July 29th, 2009 - Water valve and Nozzle mounted to the Cobra

Here are the results from yesterday's experiments. Our large-scale ice chip and snow delivery system was modified by adding a water valve on the nozzle to deliver a flat-spray of water on the deposited ice. We have also mounted it on the Cobra and programmed the valve to open from the point of origin to the finish along a straight path.

The rate of deposition was approximately 1/10" per iteration. Modifications to the nozzle and water-to-snow ratio are paramount in moving forward with this project.
