How to choose a tank cleaning nozzle

How to choose a tank cleaning nozzle – the following four aspects need to be considered

Tank cleaning nozzle is one of the commonly used equipment in industrial production, its function is to clean the residue and dirt inside the tanks. When choosing nozzles for tank cleaning, you need to consider a number of factors, including nozzle material, specifications, spray angle, spray effect and so on.
The following is a detailed description of how to choose a tank cleaning nozzle.

Materials of nozzles

Usually stainless steel, brass, plastic and so on.
Stainless steel nozzles have the advantages of high corrosion resistance, good heat resistance, strong abrasion resistance, etc. They are suitable for cleaning of most acidic and alkaline solutions.
Brass nozzles have better corrosion resistance and good abrasion resistance, suitable for some specific occasions of cleaning.
Plastic nozzles are cheap and lightweight, but easy to aging, suitable for some temporary cleaning work.

Specifications of nozzles

One of the factors to be considered. The specification of a nozzle usually refers to its caliber size, which is the diameter of the nozzle. In general, the larger the nozzle caliber, the thicker the jet of water will be, and the cleaning effect will be better.
However, the nozzle caliber should not be too large, otherwise it will lead to excessive wear of the nozzle and waste of water.

Angle of spray

Refers to the angle between the water stream ejected from the nozzle and the horizontal plane. Generally, the larger the spray angle, the larger the cleaning range. However, too large an angle of spraying can lead to rapid wear of the nozzle and waste of water.

Effects of spraying

Including the uniformity, range and penetration of the water stream. If the spray is not effective, it can lead to incomplete cleaning of the inside of tanks or waste of water.


Several factors need to be considered when choosing tank cleaning nozzles, including nozzle material, specifications, spray angle and spray effect.
You need to choose the right one according to the actual needs and situations in order to achieve the best cleaning effect and save water.
