In more complex spray operations, such as gas cooling, coating with viscous liquids and tablet coating, finding the spray nozzle and system that delivers the exact performance requires some research. In these operations, it's not possible to reproduce the process conditions in which the nozzles will be used. That's why we have a group dedicated to Spray Analysis and Research. This group conducts tests in our spray laboratories – the largest in the world – and uses sophisticated modeling tools to determine spray performance using a customer's exact operating conditions. The result of this research and testing validates nozzle selection while looking at other factors as well: nozzle placement on the lance, injector and header, where the feed device is placed in the operating environment, the effects of change in operating conditions and thermal stresses on spray performance and more.
Our Spray Analysis Group also researches new ways to spray. Customers often want to use spray technology instead of an existing technology to solve an application problem. Our research engineers develop prototypes and conduct proof-of concept testing to validate the approach and production feasibility. The results range from designing new spray nozzles and new spray manifolds to using existing products and spraying materials customers believed were "unsprayable". Benefits often include:
If you have a challenging spray application or want to explore new application methods, we're the company to contact. We have more experience, expertise and global resources – laboratories and dedicated spray specialists – than any other supplier.
