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.
