BETE recently supplied customised versions of its Maxipass nozzles to an ethylene producer to help it quench oil in the production process.

Ethylene feedstock is usually ethane, propane, butane or a number of other feedstocks.

To convert it to ethylene, the feedstock is mixed with steam and heated to a temperature of about 1500F (815C) in the pyrolysis furnace.

BETE’s specialist nozzle expertise was required as part of the cooling process downstream from the pyrolysis furnace: here the process stream needs to be cooled for the chemical reactions to take place.

This is accomplished by injecting oil into the process stream to reduce the temperature.

A good spraying pattern is required in the process stream to ensure effective cooling.

BETE was given a specification that gave the temperature and pressure outside the nozzle, along with the temperature, viscosity, type of fluid, density and available pressure across the nozzle.

The solution was the BETE Maxipass nozzles, which are designed for hydrocarbon-feed applications as they offer a uniform distribution, good drop size and are available in a range of materials.

BETE supplied the nozzles in 316L stainless.

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

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.
