3 Ways You Can Use A Misting system
The misting cannon has a spray system with a wide array of sizes and components such as portable cart units, wall mount units, and a self-contained trailer with a pump, tank, and generator. All canons vary in terms of voltage capacity, chemical injectors, frequency drives, and oscillations. Different designs are made to accomplish various tasks but this post will focus on three functions namely dust suppression, green housing, and theft deterrent.
Dust and odor suppression
The fog cannon comes with a technology which can effectively be used in dust and odor management. It is designed to the highest industry standards that can meet the needs of different environments. Inside the system is an air column which carries the fog and leaves the cannon at extremely high speed. In a dusty area like a mining or construction site, the cannon can suppress the existing dust up to 95%. There are smaller units which can be used in high dust concentration areas like stockpile discharging, stockpile reclamation, truck loading and offloading, dumpsites, and when discharging into ships. In such places, the fog is directed at the source point of dust and at a high speed; it suppresses the dust particles before they disperse into the surroundings. The bigger units of the cannon are mainly used in general dust management where the entire area is fogged. They can also be applied in high volume dust conditions like blasting. Their long throw distance plays a huge role in these circumstances. One advantage of using fog cannons to manage dust is that less water is used.
Cooling and humidifying greenhouses
The misting system can also be used to maintain proper climates in a greenhouse. Regardless of the size of a greenhouse, it provides enormous benefits. A misting system facilitates the right temperatures and humidity level under controlled ventilation. During the dry season, the fog evaporates quickly to bring down the greenhouse temperature i.e. it raises the relative humidity of the place. When the weather gets cold, the misting cannon will maintain the appropriate humidity and protects dehydration of the plants inside which normally induced by the heating systems introduces the greenhouse. The kind of ambiance produces by the misting system is ideal for even the most delicate plants and seedlings which cannot be sprayed through typical methods. Some of the biggest challenges farmers encounter includes high temperature and low humidity. If relative humidity goes below 30%, the growth of plants may be terminated and most farmers end up closing their greenhouses if they don’t have alternative means. Thanks to the misting system, a farmer can grow crops in the greenhouse year-round. One huge benefit of the fog system greenhouse is low energy cost when compared to other climate control solutions.
The fog cannon can be used in homes and businesses for security purposes. The house alarm will act as a trigger and then the house is filled with dense fog. This would discourage the activities of burglars because they wouldn’t see clearly. This idea is very new and it is gaining awareness. The technique is synonymous with having a guard who stays alert all the time. As a matter of fact, it is the only legal way you can fight physically with burglars and scare them away. The system is mounted on a wall and it can be mistaken for a heat pump or air conditioning system. It may be concealed to further enhance the safety. Most commercial misting systems are hidden in ceilings and so the burglars wouldn’t have an idea of what might happen. But it is harmless to pets, furniture, electronics, and people.
