Outdoor Cooling Made Easy

Evaporative cooling is the ‘cooling’ effect or 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 specially designed misting nozzles, we create a fog of ultrafine water droplets with
an average size of less than 10 microns (µ).

These tiny water droplets quickly absorb theenergy (heat) present in the environment and  evaporate, becoming water vapour (gas). The energy (heat) used to exchange the water to gas is eliminated from the environment, hence the surrounding air is cooled. These misting systems can be installed as fixed or as mobile systems, depending on your preference and premises size and layout and can be installed in areas such as gardens, restaurants, swimming pools, bars, beaches, walkways, sports stadiums, any outdoor events, factories, food storage warehouses, wine cellars, supermarkets (fruit, vegetable, meat and fish displays), cheesefarms, greenhouses, dairy farms, poultry farms, pig farms, tobacco industry, textile industry, for chillers and refrigeration units / HVACsystems for airports, hotels, hospitals and more. Systems can also be used to effectively keep away unwelcome guests like mosquitoes, flies, birds and rodents, whilst also suppressing dust, pollen and odours. It is also possibleto locate the cooling effect where needed, without necessarily covering very large areas,  saving on installation costs. The estimatedcost for installation is less than 50% that ofrefrigerated air conditioning and the estimated cost of operation is 25% that of refrigerated air and power consumption is limited to the fan and water pump vs compressors, pumps and blowers of traditional air conditioning. Options to buy outright or rent the mobile fans available.

This cooling effect is a simple, inexpensive and appealing way to lower the surrounding air temperature by between 10 – 12°C outdoorswithout wetting anything. Nothing gets wet and it has no adverse effects on ladies’ hairstyles either! Misting systems from MISTEC helps you treat your guests and yourself to a refreshingoasis, like a cool breeze on a hot day!
