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.
