Detecting Nozzle Wear

Detecting Nozzle Wear
This video shows two identical nozzles spraying side by side. One nozzle is new. The other nozzle is worn by 30%. Despite the wear, the two spray patterns look the same. To determine which nozzle is worn, the sprayed liquid is being collected in tubes. The liquid volume in the tubes quickly reveals which nozzle is spraying 30% over capacity. When nozzles spray over capacity, water, chemicals and energy are wasted and product/process quality can be compromised.; Using worn nozzles can be very costly -- often wasting hundreds of thousands of dollars. Contact Spraying Systems Co. for more information on how to minimize and detect wear and determine the optimal nozzle replacement interval for your application.
