The Troll Ball is a rotating cleaning nozzle whose ball head is equipped with drillholes instead of slots. The ball-bearing-free and wear-resistant drive system generates a slow rotation in which strong, bundled liquid jets with high impact force are formed. The individual jets cover each other, which means that a complete 360° cleaning action is achieved. Troll Balls are also available in 180° variants and with attached flat jet or bundle nozzles to improve coverage or increase the jet strength. Troll Ball rotating nozzles are robust and almost indestructible and can be easily serviced or repaired in the event of a defect. Every component of a Troll Ball is available as a spare part.

The simple and effective drive system of the TROLL BALL 3″ creates a slow and constant rotation.
This process provides continuous cleaning with different cleaning media and a wide temperature range. The TROLL BALL has few moving parts, providing a compact, reliable, and low-maintenance cleaning solution. The TROLL BALL is ideal as a replacement for fixed or rotating spray balls.

The cleaning fluid drives a simple motor that produces constant rotation of the ball head. The entire cleaning liquid flows with effective force through the few holes in the spray ball. The specially developed design of the bores creates a good jet strength with a minimum of liquid. An additional nozzle cleans the body and the inlet nozzles of the container. The high-energy drops provide very effective impact up to 3,5 m (r). This ensures reliable cleaning of containers up to 7 m in diameter with just a single nozzle.

The TROLL BALL meets the hygiene and material requirements of the FDA. It can be used in the pharmaceutical, food, biotech, beverage and many other hygiene-conscious industries. The TROLL BALL is available in 180° and 360° upwards and downwards versions and also as a Troll Ball 2″ version.
