High-Flow Head Improves Tank Cleaning
The Torrent, a new 3-D water jet tank cleaning head from NLB, has higher flow than previous models for more cleaning power, with advanced features to enhance performance and operating life. It is rated for flows up to 150 gpm (568 lpm) and operating pressures to 10,000 psi (690 bar).
The Torrent introduces new nozzle tips with carbide orifices that greatly improve the cohesiveness of the water jets and extend their reach. It also features improved seals and bearings for longer life and a stainless steel body that is durable and easy to clean. The long-life seals typically last three times longer than those in older 3-D heads, and are easier to change.
The combination of the higher flow, extended reach and 3-D action (the high-velocity nozzles rotate vertically while the head spins horizontally) easily removes hardened resins, plastics and more. Water jetting works significantly faster than other methods and is both environmentally-friendly and operator-friendly. It uses nothing but high-pressure water, and inserting the head into a tank or reactor on a telescoping lance eliminates the need for any personnel to enter the vessel.
The Torrent 3-D head is the latest accessory from NLB Corp., a global leader in high-pressure and ultra-high pressure water jet systems. NLB manufactures a full line of quality water jetting pump units and accessories for contractor and industrial uses, including tank and tube bundle cleaning, product removal, surface preparation, pavement stripe and rubber removal, concrete hydrodemolition, concrete and pipe cutting, and more.
