The addition of a set of spray nozzles to a wet scrubber in an asphalt plant improved efficiency to meet more stringent air pollution control requirements. The ability of the spray nozzles to produce a uniform distribution of finely atomized droplets in a wide spray angle was a major factor in reducing the emissions. In this two-fluid atomizer, liquid is brought in axially and enters a vortex chamber having a tangential inlet for air. Interaction of the air and water in the chamber creates extreme turbulence. Atomization and effective fluid distribution are further enhanced by an internal deflector plate, a venturi orifice section, and a stem supported deflector plate at the face of the nozzle. This plate also controls the angle of the conical spray pattern.
