Spray technologies may be used in many common application areas, such as coating, lubrication, welding, and cleaning/washing processes. Coating applications may involve applying protection sealant to metal surfaces to prevent corrosion and pitting, strengthen surfaces, and apply paint colors.
Components that are machined, welded, or have coatings applied to the surface require cleaning and rinsing to remove debris, dirt, and metal particles from the surface. Spray nozzles are used to remove all particles and dirt from every crevice.
Lubrication applications in the automotive industry involve placing lubes on metal blanks and feed stocks. Lubrication may also be placed into cores during casting processes to better remove casted products. The lubrication would go into the mold's cavities before the molten metal is poured inside. Once the metal is cooled, the mold can be fully removed without sticking to the casting and damaging the product.
When soldering, spray nozzles may apply flux to radiator cores. The powdered flux has water added and then nozzles spray the liquid flux onto the radiator. The radiator is then placed into a brazing furnace to join metal components. The nozzles may apply protective coatings, sealants, and paints to automotive surfaces.
