When looking to buy industrial hose guns, there are a few factors that you may need to consider. During the washdown process in the food and chemical industries, a substantial amount of water can be lost from leaking spray nozzles or water-spray guns that still emit water even after the lever is released. So it is important to choose the right water spray nozzles for cleaning that provide the mechanism whereby the nozzle automatically shuts off, the moment the lever is released, thereby eliminating all water wastage. 

Choosing the right water gun for cleaning

You may want to choose between low pressure and high pressure water guns depending upon your application. Different water stream types suit different applications. 

Heavy duty high pressure washdown guns are ideal for use in most rugged applications and where water stream from soft spray to a strong straight stream is required. Low flow washdown guns are ideal for use where reduction in water consumption is required.

It is also important to buy a water washdown gun that produces consistent spray pattern in order to reduce misdirected spraying and ultimately save water loss.

The material of the water spray nozzle is crucial especially when used in the food industry. A stainless steel seat design should be considered for sanitary food handling applications. It also helps prevent nozzle seat leakage further reducing the amount of waste water. 

We have done some research of the top quality washdown nozzles with reasonable price in the market and we found out the following options:
