Even Coverage in Spray Application
Blacoh Fluid Control recently consulted with a decontamination facility that pumped acids through a series of 15° spray nozzles to rinse radiation from contaminated metals. However, the pulsating action of their reciprocating pumps caused uneven spray into the rinse tanks, and in many instances, the metals were not rinsed completely.
To solve this issue, a Blacoh SENTRY 1 Pulsation Dampener was installed at each pump discharge manifold to eliminate the surging flow of the pumps and ensure complete coverage and thorough cleaning.
Since installation, the even flow ensures that the metal product is completely rinsed of radiation. Furthermore, both process time and amount of acid required have been reduced, which has increased both productivity and profit.
