More Efficient Hydraulic Descaling Header Designs
The demand for improved product quality and increased productivity has drawn the attention of mill operators and plant engineers to more efficient hydraulic descaling systems. Nozzle characteristics have been investigated and test procedures developed to measure spray patterns and impact. Improved nozzle characteristics and an optimized spray header design result in higher efficiency of the complete system. When designing a descaling header, other important operational benefits are kept in mind, for example, energy savings and improved product quality. The nozzle manufacturer must have detailed knowlegde of the nozzle performance under operating conditions and of the system design.
