Fan shaped sprays produce a narrow, straight spray with tapered edges to permit overlapping of spray patterns. This is the most common pattern for a spray nozzle. Flat fans are produced in one of two methods; making the orifice elliptical in shape (F series), or deflecting the spray off a ramp (FP or FL series).
This type of spray is most commonly used in applications where the target is moving past the spray, such as on a chain conveyor, or in a car wash. Flat fans concentrate the impact of the spray in a small area, resulting in higher impact which produces effective cleaning.
This spray pattern is typically used in parts cleaning, metal washing, foam control, asphalt spraying, car washes, dishwashers, and more.
