Abstract

With the main purpose to define methodology and criteria for the vertical patternator evaluation, specific performance tests were carried out in laboratory using four different types of vertical test benches and a horizontal test bench complying with ISO 5682-1 requirements. Spray recovery capacity and reproducibility of results, both in terms of recovery and of spray profile were assessed using different droplet sizes, air speeds and air directions. Results of these first experimental trials pointed out that the criteria applied to assess the performance of the vertical test benches seemed able to discriminate the differences between the models tested. Amount of spray recovery was mostly affected by droplets size rather than by air velocity. Spray profile detected on the different vertical patternator types examined resulted generally similar. These first experimental results could constitute a basis for the development of a SPISE advice about test methodology and requirements for vertical test benches.
