At EXAIR, we know compressed air, and we’ve been helping customers around the world get the most out of their compressed air systems since 1983. It was only logical that, about ten years ago, we got into using compressed air for liquid atomization. If you’re looking to spray a liquid in a fine mist with a controllable pattern & flow rate, there are many advantages to using compressed air to atomize it:
- Maximum dispersion
- Optimal, efficient consumption
- Small droplet size
Since their introduction, EXAIR has come to offer 142 distinct models of Air Atomizing Spray Nozzles, and, along the way, we leveraged our engineering, machining, and manufacturing prowess to gain position as an industry leader in liquid spraying. So much so, that, earlier this year, we introduced a spraying product line that doesn’t require compressed air: the FullStream Cone Liquid Atomizing Nozzles. Instead of using the energy of compressed air to effect atomization, these use the energy of the liquid’s pressure and flow to change the continuous stream of liquid flow entering the nozzle into a conical spray as it exits to atmospheric pressure. Here’s how it works:
While Air Atomizing Spray Nozzles maintain their advantage of a smaller droplet size (ours consistently make droplets under 100 microns in size,) there are clear benefits in certain applications to the FullStream Cone Liquid Atomizing Nozzles:
- Higher liquid flow rates
- Increased liquid coverage
- More compact design
These are all important in applications like quenching, cooling, foam breaking, lubricating, degreasing, and sanitizing. All stainless steel construction means they’ll stand up to a variety of chemicals…both in what’s being sprayed, and in the environment in which they’re installed.
If you have a liquid that needs sprayed, EXAIR has an engineered solution. Call an EXAIR Application Engineer today to find out more.
