HydroClaw®

Clog-Resistant Tank Cleaning Nozzles

If particulates in your tank washing process are causing your current tank cleaning device to clog or seize during operation, BETE’s HydroClaw is the perfect solution.


HydroClaw Advantages

The unique HydroClaw tank washing nozzle contains no moving parts and is clog resistant. This design cleans tanks efficiently and eliminates the need for maintenance and downtime, which is often required with rotational tank cleaning devices.

The HydroClaw operates on low pressure/high flow, which allows for faster cleaning and reduced cycle times, which saves on water consumption, energy and chemicals. Ideal for tanks up to 10 ft (3m) in diameter.
 

Design Features of the HydroClaw Tank Washing Nozzles

  • Unique, patent-pending, clog-resistant design with no moving parts
  • HC-42 allows passage of particles 1/4” (6.4 mm) in diameter, HC-100 allows passage of particles over 1/4” (7.6 mm) in diameter – three times the free passage of a comparable spray ball
  • Made from FDA compliant 316L stainless steel for use in food-grade and sanitary Clean-In-Place (CIP) applications
  • Low pressure/high flow operation quickly cleans tank walls to reduce overall water consumption compared to a static spray ball
  • Self-draining and self-flushing
  • Laser-welded for durability
  • Available in a variety of connection sizes and types, including threaded, clip-on and welded
  • Clip-on nozzles include low-profile retaining pin for secure connection
  • Fits through compact openings: either 2-1/2" (63.5 mm) or 3" (76 mm) diameter
  • Optimal cleaning performance achieved at 30 psi (2 bar)
 

Spray Characteristics of HydroClaw Tank Washing Nozzles
