Sweeper Jet
  • System approach to basin cleaning
  • Keeps solids in suspension and moves to filter for removal
  • Unique design maximizes energy output to provide wider sweeping
  • Venturi effect creates higher flow through nozzle
  • Inert material allows for broad range of applications
In order for a cooling tower filter to do an effective job removing solids and contaminants from the cooling tower basin, solids must be directed toward the filter inlet.

PEP's new InterSeptor® Sweeper Jet nozzles have a uniquely designed elliptical discharge outlet that directs basin water toward the filter inlet in a flat fan pattern. The elliptical pattern sweeps a much greater path width, achieving a significant reduction in stagnant areas between nozzles. By directing solids toward the filter system suction intake, an InterSeptor® Sweeper Jet system is a cost-effective method for preventing build-up of dirt, scale, airborne debris, sediment and other contaminants in cooling tower basins, sumps and machinery reservoirs.

Using the Venturi Principle, Interceptor® Sweeper Jets create a negative pressure region at the nozzle outlet, thereby inducing ambient water into the elliptical discharge. For every gallon of water pumped through the nozzle, five gallons of water are produced at the sweeper jet's elliptical discharge.

InterSeptor® Sweeper Jets are installed into a pipe that runs along the cooling tower basin bottom. Clamp-on swivel mounts are available to direct the sweeping path into hard-to-reach areas and to accommodate irregular-shaped basins.

PEP designs sweeper jet systems tailored to the given application. Basin size and shape, liquid depth, competing flow characteristics, solids loading and other site-specific criteria are examined for optimal flow and cleaning results. From there, PEP determines the correct sweeper jet size, quantity and placement.

An InterSeptor® Sweeper Jet system combined with a properly sized and fully integrated filtration system will assure cleaner water, reduced plugging and fouling, and improved heat transfer efficiency. Suspended particulate removal also optimizes chemical usage.
