Head provides complete 3-D coverage of the tank or reactor interior.

NLB Corp.’s Torrent 50 tank-cleaning head from delivers 3-D water jet action with the force of 600 hp water and fits through a tank or reactor opening as small as 6 inches (15 cm).

The Torrent 50, rated for pressures up to 20,000 psi (1,400 bar) and flows to 50 gpm (183 lm), has two high-velocity water jets that spin vertically while the head spins horizontally. This provides complete 3-D coverage of the tank or reactor interior that removes hardened resins, plastics and more. The process eliminates any need for personnel to enter the vessel.

The Torrent 50 has a stainless-steel body that is rugged, corrosion-resistant. It also features an improved seal design that is easier to change than the seals in older 3-D heads while providing longer life, and a magnetic brake system to control the rotation speed, according to NLB.
