    29.03.2017   Save up to 60% time and 70% water with this new powerful tank cleaning machine    ( Company news )

    Company news Fast and cost effective cleaning
    Saving time and water are some of the KPIs which have the most attention in the hygienic industries. The new Alfa Laval TJ40G rotary tank cleaning machine uses a high-impact jet stream to effectively clean tough tank residues and minimize the risk of product contamination. This four-nozzle rotary jet head also cleans tanks 60% faster than static spray ball technology, which increases production uptime. And because it cleans faster, this new device uses less water and less cleaning agents thereby reducing operating costs by up to 70%.

    The Alfa Laval TJ40G is capable of handling tough tank residues as well as solids up to 1mm in the cleaning fluid in tank sizes 50-1000 m³. This is particularly important for demanding process lines, such as applications within the brewhouse, where both the size and the amount of particles may be re-circulated in cleaning media before completing the cleaning cycle.

    Complete self-cleaning system
    Not only does the Alfa Laval TJ40G rotary tank cleaning machine provide spotless cleaning of the tank interior, it also cleans itself – inside and out.
    Its hygienic self-cleaning construction ensures that the flow of the cleaning fluid reaches the exterior surfaces of the rotary jet head, as well as the critical interior components such as all bushings, bearings and inner surfaces. This minimizes the risk of product contamination and ensures a high product quality.

    Alfa Laval's rotary tank cleaning machines are designed with numerous of features to ensure self-cleaning of the machine, such as directional flow from small jets in the hub that cleans the exterior of the machine. A low pressure loss over the machine provides increased cleaning efficiency compared with other tank cleaning machine running at same inlet pressure. This result in lower cleaning cost as the unit can run at lower pressure/flow compared to other tank cleaning machines.

    All Alfa Laval rotary tank cleaning devices comply with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).

    09.02.2017   Want to reduce the risk of unplanned GPHE downtime? This is the best advice you will get all year    ( Company news )

    Company news Getting the best plate heat exchanger performance requires preventive maintenance, especially for hygienic applications within the food, dairy, beverage, pharmaceutical and home & personal care industries. Each process system, however, is different with different parameters that affect the heat transfer and sealing efficiencies of the plates and gaskets.

    Photo: Alfa Laval gasketed plate heat exchanger

    A gasket, its material properties and its construction are specifically selected to provide optimal sealing performance for its intended application. Knowing exactly when to replace gaskets is almost impossible since the timing varies, depending on the application. But over time, all gaskets wear due to natural aging as well as the temperature, pressure and stress of normal operating conditions.

    Without preventive maintenance, you risk unplanned downtime that can be costly.

    Things to consider:
    • Temperature and pressure: Higher operating temperatures and pressure cause more wear and tear on the gaskets.
    • Compression: Gaskets are subjected to local stress from the moment you first clip them on to and tighten the plates.
    • Store spare gaskets in a sealed bag, in a dry, cold and dark place, and away from ozone-producing equipment such as machines or light armatures.

    23.12.2016   This is it! Don't let poor tank cleaning performance waste your time, water and energy     ( Company news )

    Company news When the water jet, coming from a rotary jet head cleaning device, hits the tank wall, it generates a force of impact (N). After impact, the jet spreads out and creates a cleaning footprint with high wall sheer stress force (Pa). As the cleaning machine is rotating in a 3D motion, the footprint is "moving" around inside the tank in a predefined pattern and cleans the entire tank surface with high wall shear stress. The further away from the impact point the less wall shear stress (mechanical action) is achieved.

    Traditional spray balls are static. This means the majority of the tank cleaning energy comes from water cascading down over the tank wall at low wall shear stress. This way of cleaning requires large amounts of time, water and energy in order to compensate for the poor cleaning performance.

    One cleaning cycle might be sufficient
    Because of the unique design of Alfa Laval Rotary Jet Head, the first - out of eight - cleaning cycles is hitting the tank wall at an evenly dense cleaning pattern throughout the entire tank surface. The distance between the footprint tracks is relatively wide, but if the product is easy to clean off (e.g. milk or syrup) it only requires little wall shear stress to be removed. This means the pre-rinse cleaning of the tank is done using only one cleaning cycle and you are saving time, water and energy.

    One cleaning cycle typically takes 1-3 min. and now that the product is effectively removed from the tank wall, the jet will offset the second cleaning cycle and thereby minimizing the distances between the jets. More cleaning cycles are needed for products that are harder to clean.

    Payback time
    Compared to a static spray ball, the Alfa Laval Rotary Jet Head is a higher initial investment, but its low operating cost gives a short payback time - often less than one year.

    22.01.2016   Protect your employees, equipment and the environment     ( Company news )

    Company news To complete the strongest safety valve portfolio in the market, we now introduce a true spring-loaded safety valve: The Alfa Laval Safety Valve.

    This new valve is designed to protect both equipment and people. In a potentially dangerous situation it will open at a predetermined set pressure. The compressed spring force, keeping the valve closed, is forced open when pressure builds up at the inlet of the safety valve. As these forces balance out, the valve will discharge and decrease pressure, ultimately reclosing as the system returns to normal.

    Key features for your safety
    - Dedicated and reliable protection against costly and devastating accidents
    - Calibrated to the desired pressure set point, sealed and delivered with a PED certificate
    - Hygienic design eliminates unsanitary leaks and overflow during and after pressure peaks

    Complements the Alfa Laval Scandi Brew range
    Recently, we introduced a range of Alfa Laval Scandi Brew anti vacuum and overpressure valves into our hygienic valve portfolio:
    • Alfa Laval SB Pressure Relief Valve
    • Alfa Laval SB Anti Vacuum Valve
    • Alfa Laval SB Anti Vacuum House

    These safety valves protect against overpressure in tanks and pipelines caused by e.g. overfilling or fermentation processes. They also protect against implosion due to e.g. vacuum caused by cold rinsing after hot cleaning or blocking of gas supply during emptying.

    The Alfa Laval Safety Valve can be combined with the Alfa Laval SB Anti Vacuum House into a combined safety valve, protecting against both vacuum and overpressure in one hygienic valve solution with a single tank connection.
