Baltic Freya aeroponic e-Nozzles comprise two key components – a titanium nozzle and an electronic management system.
The titanium nozzle is an acoustic atomizer – it generates and precisely delivers ultrasonic waves to the nozzle's tip, which rapid vibration from 10,000 to +100,000 times per second. Vibration rate determines droplet diameters, which eliminates the need for any pressure pumping systems. Furthermore, the titanium nozzle's liquid channel is between 2mm and 6mm in width, which prevents clogging.
The electronic management system controls vibration rate, tracks the e-Nozzles performance, and is used to remotely control droplet diameters and aerosol dispersal intervals.
We are now building a small manufacturing and assembly line, with the planned start in early November, 2022. Shipping will start on January 2, 2023. All pre-orders will be delivered before March 31, 2023. First orders placed will be the first orders produced and delivered.
Clogging is one of the key problems that causes failures, crop death and increases operational costs. Clogging often happens when large solid particles (scale, undissolved nutrients, biomass debris, etc.) blocks the pressure nozzle orifice from inside. Aeroponic pressure nozzles capable of producing the required droplet diameter (around 30µm) orifices are approximately 0.3 mm in diameter. Furthermore, clogging can occur externally – liquid droplets accumulate on the surface of the nozzle which calcify over time and obstruct the orifice externally.
Baltic Freya’s e-Nozzles have atomization orifices that start from 2 millimeters in diameter and go up to 6 millimeters – so far, we have stress-tested the nozzles with sand, filter media (glass), glycerin, organics, biofilm. With regard to external calcification - intense acoustic vibration used for nutrient liquid atomization (vibration between 10k to +100k times per second) prevents any sedimentation or accumulation of solid particles, calcification or biofilm.
On top of that, Baltic Freya nozzles have built-in self-scanning and self-cleaning parameters – if the nozzle detects any plaque, it will deliver high-powered vibration to its surface perimeter to immediately remove the debris.
Simply put, if you manage to clog up one of the nozzles – it is likely that there are other problems with your nutrient solution, pump or operating procedures. Nonetheless, we will replace any clogged nozzles free of charge (Commercial & Research products).
Yes. Developing products for hobbyists and enthusiasts is one of the best ways to get feedback and build a community around aeroponic cultivation. In order to meet your pricing requirements, however, we do not offer advanced features (droplet diameter manipulation, software, electrostatic charge, etc.). If you are interested in such features, please send us an inquiry.
Yes. Our commercial aeroponic systems for indoor farms and greenhouses are tailored specifically to your crops, operational needs, infrastructure and include optional advanced features such as adjustable droplet diameter, electrostatic charge as well as pre-developed autonomous irrigation protocols.
For the longest time, there were plenty of good reasons not to choose aeroponic irrigation – constant clogging, extensive infrastructure, setup stress and operating intensity can very easily erase the benefits that come from higher yields and increased number of harvests.
This is no longer true – we have developed smart uncloggable e-Nozzles that require very little maintenance and deliver all the benefits without any drawbacks. Furthermore, aeroponic cultivation requires 2-3x less water and fertilizer, which can reduce costs as well as let you use more expensive products and stimulants.
Please read our Aeroponics Science page to learn more.
Aeroponic cultivation and organic fertilization have never been successfully deployed due to constant clogging issues. Furthermore, high pressure aeroponic systems can kill beneficial bacteria by rupturing their membranes at high PSI installations.
Baltic Freya's uncloggable e-Nozzles can now enable organic fertilization, craft aeroponic crop cultivation, aquaponic+aeroponic projects and other new business models.
Simple answer – no.
The NEBULA Series e-Nozzles systems will be managed through physical control panels. Commercial and Researcher systems can optionally have Baltic Freya OS, or can be managed through physical control panels.
Operating voltage is 24V and our recommended power supplies can operate different power grid configuration.
Our aeroponic nozzles only need you to deliver the liquid to the nozzle body - no additional pressure is needed. You will need to factor in the height at which you choose to mount the e-Nozzle(s) when you choose your pump. If you would like some help in figuring out the pumps, let us know at team(a)balticfreya.com and we'll be happy to consult you!
Simple answer: between 30W and 50W per hour; or between 1-2W per liter.
Baltic Freya e-Nozzles are electromechanical devices, which means they need power to operate. NEBULA series E-Nozzles have similar internal operating parameters, therefore their power consumption can be similar in some scenarios. At non-stop usage, the e-Nozzles are designed to atomize 27 to 32 liters of liquid per hour at between 30W and 50W. However, changing its vibration parameters to manipulate droplet diameters will impact the power consumption.
At the very least, you will need a small pump, a nutrient solution tank and a source of power to run the appliances. No expansion tanks, solenoids, high pressure pumps are needed.
