Welcome to NozzlePro. Nozzle Categories


Category: Spray Pattern

  • Term: Fan spray:** A flat, wide spray pattern resembling a sheet of water.
  • Definition: Produces a broad, even distribution of liquid ideal for covering large areas quickly.
  • Example: Fan spray nozzles are commonly used for watering lawns, cleaning surfaces, and applying herbicides.
  • Category: Full cone spray:** A conical spray pattern with a hollow center.
  • Definition: Offers good coverage with less potential for overspray compared to solid stream nozzles.
  • Example: Full cone spray nozzles are used in applications like industrial cleaning, dust suppression, and applying pesticides.

Category: Flow Characteristics

  • Term: Flow rate:** The amount of liquid passing through a nozzle per unit time, usually measured in gallons per minute (GPM) or liters per minute (LPM).
  • Definition: Determines the pressure needed and the coverage area achieved with the nozzle.
  • Example: High flow rate nozzles are used for tasks like washing cars or filling tanks, while low flow rate nozzles are suitable for delicate applications like misting plants.
  • Term: Pressure drop:** The decrease in pressure experienced by the liquid as it flows through the nozzle.
  • Definition: Affects the spray pattern and overall performance of the nozzle.
  • Example: Understanding pressure drop is crucial for selecting the right nozzle for your application's pressure limitations.

Category: Materials

  • Term: Brass:** A durable and corrosion-resistant material commonly used for nozzles in low-pressure applications.
  • Definition: Offers good value and withstands moderate wear and tear.
  • Example: Brass nozzles are popular for cleaning, irrigation, and general spraying tasks.
  • Term: Stainless steel:** A stronger and more corrosion-resistant material than brass, suitable for high-pressure and demanding applications.
  • Definition: Offers the best durability and longevity for harsh environments.
  • Example: Stainless steel nozzles are preferred for industrial cleaning, chemical applications, and high-pressure washing.

Category: Spray Pattern:

    • Air atomizing: Uses compressed air to break up liquid into a fine mist, ideal for delicate applications like painting and cooling.
    • Hollow cone: Similar to full cone but with a narrower inner cone, offering focused coverage with minimal drift.
    • Jetting: Produces a powerful, concentrated stream of liquid, often used for high-pressure cleaning and cutting.
    • Penetrating: Designed to create a focused stream that pierces through dense materials like foliage or debris.
    • Shower: Creates a gentle, rain-like spray pattern, suitable for watering delicate plants or applying herbicides.

Category: Flow Characteristics:

    • Angle of repose: The angle at which the spray pattern falls back to the ground, impacting coverage and penetration.
    • Flow coefficient (Cv): A dimensionless number indicating the flow rate through a nozzle for a given pressure drop.
    • Impact angle: The angle at which the liquid hits the target surface, affecting cleaning effectiveness and potential damage.
    • Shear rate: The rate at which different layers of liquid move relative to each other within the nozzle, influencing droplet size and uniformity.
    • Turn down ratio: The maximum flow rate reduction achievable by adjusting the nozzle, offering control over spray intensity.

Category: Materials:

    • Acetal: Lightweight and chemically resistant plastic for low-pressure and non-corrosive applications.
    • Polypropylene (PP): Affordable and resistant to many chemicals, suitable for moderate-pressure applications.
    • Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE): Exceptionally resistant to abrasion and chemicals, ideal for demanding environments.
    • Tungsten carbide: Extremely hard and wear-resistant material for nozzles handling abrasive or high-impact applications.
    • Viton: A type of synthetic rubber offering excellent resistance to heat, chemicals, and oils, suited for harsh conditions.

Category: Nozzle Parts:

    • Cap: Covers the nozzle orifice for storage and prevents accidental spraying.
    • Orifice: The opening through which the liquid flows, determining flow rate and spray pattern.
    • Shroud: A surrounding structure that shapes the spray pattern and influences coverage.
    • Stem: The part that connects the nozzle to the spray system, allowing for installation and adjustment.
    • Vanes: Internal components that control the direction and distribution of the spray pattern.

Category: Applications:

    • Abrasive blasting: Using pressurized air and abrasive media delivered through a specialized nozzle for cleaning or surface preparation.
    • Atomization: Breaking down liquids into fine droplets for applications like humidification, combustion, and spraying paints.
    • Cooling: Directing a controlled spray of liquid to cool objects or machinery, preventing overheating.
    • Dust suppression: Applying water mist to control airborne dust particles in construction, mining, and other environments.
  • Lubrication: Delivering lubricants precisely to specific points on machinery or equipment.
