Optimal Operation

The pressure range for operating a Torus 100 is 1 – 6 bar at the cleaning nozzle.
With a flow rate of 50 – 118 liters/minute, a cleaning diameter of 2 – 4,8 meters is achieved.

The fast-rotating Torus 100 rotary nozzles create a permanently uniform and instantaneously droplet-shaped liquid distribution. Intelligent fluid bearing design 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 1000 cleaning nozzles are ideally suited for the pharmaceutical and chemical industries and meet the highest hygiene requirements. Torus or Chemitorus Nozzles with C.PTFE rotor are also FDA compliant and EX free. Variants of Torus rotary nozzles are available in Hastelloy C22.

The TORUS 100 is suitable for low pressure applications with medium water volume. The ability to operate the TORUS 100 at even low pressures and flow rates starting at 50L gives it an advantage for many applications, installation is simple with a Split pin mounting. In operation, the cleaning fluid causes a rotor with slots to rotate rapidly, causing high-energy droplets to impact all around. The TORUS 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 tanks up to 4.8 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 TORUS 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 TORUS is available in 360° and 180° versions. The TORUS is also available as TORUS 50 and TORUS 75 with 3/8″ and 1/2″ connection or as CHEMITORUS 50/75.

GEA Breconcherry Torus BSP Gewindebefestigung

Threaded Connection

Torus 100 standard units are equipped with 3/4″ cylindrical female thread BSP (British Standard PIPE according to DIN ISO 228). Optionally, the device is available with 3/4″ tapered female thread NPT (National Pipe Taper, American pipe thread for self-sealing connections).

GEA Breconcherry Torus PF Splintbefestigung

Split pin Connection

Torus 100 ist optionally available with 1″ Split pin mount. The Split pin connection 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.
