Atomizing Nozzle Materials
Type 303 Stainless Steel - All of EXAIR's Atomizing Nozzles are constructed with Type 303 stainless steel, which can resist high temperatures and corrosive environments. They are designed for environments with a maximum operating temperature of 800°F (426°C).
Mounting Brackets - available for 1/8 FNPT, 1/4 FNPT and 1/2 FNPT models. Provides a secure mount for EXAIR's Atomizing Nozzles. Constructed of Type 301 stainless steel.
Atomizing Nozzle Standards and Certifications
EXAIR Atomizing Nozzles comply with the EU General Product Safety Directive (2001/95/EC) and meet the noise limitation requirements of the EU Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC). All sound level measurements are taken at 3 feet away.

Awards - Internal Mix Atomizing Nozzle
EXAIR's Internal Mix Atomizing Nozzles were a winner of the 2011 New Equipment Digest King Awards. The Internal Mix Atomizing Nozzle family won in the Fluid/Pneumatic Power category.
EXAIR's Internal Mix Atomizing Nozzles were a finalist in the 2011 Plant Engineering Product of the Year Awards. The Internal Mix Atomizing Nozzle family placed in the Fluid Handling category.
One of the primary reasons atomizing spray nozzles are used is because of their fine droplet size. Benefits of fine droplet size include even coating and liquid conservation. For reference, a large raindrop is around 6,000 microns (0.236") in diameter. Standard liquid nozzles produce droplet sizes ranging from 4,000 microns (0.157") down to 300 microns (0.012") in diameter. EXAIR's Atomizing Nozzles produce minuscule droplet sizes in the range of 100 microns (0.004") to 20 microns (0.0008")!

The Spray Angle is the trigonometric angle created by the width of the spray pattern and the distance at which it is measured. This angle can vary greatly within a given family of atomizing nozzles depending on flow rates and pressures, but will generally fall into the ranges below:
|Model Family||Minimum Angle||Maximum Angle|
|Internal Mix Narrow Angle Round Pattern- AN1010SS, AN2010SS, etc.||20°||45°|
|Internal Mix Wide Angle Round Pattern- AW1010SS, AW2010SS, etc.||50°||90°|
|Internal Mix Flat Fan Pattern- AF1010SS, AF2010SS, etc.||50°||120°|
|External Mix Round Pattern - ER1010SS, ER2010SS, etc.||25°||60°|
|External Mix Narrow Angle Flat Fan Pattern - EF1010SS, EF2010SS, etc.||35°||70°|
|External Mix Wide Angle Flat Fan Pattern - EB1010SS, EB2010SS, etc.||50°||105°|
|Siphon Fed Round Pattern SR1010SS, SR2010SS, etc.||20°||50°|
|Siphon Fed Flat Fan Pattern SF1010SS, SF2010SS, etc.||50°||100°|
