Do you know the difference between low pressure and high pressure misting systems? If not, it’s time to get educated! These two types of system are often used for different applications. You might be wondering which one is best for your needs. A low-pressure misting system delivers a coarse mist particles at low velocity with high volume output while a high-pressure system delivers water droplets or fog in a large quantity at high velocity. Each has their advantages and disadvantages so let’s take a look at them side by side:
lets hav the breif explanation on these systems:
Low pressure :
A low-pressure mist system operates on your standard city water pressure, 40 psi to 60 psi. In other words, this system does not require an expensive misting pump to function. It can be easily hooked to your water faucet or directly to a garden hose.
Generally, a low-pressure misting system has the ability to cool outdoor temperature up to 6 degrees Celsius . This system is best suited for homeowners with a low budget. Although the quality of mist is not as fine and residual moisture-free as the other two systems, it does provide you good cooling at an affordable price.
High pressure :
High pressure misting systems utilize specialized pumps that are of 750 psi, 1000 psi, or 1500 psi. All components used in this system are high pressure rated, such as the tubing, nozzles, and the misting pump. This helps the system work efficiently without any mishaps like cracks in the tubing due to high pressure.
By installing a high-pressure mist system, you can enjoy ultra-fine quality mist without any residual moisture. The droplets released through high-pressure system misting nozzles are very tiny and fog-like. They are instantly evaporated by the sun’s heat, thus creating a large bubble of cool air in a few seconds.
|low-pressure misting system||high-pressure misting system|
|Coarse spray particles||Fine Spray Particles|
|Wets the floor||Fog Spray particles fly over|
|Reduces temperature by just 2 to 3 C||Reduces temperature by 12 in outdoor area and 8 C in Indoor Areas|
|Best for watering plants||Best for multiple purpose like cooling, odour suppression|
|Bigger particle dust suppression||Micron dust particle dust suppression possible|
There are different types of misting systems which is used, the misting system is selected by the customer for their needs
