Straight Jet Spray Nozzles

A Straight Jet nozzle uses a straight orifice to produce a concentrated jet stream with a spray angle of 0°.


What BETE nozzle series and types produce this spray pattern?

Many different nozzles series produce a Straight Jet spray pattern. The following direct pressure nozzles produce a Straight Jet spray pattern:

How is this spray pattern achieved through nozzle design?

The Straight Jet is a single concentrated jet with a straight forward design. Many of the nozzles like the BJ & NF series listed above are categorized as Fan style nozzles. These nozzles have angled cuts which produce a flat pattern that fans out with a specific spray angle. The straight jet version does not use angled cuts, but instead uses a straight orifice that produces a jet stream with a spray angle of 0°. This design is common among Straight Jet nozzles.

Operating Specifications & Frequently Asked Questions for Fan Nozzles

Straight Jet nozzles produce a concentrated jet of water that has a spray angle of 0°.

Due to a spray angle of 0°, individual droplets do not have the opportunity to form.

Straight Jet nozzles can operate under a very wide range of pressures. Straight Jet nozzles usually do not have any internal or external geometry that limit them to a specific pressure range.

Straight Jet nozzles are not generally limited to a pressure range. Since the flow rate is a product of orifice size and pressure, Straight Jets have a very wide range of possible flow rates.

  • Straight Jet nozzles can be very useful for a wide variety of applications. They are often used in washing applications and other situations that call for concentrated flow and high impact. An example of this is implementing a HydroWhirl Orbitor machine for a tank washing application. The HydroWhirl Orbitor series uses the long throw and high impact generated by straight jets to clean a wide variety of tank sizes with stubborn residue.
  • The Straight Jet nozzles can produce the highest impact and longest throw out of any nozzle type. They have few limitations and nozzles such as the LP & PSR use their compact designs to make applications possible when space is at a premium.
