What is Spray Analysis and Research? Problem-Solving, Optimizing Performance and Finding New Ways to Spray
In more complex spray operations, such as gas cooling, coating with viscous liquids and tablet coating, finding the spray nozzle and system that delivers the exact performance requires some research. In these operations, it’s not possible to reproduce the process conditions in which the nozzles will be used. That’s why we have a group dedicated to Spray Analysis and Research. This group conducts tests in our spray laboratories – the largest in the world – and uses sophisticated modeling tools to determine spray performance using a customer’s exact operating conditions. The result of this research and testing validates nozzle selection while looking at other factors as well: nozzle placement on the lance, injector and header, where the feed device is placed in the operating environment, the effects of change in operating conditions and thermal stresses on spray performance and more.
