Miscellaneous Sprout Equipment

Spray Nozzles

Floral Mist Fogger

The Flora Mist Fogger is an efficient, economical way to provide moisture for alfalfa, clover, sunflower, radish, and other similar sprouts. Its all-brass body, jet insert, and spring wire baffle produces a flat circle of fog-like mist spray. Most efficient with 35-40 PSI or more. Body is available in 1/8 in. male pipe thread. Use pipe saddles for easy installation on PVC pipe. GPH:4

Germicidal Lamps

Germicidal lamps are low pressure mercury vapor tubes that produce ultraviolet waves that are lethal to microorganisms. Germicidal lamps should not be confused with sunlamps or black light lamps, though these are also ultraviolet lamps.Approximately 95% of the ultraviolet energy emitted from our germicidal lamps is at the mercury resonance line of 2,537 angstroms. This wavelength is in the region of maximum germicidal effectiveness and is highly lethal to virus,bacteria and mold spores. Please allow three weeks for delivery.

Pitchfork

Our all stainless steel pitchfork is easy to clean and is scratch and rust resistant. It is designed for the food industry with all welds ground smooth. It is electro polished after fabrication to pass the most rigid sanitary inspections.

Item #: EGSV

Tempering Valve

Our temperature regulating valve is designed to change the temperature of incoming water to a more desirable, predetermined temperature. It can be adjusted to deliver water within close tolerances of temperatures ranging between 15° and 120° F. Its thermostat automatically compensates for fluctuations in the incoming water pressure and temperature with a minimum of pressure drop. Temperature change is accomplished with a simple turn of the adjustment screw. The temperature valve will operate satisfactorily when installed in any position. Incoming water temperature should not, as a rule, be within 10°F of the desired water temperature.

However, depending upon plumbing arrangement, pressure differences and other variables, the installation of two valves may successfully eliminate the problem. Working pressure should not exceed 150 psi. Surge pressure should not exceed 300 psi.

This is a special order item. Item #: EGTV

Timer

Our table top timers give you push button control of up to four independent circuits. They are most commonly used in the sprout industry to control watering times. They can be used to operate electrical devices such as lights, valves, solenoids, pumps, motors, fans or other equipment. With twenty independent On/Off programs--or up to 40 programs optional--you can exercise control right to the second, every day of the week.

Time settings are entered from the keyboard, with settings displayed on the digital clock during entry. Any or all of the available programs can be applied to an individual output, so the On/Off sequencing can be as simple or as complex as you require.

Our timers are also available in wall mount and rack mount versions with up to 16 outputs.

Features:

  • Cycle times from two seconds to one year
  • Six-digit display shows hours, minutes and seconds
  • Directly replaces multiple mechanical timers
  • Tamper-resistant locking keyboard
  • Program up to one year in advance
  • Weekly cycle with day omission
  • Battery backup keeps time even during power outages
  • Countdown timer
  • Field-proven dependability
  • Up to 16 inputs
  • General lighting control/Photo periodic simulation
  • Process control
  • Activate Solenoid

UV Water Purifiers

Water purification through the use of ultraviolet rays is effectively and rapidly accomplished without the use of heat or chemicals. Special germicidal ultraviolet lamps are utilized to produce short wave radiation lethal to bacteria, viruses, and other microorganism present in common water. Ultraviolet energy at 2,537 angstroms (a measure of wavelength) is required for complete destruction of some microorganisms. The rays created by these lamps are shorter in wavelength than the shortest ultraviolet rays that penetrate the earth's atmosphere from the sun. This unique and rapid method of water purification is often used in hospitals, laboratories and veterinaries. Pharmaceutical manufacturers, food processors and bottlers use germicidal lamps to prevent product contamination and, in some instances, for the cold sterilization of the finished product. For commercial sprouting, ultraviolet water purifiers are best utilized in treating incoming water or for water.
