III 22



Cleaning is an essential application in any industry. Since March is spring cleaning month we felt that this would be a good opportunity to help our customers select the right spray tools for their industrial cleaning needs.

Whether it’s pressure washing, washing parts or products, cleaning conveyors, tanks, vehicles, metals or other materials… At Spraying Systems Co. we have helped organizations in countless industries to meet their targets and improve the efficiency of their cleaning process.

We have thousands of nozzles, spray guns and spray manifolds to perform any task effectively and efficiently: No matter how complicated or unique, if there’s a spray involved we can help you.

Conventional cleaning, washing and rinsing operations.

Conventional hydraulic spray nozzles are widely used in many cleaning, washing and rinsing operations. For low-, medium- and high-pressure operations, we have hundreds of options. Our flat spray, full cone and hollow cone nozzles are available in a wide range of spray angles, inlet connections, capacities and materials. High-pressure and clog-resistant versions are available in many styles as well. To help you select the right nozzles for the job we have made this convenient overview below. If you have any questions feel free to contact your local spray experts, they’ll be happy to help you.

High maintenance cleaning, washing and rinsing operations.

If your cleaning operations require frequent maintenance it may be a good idea to look into quick-connect spray nozzles. These nozzles require no tools for installation and replacement of spray tips.

Many of our standard hydraulic nozzles are available in quick-connect versions. Our QuickJet® line includes a wide range of flat spray, full cone and hollow cone nozzles in brass, stainless steel and hardened stainless steel. As always they are available in a wide range of spray angles, inlet connections, capacities and materials

Each nozzle has a separate body and tip to allow easy replacement of essential parts without the need of long shutdown time or calibration.

The QuickJet® range also includes a ProMax® version. This is a chemically-coupled, glass-reinforced engineering grade of polypropylene. This unique material is ideal for applications using phosphates, acids, solvents and other caustic solutions. ProMax® also resists caking and build-up to minimize plugging.

We have dozens of tip options from which to choose. Suitable for use in low-pressure washing and rinsing operations, you can mix and match bodies and tips from our extensive line to get the exact performance you need. View the table below for a more in depth view of our Quick-connect spray nozzles for cleaning applications.
