Exair's patented 1/4 NPT No Drip Internal Mix deflected flat fan atomizing spray nozzle atomizes fluid and sprays at a right angle to the nozzle orientation. This allows spray to be placed precisely where it is needed when the mounting and work areas are limited.

This new nozzle works in the same way standard atomizing nozzles do, but has the added benefit of positively stopping liquid flow when compressed air is shut off.

When spraying any type of liquid, post-spray liquid flow can cause big problems. Unwanted drips can ruin product function on sealing or mating surfaces. Drips can also ruin the appearance of painted or coated finishes. In addition, excess liquid flow wastes precious resources such as expensive coatings, chemicals, or water. The No Drip Atomizing Nozzle is ideal where no post-spray drip is permissible. When the compressed air supply is shut off, the No Drip nozzle positively seals off the flow of liquid eliminating the possibility of drips.

The nozzle is available in five patterns: narrow angle round; wide angle round; flat fan; deflected flat fan; and 360° hollow circular. It is used for pressure fed applications that don't require independent air and liquid control. Internal Mix, External Mix, No Drip External Mix, Siphon Fed, and No Drip Siphon Fed are also available in 1/4 NPT or 1/2 NPT.  

Applications include painting, coating, rinsing, cooling, quenching, wetting (moistening), and humidification and dust control. The compact atomizing nozzle is fully adjustable to minimize air and liquid consumption and has interchangeable liquid and air caps. All No Drip liquid nozzles are CE compliant and conflict mineral free.
