Alfa Laval Introduces New Line of Tank Cleaning Equipment
Alfa Laval is now introducing a new line of tank cleaning equipment, Toftejorg advanced equipment for automatic tank cleaning. The Toftejorg products include rotating spray heads, rotating jet heads and accessories as well as assemblies for applications within the food, dairy, beverage, chemical, pharmaceutical, biotech, personal care and marine industries. The tank cleaning equipment is suitable for tanks ranging from 500 gallons to silos with a 500,000-gallon capacity.
Rotary spray heads clean tanks by spraying a fan of cleaning media against the tank walls while rotary jet heads spray jets of cleaning media. Cleaning fluids from both products reach every square inch of the tank wall with such force that they remove any residual material. This efficient cleaning action cuts energy requirements and cleaning time and the volume of cleaning media and water by up to 50 percent. This results in increased plant efficiencies, lower operating costs and significantly reduced waste. In addition, the cleaning systems can be fully automated which eliminates the risks involved for maintenance personnel when inside tanks and the risks from exposure to chemicals.
Alfa Laval recently acquired the Toftejorg Group, the world's largest producer of tank cleaning equipment, founded in 1957 and headquartered in Denmark. The Toftejorg Group develops, manufactures and market high-end automated tank cleaning equipment and systems
