Are you tired of your dripping nozzle leaving puddles on your equipment and making a mess? Do the liquids you use to treat or coat your materials cost you a great deal of money? EXAIR’s No Drip Atomizing Spray Nozzles have been engineered eliminate drips; these patented nozzles contain a spring mechanism that when the air pressure reaches above 30 psig the valve will open allowing the liquid to escape out.
EXAIR No Drip Air Atomizing Spray Nozzles come in three styles. Internal mix, External mix and Siphon fed.
One of the most commonly used types of No Drip Atomizing Spray Nozzles is the Internal Mix. The Internal Mix nozzle mixes the liquid and the air inside the cap and produces the finest droplet size out of the three. Due to the fact that the liquid and air are mixed in the cap, Internal Mix nozzles are used on liquids that have a lower viscosity (less than 300 cP). This means that they are usually used on liquids such as water, water soluble/diluted lubricants, lightweight oils, or rust inhibitors.
External Mix No Drip Atomizing nozzles have the highest flow rates and allow the air and liquid flows to be adjusted independently. These are best when precise liquid flow is needed. External mix nozzles can be used when the liquid viscosity is above 300 cP.
Siphon Fed No Drip Atomizing nozzles require no liquid pressure and can be use dwith gravity fed liquids or siphon liquid from a height as much as 36 in. (91cm). These can be used with liquids up to 200 cP.
Or any application where drips can harm a products finish or waste valuable liquids.

Atomizing spray nozzles atomize fluids to create a fine spray in a variety of patterns for a variety of uses. They are commonly used to mark products, paint or coat, cool, reduce dust, lubricate and clean parts.
With the numerous types of Atomizing Nozzlessold by EXAIR, it can be challenging to shift through all the information. We can help you to narrow down the field to quickly find the correct Atomizing Nozzle for your application. In a summary, here are the basic questions that need to be answered:
1.) Are you using a pressurized liquid feed?
2.) What is the viscosity of the fluid?
3.) What is the liquid feed rate in gallons per hour (gph) or liters per hour (lph).
4.) Should I use the No-Drip option?
EXAIR’s flow chart with easy-to-follow steps will walk you through the decision tree and land you at the best Atomizing Spray Nozzle for your application. In answering these simple questions, this chart will guide you to the correct page in our current catalog to get additional information and specifications. Click on Link below to determine the best nozzle for you.
When it comes to spraying a fine mist, EXAIR has a great range of Atomizing Nozzles. If you follow the flow chart, you will get the best product to spray your liquid and reduce waste. If you have any problems or questions, you can contact one of our Application Engineers at EXAIR.
Did you know that the air and liquid caps of EXAIR Atomizing Nozzles are interchangeable? Maybe you do. But, do you know which parts are interchangeable? And, did you know that EXAIR Application Engineers have a quick reference chart for such information?
When it comes to liquid spraying, our customers will write to me for application assistance, technical specifications, and potential uses for Atomizing Nozzles. Sometimes the need is for new methods to apply liquid in an existing application.
This was the case in the photo above. The end user needed to apply a thin line of paint on a rubber extrusion. After the rubber is dried, it needs to be marked for easy identification during later handling. Using an AN1010SS, the end user has the option to apply atomized paint, and to automate the process so that paint is applied only as needed.
Atomizing Nozzles are also suitable for dust suppression (for example, at a waste transfer system), humidification (such as soften wood for processing), improving costly liquid usage, or spraying oil lubricant.
The best way to categorize an application for use with an Atomizing Nozzle is through a series of (5) questions.
What is the desired spray pattern?
What is the area size to be covered?
How much liquid flow is required?
Is there a pressurized liquid source?
What is the viscosity of the fluid to be atomized?
Based on the answer to these questions the proper Atomizing Nozzle can be selected. If you need clarification on how these questions correlate to model number selection, a full staff of engineers are available for chat through EXAIR.com or over the phone/by email.
