- Unique Benefits of Ultrasonic Spray Technology for Coating Glass Substrates
Our ultrasonic spray technology is unique in its ability to apply homogenous coatings of liquid suspensions containing functional nanoparticles. Ultrasonic spray is created using high frequency sound vibrations, which are converted to mechanical vibrations. As liquid is fed through the center of the ultrasonic nozzle, it is subjected to these mechanical vibrations, which continuously deagglomerate any particles suspended in the liquid, providing highly functional, thin film coatings onto glass.
Our special glass coating spray systems provide maximum efficiency and control of deposition parameters due to the soft nature of ultrasonic spray, and non-clogging atomization process. Unlike pressure nozzles, liquid is not forced through the nozzle orifice with pressure, but instead flows onto the nozzle’s atomizing surface where the spray is broken into droplets of almost identical size. Up to 80% reduction in spray material, as well as drastic reductions in maintenance, cleanup and exhaust requirements are reported with our ultrasonic spray systems.
Tekno Glass is able to provide R&D, pilot line and wide area continuous manufacturing equipment using the same core spray nozzle, ensuring scalable solutions that will provide the same spray performance at all levels of production. In addition, atmospheric ultrasonic spray coating systems are a fraction of the cost of vapor deposition systems used for glass coating processes.
