SELECTION OF SPRAY NOZZLE AND ITS OPERATING REGIMES FOR REMOVING ICE DEPOSITS, FROST, AND FROZEN-ON SNOW FROM AIRPLANE SURFACES

For effective removal of ice deposits, frost, and snow from airplane surfaces at outside air temperatures down to minus 50 degree C it is advisable to use jet spray nozzles with a reduced length of the cylindrical insert or jet conical nozzles, while at outside air temperatures down to minus 25 degree to 30 degree C it is best to use jet conical spray nozzles with an increased length of the cylindrical insert. Optimum inner dimensions of spray nozzles and their optimum operating regimes are also established.
