Spray Lance, Injector & Quill Solutions
For Improving Your Specific Process Conditions
Use BETE spray lances, injectors, and quills for injecting liquid or gas into a process stream to create stable conditions for safe and efficient operation of downstream plant components. Avoid wall wetting, pipe corrosion, costly repairs, and unscheduled outages from occurring with spray injection solutions from BETE.
Delivering Precise Performance
BETE can design and fabricate a spray lance or injector solution to precisely apply a liquid or gas into a process stream to meet your exact process requirements. Our engineers have years of application experience and knowledge to determine the best way to provide spray coverage and performance needed. Our highly qualified welders are some of the best in the industry, with extensive experience in welding dissimilar metals and exotic alloys.
Spray Lances & Quill Solutions
Spray lances are ideal when more precise control of the spray pattern, droplet size, or flow rate is required. A spray lance includes a spray nozzle and provides better mixing and droplet sizes necessary for specific process conditions. Injection quills do not contain a nozzle and are standard for applications that do not require precise control of the spray.
Maintenance without downtime
Retractable lances allow you to withdraw your nozzle, isolate it from the process, and then remove it entirely for servicing without taking your process offline. Once you have serviced, cleaned, or inspected the nozzle – reattach it to the system, open the isolation valve, and insert it back into the process. Such features are often a critical requirement for petrochemical facilities where process outages are costly. For example, specific applications involved in the production of petroleum contain very erosive particles. The ability to remove the nozzle for refit while keeping the process online offers tremendous cost savings.
For smaller size retractable lances, maintenance can insert and withdraw the lance pipe manually. BETE offers a robust retraction mechanism that effortlessly moves the lance from extended to inserted and back for larger sizes or any size where automation or ease of use is required. A simple cordless drill can power the unit, making this design a favorite for maintenance crews. The mechanism is flexible in its configuration, allowing alternate electric, pneumatic, or hydraulic power sources to drive the unit.
Design, Fabrication, and Testing Process
Our engineers start by incorporating all your project specifications to ensure we meet your design requirements and validate any industry Codes that must be compliant. From the simplest to most complex designs, BETE works to your needs. We use Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling software, which simulates the spray process to determine the best solutions for your process conditions.
We stock BETE’s in-house foundry with various alloys, and we are one of the first foundries in the world to cast Nickel Alloy C-22. Our engineers can help you select the material for maximum effectiveness and operating life in your application.
- Carbon Steel
- Alloy Steels
- Stainless Steel
- 310, 316, 321, 347
- Duplex 2205
- Nickel Alloys
Nearly all design, manufacturing, fabrication, and testing happen in the same facility. Close coordination through all phases of the process ensures optimization of mechanical, performance, and inspection requirements.
Using BETE as your single-source supplier, you can count on the quality and performance of our products every time – delivered on time.
