Concrete Curing Nozzles

Humidify concrete to control curing process


Proper concrete curing procedures require keeping the concrete moist in an environment with high relative humidity in order to avoid cracking and to achieve desired physical properties such as strength, durability, and stability. Spray nozzles can offer a simple solution to maintaining target conditions by humidifying the surrounding air, thus slowing evaporation from the curing concrete. BETE offers a wide variety of nozzles which can provide the precise control necessary for any concrete curing application.
 

Selecting a Concrete Curing Nozzle:

Important factors to consider:

  • Initial and desired relative humidity levels
  • Size and shape of objects and curing space
  • Ventilation rates and air currents of curing space
  • Temperature and environment
  • Desired curing speed
  • Available and required flow rate
  • Water quality / filtration
  • Availability of compressed air
  • Available pressure drop (∆P) across the nozzle
    • ∆P = supply pressure at nozzle inlet - process pressure outside nozzle
  • Our experienced engineers can help determine which nozzle will perform as required with your design details
