Evaporative cooling is responsible for the chill you feel when a breeze strikes your skin. The air evaporates the water on your skin, with your body heat providing the energy.

By forcing water, by means of a high pressure pump, through our specially designed misting nozzles, we create a fog of ultra fine water droplets with an average size of less than 10 microns. These tiny water droplets quickly absorb the energy (heat) present in the environment and evaporate, becoming water vapor (gas). The energy (heat) used to change the water to gas is eliminated from the environment, hence the air is cooled.

Relative humidity is the amount of moisture in the air compared to the amount of moisture the air could absorb at the same temperature, is a crucial factor in determining cooling potential. The lower the relative humidity, the more water can be vaporized, and the more heat can be removed. Evaporative Cooling can be used effectively in most geographical locations. This is because when temperatures reach their peak during the day, humidity is normally at its lowest point.

Misting systems are used with enormous advantages to keep the right climate inside greenhouses of any dimension.

Misting systems (or Fog systems) play an important role in the greenhouse climatic control. Misting systems are also used with enormous advantages to keep the right temperature and humidity in the environment, under conditions of forced or natural ventilation. In summertime the quick evaporation of the fog will cool the greenhouse due to the principle of evaporative cooling, meanwhile it humidifies the environment in case of low relative humidity. During the wintertime the system keeps the correct humidity rate preventing the dehydration of the crops caused by heating systems. The environment produced by our system is appropriate for the most delicate crops (ex. the growing of young seedings, the cultivation of tropical plants and in bloom plants) where it is not possible to use traditional spraying methods like standard spraying.

Fog system works on a pressure of 1000 PSI (70 Bar) and it is designed to produce water droplets smaller than 5-10 microns diameter that, for theirs dwarfish size remains suspended in the air for a long time producing the fog effect.

Typically all growers have the problem of low humidity and high temperatures. Serious problems occur when the humidity in the greenhouse environment drops below 30% RH. Plants will suffer and typically slow or halt the growing process. In fact, many greenhouses in arid conditions close down for the summer months until ambient temperatures will reduce to an acceptable level.

LOW COST SYSTEMS

Very low cost of our systems are an important aspect of misting in greenhouse, if compared to other solutions for the climate control. The energy costs are low, simple and fast installations, considering that the systems are supplied in various solutions or D-I-Y Kits, or by the simple solutions of quick couplings. Our systems are designed to operate with very low costs and with a minimum maintenance.

A low humidity level is the main factor that causes natural evaporation of wine with the consequent loss of quality and money, not only for the product time and manpower due to the consequent essential re-filling of wine into barrels.

Moreover wood barrels are subject to dehydration of their external board structure which compromises the quality and efficiency in same time.

A humidity level among 80% and 85% allows to reduce dramatically the “wine loss”.

REDUCED EVAPORATION

Our humidification systems resolve naturally and in economic way, all these problems by regulating the humidity in the wine cellars and keeps its temperature. The water sprayed by the system is atomized by special patented nozzles able to produce thin droplets of a diameter smaller than 5-10 microns, which are immediately absorbed by the air without wetting things and underlying on surfaces.

The results are notable: barrels are kept efficient for longer, preserving the quality of the wood, allowing an excellent production and preventing the natural evaporation of the product. They allow such a costs saving that the system refunds the investment in few months.

HUMIDITY CONTROLLERS

Thanks to special devices like thermostats, hygrostats and remote timers it is possible to keep the desired environment, during the whole day, independently from the external climatic conditions.

BENEFITS

Increased general productivity
Constant humidity levels
It prevents the evaporation of the wine
It helps to keep the right temperature

Our misting system re-establishes to optimal values the humidity level, blocking dehydration process, keeping the freshness of food for longer time

Our misting system periodically emit an ultra light mist of water directly onto the product, usually for 1 to 5 seconds every 10-15 minutes. Due to their teeny dimensions, these small water droplets evaporate without wetting, keeping humidity and coolness in the environment air, reducing dehydration and maintaining product weight and condition.

FRUIT AND VEGETABLES

Fruit and vegetables are largely composed of water. The loss of freshness is mainly due to a quick dehydration of the product, further to the evaporation of the water. Water evaporates, due to a difference between its values contained into the vegetables and in the surrounding air. By means of a misting system, the humidity level in the air re-establishes its optimal values, blocking the dehydration process. Additionally, a misting system, following the adiabatic principle, reduces the temperatures and cools the products displayed at the counters.

FISH PRODUCTS

Fish products are also subjects to the loss of freshness by dehydration, as they are composed of water in the measure higher than 70%. Moreover, the misting system can control the spread of smells in the surrounding areas. Misting system can be easily assembled inside refrigerated displays.

MEAT

Some types of meat and cold cuts are subjects to dehydration, too: our fog systems can restore naturally their suitable special microclimate, to preserve or keep seasoning them. Misting system can be easily assembled inside refrigerated displays.

BENEFITS

Dehydration block

The yarns, until the transformation in tissue, must balance their own moisture and that contained in the surrounding air. A lack of moisture in the air is unpleasantly noticeable. Non air-conditioned factories or with a different humidification system frequently encounter production difficulties during embroidery, weaving and spinning yarns due to breakage and high static electricity levels.

The American Institute of Textile Technology found that wool, by increasing relative humidity from 60 to 70% during storage and processing, shows a 15% increase of its elasticity, which drastically reduces breakage during processing. Adjusting humidity levels with a misting system increases the tensile strength of all natural fibers, removes static electricity improving the workability of the yarns and fibers, controls the suspended residual and improves comfort of work areas.

Water is sprayed under pressure by special patented nozzles capable of generating very fine droplets, of less than 10 microns, which are immediately absorbed by the air without wetting surfaces and objects below. The results are significant: low cost of installation and operation, immediately effective.

