Some of our products that specialise in the dairy industry:

  • Custom design, manufacturing and in-house service / repair of lance pipework and spray bars

    Spray Nozzle Engineering manufacture injection quills, also known as spray quench, spray bars or injection lances. We design and supply custom made spray bars based on the type of fluid and its velocity. During the design process we also consider factors such as the gas pressure, inlet temperature, target temperature, inlet humidity and gas flow.We work in conjunction with a team of engineers that design solutions based on water conditions, pressure, temperature and cleanliness. The lances are used in gas scrubbing, refineries, chemical plants, among a long list of industries. Spray Nozzle Engineering works to your requirements, from the most simple to the most complex.
  • The partnership of Spray Nozzle Engineering and Reel Tech gives you total fluid solutions. Our partnership allows us to supply safer and innovative CIP Tank cleaner and hose reel systems to meet the exact needs of the client. Our technology eliminates confined space entry hazards for personnel, manual handling of large and long lengths of CIP (Clean-in-place) hose, and fixed CIP Lances. Reel Tech Reels are designed with safer rewind speeds, explosion proof motors and can be integrated into PLC systems for fully automated washing. Our CIP rotating nozzles from SNE reduce CIP cycle times, water and chemical usage and turn around times, saving time and money whilst delivering safer cleaning solutions. Our reel technology also extends to bulk delivery-decanting and other food transfer and washdown applications requiring hose storage solutions.
  • Reducing scorched particle contamination and post shut drip

    The Drip-Pro is the Spray Nozzle Engineering check valve for the Click&Dry series, also known as non-return valve and reflux valve, this valve works automatically without external control or intervention. The check valve allows fluid (liquid or gas) to flow in only one direction; it will crack (open) at a minimum pressure preventing inconsistent start up flow, and reseal (close) upon shut down to further prevent undesirable drips leading to scorched particles and product contamination.
