(5) When it comes to nozzles, "standard" doesn't mean off-the-shelf. While NLB standard nozzles are designed for general use (instead of specialized uses like pipe cleaning or abrasive cutting), each is custom-sized to suit your application. When ordering, be sure to consider not only the pressure and flow rate of your pump unit, but the actual pressure at the nozzle, which is always lower.
Our standard nozzles have a single orifice that can provide either a tightly focused 0° stream or a 15° fan spray, depending on your requirements. The five shown below are designed for a maximum pressure of 20,000 psi (1,400 bar), and simply screw on the end of any NLB lance (and other tools) rated for that pressure.
For pressures up to 40,000 psi ...
(4) A 0° nozzle assembly delivers a high-impact, solid stream spray… ideal for precision cutting and other applications requiring a tightly-focused pattern. It uses NLB sapphire nozzle inserts (also used in rotating lance applications and UHP SPIN JET® systems).
A 15° fan nozzle assembly removes loose material over a wider area than a solid stream, requiring less overlap and providing a more uniform impact across the cleaning path.
(5) Nozzle inserts differ from standard nozzles in that they are held in place by a nozzle retaining assembly. Inserts are used in some of NLB's most popular accessories, including our SRH24 and SRH40 SPIN-NOZZLE® heads, the NLB3750 family of 3-D tools, and our NCG8450 UHP rotating lances.
The chart presented here contains basic pressure, spray pattern and application information for all NLB nozzle inserts, with cross-references to help you choose the best insert for your requirements.
