Title: DEVICE FOR PRODUCING WATER DROPS OF A DETERMINED SIZE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a device and method for producing water drops of a determined size (10) in a device for the artificial production of rain, snow or icy conditions, comprising multiple spray nozzles (1) arranged on a retaining frame (4) and distributed in a flow cross-section, having preferably pressurised water supply lines (3) and preferably also gas supply lines, with which a preferably homogeneous distribution of the drops can be created in the cross-section, as well as a preferably precise maintaining of a determined size distribution, taking into consideration the required water concentration in the supplied cross-section. This is achieved in that multiple nozzle carriers (2) are provided, each having a static main body (2a) and at least one moving body (2b) preferably coupled via a gear unit, and in that at least one spray nozzle (1) is located on the moving body (2b).
