What Are Atomizing Nozzles?
EXAIR’s atomizing spray nozzles atomize fluids (most commonly water) in a range of spray patterns for a variety of uses. They combine liquid and compressed air to create a mist of atomized liquid that can be easily adjusted to meet the needs of your application. All models use stainless steel construction for durability and corrosion resistance. Atomizing spray nozzles are available in 1/4 NPT and 1/2 NPT sizes.
EXAIR's atomizing nozzles are available in 3 basic families:
Internal mix nozzles mix the liquid and air inside the air cap and produce the finest atomization. Internal mix nozzles can be used on liquids with a viscosity up to 300 cP. Both air and liquid sides are pressure fed. >More
External mix nozzles have the highest flow rates and allow the air and liquid flows to be adjusted independently. These nozzles are best where precise liquid flow is needed. External mix nozzles can be used on liquids with a viscosity above 300 cP. Both air and liquid sides are pressure fed. >More
Siphon fed nozzles require no liquid pressure and can be used with gravity fed liquids or lift liquids from a siphon height as much as 36 inches (91cm). Siphon fed nozzles can be used on liquids with a viscosity up to 200 cP. >More
Why Atomizing Nozzles?
With EXAIR’s atomizing nozzles, you can coat, cool, treat and paint a variety of products. Used with water, atomizing nozzles are an efficient way to evenly cool hot items in your automated process. These nozzles are also an excellent choice for dust mitigation. The maximum operating temperature for the atomizing nozzles is 400°F (204°C).
Sound levels for the individual Atomizing Spray Nozzles are not provided. The fluid, pressure, surfaces being treated and surrounding enclosures used in conjunction with the Atomizing Nozzle to form the system will determine the actual sound levels (which can vary greatly).
No Drip Atomizing Nozzles
EXAIR's no drip atomizing spray nozzles work in the same way our standard atomizing nozzles do, but have the added benefit of positively stopping liquid flow when compressed air is shut off.
Why No Drip Atomizing Nozzles?
When spraying any type of liquid, post spray liquid flow can cause big problems. Unwanted drips can ruin product finishes on painted or coated surfaces. EXAIR's no drip atomizing nozzles are ideal where no post-spray drip is permissible.
