VARITOP® Tank Safety Systems- Tank Cleaning
GEA Tuchenhagen

The VARITOP® Tanktop System may be equipped with spray balls or rotating jet cleaners, always in connection with the same basic components. In contrast to spray balls, where the cleaning effect is achieved by wetting the tank wall, rotating jet cleaners have the advantage of an additional mechanical cleaning effect by the slowly rotating fan-shaped jet and the associated interval rinsing. Optimal cleaning provides highest plant availability and product quality. GEA Tuchenhagen rotating jet cleaners are available with function monitoring as an option. Each cleaner, whether a cleaning lance or a jet cleaner, can be adapted to the customers requests. A fixed cleaning lance or a rotating jet cleaner can maintain an optimal introduction length and an optimised spray ball.

VARITOP® Tank Safety Systems- Safety Valve 488
GEA Tuchenhagen

In order to avoid unallowable overpressure, VARITOP® Tanktop Systems exclusively use modern spring-loaded safety valves.

The installation position of safety valves may be vertical or horizontal so that they fit perfectly into the given place of installation. As a matter of principle, the set response pressure is lead-sealed. Optional equipment and connection fittings are available, such as CIP module, pneumatic lifting actuator and feedback of the valve position. If a vacuum occurs in the tank without protection, the tank or the product may get damaged or the product may degas and get damaged.
