John Brooks Company Limited is a trusted distributor in Canada of spray nozzles for Oil and Gas customers. We have a large array of products that are perfect for all applications and custom nozzle solutions that can be tailored to your needs.Our nozzles are first-in-class in reliability & durability in tough environments such as refineries and chemical plants. Our wide range of nozzles and materials can be selected to work well with crude oil, abrasive media, corrosive reagents, extreme temperatures, or all of the above. 

The top oil and gas companies rely on our nozzle solutions for tough environments such as refineries and petroleum processing plants . Our wide range of nozzles and materials can be selected to work well with crude oil, abrasive media, corrosive reagents and extreme temperatures.

Common Nozzle Applications in the Petroleum & Petrochemical Industries:

FCC (Fluid Catalytic Cracking) Feed Nozzles

  • Atomize crude oil feed using steam and inject into riser where it reacts with powdered catalyst
  • Two-phase flow with high particulate count requires large free passage and homogeneous mixing

Torch Oil

  • Apply heat to various processes including FCC re-generators during start-up to heat catalyst by injecting light oil
  • Also used to control rate of cooling during shut-down
  • Fine atomization is a requirement for efficient burn

Distillation Nozzles

  • Vacuum distillation is used by the petroleum industry in many parts of the refining process to separate hydrocarbon fractions
  • Nozzles are used to atomize the process liquid, increasing its exposed surface area and thereby increasing the evaporation rate and separation efficiency
  • In vacuum towers, where the gas side pressure drop must be low, packing is often used instead of trays. Nozzles uniformly wet the packing, over which the gas flows and contacts the liquid

Chemical Injection Nozzles

  • Inject various reactants, scavengers, inhibitors, or other chemicals throughout many processes
  • Wash water injection nozzles are used at various points in the process of refining crude oil into its component fractions
  • We can design a custom injection lance specific to your application to ensure proper fabrication, installation, and operation

Waste Disposal

  • Evaporative Disposal
    • Spray wastewater to increase evaporation efficiency
  • Incineration Disposal
    • Injection of waste or byproducts into an incinerator
  • Fine atomization is required to maximize surface area for these reactions

CCR Lift Lines/Refinery Piping

  • Compact and lightweight design can reduce length and outside diameter by 30%-50% and weight by 60%-90% when compared to standard flanges
  • Full port design features a non-restrictive, smooth inner bore that reduces pressure drop

Fire Protection and Safety

  • Spray nozzles provide personnel and system protection throughout the production and distribution process from offshore drilling platforms to refining to storage tanks
  • We offer nozzles for open-type fire protection systems:
    • Deluge Fire Protection
    • Water Mist
    • Marine Fire Suppression
    • Water Wall
  • Toxic Gas Mitigation
    • The fine mist of water sprays can absorb toxic gases in the event of a leak


  • Scrubber nozzles are used to remove pollutants and other chemical contaminants from a process fluid
  • We offer nozzles for a wide variety of scrubbing systems
    • Packed Towers
    • Open Towers
    • Venturi Scrubbers

Gas Cooling/Quenching

  • Nozzles are used for quenching in a wide variety of petrochemical applications to control process temperatures and protect equipment
