Light up the stream?

Post  jest0017 on Fri Feb 11, 2011 6:58 am

Hi.

Got a question about the light in the laminar stream.

My stream is glassclear, it works like a endglow fibercable, all light follows the stream til the end.
All other stream i have seen works more like a sideglow fibercable, the entire stream lights up.

I guess that some one in this forum has made this noozle.

What im after is to get my stream to light up like the one on the video.

My nozzle is made of stainless steel and is 60 mm in diameter, 100 mm high and the exithole is 8 mm.
At the moment im using water from the tap.

Feels like i have tried everything, and nothing is like the youtube clip.

Thanks

That nozzle was made by Magic Nozzle here on the forum. What he did was put a chemical in the water that allowed the light to bounce off of. He used some water based tapping/cutting fluid used for machining. I have tried some of that as well as some other chemicals such as cooking oil. It works but if you add too much you will degrade the quaility of the laminar stream.

Isnt there any other way to get that effect?
I dont have the possibility to add any chemical to the water because
my nozzle will bee mounted by a little pond with plants and stuff.
And the water in the pond is used to other things aswell.

To my knowledge there are two ways of solving this problem. You either add something to the stream internally, i.e. something for the light to reflect off of, or disrupt the stream physical causing imperfections in it.

So perhaps you should take a look at the disrupting the stream using some sort of physical disruption. What we have seen thus far include a thumper, or a scratcher. Thumper do something like tap the top of the nozzle where as a scratcher includes a needle to touch the stream and disrupt it that way.

I have been trying to add micro nano bubbles in to the water because that gives the effect im after.
But its nearly impossible to do that without totaly destroying the jet.
