Cyclone operating values

Optimal operation

The pressure range for operating a cyclone is 4 – 10 bar at the cleaning machine.

With a flow rate of 42 – 103 liters/minute, a cleaning diameter of 6 – 14 meters is achieved.

The Cyclone is an extremely small jet cleaner with an orbital 360° spray pattern. An installation opening of only 80 mm is required to install a Cyclone. The cyclone is driven by the cleaning medium at a pressure of 4 to 10 bar. A radial and axial rotation of the nozzle head is generated by turbine drives. This creates liquid jets aligned through four nozzles with a strong impact effect up to a diameter of 14 meters. With liquid jets running around, a complete spray pattern with full coverage is achieved within 3.5 to 6 minutes.

Thanks to optimal flow control, a smooth-running mechanism without ball bearings and a hygienic sealing concept, the energy used in the device unfolds in a strong cleaning effect. The orbital cleaning behavior enables the best possible use of the cleaning liquid or chemical additives. For use in hygiene-sensitive areas, the device keeps itself permanently clean with a self-cleaning nozzle and empties itself automatically after use in vertical operation.

The use of the device is always resource-saving and takes place with the lowest wear and tear and maintenance costs. The Cyclone meets the highest hygiene and safety standards and can be used in EX zones and FDA applications at the same time. During a long service life, this device will always prove to be a reliable partner for your cleaning tasks. Optionally, the cleaning process of a cyclone can be permanently and non-invasively monitored by SMW 100 or Vericlean. The Cyclone is one of the latest and most effective developments in the cleaning technology market.

Cyclone orbital cleaners are available in many connection variants. The Cyclone is very compact and can be installed in any position in vessels or equipment using a 3/4” threaded connection or a choice of cotter pin or clamp mounting. It can also be used on a lance or hanging from a hose. Common uses for this product are tanks and vessels in the brewing, beverage, dairy, food, pharmaceutical, chemical and transportation industries.

GEA Breconcherry, Gewindebefestigung

Threaded connection

Cyclone standard devices are equipped with a 3/4″ cylindrical internal thread BSP (British Standard PIPE according to DIN ISO 228). The device is optionally available with a 3/4″ conical internal thread NPT (National Pipe Taper, American pipe thread for self-sealing connections).

GEA Breconcherry, Splintbefestigung

Splint connection

The Cyclone is optionally available with a 1″ cotter pin attachment. The cotter pin attachment ensures that the cleaning machine is attached without dead space. Cotter pin versions have an approx. 15% higher flow rate.

GEA Breconcherry, Klammerbefestigung

Clamp connection

The Cyclone is optionally available with a 1″ clamp attachment. A clamp attachment ensures that the cleaning machine can be easily removed.
