Concerned with the influence of the size of water droplets on the effect of wet compression, it is important to control the size of water droplets among 5–10 microns or smaller, for this purpose an experimental work is carried out by improve the surface behavior of water aiming to reduce its surface tension. Non-ionic surfactants and its combination were employed to reach such an aim. The surface tension of water was reduced from 72.9mN/m to 41.2mN/m or even lower depending on the cost. It offers a possible way to refine spray, and ready to use in wet compression process.
