Add headers/manifolds to reduce maintenance time and ensure long nozzle life.
Product News Monday, April 16, 2012: Monitor Engineering (Pty) Ltd
Enclosing nozzles in a header or manifold is a simple, cost-effective way to minimize maintenance downtime and extend nozzle life.
If you’ve ever struggled with connecting air and liquid lines or been faced with a tangled mess of tubes, you will immediately understand the value manifolds can bring to your operation. Set-up and maintenance time can go from hours to minutes and result in increases in production time. Downtime due to performance problems caused by bends or kinks in the tubing is eliminated and the added protection of the man¬ifold keeps nozzles operating at peak efficiency longer.
There are many types of manifolds readily available:
Channel manifold: Basic spray nozzle manifold incorpo¬rated in a C-channel for easy mounting and maintenance
Pipe-in-pipe manifold: Conventional spray manifold mounted inside a slotted pipe to protect nozzles from the external environment. Nozzles and tubing are enclosed in the manifold
Modular manifold: Lightweight and easy-to-assemble, this manifold keeps tubing organized
Compact manifold: Service nozzles while keeping tubing in place with lightweight, compact manifolds
Manifolds are available for both hydraulic atomizing and air atomizing nozzles. The cost for standard manifolds is typically low and easily recouped.
