Stationary, Oscillating, and Purgeable Showers
Stationary showers are used for filtered freshwater and clarified whitewater applications where an even full-width distribution of water is required. They are usually furnished with fan-pattern nozzles; however, Kadant offers an array of fan angles and orifices for optimal spray pattern.
Oscillating showers are used when high-pressure water jets are required to clean fabrics or cylinders. Oscillation is an important consideration when using high-pressure showers because the high-pressure jet impact could damage the fabric or cylinder if the shower tube is stationary. Oscillating showers can be furnished with freshwater or clarified whitewater jet nozzles and any combination of alternating jet and fan nozzles.
Purgeable shower systems use purgeable spray nozzles versus standard spray nozzles. Purgeable spray nozzles allow reuse of water with minimal clogging.
