Tank Cleaning Hose
Butterworth Tank Cleaning Hoses are designed and manufactured for use in marine and industrial cleaning applications where safety and strength are required. Butterworth Tank Cleaning Hoses are manufactured by leading hose manufacturers to Butterworth’s propriety specifications. Each hose is fully tested for operating pressure to 1000 psi and design conductivity at the time of manufacture. At the conclusion of the test, a Certificate with the serial number and test results accompany each Hose at the time of shipment. Standard lengths are 50ft, 75ft and 100ft. A full range of Accessories are available for use with Butterworth Tank Cleaning Hoses and Portable Tank Machines. A full 5 year unconditional warranty accompanies each Butterworth Tank Cleaning Hose.
Tank Cleaning Machine (Type: K / SK/ SSK)
The “K” machine’s primary construction material is Bronze alloys and employs an integrated turbine drive. The “Type K” Machine has the ability to clean tanks up to a capacity of 10,000,000 gallons (38,000m3) or higher when multiple machines are used.
The Butterworth “Type K” machine creates a pattern matrix similar to a ball of twine (see cleaning pattern simulation). A complete pattern is established when 63 axial revolutions of the body have been completed. During the process of this pattern development, 2 cycles are established with each cycle increasing the density of the pattern matrix.
Tank Cleaning Machine (Type: LT & LT-FT)
The Butterworth LT is a highly versatile machine and is applicable in most types of tanks for process, storage and transportation. It eliminates the necessity for manual cleaning of cooking kettles, larger process mixing vessels in the personal care industry, oil storage tanks, rail cars and tanker trucks and of course in brewery fermenters. In smaller vessel applications, only one machine is used. For larger vessels, multiple machines can be used to provide 100% coverage.
The Butterworth Type LT machine creates a pattern matrix similar to a ball of twine (see cleaning pattern simulation). Please note that this example shows a vertical tank. The machine is capable of cleaning horizontal, rectangular, and irregular shaped vessels also. A complete pattern is established when 65 axial revolutions of the body have been completed. During the process of this pattern build out, 4 cycles are established with each cycle increasing the density of the pattern matrix. The machines can be mounted vertically, horizontally or even upside down, to provide the appropriate coverage needed.
