Tank cleaning equipment

Tripod

For temporary-mounting in a fixed location

There are two types of cleaning solutions, portable and permanently installed. Facilities which require cleaning at a high frequency tend to utilize a permanently installed Alfa Laval tank cleaning machine, whereas facilities that clean less regularly lean towards a portable solution. This allows for the purchase of one unit, to clean a variety of tanks. However, the design of a tank, rarely incorporates clean-ability, meaning inlets and entry ways are rarely in an ideal location for optimal cleaning.

For portable applications, regular tank entry, or climbing to the top of a tank to suspend the tank cleaning machine could become burdensome and counter productive. As a result Alfa Laval has come up with the Alfa Laval Gamajet Portable Cart or  Alfa Laval Gamajet Tripod.
