JOHNSON TYPE NOZZLES 1″ STRAIGHT, IN STAINLESS STEEL 316
Micro-slotted Jonshon type nozzles are used for the retention of granular media in water treatment equipment. These media can be of any type, such as: activated carbon, silica sand, ion exchange resins, green sand, MTM, Birm, pyrolusite, among others.
In addition to the retention function, the micro-slotted nozzles provide good drainage and adequate flow distribution, both in equipment working under pressure and in those working by gravity.
The micro-slit through which the fluid flows has a “V” shaped cut, with the most closed part towards the outside of the nozzle. This design prevents clogging.
The microslot is continuous and has a total flow area of approximately twice the cross-sectional area of the connection nipple. This means that the microslot does not constitute a restriction to flow and, therefore, causes minimal pressure drop.
These nozzles are fixed by means of the two nuts that must remain between the perforated plate (without thread) of the false bottom.
The 0.18 mm opening in the most closed part, which is in contact with the granular medium, allows any granules larger than 30 mesh to be retained directly. This means that no gravel beds are required for support.
