Sensors

Pressure - Since pressure is a critical control point for washing kegs, the Tornado Keg Washer monitors this throughout the washing cycle.

Pre-wash tank level - This is monitored and automatically topped up if required during washes.

Detergent tank level - This is also monitored and automatically topped up if required during washes. Additional low-level protection is in place for the heating elements to ensure they are always covered.

Detergent temperature - This is measured constantly by the controller and displayed on the touchscreen. This ensures the correct temperature is maintained throughout the wash.

*All sensors come with a 5-year manufacturers warranty

 

Process

Detergent temperature - 0 to 80°c depending on the chemical used. Please consult your chemical supplier.

Hot final rinse - >80°c reduces the time to break down the detergent wash and ensures cask sterility is maintained.

Washing method - High-pressure washing at 5 to 6 bar combined with a pulsed sequence.

Wash nozzles - 360° full coverage nozzles mechanically cut away at solids as well as spraying the internal surface.

 

Heating options

Electrical - 3 phase electrical heater

Steam - Stainless steel steam coil

 

How does it work?

  1.  The operator loads the keg (neck down) centrally on the rise and fall table.

  2. Pressing the two buttons will then start the automated process.

  3. The keg clamps lower onto the head via the rise and fall table.

  4. The machine then goes through its recipe set timings and parameters, monitoring and controlling pressures, temperature and flow rates to deliver a washed and sterilised keg.

  5. At the end of the process, the keg is raised from the keg head and freed to slide from the raised loading table to the conveyor.
