Sebastian, FL - Clipdisc clean-in-place (CIP) sanitary tank washers from advanced cleaning equipment resource Chemdet, Inc., feature an ultra hygienic, patented design that delivers a vigorous cleaning action in a high density, 360° wash pattern at low flow rates to ensure the complete removal of cheese, whey and other byproducts from deep and enclosed make vats, finishing vats and conveyors after manufacturing. Specified by global cheese equipment manufacturer Damrow, Inc., Fond du Lac, Wis., the Clipdiscs are included as standard on the OEM's Double-O make vats for their cleaning effectiveness and the resulting reductions in end user labor and cleaning fluid costs.
Engineered to meet rigorous USDA, FDA and 3A material and design standards for sanitary food and dairy processing, the maintenance-free Clipdiscs eliminate screw threads, ball bearings and other debris-entrapping orifices, boasting only one moving part, a chemically inert, food grade polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) disc that rotates on a 316 stainless steel shaft. The unique Clipdisc design utilizes the cleaning fluid to drive, hydraulically balance and lubricate the precision-shaped, food grade disc, eliminating ball bearings, reducing the potential for wear and extending operating life. By enabling the cleaning fluid to perform as the lubricant, the sanitary Clipdisc tank washers eliminate the need for grease or oil lubricants, delivering important safeguards against possible contamination and further reductions in maintenance costs.
The sanitary Clipdiscs channel the cleaning fluid through an internal water vane onto the disc, which instantly rotates, dispensing a sphere of heavy, fast moving droplets onto the entire internal surface of the vat simultaneously, including the inlet tube and connection. The Clipdiscs operate at pressures ranging from 20 to 60 psi and flow rates from 22 to 67 gpm with a cleaning radius from 6.5 to 7.5 feet and a wetting radius from 9.5 to 11 feet at operating temperatures up to 203°F and ambient temperatures up to 284°F.
