Spray Lances and Spool Sections

BETE takes its ability to provide robust spray nozzles one step further to construct spray assembly fabrications that you can install for immediate use.

BETE_lancesRefineries and chemical plants have counted on BETE for decades to supply complete fabricated assemblies, custom-designed from the nozzle up. Starting with the process conditions, we recommend the most appropriate nozzle and then incorporate it into an assembly that meets all mechanical design criteria.

BETE works to your requirements, from the most simple to the most complex. Incorporation of client specifications is routine for us as is design, fabrication, and inspection to Code requirements. All design and fabrication work is performed at the same facility, ensuring close coordination through all phases of the process to ensure all mechanical and performance requirements are met.

Maintenance without downtime

Retractable lances allow you to remove a nozzle for inspection or service without taking your process offline. A retractable lance allows you to withdraw your nozzle, isolate it from the process, and then remove it completely for servicing all while maintaining the integrity of the process boundary. Once the nozzle is serviced or inspected, simply reattach it to the system, open the isolation valve, and insert it back into the process.

For smaller pipe sizes, retractable lances can be inserted and withdrawn manually. For larger sizes, or any size where automation or ease of use is required, BETE offers a robust retraction mechanism that effortlessly moves the lance. A simple cordless drill is all that is required to power the unit, making this design a favorite with maintenance crews. The mechanism is flexible in its configuration, allowing alternate electric, pneumatic, or hydraulic power sources to drive the unit.

Spool Sections

Just as BETE can provide the lance on which the spray nozzle is installed, BETE can also provide the piping section into which the lance is installed. There are many benefits to single-sourcing all components related to the spray nozzle.

BETE_SpoolSectionWhen all the work is done by one facility, there are no miscommunications between contractors about size, orientation, or location of the spray ports. The nozzles can be trial fit into the spool piece as part of the manufacturing process before leaving the factory. This translates to no last minute on-site surprises.

BETE provides everything you need from the concept design stage to on-site delivery, right down to the gaskets, studs, and nuts.

BETE provides drop-in solutions in the form of custom spray lances, quills, injection lances, and chemical injectors. Why endure the time and hassle to source pipe, flanges, nozzles, and fittings separately and then coordinate fabrication and testing of the assembly when you can have BETE do it all for you? By using BETE as a single supplier, you can be sure your lance will be correct the first time, every time. Our highly qualified welders are some of the best in the world, with extensive experience in welding dissimilar metals and exotic alloys, including nickel and cobalt alloys. BETE’s integrated engineering, quality, and manufacturing departments combine to meet virtually any code, testing, or inspection requirement.

Fabrications are BETE’s specialty, from complex Code compliant fabrications to simple pipe and flange assemblies. By using BETE as a single-source supplier, you can concentrate on your larger process details, knowing that our experience is working for you.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][subtitle3]
