When connected to a special high pressure pump, water is forced through our patented nozzles and quickly atomized to droplets as small as 5-10 millionths of a meter (5-10 microns).
Misting systems will produce billions of tiny droplets that quickly evaporate. This process of evaporation requires energy, taken from the air in the form of heat. The result is a temperature reduction of up to 35 °F (15 °C), depending on the ambient temperature and humidity levels. This is the most common use for misting systems.
When misting systems are placed inside an enclosed area (such as a factory or a greenhouse), where the air exchange is limited, the misting system will continue to increase the humidity level within the environment. Humidity levels as high as 90+% are possible. This makes misting systems them ideal solution for humidification.
For bigger areas, misting fans are the right choice. They provide the cooling power of mist, but also spread the cool air around to a much bigger area. For warehouse cooling, outdoor cooling such as crowd or event cooling, misting fans are also the best choice. For smaller or more confined areas, such as patios and outdoor eating areas, misting systems are the better option.
Yes, Stainless Steel can be drilled. Carefully measure and mark the required positions for drilling. Then use a 3 or 4mm drill bit to drill into the tubing, ensuring that you DO NOT drill right through the tubing. Clean away any debris from the drilled holes.
Yes. The orifices of the misting nozzles are so small, that they can clog if your water has any particulates in it. Our standard filter kit is recommended for most users. It filters out any particles in your water down to 5 microns in size. For even better clog-free performance, choose a double filter setup with one 5 micron filter and one 1 micron filter. This almost completely assures clog-free use for your misting system.
Filter cartridges should be replaced every 6 months of when the filter cartridge is noticeably dirty.
Some misting systems are designed for the ‘do it yourself’ consumer. These misting systems are easy to install and typically take between two and four hours to complete. A custom installation is more complex, and we recommend a professional. A professional will also have netter knowledge of electrical and plumbing codes to ensure that all electrical wiring and water pipe installation follows these codes without mistakes that could be expensive to correct.
Very minimal maintenance should be necessary for misting systems. Yearly cleaning of the nozzles will help avoid clogging. And the pumps do have oil that will need to be changed every so often, depending mostly on hours of service. Often it is not necessary to do anything for a year or two at a time but it is good practice to service the unit once per year. We suggest at the end of and the beginning of the summer season.
For the finest mist that can be made, we instruct our customers to implement 0.006", 0.008" and 0.012" orifice nozzles with their high pressure pumps. Bigger orifice nozzles can be installed; however, they may generate droplets with more volume and density.
Basically, a low pressure system can rely strictly on the city’s standard 30-85 PSI (2-6 BAR) water pressure. These low pressure devices typically spray hydration without having the ability to generate fine mist for increased cooling benefits. In contrast, our high pressure modules are made with high pressure tubing. They are commercial grade with the capacity to support a maximum of 1,000 PSI (70 BAR). Their extra longevity is accompanied by respectably admirable aesthetics.
To prevent freezing and damage, all of the misting system nozzles should be removed. The misting system line, the pump, and the filters should be drained.
