Functional videos Hollow cone nozzles

What's the difference between the axial-flow and the eccentric-flow hollow cone nozzle?

The liquid supply is axial, rotary motion of the liquid is generated by so-called swirl inserts or vanes. Axial-flow hollow cone nozzles allow to produce the finest droplets achievable with pressure-operated nozzle designs. This is also called hydraulic atomization.

Tangential-flow hollow cone nozzles provide a very uniform hollow cone spray thanks to a particular flow geometry. Liquid is put into rotation by an eccentricity arranged liquid inlet. Thereby a very uniform liquid distribution is achieved with spray angles up to 130°.

Which (spray) character should you go with?

Of course, we will be pleased to advise you on the subject of spray character if required.
