INDUSTRIAL SPRAY NOZZLES AND THEIR APPLICATIONS

Abstract

Industrial spray nozzles cover a wide range of applications and therefore have to fullfill different requirements with regard to design, droplet size and velocity, liquid distribution, spray impact and other parameters. Typical fields of application are: Mining, steel procession, air conditioning, agriculture, fire protection, power-producing industry, environmental technology, surface treatment, chemical industry, mechanical engineering, electroplating, laboratory technology.
A fundamental subdivision of atomizers can be made into single fluid, twin fluid, ultrasonic and rotary atomizers. But also the spray pattern allows to classify atomizers into flat jet, hollow cone, full cone nozzles and others. Droplet size and velocity as well as the liquid distribution or the impact of the spray are important parameters for applications, but robustness and energy consumption also are practical requirements.
