Optimal Operation

The pressure range for operating a Turbo SSB 40 is 2 – 5 bar at the cleaning nozzle.

With a flow rate of 35 – 62 liters/minute, a cleaning diameter of 2 – 3 meters is achieved

The Turbo SSB 40 is a slowly rotating rotary nozzle. During operation, liquid flowing through it sets the spherical head into a steady braked rotation. In the process, flat jets of liquid with a long range emerge through slots. The slow rotation of the nozzle favours an effective bundled liquid impact with a high impact effect. This achieves a cleaning effect of up to 3 metres in diameter. The Turbo SSB is equipped with an extremely low-wear slide bearing system that is permanently flushed with liquid, thus achieving extremely long service lives. Even brief exposure to steam or compressed air does not cause any damage. Mostly, even after years of permanent use in a wide variety of industrial applications, no operational failures caused by wear have been detected.

The nozzle can be easily cleaned of solids by means of a removable ball head. The Turbo SSB meets the highest hygiene standards as well as FDA requirements and is suitable for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. Turbo SSB are available in 3 sizes and many connection types. Common applications for Turbo SSB 40 rotary nozzles are found in the dairy, food, beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical industries for cleaning production, process or transport containers. We recommend installing a 500 micron filter/screen in the CIP supply line close to the nozzle to protect it from clogging or damage by particles.

Threaded Connection

Turbo SSB 40 standard devices are equipped with a 3/8″ cylindrical internal thread BSP (British Standard PIPE according to DIN ISO 228). The device is optionally available with a 3/8″ conical internal thread NPT (National Pipe Taper, American pipe thread for self-sealing connections).

Splint Connection

The Turbo SSB 40 is optionally available with 1/2″, DN10, DN15 or DN20 Split pin attachment. The Split pin attachment ensures that the cleaning nozzle is attached without dead space. Split pin versions have an approx. 15% higher flow rate compared to other conection types.
