A thorough investigation of the existing texturing nozzles will, no doubt, lead to the design of improved nozzles. This paper reports the experimental research carried on the scaled-up versions of the T100 HemaJet with varying geometrical configurations, being the exit shape, situation, and inclination of the inlet holes, and the ratio of the incoming holes area to the nozzle’s main duct area. It has been found that the exit shape has virtually no effect on the airflow whilst other parameters contribute to the formation of the emerging jet which performs the texturing.
