As tank cleaning nozzles often remain permanently installed in the process tank, equally high requirements apply to tank cleaning nozzles with regard to the material. Highly corrosion-resistant special alloys such as the material Alloy 22 are ideally suited for demanding environmental conditions in the production process. Alloy 22 is highly resistant to many corrosive media under oxidizing and reducing conditions.
Furthermore, there is often an explosive atmosphere in these production processes due to the products to be processed or the cleaning media used. Cleaning nozzles used in potentially explosive atmospheres should be designed for such special conditions and should have ATEX approval.
Both factors must be taken into consideration when choosing the right tank cleaning nozzle – in addition to other process-specific factors. Lechler offers tank cleaning products that are both highly corrosion-resistant and ATEX-certified
