A new electrically actuated, automatic SPRAY NOZZLE for precision food processing and industrial applications is the latest product from BETE available in the UK through THE SPRAY NOZZLE PEOPLE. Eliminating (or at least minimising) waste and reducing over-spray are important objectives in most processing / manufacturing environments and this is where the HydroPulse® Spray Nozzle will be appreciated.

HydroPulse nozzles ensure that precise volumes of ingredients and compounds can be sprayed directly onto a processing target, with overspray waste virtually eliminated. When combined with BETE’s FlexFlow™ Precision Spray Control System uniform and consistent coverage can be achieved, even when conveyor speeds need to be adjusted.

The nozzles do not require a compressed air source and are capable of cycling on/off up to 150 cycles per second. This enables the option of using high-frequency cycling known as Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) to vary the liquid spray flow rate at a constant supply pressure with little change in spray performance by adjusting the duty cycle. When the spray cycles at a high enough frequency, coverage uniformity is maintained because the duration between pulses is short enough to ensure there are no gaps in spray coverage.

HydroPulse stainless steel electric spray nozzles are available in two main options. These are a hygienic food grade design with 1/8”, NPT, BSPT and ½” tri-clamp connections and provide a maximum liquid flow rate of 3.8 litres / min, maximum pressure of 17 Bar and a maximum cycle frequency up to 150 cycles / sec. An industrial design option provides a maximum flow rate of 3.8 litres / min, maximum rated pressure of 20 Bar and a maximum cycle frequency of 50 cycles / sec.

HydroPulse electric spray nozzles are just one of BETE’s performance spray engineering range of products which includes fog and misting nozzles, tank washing nozzles, material injection nozzles, custom spray lances and spraying systems for industrial coating, moistening and lubricating applications.

Our history
Our business started in 2000 as Bete Ltd  a joint venture with Bete Fog Nozzle (a leading US manufacturer of spry nozzles) to start with the Bete brand was the only product we sold. Over the years we have added other nozzle brands to our range and have expanded the territories that we represent Bete Fog Nozzle in to include France and Spain.

As we expanded our products beyond the Bete brand it became sensible to change the trading name of our company to The Spray Nozzle People. The Bete brand remains absolutely core to our offering and Bete Fog Nozzle Inc. still retain a 20% stake in our business

Our philosophy
To offer a high quality, comprehensive product line with added value – the highest possible standard of service, technical knowledge and expertise. At SNP we are committed to maintaining our leadership role by the introduction of new products, improvement of overall efficiencies, and above all – by listening and responding to our customers’ needs.

What we sell
Our standard range of industrial spray nozzles consists of thousands of different options in many different materials including; Brass, Stainless Steels, Hastelloy, Stellite and Tantalum. However, over 65% of production is geared to custom solutions.

Added to this is our range of economical, customised, non-corrosive nozzle systems, couplers and adaptors in PVC, CPVC, Polypropylene, PVDF and Stainless Steel that are ideally suited (although are in no way restricted) to pre-treatment applications. But what we really sell is our expertise in spray nozzles. We advise our customers as to which of our products will be optimum for their specific spray application.
