The Schlick Test Centre (STC) – a service centre for all your measuring and testing needs

Measuring and testing guarantees the highest quality. More than 100 years of development ensure quality and individual problem solving. This is an ideal basis as, after all, the nozzle is described as the ‘heart’ of the system in spray technology. We guarantee these necessary, high quality standards using a comprehensive quality management system, to which the Schlick Test Centre (STC) makes an essential contribution.

Our engineers and technicians use the STC for stress and endurance tests on newly developed types of nozzles, and also for continuous quality testing of the whole nozzle range. For years we have also been carrying out special measurements, tests and improvements on behalf of our customers. As a result of increased demand we have now included these testing and measurement services in our official range of services. Our wealth of experience = your advantage.

Through collaboration during the development of new drop measurement systems, Düsen-Schlick has made a considerable contribution to the high level of measurement accuracy that is possible today. However, as the size of the drop is only part of the assessment of a nozzle, it is crucial that other relevant criteria are also included in the evaluation.

We measure, analyse and document the following for you:

  • Drop size
  • Drop speed
  • Flow rate density
  • Spray distribution
  • Rheological behaviour of liquids
  • Sound level
  • Cleaning trials
  • Comparative drop measurement
  • Comparative performance measurement
  • Troughput measurement

The STC brings together state-of-the-art measuring and testing equipment in an area exceeding 400m². The following facilities are available for the evaluation of the sprays from one-, two- and multiple-substance nozzles, and for the evaluation of customers’ materials:

  • Dynamic drop measurement system (DUAL-PDA)
  • Extraction to the drop measurement system for the measurement of customers’ materials
  • Spray distribution testing equipment
  • High-pressure pumps
  • Viscosity testing equipment
  • Sound level meter
  • Heatable pressure tank

Furthermore, access to a network of neutral advisors from the fields of training and research provides the STC user with the assurance that, in addition to causal research and damage analysis, it will be possible to gain support in cross-process solution development.

We offer our customers differentiated services, which range from simple measurements with the appropriate records to detailed testing reports with discussion of the results and suggestions for improvements to your processes.

Düsen-Schlick is represented at the INTERPHEX New York this year. The event will be held 17-19 March 2009 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, New York, NY (USA). Düsen-Schlick will be at booth #1977.
