Whats a good water droplet size?
    #629514 - 05/13/02 07:01 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Hi everyone,
I'm doing some homework on water spraying/misting/fogging of mushrooms. My questions is, does anyone know what a good (proper) water droplet size in microns would be? I'm getting the impression that anything under 100 microns is good?

Any takers?

Lana!

I think that the droplet size in big facilities for watering the casing layers is greater than 100?m.
But when you use a hand spayer, the drops will be somewhere in the range from 20-100?m (I guess)...
So, depends what you want to use it for. If for fogging, they should be much smaller than 100?m.

Thank Anno,

Pinhead, the question is actually, "Who ISN'T measuring their water droplet size"

Many commercial mushroom farmers fog their crops. Why? Well its very important for them to maintain a consistant humidity level without forming condensation.

Condensation in a commercial setup can easily cause contamination of the crop, so with a little know how and tons of money:) farmers sometimes "fog" their crops. Many do spray, but even then you should have a fine nozzle to mist your fruits.

Dry fog is considered to have a 10-15 micron (volume mean diameter), wet fog (20-30 micron VMD), mist (30-60 micron), fine spray (above 60 micron), etc.

Applications vary, dependent the on the system, ambient air temperatures, and if the air is "still" when applications are made.

Generally, a commercial operation would want 20-30 micron VDM in still air.

Haha. 4 years.

Does Lana design women's shoes or does that avatar have some erotic connotations?

Seems like everyone's avatar has a erotic connotation.

What would be the water droplet size that comes out of a furnace oil sprayer?

It pretty much suspends the particles in the air and soaks the whole area.

I also saw a thing at home depot that hooks up to your furnace air flow into the house. It uses passive evaporation to humidify the home. I wonder if that could be tweaked out for the cultivation arena......
