Muchas gracias, yo encontre nozzle, pero la máquina es una inyectora de pet y tiene muchos tipos de toberas, por lo que voy a usar sólo valve choke

disagree  Sean Lyle: your definition would make it "idle jet"

jet / nozzle


Explanation:
I don't know what your machine is, but if it is an internal combustion engine with carburettor, then according to the following refs, the answer is "jet".

www.redtecnicaautomotriz.com/Recorrido/Articulos/Marzo01.as...

... NINGUNA MODIFICACIÓN, NI ALTERACIÓN CON NÚMERO DE PARTE 16166-ZH8-810. D) LA
ESPREA DE GASOLINA CON No. DE PARTE 99101ZF5070 DEBERÁ DE CONSERVARSE EN "70 ...
www.autoypista.com/2001/Karts/Enduro/Anexo.htm

However, if it is some other kind of machinery, "jet" may not be correct, it may be "nozzle", or even "spray".

What you've got is evidently an anglicism, an adaptation of "sprayer", in the same way that we have "un esprai" to make the air smell nice or to kill insects!

I'll try to chase up a few more refs.

Explanation:
Esprea is used a lot more than I thought:
for asphalt for road maintenance, for example:

MAINTENANCE DISTRIBUTOR B-400
CAPACITY: 400 gal
HAND WAND WITH VALVE AND NOZZLE
10 GPM ASPHALT PUMP

BACHEADORA REMOLCABLE
CAPACIDAD: 1,500 lt
MANGUERA BACHEADORA CON ESPREA
BOMBA DE ENGRANES DE 37.8 lts
in www.seaman.com.mx/construction.htm

and this site gives esprea for nozzle in high pressure water cleaning jets:
www.termo-hidronica.com.mx/hidrolav.html

So you've got to know your context, I'm afraid..
