Misting Systems and Their Positive Effects on Plants

Misting works by forcing water through a brass and stainless steel mist nozzle producing a micro-fine mist. The water droplets that create the mist are so small, about one-half the diameter of a strand of hair, that they instantly flash evaporate. This flash evaporation can reduce the surrounding air as much as 35° F in just seconds.

The mist is so fine that it quickly evaporates to create the cooling effect. The idea is to keep the nozzles at an appropriate distance. For patio systems, it is ideal to mount the mist line approximately 8 to 10 feet above the ground for optimum cooling.

It’s suitable for many different applications including orchids, reptiles, amphibians, birds, bonsai, aeroponics, livestock, kennels, insect control, odor control, zoos, veterinary clinics, produce cooling, greenhouses, wildlife parks, humidifying, etc.
