What are spray balls?
Spray balls are used to clean the inside of tanks and vessels by spraying the interior surfaces of the vessel with hot water and/or cleaning solutions at various rates in industries such as pharmaceutical, food, beer & wine, and dairy.
What are the differences between Static and Rotating spray balls?
Static spray balls typically rely on a high-volume, low-pressure cascading cleaning action wherein much of the mechanical energy comes from the sprayed-on solution running down the sides and surfaces of the tank being cleaned.
Rotating spray balls have low-volume, high-pressure spray with the spray nozzle spinning around to direct a jet of spray to all interior surfaces of the tank. Dynamic spray balls have more mechanical energy applied over a smaller surface area during cleaning.
