Unlike flat fan nozzles which disperse the incoming fluid into a fan pattern through an elliptical orifice or full cone nozzles which have internal vanes which break up the incoming stream to create a cone pattern, a solid stream nozzle has no internal parts which affect the inlet flow. Rather it simply channels the incoming fluid to project through a round orifice to create a powerful single stream of fluid.
Thanks to optimum flow geometries, Lechler solid stream nozzles produce compact, transparent solid stream jets of defined lengths. The almost turbulence-free liquid inflow achieves excellent efficiency, even without jet stabilizer inserts.
Solid stream nozzles provide the greatest impact per square inch of any other type of nozzle, all other factors being equal (such as flow rate, pressure, and spray distance). A solid stream nozzle is considered a 0° flat fan nozzle, and a flat fan nozzle’s impact per square inch increases as the spray angle decreases. That is why a 0° nozzle (i.e., a solid stream nozzle) provides the greatest impact.
So for all cleaning processes, cutting operations, and applications requiring perfect columnar impacts in order to generate concentrated jet power, the precision and power of Lechler solid stream nozzles enhance the productivity and performance of your plant.
For applications requiring high pressure, Lechler has a comprehensive range of solid stream nozzles in stainless steel with special hardening or with Tungsten Carbide inserts for longer life under such conditions. Lechler high pressure solid stream nozzles create tight, stable, and powerful solid jets which do not break apart even at increased spray distances.
