Grp27: Hose Nozzle
Material: Machined Steel
Manufacturing Process: Tubing is threaded by a die, and is forced into the inlet where a little bit of the tubing is left sticking out of the inlet. A coupler is used to round the end sticking out of the inlet. Tube is electro plated. This makes the nozzle easily cleanable and more resistant to corrosion.
Function: Deliverers mixed wash solution to trigger gun through the inlet shown.
Rod end is threaded with 11 threads per .45 inch. Nozzle Length is 1.74 in. Diameter is .265 inches. Rod is 7.4 inches.
Different materials were selected to prevent rusting, and corrosion.
The forces that are applied to this component are the forces that created the flow.
The force of flow is estimated to be the pressure of the fluid combined with the area of the pipe which is 5000 psi.
Yes the material choice effects the process. If this component was made with any other softer metals, than it would be easier to machine. These would be also lighter to ship. There would also be a more of a chance the tube would bend though as well.
Yes this shape effects the process. If this component was another shape it would take longer to make , and also would reduce the force of the flow rate.
This process was chosen because it is the cheapest, and easiest way the company had available to make this product.
The component has a circular shape to increase ease of flow through the system.
This component is functional. It was manufactured to just do its job.
The manufacturing process was probably chosen based on ease , and cost of the how much the process would be.
On a scale from 1-5, 1 being the simple like a ball, and 5 being complex like a engine, this component is a 1. This component is very simple and acts as a channel for the fluid to come into and flow through.
