Misting Systems are one of the most effective and efficient methods available for cooling open outdoor areas such as patios or large indoor areas such as warehouses. They are also used for dust suppression, order control, special effects, and several other commercial, industrial and residential. The key is to understand what types of Misting Systems are available and then work with our skilled professionals to identify the right mist system for you.
This page only talks about systems used for mist cooling. Please see Our Services for more information about the other applications.
When people refer to misting, they are referring to a mist line system. These systems deliver water under low, medium, or high pressure to special nozzles that atomize the water into very small particles. The higher the pressure (up to 1000 psi) the smaller the particle size, which in turn means better evaporation and cooling. These systems can also be used in conjunction with fans to add to the cooling effect of any residential of commercial mist install.
There are low pressure DIY mist kits that you can just hook up to you water faucet and be misting your patio in minutes. These are a very low cost option that work “OK” in real dry climates or where getting a little wet does not matter.
But to really enjoy the true benefits of mist cooling and other commercial appliations, we suggest using a high pressure misting system. These use a pump to raise the pressure up to 1000 PSI. This atomizes the mist particle to as little as 5 microns, allowing the mist to evaporate much quicker producing MUCH better cooling and performance – in any climate.
Once you have decided on a budget and the type of pressure that would work best for you, then you need to decide on what type of quality and performance you want out of your Misting System. Many imported high pressure mist pumps are rated for 500 hours of use (or less) before replacement or rebuilding is required. Compare this to our proprietary USA Made, triplex pumps that are rated for 5000 + hours .
