Rotary Jet Head for Industrial Tank

Rotary Jet Head for Industrial Tank


Toftejorg rotary jet heads ensure consistent performance and high cleaning efficiency for use across all the process industries. This ensures better end-product quality, greater overall output and reduced operating costs.

Cost -effective cleaning

Toftejorg rotary jet heads provide high cleaning efficiency at significantly reduced cycle times to meet the tank-cleaning requirements of various process industries ­­­– from the pulp and paper and chemical processing industries to the bioethanol and starch industries. Toftejorg rotary jet heads also provide measurable savings by cutting energy, chemicals and water consumption for virtually any tank size and configuration.

To achieve the best cleaning results, Toftejorg rotary jet heads use an optimized jet impact pattern to ensure efficient distribution of rinse water to all inner tank surfaces. The high-impact dense spray pattern removes any residue after the production cycle more quickly and effectively than the much more expensive and time-consuming cleaning methods of soaking in chemicals or manual cleaning. Self-draining and self-cleaning, inside and out, all Toftejorg rotary spray head devices comply with Good Manufacturing Practice. The Alfa Laval Rotacheck system verifies every cleaning cycle to ensure compliance with today’s strict hygiene standards.

Performance reliability and long service life

Capable of operating at pressures of less than 0.3 bar, Toftejorg rotary jet heads offer very low inner resistance. However, for optimal cleaning performance, the recommended operating pressure is between 5 and 12 bar. For over half a century, rotary jet head and rotary spray head technology has proven successful in providing reliable and repeatable cleaning performance and a long service life.

Cost-effective maintenance with minimal downtime

Proper maintenance is critical to optimizing any tank cleaning system, improving performance and extending nozzle life. Spare part service kits are available with full parts traceability to facilitate parts replacement and provide customers with complete documentation. Upon request, a video clip of maintenance procedures can be supplied. 

High product integrity

To ensure product integrity and extend equipment service lifetime, all Toftejorg rotary spray head devices are made of safe and non-reactive hygienic materials. Upon request, 3.1.B certificates to show conformance with EN 10204 and ATEX category 1 certificates for to show conformance with the Atex 94/0/EC Machinery Directive can be supplied.


All Toftejorg rotary jet heads are supplied with operator’s manual, CAS selection criteria (CAS is Alfa Laval´s design and selection tool)  and appropriate certificates, such as 3.1B or ATEX certificates. To determine the right parameters for a specific tank, optional TRAX software may be used to simulate actual cleaning performance of a specific Toftejorg rotary jet head configuration – prior to finalizing specifications and before installation.

Supply and delivery

Available in wide range of sizes and configurations, Toftejorg rotary jet heads provide coverage for virtually any tank size. All standard components are kept in stock to shorten lead times and prevent unplanned downtime. Most standard configurations can be supplied within a few days.

Part of a broad range of tank cleaning devices

Alfa Laval offers a comprehensive range of portable and fixed tank cleaning devices for use in the process industries. These include:

  • Toftejorg Rotary Spray Heads (Dynamic tank cleaning devices)
  • Toftejorg Rotary Jet Heads (Dynamic tank cleaning devices)
  • Toftejorg Static Spray Balls (Static tank cleaning devices)

To meet the specific and varied requirements of the process industries, Alfa Laval can customize tank cleaning equipment solutions based on our extensive product range, which has proven successful for the marine, sanitary and pharmaceutical industries.

How it works


Toftejorg rotary jet heads provide high-impact, full-coverage tank cleaning. The heads apply a carefully programmed jet of cleaning fluid that impacts the entire inner surface of the tank over a designated time period.

The flow of the cleaning fluid makes the nozzles perform a geared rotation around the vertical and horizontal axes. In the first cycle, the nozzles lay out a coarse pattern on the tank surface. Subsequent cycles gradually make the pattern more dense, until a full pattern is reached after eight cycles. This all takes place automatically and provides users with an effective path to quality assurance guarantees in tank cleaning, complete with all the necessary documentation.

Toftejorg rotary jet heads are ideal for cleaning processing, storage and transportation tanks and other vessels used in process, sanitary, pharmaceutical and other industries.
