Torrent 50 tank cleaning head from NLB Corp delivers 3-D water jet action with the force of 600-hp water, and it fits through a tank or reactor opening as small as 6 inches (15 cm).
The Torrent 50, rated for pressures up to 20,000 psi (1,400 bar) and flows to 50 gpm (183 lm), has two high-velocity water jets that spin vertically while the head spins horizontally. The result is complete 3-D coverage of the tank or reactor interior that removes hardened resins and plastics. The process is fast, productive, environmentally friendly, and eliminates any need for personnel to enter the vessel.
The Torrent 50 has a stainless steel body that is rugged, corrosion-resistant, and easy to clean. It also features an improved seal design that is easier to change than the seals in older 3-D heads while providing longer life, and a magnetic brake system to control the rotation speed.
