In all areas of spray nozzle engineering, manufacturing and application, BETE is a pioneer. Ever since 1950 when John Bete invented the spiral nozzle (also called corkscrew, "pigtail" or helix), our spray nozzle design innovations have gone into deep sea, deep space and everywhere in between. In 1993, we were the first spray nozzle company to have its quality management system registered to ISO 9001. In 2003, we became the first spray nozzle company in the world with a quality management system registered to the demanding ISO 9001:2000 standard. Additionally, in 2009, our quality management system registered to the ISO 9001:2008 standard.
BETE makes over 20,000 different spray nozzles. We pioneered the use of Teflon ® (PTFE) and titanium for nozzles and we're the only spray nozzle manufacturer with a complete in-house investment casting foundry. The majority of our products are specially engineered for our customers, and nearly one third of our business is international. The BETE Difference is our unparalled ability to respond quickly and effectively to any kind of spraying challenge, whether simple or complex, anywhere in the world.
