Fogging greenhouse applications
The amount of water to be sprayed into the environment is calculated using a psychometric diagram based on the volume of the greenhouse, the highest temperature and lowest humidity determined by the climate conditions of the geographical region.
It is essential to create an ideal environment for evaporation sweating and photosynthesis, which is essential for plant growth by keeping the moisture level in the greenhouse under control, to prevent the ideal habitats of life from deteriorating in very hot or very cold, extreme humidity or low humidity conditions. With the right humidification systems in the greenhouses, more quality plants, faster crops, less diseases occur.
In the greenhouses, especially in summer temperatures, healthy breeding environment is not available for products. Intense temperatures during plant growth are slowing growth, and in addition, monitoring and maintenance of products is affected by employees as working conditions are becoming increasingly difficult in the greenhouse.
Water particles sprayed from the fogging nozzle can be reduced to 15 ºC by taking the heat of the air as a result of evaporation. Depending on the desired moisture value, the air humidity can rise up to 95% or it can be cooled out by blowing out the damp air. Since more favourable conditions are created for the growing of the plant and the working environment with the decreasing temperature, the rate of waste decreases and the efficiency increases.
Stainless steel pipes or pressure-resistant polyamide nylon pipes are used as distribution lines for high pressure fogging systems. System operating pressure operates between 70 – 80 bar range.
