We often get the question of, "What is the difference between a SAC Nozzle and a VCO Nozzle?"
So, we came up with this simple visual to help answer that!
♦ Needle (pintel) only needs to seal ONE opening.
♦ Because the tip has more material, it is more robust and longer-lasting.
♦ We are also able to modify the tip for higher flow rates reliably because there is more material to safely take from
♦ Needle must seal EVERY hole perfectly or leakage will occur. This means that, if ANY erosion has occurred, the needle will not seal properly.
♦ Because the tip has less material, it does not have the potential to last as long as the SAC nozzle.
♦ Because there is less material to take from, we cannot safely modify the tip for as high of flow rates as the SAC nozzles.
