Comparing controllable factors of tank cleaning systems

Gamajet IV rotary impinger

In 1959, a chemical engineer described the four factors that can be manipulated in any cleaning scenario: temperature, chemical reaction, time, and mechanical action. When the effectiveness of any factor is reduced, others must increase to balance it out. While mechanics is a one-time expenditure, the other three factors have ongoing costs associated with them: the cost to heat water, price of chemicals, staff time and process downtime.

Tank cleaning is the #1 culprit in water waste, and a major cause for lost production and revenue due to tank downtime. Maximizing mechanical force allows for the reduction in use of other costly resources.

GamajetAlfa Laval rotary impingement tank cleaning systems combine pressure and flow to create high-impact cleaning jets. The impact and force of the concentrated stream blast contanimants from the surface of your tank, and its repeatable 360° pattern ensures the entire tank interior is cleaned, without the need to send workers into a confined space to scrub.
