Sustainability Tip: Precision Spray Control

Weekly sustainability tip


Oct 19

Our AutoJet® systems are designed to accurately and efficiently control your spray applications. Combined with our automatic PulsaJet® nozzles this combination ensures the proper volume of liquid is sprayed exactly when and where it‘s needed and nowhere else – we call this “Precision Spray Control” or PSC.

With PSC, the AutoJet® controller turns the PulsaJet® nozzles on and off very quickly. This can control the flow rate up to 25,000 times per minute. This cycling is so fast that the flow often appears to be constant. With traditional nozzles, flow rate adjustments require a change in liquid pressure, which also changes the nozzle’s spray angle, coverage and drop size. With PSC, the pressure remains constant to enable flow rate changes without changes in spray performance.

By taking advantage of PSC you can save enormous amounts of resources, limiting your impact on the environment. Compared to a more traditional spray setup customers can easily halve their liquid use. There is also an increase in product quality thanks to a uniform and consistent application, even when line speed changes. Using PSC ensures the transfer efficiency between our spray nozzle and your target is maximised. This also has a positive effect on collateral issues in a spray application. (misting, slipping, clean down and excess waste for example).

To summarize Precision Spray Control helps you achieve huge savings and improves your production process. If you are looking to reach your sustainability goals PSC is probably the easiest and quickest ways to do it – many have gone before you.
