The oppressive heat of summer is a matter of great inconvenience for many. Misting is a proven way to combat and bring down the temperature and add moisture to the dry air at the same time. The important fact is you are cooling the outdoors, where air conditioning is not feasible. A correctly installed, quality mist system allows you to enjoy your garden and patio even on the hottest day.
There are different types of misting systems – Low Pressure, Mid Pressure, High Pressure line systems and Low Pressure, Mid Pressure, High Pressure Misting Fan Systems. Each type of these misting systems has its own advantages and some disadvantages as well.
Low pressure, mid pressure, high pressure misting line systems use an evaporation technique to cool the air around misting lines that are positioned along the perimeter of the area to be cooled. Water is forced through specially designed nozzles to spray droplets of water into the surrounding air. These water droplets absorb the heat present in the atmosphere and evaporate, becoming water vapor or gas. The heat used to change the water to a gas is eliminated from the atmosphere and thus the air is cooled.
Misting fan systems are based on the principle that outdoor cooling works best when evaporative cooling or line misting is combined with convective cooling or, in other words, cooling of moving air. The mist basically cools the air and the fan intensifies the cooling effect. To understand this concept, think of the ocean where breeze blows across the evaporating water, providing nature’s most effective cooling system.
The biggest advantage of low pressure misting line systems is that they are very inexpensive and very easy to install. They all use your existing water pressure from your faucet without the need for a misting pump to create mist and you are not required to buy any further gadgets.
Mid pressure misting line systems are essentially low pressure mist systems combined with a small booster pump of between 120 and 160 psi. The droplets evaporate more efficiently, resulting in less residual moisture.
High pressure misting line systems are indeed the best. They are the misting systems that you see and enjoy in outdoor restaurants and amusement parks. Our high pressure misting systems use pumps that produce 1000 psi or more to create tiny droplets that evaporate almost instantly.
Like the low pressure misting line systems, the advantage of low pressure misting fans is they are inexpensive but more effective for the limited area that they cover than low pressure misting line systems.
Unlike with misting line systems, the mid pressure misting fans are not just low pressure fans with mid pressure pumps. They are high velocity fans with a low priced; mid pressure pump of 160 psi that improves the quality of the mist over low pressure fans.
High pressure misting fan systems are the ultimate in outdoor cooling and cannot be improved further. They are decidedly more effective than high pressure misting line systems. The high pressure misting fans use pumps that produce 1000 psi or more to create tiny droplets that evaporate almost instantly. The high velocity fan creates significant air movement to spread the cooled air across a large area.
The horrid heat of summer can often make outdoor events uncomfortable and that is where the installation of mist cooling systems becomes so valuable. Mist cooling systems also allow for considerable savings on energy. It has been effectively used by various industries all over the world.
