How do You Install a Fogging System like a Pro?
You can build a fogging system by enforcing the flow of water via a high pressure pump unit that is joined to a specialized fog nozzles. This forms micro fine water particles that will evaporate away with time. It is also helpful in filtering the incoming water flow as even the tiny water particles can clog the micro fog nozzle heads.
Sometimes, the ambient temperature can plummet up to 35 degrees when you use an outdoor mist cooling system. It must be noted that a fog system will need pressures of at least 1000 psi or 70 bar to offer the 3 to 5 micron sized droplets, normally needed to gain the desired outcome. Fogging systems are famous and have been in use for many years as a cost effective way of environmental control.
Fogging systems also have several other applications like outdoor cooling, dust and odor control, humidification, special effects and livestock cooling. Speaking of which, fog cooling systems were firstly used in the 1950s by the livestock industry. Then, its application was widespread to the restaurants and then much later, homeowners began to use it. After that, the popularity of the water fogging system went thriving.
- When it comes to using the fogging system for residential and restaurant patio cooling, the initial setup of a fog system needs placing the high pressure misting pump around a water source and attaching a fog line around the perimeter of the very area to be cooled down. When the fog evaporates, the temperature of the surrounding area also plummets. The fog system lines should always be placed at a suitable height around 8 to 10 ft. in order to accomplish total evaporation. When it is properly designed and installed, the outcome you gain can be quite effective.
- When the water from the nozzle evaporates, the external temperature feels like air conditioning. You can also add cooling fans if extra circulation is needed. Fog cooling systems also need flash evaporation to offer exquisite cooling and add humidification or dust suppression in multiple applications.
- The perfect conditions to gain the best of these systems is when the temperatures rise between 29 degrees C to 46 degrees C with minimal humidity levels.
- When you install a fog system properly, it shouldn’t wet the floors or external surfaces. In workshops, proper ventilation is needed or else the humidity levels will raise and evaporation will not take place.
