What components are needed for a misting system?
The required components for a misting system include tubing, specialty misting system nozzles, and a water supply. Additional components may be required for a specialty use of the misting system or to improve its performance.
The most effective method of improving the performance of a misting system that only utilizes line pressure is to add a high pressure pump. By increasing the pressure of the misting system to 1000 psi, the misting systems performance can be improved by up to 300%. This is accomplished because at these higher pressures, the specialty misting system nozzles are able to atomize the droplets from 1/10th to 1/50th the size of a line pressure system. These smaller droplets will not only evaporate quicker and provide much better cooling capabilities, but the system will produce 40 to 50 times the number of droplets which will further improve the effectiveness of the misting system.
