Atomizer Stated~If Stoner didnt have the deep pockets of NASA backing him i guess he`d be long gone too If atomix were guilty of patent infringement they wouldn`t have been granted their own patent or been able to sell it when they folded
They held US Patent: 20090293357, Aeroponic Atomizer for Horticulture.
Atomizer Stated~The Atomix used 2 full cone nozzles. In a 3x3x3 chamber, 2x 0.6gph nozzles would be enough if they can provide full chamber mist coverage.
I'm not calling you out mate. Just trying to confirm and talk about info out there.
I did some searching on the Atomix. The patent you refer to was never granted. It was a United States Patent Application that was not approved. Link
Here are some approved patents for AEROPONIC Link
Looking at there nozzle it was also a flat fan nozzle. You can see it in pics and also the linked document. Reading the patent they did there own search and stated why they though other patents were not precise enough and listing there reasons why there patent should be granted. It does appear though that AeroCulture ltd. and or atomix was wiped from the search engines for the most part. You can still access some of the old atomix pages in the wayback machine.
Only speculating but it seems that they may have in fact infringed upon copyrights. Caccoon folded also I see. I personally won't be making a commercial product to sell. Looks like AeroLife might have a situation when he finally makes some cash. Just speculating.

ahh..i see whats happened, you`ve quoted me out of context as it was just a general statement In a 3x3x3 chamber, 2x 0.6gph nozzles would be enough if they can provide full chamber mist coverage.
The Atomix was 1m x 1m x 380mm deep with a volume of around 345L.
Glad you responded. After creating the group as invite only I see that the admin/staff have not fully utilized or gone through the permissions in the group settings as I can not have a private section as it is intended to be and also they have for some reason limited the characters to 1000 per post so you will see more replies instead of one post.
They also do not allow bbcode for some reason here either. I mark it up to inexperience and hopefully they will read this and correct things.
I could not take the quote from the threads they were in using bbcode as I intended. What I was pointing out is where you specified the patent and also the type of nozzle.
Anyway. I was just trying to post what I had found. If anyone else wants to elaborate please chime in. Respectfully Ester
can anyone reccomend the nozzle and compresser to best resemble what the atomix used?
No one has posted any detailled information on the atomix nozzles so everything is guesswork..those that could afford to buy an atomix werent interested in what made it tick
As far as compressors go, a silent/dental compressor 1.5-2cfm with a 25L receiver will handle a few nozzles comfortably. If you plan to use a shop compressor go for one with the biggest receiver and highest pressure rating you can find so it wont run too often.
Well, if that patent isn't a detailed blueprint for the Atomix and nozzles, I don't know what would be. The author even states the correct atmospheric concentrations of liquid and that it "may be controlled by probe or sensor". Good stuff
