Moisture Minus Temperature
« on: January 24, 2013, 09:03:30 AM »
Has anyone had any experience  using an atomizer opposed to using hot steam injection to help maintain wet bulb depression?.

A spray should work well.  I can't recall who, but there are a few people using them.  Not many.
I think maintenance is the big drawback.  You need a high pressure pump and nozzles with small holes.  These tend to plug.  The water needs to be treated to not plug the pipes.
Hopefully someone who is actually doing it can comment.
