Our misting system re-establishes to optimal values the humidity level, blocking dehydration process, keeping the freshness of food for longer time.
Our misting system periodically emit an ultra light mist of water directly onto the product, usually for 1 to 5 seconds every 10-15 minutes. Due to their teeny dimensions, these small water droplets evaporate without wetting, keeping humidity and coolness in the environment air, reducing dehydration and maintaining product weight and condition.
FRUIT AND VEGETABLES
Fruit and vegetables are largely composed of water. The loss of freshness is mainly due to a quick dehydration of the product, further to the evaporation of the water. Water evaporates, due to a difference between its values contained into the vegetables and in the surrounding air. By means of a misting system, the humidity level in the air re-establishes its optimal values, blocking the dehydration process. Additionally, a misting system, following the adiabatic principle, reduces the temperatures and cools the products displayed at the counters.
Fish products are also subjects to the loss of freshness by dehydration, as they are composed of water in the measure higher than 70%. Moreover, the misting system can control the spread of smells in the surrounding areas. Misting system can be easily assembled inside refrigerated displays.
Some types of meat and cold cuts are subjects to dehydration, too: our fog systems can restore naturally their suitable special microclimate, to preserve or keep seasoning them. Misting system can be easily assembled inside refrigerated displays.

Misting systems play an important role in the greenhouse climatic control. Misting systems are also used with enormous advantages to keep the right temperature and humidity in the environment, under conditions of forced or natural ventilation. In summertime the quick evaporation of the fog will cool the greenhouse due to the principle of evaporative cooling, meanwhile it humidifies the environment in case of low relative humidity. During the wintertime the system keeps the correct humidity rate preventing the dehydration of the crops caused by heating systems. The environment produced by our system is appropriate for the most delicate crops (ex. the growing of young seedings, the cultivation of tropical plants and in bloom plants) where it is not possible to use traditional spraying methods like standard spraying.
Fog system works on a pressure of 1000 PSI (70 Bar) and it is designed to produce water droplets smaller than 5-10 microns diameter that, for theirs dwarfish size remains suspended in the air for a long time producing the fog effect.
Typically all growers have the problem of low humidity and high temperatures. Serious problems occur when the humidity in the greenhouse environment drops below 30% RH. Plants will suffer and typically slow or halt the growing process. In fact, many greenhouses in arid conditions close down for the summer months until ambient temperatures will reduce to an acceptable level.
LOW COST SYSTEMS
Very low cost of our systems are an important aspect of misting in greenhouse, if compared to other solutions for the climate control. The energy costs are low, simple and fast installations, considering that the systems are supplied in various solutions or D-I-Y Kits, or by the simple solutions of quick couplings. Our systems are designed to operate with very low costs and with a minimum maintenance.

Create a safer and more productive working environment. Cooling employees, equipment and processes can lead to happier employees and big profits. Cooler workers are safer and more productive. Cooler machines last longer and can produce more. Many processes that need cooling can be speeded up using mist cooling.
Air conditioning of large industrial warehouses, including those which need to operate with open doors and windows becomes ideal for cooling large areas or to dissipate high heat emissions from industrial processes (foundries, machinery). Cooling effect can also be combined with humidity control to increase productivity in specific industries.
The yarns, until the transformation in tissue, must balance their own moisture and that contained in the surrounding air. A lack of moisture in the air is unpleasantly noticeable. Non air-conditioned factories or with a different humidification system frequently encounter production difficulties during embroidery, weaving and spinning yarns due to breakage and high static electricity levels.
HUMIDITY AND YARN PROPERTIES
Water is an important part of yarns weight. About 7% of dry cotton weight is made by water, in a dry synthetic yarn such as Nylon it is 2-3%. The specific weight of wool is made by water up to 18%
It is well known in the textile industry that the relative humidity, and hence the moisture regain (content) of textile fiber plays a very important role int the reduction of static electricity. Virtually all textile fibers, when completely dry, have very high electrical resistances. However, as the relative humidity increases, the fibers absorb moisture and their electrical resistance decreases with a consequent reduction electrostatic charges generation.
Paper production, such as its storage, benefits from environment control.
The paper-based products gain and lose moisture rapidly for this reason a properly stabilized humidity level is crucial to obtain an excellent steady quality final product. A proper humidity level is very important to the entire printing process. As far as paper, board and other cellulose-based products, the best climate is 20-21°C and a relative humidity moving from 50% to 55%.
HUMIDITY IN WINTER MONTHS
Heating and heat produced by machinery themselves create, during winter months mainly, critical levels of humidity in the environment and consequently serious complications to the manufacturing process.
Wood manufacturing, such as its storage, benefits from environment control.
Wood is a hygroscopic material, that absorbes or releases water depending on the relative humidity. In high relative humidity conditions, wood absorbes humidity, until obtaining the same level of the surrounding air. During the 2/3rds of the year, the relative humidity is insufficient for manufacturing and varnishing processes.
WOOD FIBERS MOISTURE LEVELS
Misting systems maintain the proper moisture content inside the wood fibers and efficiently reduce many of the quality problems associated with woodworking, preventing: shrinkage, swelling, deformations, splits and cracks. These situations are caused by different humidity values, varnish diffusion problems, static electricity and dust.
Tobacco leaf post-harvest is of great importance due to the product acquiring added value.
Tobacco humidifying systems involving our misting units are controlled by electronic humidistats and timers with digital humidity sensors that maintains optimal and homogeneous humidity levels, ensuring better water use, better control of relative humidity and better control in managing cured tobacco leaf moisture content, resulting in improved final product quality and ensuring production efficiency.
HUMIDITY AND TOBACCO PROPERTIES
Water is an important part of tobacco leafs. 55% to 75% relative humidity and 4 to 6 hour working ranges can be easily obtained to ensure leaf humidification reaches 16% moisture content on a wet basis.
TOBACCO PROCESSING AND HUMIDITY
Typical environment conditions required for most common tobacco processing phases are typically between 20 and 24 °C, 55 and 75% RH. Recommended storage conditions are around 24 °C with 70 to 75% r.H. See also ASHRAE charts about other tobacco processing phases. Tobacco reacts in few hours to changes in humidity and temperature levels thus requiring a reliable humidity control. Tobacco leaves, cut tobacco and paper are hygroscopic materials, they lose their moisture content when the air is too dry, and it rapidly deteriorates with extremely high humidity levels.
Tobacco and paper lose their moisture when the air is too dry. Dry air degrades tobacco properties resulting in shrinkage, brittleness, splitting and weight loss. The right humidity level avoids tobacco to fall out of cigarettes and papers to misfeed on cigarette manufacturing machines.
Theater, Opera and Performing Arts humidification with Misting
Dry air in a theater is uncomfortable for singers, actors and audiences.
A “comfort zone” humidity level must be obtained to prevent dryness of the mouth and other vocal annoyances during live performances. In addition to overall ambient comfort, a theater misting system helps to reduce the dust in the air that can be annoying to actors, dancers and singers.
Adequate air humidity makes the environment more confortable and protects the respiratory tract ensuring that actors, singers, dancers and musicians feel good in their workplace.
