The Gunclean Toftejorg i40 D is second generation dual nozzle tank cleaning machine. It is designed for use in fixed installations aboard chemical and product tankers as well as offshore applications.
Alfa Laval’s Gunclean Toftejorg i40 D is a high-impact, tank cleaning machine with dual nozzles. Its reliable operation and wear-resistant design make it suitable for use in all types of tank cleaning applications. Developed to meet the toughest tank cleaning requirements, it features a hysteresis clutch with built-in speed adjustment.
This innovative clutch construction is a substantial improvement over standard magnetic clutches, as it eliminates both slippage and the leakage risk of a speed adjustment shaft. In combination with optimized design and new, wear-resistant materials, it makes the Gunclean Toftejorg i40 D a simple and reliable choice for cost-effective operation.
How it works
A flow of cleaning media or product is used to drive a turbine connected to the Gunclean Toftejorg i40 D gear unit. Rotation speed can be adjusted during operation, thus making it possible to optimize the cleaning cycle.
In the first cycle, the nozzles lay out a coarse pattern on the tank surface. The following cycles make the pattern gradually more dense until a full pattern is reached after 4 cycles.
Unique hysteresis clutch
Use of a hysteresis clutch on the Gunclean Toftejorg i40 D means there is no need for the conventional configuration with a speed adjustment shaft at the turbine. This does away with shaft penetration at this key point, eliminating a key location for potential seal leaks and cross-contamination problems.
