Misters have a wide range of variants to choose from. Whether you‘re running a business with an outdoor theme, or just want to bask in the sunlight without worrying about the heat, there’s an available mister for you. From personal variants to complete misting systems, a spectrum of this fun cooling system can be installed in your premises.
However, do you know the two main types of this item? Stay with us in this article and we’ll take you through the two types – the high pressure and the low pressure variant.
The most efficient form is the High Pressure Mister. This type of misters cover a wide range of area and is perfect for almost all types of establishments – houses, restaurants, bars, pools, even greenhouses.
Since it has high pressure, this kind can drop temperatures over 35 degrees Fahrenheit and can be amplified by misting fans to spread the cooling effect to wider areas. The high pressure also forms a finer jet of mist, speeding up the evaporation of the liquid. The instantaneous evaporation yielded from the high pressure variants gives it an edge of low pressure variants, since it produces a cooler effect. The flash evaporation
capabilities of the high pressure variant can also produce fogging effects in the surroundings.
This type is mostly used in commercial areas, commonly found in restaurants and resorts. This is due to the face that high pressure types are more costly, as compare to low pressure variants. High quality material is needed to ensure the capability of the hose and nozzle to withstand the high pressure brought about by the misting pump. Tubing is also made of stainless steel to make sure that the material does not break down due to the high pressure. High pressure variants usually contain multiple nozzles for wider coverage. Multiple nozzles also contribute largely to the cooling capabilities of the high pressure system.
Low pressure types, on the other hand, have this reputation of spewing large water droplets that can get you wet. Of course, this is entirely false, since misters have to pass a standard to be categorized as such, and not as a bathroom shower. However, the main difference of low pressure types with high pressure ones is indeed the authorization of the water droplets. Indeed, low pressure variants produce relatively bigger droplets. But their size is enough to evaporate quickly and promote cooling in the area. The moisture produced by low pressure misters is also very refreshing as it hits one’s skin on a warm summer day. Due to the lower pressure, you wouldn’t expect a fogging effect from this variant of mister.
Low pressure variants are perfect for households that run tight on the budget. It’s perfect for personal use and backyard installations – a nice way to cool down during a nice afternoon with friends. The absence of a high pressure misting pump can be attributed to its cheaper price. It can be installed using a typical household water system, and does not need additional force to create mist. The material used for the tubing is nylon. The misting process mostly happens in the nozzle installed in the hose. You can also opt for the multiple nozzle option to cool down the area faster.
The low pressure mister is also cost effective for households and establishments who don’t regularly have to use a misting system. It also does not consume a lot of water, as compared to the high pressure variants.
Now that you know the two basic types of misters, which one should you opt for? Always consider your lifestyle and budget when choosing to buy a mister.
