Fuente danzarina DancingAs we all know, the trend in the sector is to bring dynamism to water. This is why we are launching two rotating nozzles, used to obtain attractive water displays, which can be added to the design of any musical, dancing or cybernetic water feature.

Our experience in the production of impact sprinklers for gardening has been fundamental for the design of these rotating fountain nozzles. These sprinklers rotate at a certain speed due to water pressure. This is the principle behind the operation of a waterwheel. Therefore, generating movement from water pressure does not pose a technical difficulty for Safe Rain. We have now decided to use this fact to create architectural water features that are extremely simple to construct, but with great visual beauty, as the water moves without any additional mechanical or electrical devices.Read more

    Hello, I am interested in rotating nozzles. I need 2 pc. much powerfull, hight could be around 3-4 m, 4 pc. could be less, around

Water-drawing nozzles for architectural and water feature fountainsToday we continue our in-depth look at how the nozzles most commonly used in architectural fountains work and focus on those based on water entrainment or air suction – the latter used to produce a foaming effect in the water jet.

Water-drawing Nozzles. Based on the Venturi effect, this nozzle uses the speed of the propelled water to draw water from the basin which is then mixed with the initial stream to form a much greater mass of water than before. Looking at the diagram in figure 23, the jet of water discharged out of the central pipe is seen to draw in the water around the pipe. This effect causes an under-pressure that draws water from the basin. The jet propelled through the pipe when mixed with the drawn water forms a large mass of water discharged over the nozzle.

    Very Cool, this is how old steam locomotives used to add feed water into the boiler.

To conclude this section, we will continue with our recommendations on designing architectural fountains and are going to look at the following points:

9.- To ensure proper delivery of water from a fountain nozzle - – i.e. so that the jet coincides with the nozzle axis and therefore reaches its maximum height – it should be fitted with a straight section of pipe before the nozzle or else you need to use an accessory with flat radial blades, known as ‘flow deflectors, that reduces any secondary cross movement of the water flow reaching the nozzle.

We resume our section of tips about fountain design by turning to the all-important matter of water storage, feed circuits and water pumps

5.- Analyze the water storage. When the artistic design calls for one or several basins or mirrors of water in an architectural fountain, we suggest you size them so that they also store the extra volume of water required to fill the piping and keep the jets and cascades working, thereby avoiding the need to build additional water tanks to ensure all parts function properly (nozzles, undewater lighting, pumping systems, …etc)  and also to prevent overflows when the fountain is out of service.
