Ultrasonic Nozzles

Sonicom ultrasonic nozzles are activated by pressurised gas; either compressed air or steam. Air passes through the nozzle’s inner bore through a convergent/divergent section at high velocities and expands into a resonator cavity where it is reflected back to complement and amplify the primary shock wave. The result is an intensified field of sonic energy focused between the nozzle body and the resonator cap.

Any liquid capable of being pumped into the shock wave is vigorously sheared into fine droplets by the acoustic field. Air bypassing the resonator carries the atomised droplets downstream in a soft plume shaped spray. The droplets have low mass and low forward velocity with low impingement characteristics. Fine atomisation ensures uniform distribution of the liquid with minimum over spray and waste.

Sonicom atomising nozzles operate at very low liquid pressures and have large orifices. The large orifices and low pressure virtually eliminate orifice wear and prevent deterioration of the quality of atomisation while significantly extending nozzle life.

The great advantage of sonicom atomising nozzles is their ability to provide a consistent quality of atomisation over a wide flow range. Turndown ratios of 50 to 1 are possible. By varying air pressure, atomisation quality can be varied from coarse (50 to 300 microns) to an ultra-fine fog (1 to 10 microns).

Non-Drip Ultrasonic Nozzle Assembly

Designed and developed in the UK by J D UltraSonics, the sonicom non-drip water valve assembly ensures optimum performance from the standard range of sonicom nozzles with significant improvements and advantages.

The ultrasonic nozzle assembly is completely non-drip, self cleaning (by utilising air to purge the nozzle before and after every operation) and reduces control requirements to a simple on/off air supply. The same air supply is used to control the non-drip valve and activate the nozzle atomisation.

Manufactured in stainless steel with stainless springs and viton seals, the assembly will operate up to temperatures of 180°C (350°F). The valve can be complemented with fittings to match temperature and body material if required with a choice of push-in or compression types. Both air and liquid inlet ports are female 1/8”BSP parallel and will facilitate swivel elbows, male stud straights or other similar adaptors.

Two Ø5mm clear through holes within the main body of the valve provide a solid mounting platform for direct mounting or onto the standard stainless steel swivel bracket available as a recommended option.

Nominal operating pressures are only 5 bar air and 1 bar water at the nozzle to deliver an optimum atomisation and spray pattern. These pressures can be adjusted to achieve conditions more ideally suited to customer applications if required.

Non-Drip Valve

The unique sonicom non-drip liquid valve has been designed, developed and manufactured in the UK by J D UltraSonics to improve the performance and life of the general range of sonicom nozzles.

The principle purpose of the valve is to simplify control by utilising the back pressure created from a single compressed air supply which is common with the atomising air. The air causes a piston arrangement in the head of the valve to advance and push an internal spindle down through the main body. This in turn lifts a poppet assembly at the base of the valve off it’s seat and liquid is allowed to flow through to the nozzle cavity.

When the air signal is removed at source the pressure falls and as it decays below a nominal 2.5 bar, the three internal springs close the poppet, lift the spindle, return the piston and interrupt the liquid flow.

All engineered components are manufactured from stainless steel with stainless springs and viton seals, the valve will operate over a temperature range of -20° to 180°C.

Air and liquid ports are female 1/8”BSP parallel to accept various types of fittings. Two Ø5mm clear through holes within the main body of the valve provide a solid mounting platform for direct mounting or onto the standard stainless steel swivel bracket available as an option.

Nozzle Adaptors

A wide variety of sonicom nozzle adaptor styles are available to provide an economical solution for atomiser fixing and positioning. Special designs and configurations can also be produced to meet customer specific requirements.

Manufactured from stainless steel, adaptors offer an alternative platform to the standard non-drip water valve for atomiser securing and operation.

When using adaptors it is necessary to use control valves for both air and liquid supplies and ideally activate the two fluids in a timed sequence to ensure the nozzles do not drip during shut off.

The main advantage for utilising an adaptor is that the air pressure used to operate the nozzle can be lower than 3 bar. In specific applications this may produce a desired spray pattern and droplet size which ideally meet the conditions required.

Certain adaptor designs are used for lance assemblies when the non-drip valve is too large or heavy to mount within ducting or other similar chambers. They also prove ideal when the design envelope is limited for space or feed pipes are restricted.

Mounting brackets can also be incorporated within the design specification to complement certain adaptor styles.

Lance Assemblies

Nozzle lance assemblies are designed and manufactured to individual customer requirements.

Each ultrasonic nozzle is mounted on an adjustable flange assembly specifically made to suit the desired central position within a duct, curing oven or similar chamber. The lance can be supplied with or without a liquid valve which, on a single nozzle lance, provides a non-drip operation at the end of each spraying cycle.

A standard 150mm square flange with four Ø10mm holes at each corner provides a substantial fixing to the outside of the ductwork. This leaves the valve, air and liquid connections exposed for easy assembly and maintenance and away from any contaminates within the duct.

Custom built lances can be manufactured to adapt specifically to unique installations including curved flanges, larger mounting holes, etc. A 90° assembly is also available to project the nozzle tip forward into the duct ahead of the entrance point.

Wherever possible stainless steel parts are used to avoid corrosion and contamination within the air stream and each assembly can be colour coded for identification purposes if required.
