XA series data sheet - .PDF file.

XA series air-atomising nozzles from Bete have been utilised in the humidity control systems in purpose-built wine storage facilities converted from old aircraft hangars by one of the world’s largest wine logistics companies.

Fine wines such as Chateau Lafite, Mouton Rothschild, Petrus and Vosne-Romanee are among those stored at the facilities, some of which are worth in excess of £1,000 per bottle when mature. Therefore optimum climate control is vital.

The thick concrete walls of these structures provide good thermal and humidity insulation, but with such valuable assets a high-quality environmental control system is essential.  Piping specialist Regent Mechanical was chosen to undertake the installation of the system utilising Bete’s XA series air-atomising nozzles for the humidity control system.

A series of 16 XA PR atomisers were installed in four pods of four and because the warehouse was so large it was divided into four zones, each with its own climate control system. The individual zones have their own humidifying pod, which is calibrated and set to deliver the correct levels of water to maintain optimum humidity levels.

Key benefits of application

  • The XA ER nozzles operate with an external mix, which means the exit orifice can be larger, allowing for viscous fluids to be sprayed.
  • The XA ER is also a liquid pressure-fed nozzle (as opposed to siphon fed) so the flow rate is not dependent on the air pressure, which results in easier control.
  • They are available for 1/4in and 1/8in pipe sizes and can be specified in a choice of materials including nickel-plated brass and 303 or 316 stainless steel.

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
