Manually cleaning industrial tanks and totes is a time-consuming process. But the alternative — outsourcing tank and tote cleaning — is costly. The ideal solution offers a quick but effective clean at a reasonable price.
Enter the Alfa Laval Gamajet 9 Tote Blaster Tank Cleaning System. This automated cleaning device allows companies to clean their intermediate bulk containers (IBC) and totes in-house in as little as four minutes, eliminating costly outsourcing and time-consuming manual cleaning.
How it works
The Gamajet 9 is fluid-driven and can fit through small openings to enable easy cleaning of both small and large tanks. Using patented rotary impingement technology, the Alfa Laval Gamajet 9 rotates in a 360-degree repeatable and reliable pattern that ensures the entire interior, even the pesky, tough-to-reach top corners, is clean. And it can do this in one cleaning cycle, reducing operating time and costs.
Features and benefits
The Alfa Laval Gamajet 9 Tote Blaster Tank Cleaning System cleans totes and other vessels in four to 12 minutes, depending on the tote’s size. It offers power, with 12 pounds (5.5 kilograms) of cleaning force at 10 feet (three metres). Another bonus: it is compact, durable and easy to maintain, with few parts, which means fewer breakdowns and lower maintenance costs. Plus, it offers durability, and can be used in the harshest environments.
The Gamajet 9 is also available as a component of the Gamajet ToteBlast Station. This complete, all-in-one system comes equipped with everything you need to set up a tote cleaning station — the Gamajet 9, a high pressure vertical multi-stage pump, a starter panel and timer, a customized tote cover and the necessary flanges and hoses.
Ineffective cleaning methods can have direct repercussions on sustainability goals and the overall productivity of a facility. Using an Alfa Laval Gamajet 9 device can offer significant improvements in cost and productivity, even reducing water usage by as much as 80 per cent.
One particular customer in the chemical industry had been sending its dirty totes to its tote supplier for cleaning, and would sometimes clean them by hand in-house. The company purchased a Gamajet tank cleaning machine, which paid for itself in a week, and offered a faster, more effective clean.
The Alfa Laval Gamajet 9 Tote Blaster Tank Cleaning System and the Gamajet ToteBlast Station are available in Canada from John Brooks Company Limited. John Brooks is been a leading provider of spraying, pumping and filtering systems, as well as valves.
