Cleaning IBCs and small tanks has just become much easier with Tecpro Australia’s introduction of the affordable Turbo SSB 40 spray head.
In the past, it’s been difficult to source spray heads purpose-built for industrial cleaning of small tanks and vessels such as intermediate bulk containers (IBC’s). This has meant that many people have opted for less-thorough cleaning methods, or resorted to spray heads that are too large for the job.
"The arrival in Australia of the Turbo SSB 40 nozzle is great news for those looking for an economical low pressure spray head for cleaning IBCs and the like," says Graeme Cooper, Managing Director of Tecpro Australia. "Its compact design and slotted spray ball delivers a powerful cleaning action that will be valuable in a wide range of applications."
Designed and manufactured in the UK, the Turbo SSB 40 does not contain ball bearings. This has the effect of reducing maintenance requirements and extending the unit’s life. The potential for contamination caused by degradation of bearings is also eliminated as a result.
"The Turbo SSB 40 features highly efficient fan jets which cut down on cleaning time," says Cooper. "And by operating efficiently using a low flow rate, it saves on water, chemical and effluent costs too."
The drive chamber contains a unique pressure regulation system that helps to keep the rotation speed consistent under differing pressure. The Turbo SSB 40 is particularly suited in low flow, low pressure applications where slow and steady rotation is required to enable longer chemical dwell times.
"For a small tank washer, the Turbo SSB 40 has a strong range," says Cooper. "It performs high impact cleaning to a distance of 2.5 metres and has a wetting radius of over 4 metres."
The Turbo SSB 40 has a 3/8” BSP female connection and is constructed from Stainless Steel 316L, PTFE and C-PTFE. It performs best with 3-4 bar pressure at the wash head but also performs well with 2 bar pressure.
"At just 83mm high and 30mm wide, the Turbo SSB 40 fits into very compact spaces," says Cooper. "It's ideally suited for applications where strict levels of hygiene are required such as pharmaceutical, biotech, food and beverage industries."
