Exair's Large Internal Mix Atomizing Nozzle Conserves Liquids
Nozzle stops liquid flow when compressed air is shut off.
Exair’s 1/2 NPT no-drip internal mix atomizing spray nozzles mix liquid and air inside the nozzle to produce atomization of liquids up to 300 cP with the added benefit of positively stopping liquid flow when compressed air is shut off. The company says the nozzle requires no additional air line to control the no-drip feature.
The nozzle is available in four patterns — narrow angle round, wide angle round, flat fan and 360-degree hollow circular pattern. The nozzles are designed for pressure-fed applications that don't require independent air and liquid control. It is said the nozzles are fully adjustable to minimize air and liquid consumption, and have interchangeable liquid and air caps. Flow ranges from 0.14 Gph to 303 Gph (0.5 Lph to 1147 Lph).
