September 24, 2010

An in-depth look at how to conserve water without negatively impacting performance in a wide range of spray operations. This white paper examines the biggest sources of water waste in cooling, cleaning, sanitizing and moisturizing applications and provides suggestions on how to take corrective action and potentially save millions of gallons of water annually. Addressed in detail is the waste caused by using worn spray nozzles. The paper provides examples illustrating how millions of gallons of water can be wasted by using nozzles that are spraying just 15% over capacity. Techniques for identifying and minimizing wear are included along with guidelines on nozzle replacement intervals.
