Compressed Air Pneumatic Nozzles
Compressed air nozzles are pneumatic nozzles, which means they are two-fluids nozzles. They use a high-velocity flow of compressed air that gives them different features compared to hydraulic nozzles. Most of the time, the air is used to break down the water in tiny particles, even smaller ones than what hydraulic nozzles produce. Indeed, they can spray very small droplets down to 7 μm, and they fit in situations where :
- fine atomization is required;
- A viscous liquid is sprayed;
- a large turn-down ratio is required;
- extremely small spray capacity is required.
Our pneumatic nozzles are separated into three categories representing the way air is supplied to the nozzle before being mixed with a liquid: compressed air driven nozzles, blower-air driven nozzles and special pneumatic nozzles (like steam driven).
Compressed air is a form of energy storage due to its ability to perform work when decompressed. The production of compressed air is carried out, for the most part, with electric power through a compressor.
Besides, another great advantage of the use of IKEUCHI’s nozzles is that they have a lower consumption of compressed air flow compared to free exhaust pipes, thus reducing the installation’s operating costs.
At IKEUCHI, we have determined the fundamentals to select the right nozzle for your application based on their characteristics. When selecting the nozzle, we advise you based on your required spray angle, spray capacity, optimum spray pattern, and spray distribution.
