The Paint Line Engineering Manager for a major agricultural & industrial equipment manufacturer wanted to improve the efficiency of their paint lines. They had “halo” systems through which large parts passed for primer & paint coatings, which were equipped with inexpensive liquid-only spray nozzles:
You can get a whole handful of these and it’ll still cost you less than one of our Atomizing Spray Nozzles will. If you don’t have any particular concerns about efficiency, spray pattern adjustment, droplet size or flow control (and a lot of applications don’t require this, and that’s fine,) then these will work GREAT for you. And again, they’re abundant and cheap.
That wasn’t the case here – turns out, good quality paint is expensive, and every drop wasted adds up. Getting a fine, even coating on parts of different sizes & shapes, every time, requires precision control of the flow pattern. And design of an automated system benefits from a wide selection of options to choose from.
Enter the EXAIR line of Atomizing Spray Nozzles. With (90) models to choose from, we can cover (literally) darn near any spraying application you can come up with. If you know what flow rate and/or spray pattern you’re looking for (like a Paint Line Engineering Manager would,) then selection is quick & easy. Paint consumption is down, quality is up…and the reliability of the new system means they’re spending less time and resources on cleaning & maintenance. For the record, the halo system ended up looking like this:
