Mist Cooling & Football

September 19th, 2009 16 comments

Fall is fast approaching which means for some of us cooler weather is right around the corner or already here and for others it means that we still have 1 to 2 months of warm to HOT weather, but for all of us it means – IT IS FOOTBALL SEASON!   And Football season means: NFL, College & High School practice & games, plus TAILGATING.

Why do we bring this up now?  Because many of you football fans, players & coaches will be looking for a way to stay cool during the hot part of your season and Mist Specialties has a variety of ways to accomplish this.  One of the most effective ways is with the use of a Portable or Sideline Misting Fan System.  These work by combining a High Pressure or Mid Pressure pump & water tank with a misting fan that can be plugged in almost anywhere including a 12 volt inverter or generator, allowing you to use them in very remote locations.  There are also specific Sideline Misting Kits that can run several fans at a time.

Why a Misting Fan?  Because they are “hands down” the most effective way to cool an outdoor area.  In fact, when you combine mist with the high velocity air movement of a fan you can expect up to a 30 degree decrease in temperature.  This will not only keep you more comfortable but it can also keep you from having a very bad day because of heat exhaustion.

So whether you want to stay cool while enjoying your favorite drink & food in the parking lot before the “Big Game” or want to keep your players cool & healthy during practice or a game, there are effective mist cooling systems available to help you.

Please take a moment to look through our website for a complete line of Misting Fans & Mist Systems that can help you stay cool and avoid the heat stress that affects several hundred fans & players each year.   For specific discounts and more information on Mist Systems related to this article, please check out: Sideline Misting Fans, Portable Fans, Portable Fans w/tanks & Misting Fan Kits

Good luck to your favorite teams & Enjoy a fun and safe season!

Mist Cooling Goes “GREEN”

September 4th, 2009 5 comments

The Cool-N-Save® Commercial AC pre-cooler is an amazing new system that has taken the known benefit of evaporative AC pre-cooling (more efficient cooling) and combined it with “state of the art” technology to create the first economical & effective AC Pre-Cooling system that DOES NOT SCALE or interfere with airflow.

It uses a low flow / high pressure mist that is activated only when the AC unit turns on. When the ultra-fine mist is released into the air, it evaporates almost instantly. This flash evaporation literally sucks heat out of the air, as the water absorbs the energy it needs to evaporate.

The result of this immediate evaporation is a drop in ambient temperature of as much as 30 degrees Fahrenheit surrounding the condenser. This allows the coils to transfer heat much more effectively which in return lowers the amperage draw, output temperature, cycle time & head pressure, all adding up to a 30% or more reduction in energy use. Plus, because it allows the unit to run more efficiently it can greatly extend the life of the condenser too.

The Cool-N-Save® Commercial system consists of 3 main components:
Pump & Control System:
At the heart of our system is our patent pending switching system and proprietary “Smart Pump” that deliver the right amount of water and pressure to each condenser as needed. This keeps the water use down while maximizing the pre-cooling effect for each unit. The “Smart Pump” may be installed near the condensers or several 100 feet away with a lift capability of over 30 feet

Misting Arms & Nozzles:
Our exclusive misting arms are designed to easily attach to the outside of most AC units & may be adjusted for maximum effectiveness. Each nozzle is positioned & calibrated to produce the best mist pattern for optimal performance at the lowest flow possible.
Each system uses as little as 4.5 GPH (only while condenser is in use). In many cases this is less water then the water used to create the extra electricity wasted without the system

Water Treatment Filter:
To combat the possibility of scaling, our design team enlisted the help of some of the nation’s foremost experts in water treatment technology to develop a proprietary water treatment filter using a proven scale elimination additive. This bio-friendly additive polyacrylate) combines with the scale forming molecules of the calcium & other minerals in hard water and distorts their geometry, keeping them from attaching to one another thus preventing the formation of scale.
