Spray nozzles & systems

Are there external factors affecting the nozzle spray?

Sometimes the spray is affected by external forces such as process gas flows, air flows or wind.

A nozzle creating a spray with very small droplets will be particularly sensitive to the impact of an air or gas stream, which should be taken into account when selecting a nozzle.

Another example is when a gas stream flows in the opposite direction to the spray. Depending on the velocity of the gas and the droplet size distribution of the spray, the spray can change direction and go downstream as a result, see picture.

Please contact us if you need spray trajectories for a specific process.