HUMIDITY AND YARN PROPERTIES

Water is an important part of yarns weight. About 7% of dry cotton weight is made by water, in a dry synthetic yarn such as Nylon it is 2-3%. The specific weight of wool is made by water up to 18%

STATIC ELECTRICITY

It is well known in the textile industry that the relative humidity, and hence the moisture regain (content) of textile fiber plays a very important role int the reduction of static electricity. Virtually all textile fibers, when completely dry, have very high electrical resistances. However, as the relative humidity increases, the fibers absorb moisture and their electrical resistance decreases with a consequent reduction electrostatic charges generation.

DUST CONTROL

Water is an important part of yarns weight. About 7% of dry cotton weight is made by water, in a dry synthetic yarn such as Nylon it is 2-3%. The specific weight of wool is made by water up to 18%

paper2

Paper production, such as its storage, benefits from environment control.

The paper-based products gain and lose moisture rapidly: for this reason a properly stabilized humidity level is crucial to obtain an excellent steady quality final product. A proper humidity level is very important to the entire printing process. As far as paper, board and other cellulose-based products, the best climate is 20-21°C and a relative humidity moving from 50% to 55%.

HUMIDITY IN WINTER MONTHS

Heating and heat produced by machinery themselves create, during winter months mainly, critical levels of humidity in the environment and consequently serious complications to the manufacturing process.

BENEFITS

Increased output speed
Removal of static electricity
Minimization of scraps and downtime
Reduction in curl and deformations
Improvement in quality folding mechanical process
Improvement in flexibility and dimensional stability
Better ink transfer
Dust reduction

Wood manufacturing, such as its storage, benefits from environment control.

Wood is a hygroscopic material, that absorbes or releases water depending on the relative humidity. In high relative humidity conditions, wood absorbes humidity, until obtaining the same level of the surrounding air. During the 2/3rds of the year, the relative humidity is insufficient for manufacturing and varnishing processes.

WOOD FIBERS MOISTURE LEVELS

Misting systems maintain the proper moisture content inside the wood fibers and efficiently reduce many of the quality problems associated with woodworking, preventing: shrinkage, swelling, deformations, splits and cracks. These situations are caused by different humidity values, varnish diffusion problems, static electricity and dust.

BENEFITS

The dimensions of wood hold steady
Manufacturing process is more efficient
Increase in processing speed
Increase in tool life
Shorter production stops
Dust reduction

Tobacco leaf post-harvest is of great importance due to the product acquiring added value.

There have been many problems during harvesting, curing, storing and packaging of tobacco, thereby reducing final product quality and leading to economic losses.

Tobacco humidifying systems involving our misting units are controlled by electronic humidistats and timers with digital humidity sensors that maintains optimal and homogeneous humidity levels, ensuring better water use, better control of relative humidity and better control in managing cured tobacco leaf moisture content, resulting in improved final product quality and ensuring production efficiency.

There is no need for gas-fired steam generatorors, air compressors or evaporative pad-coolers. Installation requires an electrical power supply and mains water.

The right humidity level, usually between 55% and 75% RH offers as a result a better product quality with minimum downtime and production waste, it also reduces the risk of losses due to manipulation and over-humidification, increasing profits.

HUMIDITY AND TOBACCO PROPERTIES

Water is an important part of tobacco leafs. 55% to 75% relative humidity and 4 to 6 hour working ranges can be easily obtained to ensure leaf humidification reaches 16% moisture content on a wet basis.

HOMOGENEOUS HUMIDITY LEVEL

Traditional humidification systems are not able to provide homogeneous humidity conditions. Many times we discovered that humidification was inadequate, mainly because the barn had only one humidifier providing a limited coverage area, with consequent lack of uniform relative humidity causing high humidification of the product located in its vicinity and having virtually no effect on product located away from the device.

TOBACCO PROCESSING AND HUMIDITY

Typical environment conditions required for most common tobacco processing phases are typically between 20 and 24 °C, 55 and 75% RH. Recommended storage conditions are around 24 °C with 70 to 75% r.H. See also ASHRAE charts about other tobacco processing phases. Tobacco reacts in few hours to changes in humidity and temperature levels thus requiring a reliable humidity control. Tobacco leaves, cut tobacco and paper are hygroscopic materials, they lose their moisture content when the air is too dry, and it rapidly deteriorates with extremely high humidity levels.

BENEFITS

Prevents dehydration of leaves
Leaves do not lose flexibility making processing easier and faster
Leaf spines remain dry and brittle
Leaves don’t crumble reducing loss and saving profits
Reduces paper misfeeds on cigarette manufacturing machines
Low energy systems with easy configuration and maintenace
Uniform humidity levels withot wetting
Simple and reliable RH controllers
Easy and modular installation from small to large warehouses

opera1

Dry air in a theater is uncomfortable for singers, actors and audiences.

A “comfort zone” humidity level must be obtained to prevent dryness of the mouth and other vocal annoyances during live performances. In addition to overall ambient comfort, a theater misting system helps to reduce the dust in the air that can be annoying to actors, dancers and singers.

OVERALL COMFORT

Adequate air humidity makes the environment more confortable and protects the respiratory tract ensuring that actors, singers, dancers and musicians feel good in their workplace.

THE RIGHT HUMIDITY LEVEL

Creating the right environment is a rigorous process. Nozzles must not be visible, and residual water droplets must be avoided. Because every theater is unique, we work with the managers to maintain the best humidity level for the audience, the performers, and the patrons.

EFFECTIVE SOLUTION FOR:

Weak and unclear voices
Dry nose, mouth and eyes, burning irritation, pain
High concentration of airborne dust
Keeping the correct moisture level in wooden floors and furniture
