Gas Cooling Spray Nozzles
Evaporatively quench hot gases
Hot gas can be cooled to a lower temperature by evaporating a liquid into the gas stream. Smaller droplets lead to faster evaporation times and a shorter distance required for the gas temperature to reduce to the desired level.
Nozzle Selection Guidelines
A number of thermodynamic calculations need to be made to select the correct nozzle for a given situation and are based on a variety of factors. The information required to make these calculations is detailed in the BETE Gas Cooling/Quenching Application Data Sheet (PDF - 229 KB). With this information, BETE Application Engineers can perform the calculations and combine the results with their knowledge of nozzle performance and help select the nozzle that fits your needs.
