Nozzle Maintenance Guidelines


EXTEND NOZZLE SERVICE LIFE

  • Use strainers. Line strainers or nozzles with built-in strainers are recommended. The screen mesh will trap larger particles and prevent debris from entering the nozzle orifice or vane
  • Consider nozzle material. Materials with harder surfaces generally provide longer wear life. Make sure to choose the right material for your application
  • Decrease spraying pressure. Higher pressures can speed up nozzle wear. If possible, decrease the liquid velocity through the orifice. This may help reduce wear and corrosion
