XA nozzles produce eight distinctly different types of sprays, depending on which interchangeable air and fluid caps are selected. The set-up determines the spray type and flow rate with a specific combination of one air cap and one fluid cap.

Types of Spray Set-Ups

Internal & External Mix Setups
Image

Internal Mixing

  • Liquid and air streams come together inside the nozzle and are mixed, and they exit through the same orifice.
  • The streams are not independent; airflow changes will affect the liquid flow.
  • Not suitable for viscous liquids above 200 cP.
Image

External Mixing

  • The air and liquid streams exit the nozzle independently through each orifice.
  • Air and liquid flow rates can be independently controlled, allowing precise fluid metering.
  • Suitable for all liquids, including viscous liquids above 200 cP.
Siphon Set-Ups

Internal and External Mix Set-ups require the liquid supplied to the nozzle under pressure from a municipal water supply, pump, or pressure vessel. Siphon Set-ups use the flow of compressed air within the nozzle to siphon liquid from a container. Siphon set-ups are frequently used for spraying additives from a container without a pump. They provide the lowest flow rates available in the XA series (as low as 0.1 GPH).

Pressure System Set-Ups
In a pressure-fed system, the liquid is supplied under pressure to either internal or external mix BETE XA Series nozzles. Air and liquid regulators control the fluid delivery pressure, while the air filter and liquid strainer ensure that the supplied fluids are of high quality. Operational control is maintained by manual or solenoid valves used in conjunction with the various hardware assemblies.
XA OVERVIEW

Basic XA Operation & Components

The basic XA spray nozzle assembly consists of a body, a spray set-up, and a hardware assembly that can provide shut-off and clean-out capabilities.

Non-Automatic
NON-AUTOMATIC

The basic XA body requires hardware assembly for manual shut-off or clean-out/shut-off.

Recommended Body Styles: XA00, XA03, XA05

Recommended Hardware Assemblies: End Plug, Shut-off, Clean-Out, or Clean-out/Shut-off

Spray Nozzle Assembly & Set-Up Numbers

Spray Assembly Part Numbers

Standard XA assemblies include an air cap, fluid cap, and body style and hardware assemblies and mounting hardware is optional. The chart below can be used as a guide for creating an XA spray assembly set-up number. For Set-Up Numbers please refer to the section “Air Cap & Fluid Cap Spray Set-Up Numbers.

*For extensions, end plug hardware is standard; air-operated hardware may be provided on an application-specific basis.

Air Cap & Fluid Cap Spray Set-Up Number
Each of the seven air caps produces a unique spray pattern and flow rate when paired with a fluid cap. The set-up number is determined by the air cap (AC) and fluid cap (FC) combo. Please refer to the chart below.
