Bex says its eductors take advantage of the surrounding liquid to create a high-velocity flow yield at the diffuser, circulating as much as five times the pump output with a discharge plume broader than the jet from a solid stream nozzle of equivalent energy.

At FABTECH 2018, Bex will display eductors for tank mixing, and spray nozzles for cleaning parts and equipment.

The company’s eductors feature a venturi design that enables smaller pumps to circulate large volumes of solution. According to Bex, they take advantage of the surrounding liquid to create a high-velocity flow yield at the diffuser, circulating as much as five times the pump output with a discharge plume broader than the jet from a solid stream nozzle of equivalent energy. Eductors with ¼" to 3" ports discharge as much as 1,410 gpm at 50 psi. In addition, they mix and agitate without introducing air, steam or contaminants into the solution. 

Bex’s modular K-Ball clip-on spray nozzle series includes hundreds of combinations of nozzle options that deliver the appropriate spray pattern for parts cleaning, pretreatment, spray washing and rinsing applications. The threaded body adjusts spray direction with a twist of the cap. When used with Zip-Tips, the nozzle orientation locks down, even while exchanging nozzle tips. The heavy service clip is good to 100 psi (200 psi with two clips) at 175°F.
