Alfa Laval TJ40G cuts tank cleaning time and costs

The Alfa Laval TJ40G Rotary Jet Head tank-cleaning machine gets rid of residues while reducing cycle times and costs for energy, water and cleaning agents.

The latest innovation within the company’s broad tank cleaning portfolio, the Alfa Laval TJ40G raises the bar for tank cleaning performance of critical hygienic applications in the food, dairy, beverage, pharmaceutical, home and personal care industries. What’s new are effective cleaning of the tank downpipe, an improved self-cleaning function of the interior and exterior of the device itself, and 100% coverage of tank interior.

Removes all residues efficiently

“Expect exceptional levels of tank cleaning from the new Alfa Laval TJ40G Rotary Jet Head,” says Jens Andersen, Product Portfolio Manager, Tank Cleaning, Alfa Laval. “Designed in response to the demand for increased hygienic levels, it directs a powerful jet stream of cleaning fluid directly on the downpipe, thereby removing residues that other tank cleaning devices may miss.”

Significant savings on water

The new Alfa Laval TJ40G complements the Alfa Laval TJ20G. Both offer the same exceptional cleanability, product quality, and significant savings on energy, water and cleaning agents due to faster, more effective cleaning than comparable technologies. However, the Alfa Laval TJ40G easily handles large tanks with capacities between 50 and more than 500 cubic meters in size while the TJ20G handles small tank with capacities between 15 and 150 cubic meters in size.

Exceptional cleanability, reliability and predictability

Like the Alfa Laval TJ20G, the Alfa Laval TJ40G uses a high-impact jet stream to effectively clean tough tank residues and minimize the risk of product contamination. This four-nozzle rotary jet head also cleans tanks 60% faster than static spray ball technology, which increases production uptime. And because it cleans faster, the Alfa Laval TJ40G uses less water and less cleaning agents thereby reducing operating costs by up to 70%.

Optimal cleaning pattern reduce cleaning media used

The eight-cycle cleaning pattern of the Alfa Laval TJ40G Rotary Jet Head gets successively denser as the cleaning cycle progresses, ensuring full coverage and thorough cleaning. Using the powerful mechanical impact of the jet stream to achieve stellar cleaning results, the Alfa Laval TJ40G requires less time, energy, water and cleaning agents than comparable CIP methods.

Easily handles tough residues and solids

The Alfa Laval TJ40G is capable of handling tough tank residues as well as solids in the cleaning fluid. This is particularly important for demanding process lines where both the size and the amount of particles, such as yeast or pulp, may be re-circulated in cleaning media before completing the cleaning cycle.

Complete self-cleaning system, inside and out

Not only does the Alfa Laval TJ40G Rotary Jet Head provide spotless cleaning of the tank interior, it also cleans itself – inside and out. Its hygienic self-cleaning construction ensures that the flow of the cleaning fluid reaches the external surfaces of the rotary jet head, including the downpipe, as well as the critical internal components such as all bushings, bearings and inner surfaces. This minimizes the risk of product contamination as well as increases hygiene levels and product safety.
