EXAIR manufactures three types of Atomizing Nozzles – Internal Mix, External Mix, and Siphon Fed. Within the Internal Mix family, there are two specialty nozzles, the Deflected Flat Fan and the 360° Hollow Circular patterns.
Internal Mix nozzles are for pressure fed applications not requiring independent air and liquid control.
The model AD2010SS is the No Drip version of the Deflected Flat Fan and is shown below. Our patented No Drip design prevents unwanted post spray drips from wasting expensive fluids or ruining product finishes. The benefit to this design is that no secondary compressed air line is necessary to activate the on/off valve for the liquid, which is the case for competitive nozzles.
The Deflected Flat Fan patterned nozzle is designed for applications where space is a limited. The spray pattern is at a right angle to the orientation of the nozzle, allowing the spray to be placed precisely where it is needed in tight quarters. They are ideal for coating the insides of enclosures and ductwork.
The model AT2010SS is the No Drip version of the 360° Hollow Circular and is shown below.
The 360° Hollow Circular patterned nozzle is designed for applications where the spray pattern is to be orientated away form the nozzle in all directions. They are ideal where a smooth and even coating is needed on the internal surface of a pipe or duct. They are also good for processed where a mist is needed over a large area, including dust suppression, humidification, and cooling.
The No Drip feature is a patented† design that has the added benefit of positively stopping the liquid flow when the compressed air is shut off. Post spray liquid flow can cause quality issues from unwanted drips on painted or coated surfaces. Also, the No Drip feature helps to conserve and save on liquid use, reducing costs of expensive coatings or chemicals.
When the compressed air supply is shut off, the No Drip nozzle positively seals off the flow of liquid, eliminating over spray and drips. The design allows for just one compressed air line, there is no need for an additional to control the No Drip mechanism.
