If you follow our blog, Twitter, or Facebook pages, you may have seen us mentioning recent nominations for Plant Engineering Product of the Year Awards. 2015 will mark the 28th anniversary for this award, in which Plant Engineering readers select the most outstanding new products that help them do their jobs smarter, safer, more efficiently, and more productively.
Considering the pre-qualifiers for such an award, it makes sense that EXAIR products would show up, and show up repeatedly. This year our No-Drip Atomizing Spray Nozzles have been nominated as a finalist in the Fluid Handling category.
Products in this field are recognized to present improvement potential, allowing users to create a more innovative process. EXAIR No-Drip Atomizing Spray Nozzles do so by providing effortless integration of controlled liquid spraying.
Compressed air and pressurized (or non-pressurized) liquid are plumbed to the nozzle. When compressed air is flowing, liquid will flow as well. When compressed air flow stops, liquid flow stops. Immediately.
For an end user of this product, this means that a precise volume of a specific liquid can be sprayed in a given time (duty cycle), with complete control before, during, and after nozzle activation.
The key to adding this innovation rests in the proprietary, patented (#9,156,045) design of EXAIR’s No-Drip Atomizing Spray Nozzles. Our engineers have worked tirelessly to create a stand-alone nozzle capable of controlling liquid flow without requiring a liquid control solenoid.
The viability of these nozzles has been recognized by Plant Engineering as an innovative new product in 2015. If you agree and would like to cast a vote for EXAIR, please click here.
