Cooling: when the misting system can lower the temperature
Home - Cooling: when the misting system can lower the temperature
MGFTools misting systems are widely used for cooling people or processes in the industries. This effect is also called adiabatic cooling or evaporative cooling.
Evaporative cooling or adiabatic cooling is the way to reduce air temperature by evaporating water mist.
In fact water evaporation requires energy (think about the energy provided by a fire to evaporate the water inside a pot on a stovetop). During evaporation the same energy is taken from environment in the form of temperature.
As is known the high summer temperatures worsen the performance of refrigerators and chillers up to make it impossible to have adeguate heat exchange. In the worst conditions of the refrigeration systems are stopped due to poor cooling of the refrigerant.
For this reason more and more of business put in place measures aimed at improving the efficiency of air conditioners. Among many solutions one of the most effective is the use of MGF adiabatic coolers that allow, at low cost, to greatly enhance the performance of refrigeration cycles.
Evaporative cooling or adiabatic cooling, is the most well-known use of high-pressure water spray (misting).
The process of evaporation of the water absorbs energy (heat) from the surrounding environment thus reducing the temperature. For example, due to sweating and subsequent evaporation of sweat, you get the removal of heat from the body, and its temperature decreases. The water to evaporate therefore needs heat.
To better understand the process of cooling by evaporation of water in contact with the air, we can think of it as a sponge that is able to absorb, encompass, the water spray in the form of steam.
