Optimal Operation

The pressure range for the operation of a Chemitorus 50/75 is 1 – 4 bar at the cleaning nozzle.
With a flow rate of 15 – 67 liters/minute, a cleaning diameter of 1 – 3.3 meters is achieved.

Fast rotating Torus rotary nozzles produce a permanently uniform and instantaneous droplet-shaped liquid distribution. Intelligent fluid bearing makes these rotary nozzles extremely durable compared to their ball bearing counterparts. An extensive range of 360°/180° spray patterns and many connection types are available.
Some of these products are highly resistant to operation with compressed air or steam (PEEK). Torus cleaning nozzles are ideally suited for the pharmaceutical and chemical industries and meet the highest hygiene requirements. Torus or Chemitorus with C.PTFE rotor are at the same time FDA compliant and EX free. Torus rotary nozzles are available in Hastelloy C22.

The CHEMITORUS is suitable for low pressure applications with low water volume. The plastic construction and the possibility to operate the CHEMITORUS at low pressures and flow rates starting from 10L give it an advantage for many applications.
In operation, the cleaning liquid causes a rotor with slots to rotate rapidly, causing high-energy droplets to impact all around. The CHEMITORUS consists of only 2 parts and is ideal for impact cleaning and continuous cleaning with a strong cleaning effect. The TORUS cleans itself during operation. Due to the sliding bearing system of the TORUS, these nozzles can often be used for years with almost no wear. The TORUS also promises exceptional service life when used with compressed air or superheated steam sterilization and high temperatures (depending on the application).

The TORUS can replace static spray balls in vessels up to 3.3 meters and produces a full coverage distribution and good mechanical cleaning effect with a small amount of liquid. The TORUS is suitable for cleaning vessels and plant components in highly sensitive applications. It is compactly designed so that it can be installed inside pipelines. The TORUS is available in 3 different sizes.

The CHEMITORUS is made of FDA and/or ATEX certified materials. For the first time, ATEX and FDA certificates can be issued for these cleaning nozzles at the same time. The CHEMITORUS is available in 360° and 180° versions. The CHEMITORUS is also available as TORUS with stainless steel thread or Hastelloy and as TORUS 100.
