My first nozzle

Post  rocketradio7 on Sun Oct 24, 2010 3:20 pm

Hellow everyone

I know I am late but here is my project for your viewing. I am using a filter but it seemes to me my streem moves too much. Any observations would be appreciated.

Do you have a low pass filter? That could help eliminate/reduce the dancing in the stream.

I love the way you used a dollar bill to show how laminar the stream is. Very Happy
A low-pass filter certainly helps absorb the variations in water pressure.

Yes I am using a low pass filter. In fact at the time I had two hooked up.

Wow! It looks great! I really like your stand with the knobs to adjust it. NICE!

If you had 2 of them hooked then I guess my question is what size are they. The larger the filter/holding tank the more stable the flow should be. Have you seen the video parabolaqueous my Zachary Carpenter on Youtube? Just search for that term and he explains a lot of the filter results and he also has an ENORMOUS filter hooked up. I think it's an old water heater or something. The problem with the larger filters is that the longer it takes to fill them up completely.

YOu could try two different sizes of filters, maybe one large and one small. My theory is that the larger ones will filter out the big disturbances and the smaller one will react to the smaller disturbances, but I don't have any proof. Just a though. Kind of like the high pass, and low pass filters in electronics.

Yes I have seen the video by Zachary. I have three different filters, all two feet tall. The two I had hooked up were 4 inch pvc and 4 inch stainless steel. I Also have a 6 inch clear pvc one that I did not use with nozzle configeration. The pump I am using is the one Ike said he uses. I have tried different pumps at other stages of the build but it is always the same. The streem just moves more then I think it should.

I believe this should not be the case but is it possable that the pump is reacting to changes in house current.
I did look at it and you do see some varyations but I don't know?


Thanks to all
