Know-how for you:
SCHLICK Multispray technology – progress in detail
The newly developed SCHLICK design for all current atomisation technologies for two-substance nozzle and pressure nozzle applications. The sophisticated SCHLICK design with a minimal number of individual parts enables simple cleaning and fast conversion.
Atomisation technology for cigarette production -
Moistening, casing and flavouring
For decades, Düsen-Schlick has been supplying systems manufacturers and cigarette producers with process-optimised atomisation technology. Moistening and flavouring are core processes in the primary stage of tobacco processing. These are ultimately responsible for the flavour and quality of the final product. Properly measuring flavouring additives and uniformly moistening leaves and ribs ensure optimum cutting and drying properties. This also creates benefits for the downstream (secondary) stage of cigarette production.
Say Goodbye to Blockages
Use of anti-bearding cap nozzles in fluidised bed systems
Blocked spray nozzles are a widespread problem in fluidised bed systems in which very fine or tacky products are processed. By using ABC nozzles, the pharmaceutical excipient manufacturer DMV Fonterra Excipients has succeeded in avoiding unplanned downtimes. Düsen-Schlick Anti-bearding cap technology (ABC nozzles) is well-established in the field of tablet coatings.
Nozzle ABCs for power users
State-of-the-art nozzle technology enhances tablet coating productivity
Improved spray arm design and advanced nozzle systems cut set up time in half on state-of-the-art tablet coaters. This has big advantages for contract manufacturers who have find efficient ways of dealing with frequent changeover.
Process Engineering & Optimisation:
Perfect atomisation without bearding
Anti-bearding air cap ensures that droplets are well distributed, and that coating and moistening are homogenous. The type of nozzle used for coating and moistening determines the process result. Normally, flat jet two-substance nozzles are used for this process. A new, robust air cap withstands even the most adverse operating conditions and thus ensures a clean spraying process with the ideal drop size.
Nozzle for the wood industry
Professional spraying in industrial wood machining, especially the production of boards, is gaining increasingly in importance. This is not just because of the increasing cost of energy and raw materials; it is also because increasingly high demands for quality in the manufacture of wooden boards encourage the demand for suitable processes and possibilities, in order to apply liquids as homogeneously as possible onto prepared base materials.
Energy Efficiency: Finaly Atomised - Efficient cooling of process gases
In a multitude of industrial fields, such as paper mills, glassworks, cement works, power plants, steel works, waste incineration, etc., cooling process gases in an economical and above all energy efficient way is becoming increasingly important. Evaporative cooling is the most effective way to cool and condition exhaust gases. By cooling the gases, a defined reduction in volume is achieved.
Brilliant Droplets - Nozzles and injection lances for NOx removal from flue gas
Air pollution regulations increasingly limit the amount of nitrogen oxides in flue gases produced by industrial combustion processes.
Brilliant Droplets - Nozzles and injection lances in use with flue gas denitrogenation installations
The SNCR and SCR procedures were developed for flue gas denitrogenation in order to meet the strict air purification requirements. Injection lances for the defined insertion of the reducing agent are an important component of both processes. These differ in their structural and procedural design depending on the application.
Coating with sugar solution or chocolate is not only relevant in the food industry. In the pharmaceutical industry too, coating with sugar is used to mask taste and to preserve. Whilst traditionally the sugar solution is applied to the coated item by hand, the application in industrial processes is now carried out using nozzles, in particular those with a fan-shaped spraying pattern.
Spraying with sense
Time and again conventional spray arms cause trouble when coating tablets. They are often difficult to clean and are not easy to inspect. The result is a disruption to the process flow and unnecessarily long set-up times. A new spray arm concept promises to improve this situation.
A question of distribution
Due to poor or incomplete combustion of the medium, soot is produced, and at the same time the emission values in the combustion chamber increase. With liquid fuels, combustion always takes place in the gas phase: The liquid fuel is first atomised, then vaporised, mixed with air, and finally burned in the gas phase. This article shows how atomisation can be influenced by various special nozzles.
Doubling spray rates
In tablet production, coating processes require a lot of manual operation and experience: The spray arms and nozzles that are used have to be constantly checked, and the spraying process variables require careful adjustment. A new nozzle and spray arm concept now allows you to achieve considerably more efficient processes.
In the pharmaceutical industry, flat jet two-substance nozzles are used in coating drums for the coating of pharmaceutical products. If possible, the coating process should not be interrupted for economical reasons. In addition to the geometry of the coater, the drying air and the spraying liquid, the nozzles play a particularly important role in this process. A new nozzle with an antibearding cap (ABC-Technology®) meets the requirement for operating security and improved handling during coating.
And it burns

In fine vapours - Atomisation technology in nitrogen oxide reduction using urea
During flue gas denitrogenation, the addition of a reducing agent is used to transform nitrogen oxides into a substance that can be emitted without causing any damage or can be used again. The reducing agent ammonia is increasingly being replaced by innocuous urea. However, urea has a tendency to crystallise during atomisation. When observing the nozzle systems used in urea atomisation, it can be seen that trouble-free operation is not always guaranteed.
