Turbo SSB 125 slotted spray ball
The Breconcherry Turbo SSB 125 is the latest addition to Tecpro’s comprehensive range of specialist tank cleaning solutions. Fitted with a 1.25” BSP female connection, the Turbo SSB 125 generates a stronger impingement force with a cleaning throw length of five metres at 4 bar.
“The Turbo SSB 125 can powerfully clean vessels up to ten metres in diameter,” says Graeme Cooper, Managing Director of Tecpro Australia. “This capability means it will be of tremendous value to those working in industries where larger scale, thorough cleaning is critical.”
The Turbo SSB 125 works by using a slow, constant rotation, which allows longer chemical dwell times and improved cleaning action. It also features high impact fan jets that cut down on cleaning time.
As with the other smaller-sized Turbo SSB heads, the new 125 version has the same unique hydraulic bearing design with no ball bearings. “The fact that it does not contain ball bearings prolongs its life and also eliminates the risk of contamination caused by degradation of bearings,” says Cooper. “This low wear design requires minimal maintenance, with no spare parts required.”
The drive chamber contains a unique pressure regulation system that helps to keep the rotation speed consistent under differing pressure, meaning the fan jets work more effectively due to their better jet peripheral velocity.
Constructed from Stainless Steel 316L, PTFE, or C-PTFE, the Turbo SSB 125 has a 360° spray pattern. It allows a maximum liquid temperature of 95° centigrade and a maximum ambient temperature of 140° centigrade. Wash f luid is directed through the slots on the rotating ball, making it ideal for burst rinsing or prolonged, strong impact washing.
“The Turbo SSB 125 has a cleaning radius of five metres at 4 bar, whilst for simply wetting a tank surface, the radius is eight metres at 4 bar,” says Cooper. “Its low speed, high volume slotted spray ball design means it conforms with the highest standards of hygiene and purity making it suitable for a large number of applications across the pharmaceutical, biotech, food and beverage industries.”
