Nozzle maintenance should be a regular part of your production process if you want to keep your lines running efficiently. This is why the engineers at Lechler developed a Five Step Process for extending nozzle life. Learn about the factors that can cause poor nozzle performance and what signs to look for when your nozzle is not spraying properly. By following the Five Step Process, you can learn how to prevent significant quality problems and profit loss. Regular maintenance is also important for our high-quality tank cleaning nozzles. As these nozzles are more complex, Lechler has developed a maintenance concept especially designed for tank cleaning nozzles.
|Type of nozzle damage||Spray performance|
|Flow rate||Orifice wear||Increase flow rate|
|Spray angle||Orifice wear||Noticeable change in spray angle|
|Liquid distribution||Orifice damage||Effective coverage or distribution will be compromised|
|Spray impact||Worn nozzle||Lowered impact|
|Droplet size||Orifice wear||Liquid flow increases, creating large droplets causing poor performance|
