Atomized Air Spray Systems

Dual Inlet Nozzles:
Air atomized nozzles typically feature two inlets—one for atomization air and one for fluid. The fluid flow rate is meticulously regulated through various means, including pressure-based and pump-based systems, ensuring precise control.

Atomization at the Nozzle:
The magic happens at the nozzle tip where air and fluid meet. Careful adjustment of both air and fluid flows enables the creation of a specific spray pattern. Internal mix nozzles combine the two elements before exiting, ensuring a clean operation with minimal dripping. External mix nozzles, on the other hand, combine air and fluid after exiting, offering versatility in spray patterns.

Elements of an Atomized Air Spray System

Compressed Air and Fluid Supply:
A stable supply of compressed air and fluid is essential. Systems can be pressure or pump-based, often incorporating closed-loop feedback controls for extreme precision. Onboard or remote adjustments for air and fluid are common features.

Nozzles, Tubing, Valves, and Controls:
Nozzles, tubing, valves, and adjustment devices form the core components. Valves, whether manual or electrically controlled, initiate the flow of air and fluid. Some specialized systems utilize electrostatic spraying for exceptional transfer ratios.

Advantages of Atomized Air Spray Systems

Enhanced Control:
These systems offer unparalleled control over spray patterns, enabling precise application on various surfaces.

Wide Viscosity Range:
From water to heavy oils, these systems can atomize fluids with a broad viscosity range, ensuring versatility in applications.

Efficiency and Cost-Effectiveness:
Atomized air spray systems excel in applying thin film coatings efficiently. They offer precise coating with smaller volumes of fluid, making them cost-effective in the long run.

Addressing Turbulence:
Large air turbulence can hinder droplets from settling in corners. Careful adjustment and the use of overspray shields or vacuum systems can mitigate this challenge. Correct setup and adjustment are crucial to preventing fogging. Overspray or drift-off can occur if atomization air flow is excessive.

In essence, understanding the nuances of air atomized precision spray systems empowers industries ranging from food processing to metal forming. By disseminating this knowledge, we pave the way for optimized manufacturing processes and efficient utilization of resources. Let the art and science of atomized air spraying redefine your approach to precision coating and spray applications.
