Static vs. Rotational
Should I go with a nozzle that is static or one that rotates? Static spray balls are typically installed by tank manufacturers and although they are economical; they are only good for light rinsing. Static spray balls deliver a solid stream of spray and do not provide full coverage for cleaning. Rotating nozzles, on the other hand, spray the entire surface of the tank and provide more penetration for removing stubborn soils. There are three different types of rotational spray nozzles: Free spinning - This cleaning device is driven by the pressure of the water. The head of the nozzle rotates faster as the pressure increases. These nozzles clean best at low pressures of 40 to 60 psi and are perfect for small to medium size tanks.
Below is an example of one of our free spinning nozzles removing chocolate sauce.
Controlled rotation – The rotation of this nozzle is controlled by an internal turbine and it contains no gears. The slower rotation provides more impact and better spray coverage for removing very difficult soils like tannins and titrates. These nozzles can also be run at higher pressures, which will not affect the speed of the rotation.
