Exair Corp. has released a spray nozzle that can coat, cool, treat and paint in tight spaces. Exair's 1/4 NPT internal mix deflected flat fan atomizing spray nozzle both atomizes fluid and sprays at a right angle to the nozzle orientation, according to Exair.
This allows spray to be placed precisely where it is needed when the mounting and work areas are limited, Exair said. Additionally, these nozzles are ideal for coating the inside of enclosures and ductwork, the company claimed.
The nozzles combine liquid and compressed air inside the air cap to produce a fine mist of atomized liquid that can be adjusted to meet application needs, Exair said. These spray nozzles provide liquid flows from 1.8 to 6.9 gallons per hour.
With Exair's atomizing nozzles, a variety of products can be coated, cooled, treated and painted using compressed air and liquids with a viscosity of up to 300 centipoise. Exair said they are used commonly with water, light oils, rust inhibitors, chemicals, paints and dyes.
The atomizing nozzles have stainless steel construction, which adds to durability and corrosion resistance capabilities, the company claimed. Exair atomizing nozzles are available with 1/4 NPT and 1/2 NPT connections and in a variety of sizes and shapes. All models are adjustable, the firm said, and come with a five-year warranty and are CE compliant. Internal mix deflected flat fan spray nozzles start at $187.
