Spray Nozzle has porous polypropylene filter.

Press Release Summary:

Series PJ incorporates replaceable, porous, plastic filter that removes particles as small as 70 microns, preventing small impingement nozzle from clogging with particulate matter such as dirt, burrs, and bits of sealing tape. Filter increases surface area so contaminants are removed upstream of nozzle. Nozzle works at temperatures up to 155°F, is resistant to chemicals, and offers minimal pressure drop resulting from filter insertion.

PJ Nozzle with Porous Polypropylene Filters

Greenfield, MA USA - BETE Fog Nozzle, Inc., the industry leader in design and fabrication of spray nozzles, has developed an innovative solution that prevents small impingement nozzles from clogging with particulate matter.

A new porous polypropylene filter for the BETE PJ Series nozzle is designed to remove particles as small as 70 microns. This is a substantial improvement over stainless steel mesh filters.

Contaminants such as dirt, burrs and bits of sealing tape can clog nozzles quickly, resulting in frequent cleaning and costly down time. The replaceable polypropylene filter greatly increases surface area so more contaminants are removed upstream of the nozzle. As a result, the frequency with which the nozzles need cleaning is reduced.

The filtered PJ Series nozzle works at temperatures up to 155° F, is resistant to a broad range of chemicals, and offers minimal pressure drop.

According to Mike Mikaelian, Applications Engineer for BETE Fog Nozzle, "The addition of the porous plastic filter to the PJ product line allows us to offer our customers a product that requires less maintenance and therefore offers greater reliability at a lower maintenance cost. It is a welcome addition."

For more than 50 years, BETE Fog Nozzle, Inc., has been the recognized leader in design and fabrication of industrial spray nozzles for fire protection, pollution control and industry. BETE's expert advice is sought on over 2,000 unique applications annually. BETE has developed innovative designs for applications in cooling, dust control, lubrication, washing gases, food service, cleaning, humidifying and cooling.
