Aeroponic System Design Like A Professional Part 2

Aeroponic System Design Like A Professional Part 2

You want to learn how to design an Aeroponic System like a professional. However, you have questions about high-pressure aeroponics and don’t really know where to start.
You Ask:
How many nozzles?
What pump to use?
Will you help me with my design?
I don’t know where to start.

Let’s talk about the systems used in high-pressure aeroponics.
1. Misting System – includes the nozzles/flow-rate, and misting interval.
Learn flow-rates: Accumulative Flow-rates. Hour and Day. to determine nutrient usage, tube sizing, nutrient residence time – how long to get from point A to B.

2. Delivery System – includes the tubing length and size. The number of fittings like elbows, tees, and valves. The inputs would be length, height, inside diameter, sometimes material type. We can determine the pump needed or losses due to the delivery system. The flow rate plays a vital role in this.

3. Charging System – includes the pressure pump and the pressure tank.
Flow range of pump flow rate (GPM), power usage in watts (current or amps), the discharge pressure of the pump. Running duty cycle continuous or periodic run time. Pump demands are depended on the Misting and Delivery Systems.

The new Aeroponics Calculator will make you a professional designer helping you choose the number of nozzles, the tubing size, and length, the right pump, provide the power usage, backup power requirements for each duration, runtime or duty cycle configurations.

  1. Hi Lee, would certainly like to try your calculator tool, interested also in being able to provide feedback as well. Thank you so much for all of this information, it's fantastic.

  2. WOWOW…I am SO EXCITED about your calculator invention. I want one PLEASE. You bet I will give you my input because growing TRUE aeroponic is my PASSION and REALLY wants to learn. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your time & effort in making these videos for all of us. God bless😁

  3. I am currently designing a high pressure aeroponics system, one thing I am wondering about is: is there any reason why I can't put the drain hole on the bottom so there is no additional water just sitting in the growing chamber? Every system I see has the drain plug really close to the bottom on the side, which allows for additional water to sit in the chamber.

  4. rather than asking how many nozzles i can feed with my system, id like to know how FEW nozzles i can get away with, and base the rest of my system around that. is it possible to use only 2 nozzles pointed upwards in the bottom of a tub that measures roughly 18X36 or something similar?

  5. Very nice work thanks for sharing your experience and yes I would very much enjoy using the calculator it really gives me a better understanding on how the design works, thank you.

  6. I am currently doing small project on aeroponics. I want to know the best distance between my 0.3mm (0.01in) brass nozzle and my netpot. I also want to know how much nozzle is needed on container fitted with 6 netpot. My container quite small as it only 24L with dimensions, 400mm (15.7") x 330mm (13") x (H)210mm (8.3").

    Can I design, misting 2 netpot using one nozzle?

    Thank you very much!

  7. I would like updates on this calculator.
    Good information. I would also really appreciate a practical 'how-to' walk-through process of assembling and building an HPA system.

  8. Yes, great idea and i want it, I been doing DWC with mixed results, looking to do HPS for indoor grow, but dunno where to start. Your calculator would be an awesome tool to have and use.

  9. Just beginning to learn about aeroponics and it’s more than a thrilling concept I want to explore. I just came across your channel so I’m not sure if you’ve already released the tool, but I definitely would like to use it and design a system using it. Thank you for your work!

  10. This is only one part of creating an Aeroponic System. I have hundreds of excel spreadsheets just for one system. Everything is in relation to chamber size, the environment/altitude what type of plant, how long a plant will be in the chamber, cycle changes in conjunction with root growth, drain to waste or recirculating nutrients etc., And this is considering everyone is using the exact same equipment. For example most nozzles used for HP aero will fill a 26 gallon container easily using only 1 nozzle. But two opposing nozzles work better, yet now your parameters must be cut in half since two nozzles double the throughput. I appreciate the calculator, adding chamber size throughput would make it awesome.

  11. real issue is, how to determine how many gallons we need ? I am sure that must also be based on atmospheric demand, so in summer the number would increase.. issue is how to determine that?

  12. I design these types of systems on an industrial scale… mostly for the mining industry. Unfortunately, when scaled down to the size of irigation, the information is so scarce and hard to find. Your videos and information is quite useful, but I greatly anticipate "the calculator" as it looks like it will answer many of the questions I have been resolving by trial and error thus far. Please, please, please…. the sooner it can be released the better!

  13. Love to see more and learn more, also hope to have that calculator ! In your video you mentioned the nutrient waste – what happens to the calculation if you run the waste back to the nutrient container, will the calculation still be accurate ? I am also looking into fogponics, and am interested in combining both in one system .. Last question; what is the size of the water-droplets when using a aeroponic system, knowing that the water droplets in a fogponic system is 5 nano-meter, but what size is the aeroponic water droplets ?
