High pressure mist cooling is one of the most effective, and efficient, methods available for cooling open outdoor areas. Cloudburst misting systems have been used word wide for cooling hotels and resorts, restaurant and bar outdoor seating, backyards and patios, as well as event mist cooling and misting 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. 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 misting 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 8-10 degrees by employing mister fans to facilitate evaporation.
