Misting systems have been an important factor which can be attributed to the success of many business establishments, including those of the food, industrial and agricultural sector. These systems are well known for their role in outdoor cooling of the backyard patio, garden or arou nd the pool. They also have a great reputation for helping business establishments with outdoor settings to have a smooth and continuous flow of their business operations at all times, even on the hottest of days. This is because they can easily enhance any outdoor environment to exude an air of coolness. However, the use of a misting system is no longer limited to just cooling a home patio or business setting. It is now being used for several different applications, including livestock cooling, humidity and dust control, food preservation and more.
Being an owner of a restaurant, bar with outdoor access, open-air shopping mall or any other commercial business with an outdoor element, you are obliged to make your establishment a desirable place to visit, no matter what the weather conditions are. You want your business to be a “must go to” place where people want to visit all the time.
Though summer is the perfect time for outdoor activities and events, if your place is too hot, customers will not want to visit. People won’t enjoy eating or dining in a hot place or buy the idea of shopping in a hot arcade or shopping mall. Having to face the challenges to really maintain the interest and attraction of your customers, you have to come up with a solution or a way to solve this problem.
In the United States, Southwest-Arizona and part of Louisiana are considered the hottest region in the country. However, during summer, almost all of the places in the U.S. experience high temperatures. Some environmentalists would say that the intense heat is due to the manifestation of global warming. However, some critics would say that the rise in summer temperature can also be considered a natural phenomenon. Whatever would be your reason, everyone agrees that it seems to be getting hotter in certain parts of the world. Finding ways to keep cool during these hot temperatures is essential if one is to enjoy or even tolerate these scorching days.
We are all beginning to get concerned about the environment. We are surrounded by so many concerns these days about the depletion of natural resources and pollution. We are all looking for solutions to these problems that we are facing. Use of renewable resources is being promoted now. Some measures like composting, recycling, mulching, rain water harvesting and so on are being promoted. Among such practices is one of outdoor misting. You must have seen outdoor misting at least once, somewhere. Outdoor misting is the most energy efficient way to cool large spaces like outdoors or warehouses. They use very little water and only a fraction of the energy used by other cooling methods. Mist cooling is achieved by the heat exchange experienced when water is turned into a gas (evaporation). A high pressure misting system can convert 1 gallon of water into 6000 to 8000 BTU’s of cooling thus dropping the air temperature by up to 35 degrees, depending on the dry bulb / wet bulb differential. This is very significant cooling especially with global warming rising and the temperature reaching new heights!
Summer time is a difficult time for quite a few people. For some, it is just downright annoying. The summer months of May and June with the peak heat and humid months of July, August and September (of course, I’m talking about the people in the Northern Hemisphere here) can be quite a task to get through if you do not possess the proper equipment to keep you cool. In some really hot countries which are located nearer to the equator than the rest, the heat can really get to you. It can interfere with your work or your studies, killing your concentration and may even have drastic impacts, once in a while, like heat strokes or worse.

What happens to mist when you run it in sub zero temperatures? Mist Art. Acclaimed environmental artist, Matthew Geller, wanted to see. The results were spectacular and blew us away. Matthew’s sculpture, Anticipator, is currently being exhibited at the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme, CT. Go see it and let us know what you think.

Cloudburst’s exclusive misting systems dealer in Mexico, LC Sustensa, has installed the first phase of a cooling solution to 17 of the 195 stations of the Mexico City Subway System (Sistema de Transporte Colectivo (STC) Metro).
Yes, the summer heat is coming and soon it will be time to turn on your water misting fans and misting systems. It is always a good idea to get your outdoor mist cooling systems ready before the heat arrives. Here are a few simple things you can do to make sure your system is ready.
• Check the oil level in your pump. Add oil if necessary and change it if it is time. Most Cloudburst® high pressure misting pumps only need to have the oil changed every 500 hours of use. (check your owner’s manual for oil type and changing intervals of your pump)
As mentioned before in an article about our Misting Fan Hubs on November 28th 2011, Cloudburst® Misting Systems manufactures and licenses a patented Water Misting Fan Hub to Continental Electric for use on the Windchill® Water Misting Fans. CE has announced that they have just received large orders for a new version of the Windchill® Water Misting Fans, from 2 large mail order companies. This new Water Misting Fan will have many new features but will still use the proven effectiveness of Cloudburst® Misting Systems, Misting Fan Hub.
