EXAIR offers an ever-expanding selection of Atomizing Spray Nozzles. One style with many iterations within the line is the Internal Mix. Internal mix refers to the physical action of the compressed air atomizing the liquid before they leave the air cap. Because this action takes place inside the nozzle, internal mix atomizing spray nozzles are recommended for lower viscosity fluids. Water, water soluble/diluted lubricants, lightweight way oil, or rust inhibitors are a few examples that can easily be sprayed through these nozzles. The nozzles are also able to spray in five different spray patterns.
The Internal Mix Atomizing Spray nozzles are available in Narrow Angle Round Pattern, Wide Angle Round Pattern, Flat Fan Pattern, Deflected Flat Fan Pattern and 360° Hollow Cone Pattern. These nozzles can cover anywhere from 1.5″ diameter up to 13′ diameter and almost any dimension in between. To cover this vast array of spray dimensions they are offered in three inlet port sizes, 1/8″, 1/4″ and 1/2″ NPT.
Each NPT size offers a variable spray pattern as well as liquid flow rates for each type of spray pattern. The 1/8″ nozzles are available up to 28 GPH of flow rate. The 1/4″ nozzles are able to flow up to 42 GPH. The 1/2″ models are able to flow up to 264 GPH. These flowrates can all be varied to minimal flows by adjusting the liquid needle valve. See the video below for a demonstration of that variability.
These nozzles are all easily installed and can be mounted with the available mounting brackets. One for each size.

EXAIR’sAtomizing Spray Nozzles are used to clean, coat, or cool parts and they also lend themselves very well to humidification and dust control. They are constructed from rugged and durable 303 SS to provide corrosion resistance and they can operate in temperatures up to 400°F (204°C). All EXAIR Atomizing Spray Nozzles are also CE compliant.
Centipoise is defined as a dynamic viscosity measurement unit. A Centipoise (cP) is a non-SI (non-System International) measurement unit of dynamic viscosity in the centimeter gram second (CGS) system of units.
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:
