Special Pneumatic Nozzles
Pneumatic nozzles 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.
We separate our pneumatic nozzles into three categories representing the way air is supplied to the nozzle before being mixed with a liquid: compressed air driven nozzles, air blower driven nozzles and special pneumatic nozzles (like steam driven).
Our special pneumatic nozzles are not easily classified in a category. We designed every single one of these creative nozzles for specific applications. They are hybrid (dual usage hydraulic and pneumatic) and steam-driven nozzles that could not find the proper definition among all the standard versions of our nozzles. Definitely worth checking out if your applications are unusual and you have trouble finding the perfect nozzles to reach the maximum efficiency.
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.
