Improve your plant's production efficiency by using Alfa Laval tank cleaning technology

Alfa Laval tank cleaning technology enables ethanol producers to make radical changes to their cleaning procedures. The rapid, automated cleaning procedures now available mean that the time needed for cleaning between batches is shorter. This leads to increased production efficiency and lower costs.

For this application, the spray ball technology currently available has proven ineffective because the spray ball does not provide any impact effect on the surface of the fermenters. This means that effective cleaning then takes much longer.

By installing Alfa Laval rotary jet heads inside the fermenters, it is now possible to carry out such tank cleaning both rapidly and automatically. This specialist equipment provides 360° indexed impact cleaning that is defined over a preset time period.


Toftejorg rotary jet heads ensure consistent performance and high cleaning efficiency for use across all the process industries. This ensures better end-product quality, greater overall output and reduced operating costs.
