The Science of Misting

By pressurizing water up to 1000 psi and forcing it through a specially designed nozzle, billions of tiny water droplets can be created. Each droplet is smaller than the size of a grain of salt and can measure as small as 5 microns in diameter. The droplets are so light they actually suspend themselves in the air. This process known as a mist system allows for a reduction in the ambient temperature of up to 30 degrees fahrenheit making these systems ideal for outdoor cooling.

If the droplets are enclosed in an area such as a greenhouse, humidity levels up to 100% are achievable allowing fog systems to provide precise and reliable humidity control. Because the droplets are so small, they also have the ability to remove small particles from the air making fog systems a very effective method of dust and odor control.
