|Examples include de-scaling on continuous
casting lines, removal of solder flux on dense surface-mount printed circuit
boards, sheet cooling in hot-rolling mills and sludge transport in waste
water treatment plants.
The most common method of evaluating spray impact
involves load cell measurements with a target of known impact area.
Measurements are taken at a number of locations within the spray envelope.
At spray research, our load cell device
shares the technology of our proprietary
rate-of-change patternator, providing rapid impact force mapping.
Unfortunately, the bulk impact assessments provided by such devices are
of only modest usefulness in most critical processes. For these situations,
the droplet momentum, velocity and diameter are most significant, and the
particle analyzer becomes the preferred analytical tool.
