Systematic high-pressure tank cleaning from URACA

cleaning the insides of transport vessels, goods wagons, road tankers and tank wagons

Almost all deposits in road tankers, containers, tank wagons and other vessels can be removed with high-pressure water. A high-pressure plunger pump presses water through the nozzles of the URACA TWK tank cleaning head at a pressure of up to 1,600 bar. The water jet cuts through the deposits, and its defined motion sequence guarantees comprehensive removal of these dirt deposits. Due to the EC-type examination certificate in line with the ATEX Directive, various tank cleaning heads can be used in all explosion protection zones (except in mining). They can also be used in explosive atmospheres caused by gases, vapours, mists and dust.

We have developed the TWK18-500 and TWK13-1200, easy-to-maintain tank cleaning heads designed for mobile use and with service providers in mind. The rotor speed’s wide range of settings and the high flow volumes make these models powerful cleaners that cause few pressure losses.

Cleaning the insides of the tanks with high-pressure water is an environmentally friendly method, which does not require the use of chemicals, mechanical tools or boiling. Rather than throwing away the accrued cleaning water in its entirety, the dirt particles are separated and disposed of. Compared to conventional methods, high-pressure cleaning is known for its considerably shorter cleaning times and a better cleaning effect.

The correct position of the tank cleaning head is essential for optimum cleaning. The positioning devices and reel systems, which are individually adapted to the tank’s shape, enable the cleaning process to be individually tailored to each container. The stroke and angle of the SPE25 positioning device are easy to adjust so that the tank cleaning head can be moved to the correct position in the tank.

This enables individual customer-specific cleaning solutions to be implemented for fast and effective cleaning. Increased productivity and the avoidance of impurities in the product to be transported lead to short payback periods.
