Small Capacity Fine Fog Nozzles/ Flat Spray BIMV series nozzles

Thread standard - Pipe conn. size - Standard pressure -
Spray angle 45°, 80°, or 110° (*1) Spray capacity 1.0–107 ℓ/hr Supply air type Compressed air
Liquid feeding system Liquid pressure Mean droplet diameter 20–100 μm Air consumption 7–245 ℓ/min, Normal

• Flat spray pneumatic nozzle producing fine atomization with a mean droplet diameter of 100 μm or less (*3).
• Features large turn-down ratio under liquid pressures of 0.1–0.3 MPa.
• Produces two different spray distributions: uniform spray distribution throughout spray pattern area (when spraying at a low air-water ratio), or a mountain-shaped distribution having gradually tapered edges (at a high air-water ratio).
• Spray angle of 110゚, 80゚, or 45゚.

*1) Spray angle measured at compressed air pressure of 0.3 MPa and liquid pressure of 0.1 MPa.
*2) Free passage diameter of spray orifice.
*3) Measured by Laser Doppler Method.
