ky Alfa Laval GJ A2
Optimal tank cleaning through 2" openings

Application
Designed to fit through a 5.08 cm (2”) sanitary fitting, the Alfa Laval GJ
A2 is ideal for retrofit applications to replace resource-heavy static
spray balls and costly manual cleaning. Compact and efficient,
the Alfa Laval GJ A2 can accommodate typical opening sizes while
delivering the improved cleaning effectiveness and range of rotary
impingement. The efficient and durable design is ideal for tank cleaning
in hygienic environments such as food and beverage and personal
care applications.

Working principle
The GJ range of high impact tank cleaning devices combine pressure
and flow to create high impact cleaning jets. Cleaning occurs at the
point at which the concentrated stream impacts the surface. It is this
impact and the tangential force that radiates from that point which
blasts contaminants from the surface, scouring the tank interior. In
conjunction with this impact, the device is engineered to rotate in a
precise, repeatable and reliable, 360° pattern. This full-coverage,
global indexing pattern ensures the entire tank interior is cleaned,
every time.

Standard Design
The choice of nozzle diameters can optimize jet impact length and flow rate at the desired pressure. As standard documentation, the Alfa Laval GJ A2
can be supplied with a “Declaration of Conformity” for material specifications.

TRAX simulation tool


TRAX is a unique software that simulates how the Alfa Laval GJ A2 performs in a specific tank or vessel. The simulation gives information on wetting
intensity, pattern mesh width and cleaning jet velocity. This information is used to determine the best location of the tank cleaning device and the correct
combination of flow, time, and pressure to implement.
A TRAX demo containing different cleaning simulations covering a variety of applications can be used as a reference and documentation for tank
cleaning applications. The TRAX demo is free and available upon request.
