Stainless Steel Spray Balls for Sparging and CIP Cleaning

8c3c93a1-b53a-4be0-b96b-30f2ecf67a80Thanks to HBF Reader Sam for this photo!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]

CIP (Clean in Place) Spray Balls are generally used for vessels that are too large to move.  Since they’re too large to move you… clean them in place.  If you have a larger setup, you could incorporate these into your system or routine to help clean your vessels more easily.

Seller QM Stainless on Amazon offers a variety of spray balls including stationary and rotary.

A couple of specific models to consider:

HBF Reader Sam is using – 0.5″ SUS304 Female 360 Degree Fix Spray Ball Stainless Tank Cleaning Ball – for sparging.  See photo above.

Sam Says…

“Funny timing – I recently purchased a fixed spray ball from QM Stainless on eBay – my original intent was to use it for a keg / carboy cleaner but have been playing with it in my mash re-circulation set-up. I screwed a spare male quick disconnect into the spray ball and held it in position over the tun. It worked so well that I am considering drilling a hole in the lid of my cooler and using it there permanently. Here’s a picture of it in action last Saturday.”

Update: from HBF Reader Chris…

By the way, I bought the rotating version of this spray ball with the idea of mounting it on my Mark II keg cleaner [HBF Review]. It works great! It can’t fit inside my glass carboys, but it fits inside my plastic carboys, buckets, kegs, etc, and it rotates around while spraying. I feel like this is a good upgrade for the Mark II keg cleaner because otherwise it just sprays up and sometimes doesn’t get all the nooks and crannies as efficiently as it could.
