Thoroughgoing Experience in a Wide Range of Fields

By accumulating onsite production experience in a wide array of different fields and industries,
we have developed innovative new technological applications, products and more.

Used by a wide range of industries

Our spray nozzles are used at production sites in a range of different industries. As a result, our Nozzle Division has developed expertise in an extremely diverse array of industrial fields in order to meet customers' varying needs.

The successes and experience we have achieved in these fields help us improve our customers’ production efficiency and product quality, contribute toward greater energy efficiency and offer other such advantages in differing fields, while the new nozzles we develop enable us to break into and pioneer new markets.

Even though customer and market needs change as technologies advance with the times, IKEUCHI's Nozzle Division always stands at the forefront of these changes, constantly challenging ourselves to evolve together with the advances of industry and pursue new possibilities in spray nozzles.

Our Business Fields

Steelmaking

Our involvement in the steelmaking industry goes back many years: we developed pneumatic spray nozzles for steelmaking applications in 1983, where they were used for cooling purposes in continuous casting operations and also put to use in other applications. Our spray nozzles are also used in processes including descaling, washing, surface treatment, and dust suppression.

  • Cooling
  • Descaling
  • Cleaning
  • Surface treatment
  • Dust suppression
  • Gas cooling

Automotive manufacturing

Our spray nozzles are used in a wide variety of manufacturing processes relating to engine powertrains, automobile bodies, painting and coating, bumpers, outfitting, and car electronics, amongst others.

  • Cooling
  • Humidification
  • Cleaning
  • Drying

Pollution Control

Our spray nozzles are used for flue gas cooling in incineration plants as a dioxin countermeasure. sophisticated. Our nozzles are also used as desulphurization and denitrification devices to reduce NOx and SOX in flue gas.

  • Gas cooling
  • Cooling
  • Dust suppression
  • Heat reduction
  • Odor reduction

Electronics

Spray nozzles have found a great number of uses in the electronics industry, which is becoming increasingly complex and sophisticated. Our products play an important role in semiconductor wafer washing, PCB precision washing, and humidity control for clean rooms as a static charge countermeasure.

  • Cleaning
  • Developing
  • Etching
  • Stripping

Paper & Pulp, Printing

In fields such as papermaking and printing, spray nozzles are used in almost all processes. Our spray nozzles are used for canvas washing, edge-trimming, controlling moisture content of paper and cardboard, air for sheet separation and transport. Our nozzles are also used to remove particles from post-washing waste water, and support environmental protection.

  • Humidification
  • Moisture control,
  • Trimming
  • Cleaning

Food Products

The introduction of spray nozzles in food product operations has helped achieved greater automation, higher precision and cost-reductions compared with old approaches which relied on manual operations. spray nozzles play an important part in the creation of delicious and safe food and beverage products, whether they be bread, rice balls, frozen foods, snack foods, beer, or anything else.

  • Cleaning
  • Flavoring
  • Oil coating
  • Moisture control
  • Disinfection

Agriculture, Livestock

Spray nozzles have long been used in primary industries such as agriculture and livestock, and here at IKEUCHI we got our start in this area by making nozzles for pesticide spraying applications. Expanding from pesticide spray drift prevention, cattle-barn cooling, sterilization, washing of fish and other sea creatures at marine product processing centers, and other such primary-industry applications, we are now involved in other new applications such as landscaping and exterior/interior design for direct-sales facilities.

  • Cleaning
  • Outdoor cooling
  • Spraying
  • Disinfection

Environment, Entertainment

In addition to environmental pollution prevention measures, our spray-nozzle-based measures in the environmental field include urban heat island (UHI) countermeasures, treatment of industrial wastewater before it enters rivers, and other such efforts. Furthermore, the multimedia-presentation effects we provide using fog, sound, light and other such elements during shows and visual displays at locations including commercial facilities, parks, amusement parks and event venues have been met with widespread praise in recent years.

  • Outdoor cooling
  • Fog and light displays
  • Waste water filtration
  • Odor reduction

Medicine, Welfare

Solutions produced by IKEUCHI include humidification of hospitals and care facilities, indoor disinfection, medical product packing, and many more. Our nozzles are furthermore used in mist saunas and toilet cleaning.

  • Cooling
  • Humidification
  • Cleaning
  • Disinfection

Energy

In order to achieve required safety levels at the power plants that provide us with electric power, IKEUCHI spray nozzles are used for fire-prevention purposes at many such facilities. Moreover, because power provision stability poses a major challenge for power plant operators, we are pursuing novel measures such as the use of spray nozzles to cool the intake-air in power-generating facilities with the aim of bolstering output during the summer, a season that hinders efficiency with its high temperatures.

  • Cooling
  • Dust suppression
  • Cleaning
  • Fire prevention

Construction

In the construction industry, we use spray nozzles in construction sites to keep down dust, prevent heatstroke among workers and rectify other such problems. The factories that produce the materials used in such construction projects also face similar problems, which is why these customers utilize spray nozzles in conjunction with other equipment (dust collectors, localized coolers, etc.) as effective countermeasures.
