Lechler precision nozzles – especially for tank and equipment cleaning – are made of extremely high-grade materials that are designed to meet high requirements such as resistance to cleaning chemicals or temperature influences. The large choice of different materials – e.g. 316L SS, PVDF, PEEK or PTFE – allows nozzle selection customized to the individual application and operating conditions. In addition, the materials used for the tank and equipment cleaning nozzles are perfectly matched to each other and are thus characterized by very low wear.
In addition to the requirements for material resistance and wear, the materials must also be food grade for use in the beverage, food and pharmaceutical industries. Depending on the application area, the materials must meet different demands. A large number of the materials used for Lechler tank and equipment cleaning nozzles comply with the requirements of the FDA or conform to (EC) 1935/2004.
Lechler‘s tank and equipment cleaning nozzles are designed so that they meet hygiene requirements. This is reflected, for example, in the self-draining function, minimized dead space in the nozzles as well as an external design without unnecessary gaps and edges. At the same time, the nozzles are designed with the lowest possible surface roughness. Lechler also offers specially certified nozzles for particular hygiene requirements. The "Teflon Whirly" and 527 series are 3A-certified, for example.
