Description

This press-fit version is designed for inverted (overhead) use and is commonly used for propagation or boosting humidity in a greenhouse. Our Greenhouse Misting Kit (KGRN) includes press-fit Tornado Misters and all of the parts needed to water a small greenhouse.

Average droplet size is 140 microns.

Press-Fit Tornado Misters do not go directly into the supply line. They require press-fit adapters to connect them to the supply line.
A threaded version for upright use which can be installed directly into tubing is also available.
