Maatregelen ter vermindering van fijnstofemissie uit de pluimveehouderij: labproef karakterisering van olievernevelaars (druppelgrootte en snelheid) = Measures to reduce fine dust emission from poultry houses : laboratory study: characterizing oil spraying nozzles (droplet size and velocity)

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


Two spraying nozzles have been studied with respect to droplet size and velocity of the sprayed rapeseed oil depending on the applied liquid and air pressures. For the nozzle with a wide angle round spray the air pressure should be lower than the oil pressure and should be in the range of 1.5 and 2.5 bar. For the flat spray nozzle the variation in droplet size is small and the oil and air pressure may vary between 2.0 and 3.0 bar
