Retractable Cooling Lances

Custom Solutions Bulletin 018
Application #050116
Industry: Petrochemical Processing
Application: Cooling Tunnels
Product Description: Retractable SpiralAir (SA) Lances


A BETE customer needed air-atomizing nozzle lances to spray cooling water in a refining regenerator vessel. The nozzles needed to be made out of high temperature-resistant Inconnel 625 nickel alloy. They also wanted an option of being able to retract the lances out of the gas flow when they weren't needed, reduce wear on the nozzles, and improve airflow through the vessel.


BETE Design Engineers offered lance designs for both permanent and retractable options, designing the retractable lance components to over 150% of the customers 380 °F (193 °C) temperature specification, and also allows for 360° of nozzle head rotation if needed.
