What’s the Difference Between a High-Pressure Misting System and a Fog System?
As the market for high-pressure misting systems continues to grow in order to support the ever-increasing need for environment control by both business and homeowners, many different types of systems are entering the marketplace. To be able to decide which system is right for your home or business, it’s your job as a consumer to understand what makes these systems different.
This understanding begins first and foremost with an understanding of the terminology used to describe the make-up of these systems. For instance, to the untrained ear, the terms misting system and fog system may sound like two completely different things. When in reality, there actually isn’t any difference at all.
These two terms are often used by misting system experts interchangeably when talking about a high-pressure system. Both terms refer to the same type of high-pressure misting system used to create a fog-like effect that works to cool the temperature of its surrounding environment.
Are All High-Pressure Misting Systems the Same?
Some misting system companies believe that the difference lies in the type of pressure provided by the system, which effects the size of droplets introduced into the air. However, this is not the difference between a misting system or a fog system. Rather, it’s a difference between a high-pressure misting system and a low-pressure misting system.
Due to the pressure created by the misting system pump, a high-pressure misting system is able to create micro-droplets of water that are introduced into the air. These micro-droplets are so small that they give the appearance of fog and are easily evaporated into the surrounding air to keep the area cool and dry all at once.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that all systems are the same. Start here to fully understand the process that goes in to designing a misting system that is right for you and your cooling needs.
