A new range of rotary spray balls, which are ideal for replacing static spray balls to ensure more efficient cleaning, are now available through nozzle specialist Bete. Available in two sizes, they ensure a maximum cleaning radius (depending on pressure/flow) from 1.5m up to 2.43m, so they are suitable for small- to medium-sized tanks from 1.5m up to 5m diameter.
The key features and benefits include: optimum consumption of water and chemicals so operating costs are reduced; a double ball bearing arrangement to ensure reduced lifecycle costs; self-cleaning and self-lubricating function, which helps to eliminate the potential for process contamination. There are also versions that feature a targeted cleaning 'slot', which helps to direct flow to target specific cleaning spots.
They can be supplied with 360°, 300° up and 180° down spray patterns and have a working pressure of between 1 to 3 bar, a maximum recommended pressure of up to 5.2 bar and a maximum working temperature of 95°C. They are available with a choice of connections to enable easy retrofit to existing systems.
Bete rotary spray balls are suitable for a wide range of tank cleaning applications on filling lines or wherever process vessels require cost-effective cleaning.
