Tanks and mixers are used during the production processes in most industries. While the products in the tanks vary, the challenge remains the same: how to clean your tank efficiently?

Based on Spraying Systems Co’s experience with different sectors and considering Sinner's circle (which deals with the factors that should be considered for optimal cleaning), the company has separated four main aspects that should be taken into consideration when choosing your ideal tank cleaning nozzle.


The available time for cleaning your tank is crucial for selecting the equipment you need. A long cleaning process has a big impact on productivity but a short cleaning process might not deliver the required results - and is likely to be less sustainable. 


Hot water is a known solution for removing residues. But beware! Always observe the proper temperature for your equipment. The costs involved in heating the liquid is another important factor to consider.


With some types of residues, it is necessary to resort to chemicals for better cleaning results. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to the material of your equipment and its resistance to corrosive and acid products.


When we talk about tank cleaning, impact is the aspect that will bring more results and savings to the cleaning. Selecting the ideal spray impact reduces the use of chemicals, provides a shorter cleaning cycle and consequently limits water and energy usage.

Selecting the ideal equipment for your operation 

At Spraying Systems Co we have a large range of tank and tote cleaning solutions. Whether your operations require gentle rinsing or the removal of tough residues, we have the right product for any tank measuring up to 30 m in diameter.

When choosing the equipment for your operation's tanks, you should ideally look for a model that will perform efficient cleaning in the least amount of time, with the least amount of resources and with a high impact. 

The basics sound very simple but unfortunately, we replace inefficient tank cleaning solutions, specifically static spray balls, on a daily basis. If you want to make sure that you’re getting the most out of your tank cleaning solution be sure to contact your local spray specialist. We offer no charge onsite tank cleaning audits where our experts can help you understand the characteristics of your tank cleaning operation and help you meet your goals.
