Custom Spray Lances, Chemical Injectors, and Injection Lances
BETE takes its ability to provide high quality industrial spray nozzles one step further by offering complete fabricated assemblies that you can install for immediate use, including spray lances, injection lances, quills, and headers.
Refineries and chemical plants, among a long list of industries, have counted on BETE’s nozzle engineering for decades to supply fabricated spray assembly and spray systems that are custom designed from the nozzle up. Starting with the process conditions, we recommend the most appropriate nozzle and then incorporate it into a fabricated assembly that meets all mechanical design criteria. Applications where Spray Lances & Fabrications are most commonly used include gas cooling, gas quenching, wash water injection, chemical injection, and SCR/SNCR (Ammonia injection/Urea injection).
Incorporating client specifications is routine for us, as is design, fabrication, and inspection to code requirements for optimal performance. All design and nozzle fabrication work is performed at the same facility, ensuring close coordination through all phases of the process to ensure all mechanical, performance, and inspection requirements are met.

Complete spray solutions.
Just as BETE can provide the lance on which the spray nozzle is installed, BETE can also provide the piping section into which the lance is installed. There are many benefits to single-sourcing all components related to the spray nozzle.
BETE provides drop-in solutions in the form of custom spray lances, quills, injection lances, chemical spray nozzles, and chemical injectors. Fabrication is BETE’s specialty, from complex ASME Code compliant fabrications to simple flush pipe and flange assemblies. By using BETE as a single supplier, you can be sure your lance will be correct the first time, every time. Our highly qualified welders are some of the best in the industry with extensive experience in welding dissimilar metals and exotic alloys, including hastelloy, nickel, and cobalt alloys. BETE's integrated engineering, quality, and manufacturing departments combine to meet virtually any code, testing, or inspection requirement.
Maintenance without downtime
Retractable lances allow you to withdraw your nozzle, isolate it from the process, and then remove it completely for servicing without taking your process offline. Once the nozzle is serviced, cleaned, or inspected; simply reattach it to the system, open the isolation valve, and insert it back into the process. This is often a critical requirement for petrochemical facilities where process outages are costly. For example, certain applications involved in the production of petroleum contain particles that are very erosive. The ability to remove the nozzle for refit while keeping the process online offers a tremendous cost savings.
Talk to an Expert
For smaller size retractable lances, the lance pipe can be inserted and withdrawn manually. For larger sizes, or any size where automation or ease of use is required, BETE offers a robust retraction mechanism that effortlessly moves the lance from extended to inserted and back. A simple cordless drill is all that is required to power the unit, making this design a favorite with maintenance crews. The mechanism is flexible in its configuration; allowing alternate electric, pneumatic, or hydraulic power sources to drive the unit.
