ProClean can-washer nozzle

Hypro EU of Cambridge has developed a nozzle to speed up can washing, clean more thoroughly and use less water in the process.

The ProClean nozzle is to be fitted as standard to induction hoppers supplied by Bedford-based Watson & Brookman — the supplier of most of the hoppers fitted to new British-built crop sprayers.

Worn, damaged or outmoded chemical induction hoppers can also be replaced with one of Watson & Brookman's 15-litre, 25-litre or 35-litre stainless steel units to give the same chemical filling and container rinsing efficiencies as a new sprayer.

Operators with any make of serviceable induction hopper could improve container rinsing performance by switching to the Hypro ProClean. Its 0.5 inch British standard pipe thread fits many can-washing valve couplings, but thread adaptors and push rings are available if needed. The nozzle retails for £30.42.
