Lances and Nozzle Headers

Using Lances and Headers for your Spray Application




Lances and spray headers are enhanced spray products which consist of a pipe with one or more nozzles attached to it.

A lance is a pipe which contains a nozzle at the end of it.  The lance is then inserted into the target area, be it a tank for cleaning or a larger pipe for injecting fluid into a gas or fluid system.

Lances are either static, meaning they stay in the target area permanently or until manually removed, or retractable, meaning the nozzle at the end of the lance can retract into the vessel or pipe so as not to be part of any further processing until the next cycle.

A spray header, also referred to as a spray bar, contains multiple nozzles which are overlapped and offset as appropriate to create an even spray distribution across the entire spray width.  A header is used when a single nozzle is not enough to cover the desired area.  Most typically headers contain flat fan nozzles and are used to spray onto conveyor belts or other moving targets.  But they can also have stationary targets and contain full cone nozzles as well.  And while most spray headers are straight pieces of pipe, some headers are curved, circular, or inverted U-shape.

Whether your spray requirement is for a lance or a spray header, Lechler can fabricate either for you which completely meets your requirements.  Just contact us, tell us what you need, and we will design and build an end product to your specifications.
