The customer who contacted us is a manufacturer of industrial evaporative desalination systems.
216 full cone nozzles were required to be installed in six manifolds of a watermaker to spray seawater onto heat exchangers. The first 4 manifolds are designed to contain 42 nozzles each, while the last two house 24 nozzles each, for a total of 3 desalination and evaporation units.
The surface to wet consists of heat exchangers with steam on the side of the tubes. The nozzles, placed at a distance of 50 cm from the beam, must guarantee maximum uniformity of wetting to avoid areas of flooding or poor wetting to ensure adequate heat exchange.
The nozzles must be supplied in S31803 super duplex stainless steel, a material with high resistance to corrosion caused by seawater.
