Tempest orbital cleaner operating values

Optimal Operation

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

With a flow rate of 200 – 410 liters/minute, a cleaning diameter of 12 – 19 meters is achieved.

The Tempest is a powerful target jet cleaner with an orbital 360° spray pattern. The Tempest is driven by the cleaning medium at a pressure of 4 to 8 bar. Turbine-driven, a radial and axial rotation of the nozzle head is generated. This creates aligned jets of liquid through four long nozzles with a strong impact effect up to a diameter of 19 metres. By circulating jets of liquid, a completing spray pattern with high coverage and full coverage is thus produced within 5 to 9.5 minutes.

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

The use of the unit always conserves resources and requires minimal wear and maintenance. The Tempest 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 unit will always prove to be a reliable partner for your cleaning tasks. Tempest orbital cleaners are available in many connection variants. Optionally, the cleaning process of a Tempest can be permanently and non-invasively monitored by SMW 100 or Vericlean. The Tempest is one of the latest and most effective developments in the cleaning technology market.

Tempest orbital cleaners are available with many connection variants. is very compact and can be installed in any position in vessels or equipment using a 1,5” threaded connection or a choice of cotter pin or clamp mounting. It can also be used on a lance or hanging from a hose. Frequent areas of application for this product are tanks and containers in the brewing, beverage, dairy processing, food, pharmaceutical, chemical and transport industries as well as on ships.

Connection types

Connection type thread

Threaded connection

Tempest standard devices are equipped with a 1,5″ cylindrical internal thread BSP (British Standard PIPE according to DIN ISO 228). The device is optionally available with a 1,5″ conical internal thread NPT (National Pipe Taper, American pipe thread for self-sealing connections).

Splint connection

The Tempest orbital cleaner is optionally available with a 1,5″, DN40 or DN50 splint pin attachment. The splint pin attachment ensures that the cleaning machine is attached without dead space. Splint pin versions have an approx. 15% higher flow rate.

Klammerbefestigung Orbitalreiniger

Clamp connection

The Tempest is optionally available with a 1,5″ clamp connection. A clamp connection ensures the uncomplicated removal of the cleaning machine.
