Effective Mist Cooling without getting wet

High pressure Mist Cooling is one of the most effective, and efficient, methods available for cooling open outdoor areas. Misting Systems have been used worldwide for cooling hotel, resort, restaurant and bar outdoor seating areas, backyards and patios, as well as event cooling and sports sidelines. They are also used in a multitude of harsh industrial, construction, manufacturing and agricultural settings for climate control, humidification and dust suppression.

Mist Cooling works by forcing water through specially designed misting nozzles to create a fog of ultra fine water droplets. The general rule in the Misting Industry is the higher the pressure the smaller the droplets and the faster the evaporation. For example, a High-Pressure Misting System that produces between 800 and 1200 psi utilizes a process called ‘flash evaporation’, which occurs when the High-Pressure Misting is forced out through nozzles with very small orifices, around the size of hair on your head. It creates a very fine mist that results in a significant drop in temperature without wetness.

A common misconception is that misting is meant to get you all wet to cool you off. Rather, the tiny droplets or fog, quickly evaporate, cooling the surrounding air. Properly designed, a mist cooling system will work with prevailing winds and air movement, and are often combined with fans to move mist or cooled air into the cooled zones. Mist cooling can reduce the temperature up to 30 degrees Fahrenheit in very dry climates. And, it can still perform quite effectively even in very humid climates, often reducing temperatures by as much as 15-25 degrees by employing fans to facilitate evaporation.

High Pressure Misting  is a very effective & efficient way to cool down large areas - even in high humidity climates.

Misting & Humidity

Another common misconception is that in a high humidity environment misting only adds to the humidity. But in fact, with the use of the correct size mist nozzles, nozzle & mist line placement, pump size and the correct use of misting fans, we can cool down almost any area as much as 25 degrees without getting anyone wet.  This is because we have the capability of producing such a fine mist droplet that it evaporates almost immediately even in the most humid conditions.

So whether you live in the dryness of the Southwest states or the 80% humidity of South Louisiana, we can keep you cool & dry with the correct use of the best misting equipment & installers in the area.

Cooling Principle

By forcing water through our specially designed misting nozzles, we create a fog of ultra fine water droplets with an average size of 50 microns or less.

These tiny water droplets quickly absorb the energy (heat) present in the environment and evaporate, becoming water vapor (gas). The energy (heat) used to change the water to a gas is eliminated from the environment, hence the air is cooled.

Relative humidity is the amount of moisture in the air compared to the amount of moisture the air could absorb at the same temperature, is a crucial factor in determining cooling potential. The lower the relative humidity, the more water can be vaporized, and the more heat can be removed.

Evaporative Cooling can be used effectively in most geographical locations. This is because when temperatures reach their peak during the day, humidity is normally at its lowest point.

Indoor/Outdoor Cooling

The ability to cool outdoor areas depends on one major factor - the wind. With either light wind or no wind you can achieve some remarkable results depending on temperature and humidity . Cooling outdoor areas is relatively straight forward and can be broken into 2 different types:

  1. Athletic and Amusement Cooling
    In this type of cooling, the people don't mind getting damp, and more often then not prefer to. Generally, fans are placed at head height, so people can stand directly in front of the fan.

  2. Restaurant/Factories/Hospitality
    When cooling a large area where the people don't want to notice the moisture. The fan(s) should be set at their highest level with the fan, aimed slightly above the horizon with the oscillation set to match the area being cooled. If possible place the fan 10-20' behind the area to be cooled. This will allow the cooled air to settle and keep the units sound from being bothersome.

Indoor Cooling

When cooling indoor areas, it is important to remember that you will need to take advantage of any natural flow of air. You can check for existing ventilation by turning on the mist without the fan on and watch where the mist goes. You will also need to determine your source of outside air and where your outlet for the air is. Very often the outlet will be a door or a window on the opposite side of the structure from the inlet air.
