Situation:   A BETE customer from a large international chemical company called BETE Applications Engineering with the requirement for nozzles to go into a scrubber they were preparing to build. The scrubber service would be removing Sulfur Dioxide from a gas by reaction with Sodium Hydroxide that would be injected by the nozzles. Sodium Sulfite and water would result. The nozzle would be required to flow 1150 gpm (4350 L/min) at 30 psi (2.1 bar) and unleash substantial energy to facilitate mixing.

BETE's Solution:   BETE Applications Engineering coordinated efforts with both the chemical company and the engineering firm that was contracted to build the scrubber. The nozzle specified for the job was a special high flowing NCK in Teflon with a 15 degree spray angle. The narrow spray angle was chosen to concentrate the force.
