Tank cleaning nozzles

September 1, 2010




A free-spinning tank cleaner with only an internal slide bearing for rotation, the Lechler PTFE Whirly nozzle is self-lubricating and self-flushing; it comes in 3/4- and 1-in. tube connections. The Lechler stainless steel spray ball static, non-rotating tank cleaning nozzle comes in 3/4-, 1 1/2- and 2-in. inlet connections. Designed for tank cleaning applications requiring adherence to 3A sanitary standards, both types of nozzles use a sanitary slip-on pin to connect to the inlet and have a smooth, slick finish to ensure all sprayed fluid drips off the nozzles and does not adhere to them. Both are made of materials compliant with FDA requirements, and are appropriate for use in sanitary environments in the dairy industry and food and beverage making.
