  • These nozzles are available in a wide selection of arcs and radii, as well as male and female threads.
  • Nearly all spray nozzles perform best at or around 30 PSI, but when pressures rise to 50-70 PSI even the best nozzles mist and perform less than optimally. 
  • Pressure compensating devices reduce the pressure to the more optimal 30 PSI and keeps it close to that pressure.
