Twister orbital cleaner flowrates and diameter

Optimal operation

The pressure range for operating a Twister is 4 – 10 bar at the cleaning machine.
With a flow rate of 45 – 97 liters/minute, a cleaning diameter of 8 – 16 meters is achieved.

The Twister is a powerful jet cleaner with an orbital 360° spray pattern. An installation opening of only 100 mm is required to install a Twister. The Twister is driven by the cleaning medium at a pressure of 4 to 10 bar. A radial and axial rotation of the nozzle head is generated by turbine drives. This creates liquid jets aligned by four nozzles with a strong impact effect up to a diameter of 16 meters. With liquid jets running around, a complete spray pattern with full coverage is achieved within 2 to 3.5 minutes.

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

The use of the device is always resource-saving and takes place with the lowest wear and tear and maintenance costs. The Twister 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 device will always prove to be a reliable partner for your cleaning tasks. Optionally, the cleaning process of a Twister can be permanently and non-invasively monitored by SMW 100 or Vericlean. The Twister is one of the latest and most effective developments on the cleaning technology market.

Twister orbital cleaners are available with many connection variants. The Twister is very compact and can be installed in any position in vessels or equipment using a 3/4” threaded connection or a choice of cotter pin or clamp mounting. It can also be used on a lance or hanging from a hose. Common uses for this product are tanks and vessels in the brewing, beverage, dairy, food, pharmaceutical, chemical and transportation industries.

Connection Types

Connection type thread

Threaded connection

Twister standard devices are equipped with a 3/4″ cylindrical internal thread BSP (British Standard PIPE according to DIN ISO 228). The device is optionally available with a 3/4″ conical internal thread NPT (National Pipe Taper, American pipe thread for self-sealing connections).

Splint connection

The Twister orbital cleaner is optionally available with a 1″ 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 Twister is optionally available with a 1″ clamp connection. A clamp connection ensures the uncomplicated removal of the cleaning machine.
