Let the Alfa Laval PlusClean® cleaning nozzle revolutionize tank cleaning in your hygienic processes. Paired with your top-mounted tank cleaning device, the PlusClean® smoothly integrates into the tank wall or bottom. When activated during Cleaning-in-Place (CIP), it hits shadow areas with a fan of pressurized cleaning media, guaranteeing 100% impact cleaning coverage, up to 80% savings in water and cleaning agent costs, and 0% contaminants.

Thorough tank cleaning eliminates the risk of contamination which can affect the productivity of your hygienic processes. Using the easy-to-install Alfa Laval PlusClean® cleaning nozzle effectively does away with virtually all contamination risks in your process tanks. With its optimized, high-impact spray pattern, the PlusClean® delivers 100% cleaning coverage in shadow areas, such as beneath agitator blades, coils and connections, that top-mounted tank cleaning devices miss. Faster, safer contaminant-free changeovers are now possible, boosting batch or continuous process productivity in the food, beverage and personal care industries. This increases product yield and speeds return on investment while lowering total cost of ownership.
The PlusClean® optimizes the cleaning efficiency of the primary cleaning device, regardless of whether a static spray ball, rotary spray head or a rotary jet head. Depending on the overall design of your tank, you can configure the cleaning nozzle either in the tank wall or on the tank bottom. Choose one of three different spray patterns and one of two different weld plates for mounting to customize your cleaning nozzle to your requirements.
Special product line
In addition to the standard Alfa Laval PlusClean® with a piston activated by the cleaning media, a special pneumatic version is available. The pneumatic version activates the piston using controlled air pressure. When used together with the Alfa Laval ThinkTop, you have a full overview of your tank cleaning process, including feedback signals such as open/closed and purging option.
Count on extended equipment performance and more uptime due to low-wear components that are easy to replace on site, minimizing downtime. The PlusClean® cleaning nozzle has no moving parts that extend into or retract from the tank. Durable, reliable genuine parts from Alfa Laval deliver outstanding performance, lower your total cost of ownership and preserve the value of your equipment throughout its entire life cycle.
How it works
The Alfa Laval PlusClean® cleaning nozzle is installed flush with the tank wall and/or tank bottom. Activated either by the cleaning media or by controlled air pressure, the nozzle creates a high impact force spraying cleaning media in a fan pattern directly onto the soiled area. Cleaning coverage is ensured through controlled and repeated rotation of the shaft and agitator blades.
Upon completion of the cleaning cycle, the integrated spring mechanism restores the piston to its original position, securely closing and sealing off the cleaning device. If purging is required, always operate with the actuator.
