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.
- Hydraulic (Direct Pressure) Misting spray nozzles are common for their lower cost and simple operation, requiring only water pressure to achieve atomization.
- Air Atomizing Nozzles can offer finer atomization and high turndown capabilities for a wide variety of applications. The compressed air utilized to atomize the water can significantly increase the throw and coverage of these nozzles over traditional hydraulic Misting nozzles making them ideal for applications ranging from curing rooms to larger construction sites, such as bridges.
