New Air Atomizing Nozzle Suits High Viscosity Fluids
Bete Fog Nozzle introduces the Bete Xaer, a nozzle that enables the spraying of viscous fluids at very fine atomization and low flow rates. The Bete Xaer provides a full cone round spray pattern that is suitable for liquids with a high viscosity (100+ cP). The round pattern Xaer complements the existing Xaef nozzle, which produces a flat fan spray pattern.
The nozzle operates with an external mix, which means the atomization of the fluid takes place outside the nozzle. As the Xaer is an external mix, (as opposed to an internal mix), the flow rate is not dependent on the air pressure, which can provide for easier control.
It is available for one-eight-inch and one-quarter-inch pipe sizes and can be specified in a choice of standard materials including nickel-plated brass, 303 or 316 stainless steel. The Xaer can also be constructed from other materials to accommodate demanding conditions.
Typical applications include spray drying, where the fluid pressure is typically lower and the fluid viscosities are typically higher. Other applications for the nozzle include gas cooling and coating foodstuffs. The nozzle can inject a viscous liquid into a gas stream that contains powder particles in order to coat the powder with the liquid.
