Deflection flat fan nozzles

The deflection type nozzle produces the flat fan pattern by deflecting the fluid stream against a curved impact surface after exit from the nozzle orifice.  The impact of the fluid on the deflection surface causes the desired atomisation and the geometry of the surface shapes the resulting spray into a flat fan pattern. This means that the nozzle orifice can remain circular rather than being elliptical as in the case of standard flat fan nozzles.  A circular orifice is less prone to wear and clogging.

SNP supply two ranges of deflector flat fan nozzles, the standard FF range and a high impact variant (the SPN) which sacrifices some spray angle for a harder driving, more focused spray.  Full spec sheets can be found by clicking on any of the boxes below.  For a handy comparison of all flat fan nozzles please see the flat fan nozzle cheat sheet accessed via the orange button to the right hand side of this page.
