Our revolutionary nozzle design can spray a wide range of highly viscous materials while reducing the consumption of material and energy.
Traditional Air-Assist Atomization
Traditional nozzles often create inconsistently sized droplets. They also require large amounts of high pressure gas to create small droplets. In addition, these nozzles perform poorly with high viscosity fluids.
Countercurrent shear was first systematically examined in the laboratory in the late 1980s. We used this research to develop a unique design in which the fluids travel in opposite directions. This creates the most efficient spray output.
Our nozzle configuration shown above illustrates how this concept efficiently atomizes viscous liquids. The liquid stream is introduced through a central tube while gas is added in a secondary passageway. The liquid-gas counterflow creates the ideal mixture for spraying upon leaving the nozzle.
