Press Release Summary:
Available in nickel plated brass and 303 or 316 stainless steel for 1/8 and Â¼ in. pipe sizes, Model XA ER provides full cone round spray pattern for liquids with viscosity of 100+ cp. Unit operates with external mix and is liquid pressure fed, so flow rate is not dependent on air pressure. In addition to ozonating water, nozzle is suited for gas cooling and injecting viscous liquids into gas streams containing powder particles.

Air Atomising Nozzle Suits High Viscosity Fluids
A new air atomising nozzle which enables effective spraying of viscous fluids at very fine atomisation but at low flow rates, is the latest addition to the BETE range of nozzles. The XA ER nozzle, which provides a full cone round spray pattern for liquids with a high viscosity (100+ cP), complements the existing XA EF nozzle which produces a flat fan spray pattern.
The XA ER nozzle operates with an external mix which means the exit orifice can be larger allowing for viscous fluids to be sprayed. The XAER is also a liquid pressure fed nozzle (as opposed to siphon fed), so the flow rate is not dependent on the air pressure which results in easier control. It is available for 1/8" and ¼" pipe sizes and can be specified in a choice of standard materials including nickel plated brass, 303 or 316 stainless steel.
Typical applications will include ozonating water, for example, where the water is at 5 psi and the ozone at 60 psi. This would not be possible with a traditional internal mix nozzle due to its inability to cope with such a large difference between the liquid and the gas pressure. Also, gas cooling and injecting viscous liquids into gas streams containing powder particles in order for the droplets to coat the powder is possible with the XA ER nozzle.
