Air Injection Systems Add Humidity with Precise Control over the Volume of Moisture

air-systemWith the dry winter season fast approaching, it may be time to determine what humidification system is best suited for your application. FogCo, the Internet’s top manufacturer of high-pressure mist and fog systems, has what you’re looking for.

One consideration is an air injection system. These systems use a specially designed control box and air injection nozzles to produce micron-sized droplets. The specialized spray nozzle is able to accomplish this with low-pressure air and water supply (below 40 psi).    

The droplet size as well as the flow through the nozzle can be precisely controlled by varying the water and air pressure feeding the individual nozzles. This is done by adjusting the pressure regulators that are included in the system control box. This adjustability makes the air injection system an extremely versatile humidification solution and it allows the system to be adapted to any environment. 

The control box is the heart of the air injection system. It includes the regulators, pressures gauges, electric solenoid valves, and the FogController II humidistat.  Once the controller is programmed, the system is completely automated and will cycle on and off as needed based on the programmed settings in the controller. The result is an automated and integrated humidification system that can provide droplets as small as 1 micron with flow rates from a few pounds per hour up to several hundred pounds per hour. 

The FogCo Drip Free nozzles have a spring loaded check valve in each nozzle that prevent dripping when the system is turned off as well as preventing the system from operating if there is a loss of air pressure in the system. The nozzles are mounted on a magnetic base for easy installation and they are directionally adjustable to further enhance the system performance.

There are other humidification systems that can provide for increased humidity levels within a given facility, but the air injection system is the most versatile and the most effective at providing increased humidity for greenhouses, clean rooms, printing facilities, or any other application where specific humidity levels need to be maintained.
