How Misting Systems Work

How Misting Systems Work

Misting systems work by using specially mist nozzles placed in a line around the perimeter of an area. When connected to a high pressure (1,000psi.) misting pump, water is forced through specially sized nozzles that are designed to accomplish an extremely high emission velocity with a low flow rate. Liquids are atomized into aerosol particles, which flash-evaporate evenly into the environment, creating an ultra-fine mist. Our misting nozzles will atomize liquid even in climates with fairly high relative humidity with a very low increase of humidity. Each water droplet is as small as 50 microns in size that is equivalent to (1/10th the size of a human hair.)

Misting systems will produce billions of tiny droplets every second. When these droplets are introduced into the air, they quickly evaporate. This process of evaporation requires energy to be completed. The energy is taken from the air in the form of heat. The result is a temperature reduction of up to 35 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on the ambient temperature and the relative humidity of the air. This method of temperature reduction is the most common use for all misting systems.

When misting systems are placed inside an fully enclosed area (such as a greenhouse), the billions of droplets that are produced will initially provide cooling as the droplets evaporate. However, if the air exchange is limited, the misting system will continue to increase the humidity level within the structure. Humidity levels as high as 85+% are possible. This unique characteristic of all misting systems makes them ideal for outdoor cooling, greenhouse misting, humidification systems, warehouse cooling, special effects fogging and all types of industrial misting and cooling systems.

Our patented anti drip misting nozzles are designed to accomplish an extremely high emission velocity with a low flow rate. Liquids are atomized into aerosol particles, which flash-evaporate evenly into the environment, creating an ultra-fine mist. Our misting nozzles will atomize liquid even in climates with fairly high relative humidity with a very low increase of humidity.
