General Questions and Expert Answers
In Australia, the misting system industry is a small, specialty business. Many companies dabble in the industry, but few have the resolve, knowledge and dedication to stick around for the long-term. The best method of sourcing a misting expert is to rely on longevity and experience.
CoolMist Systems Australia has been providing high quality systems for residential, commercial and industrial applications since 2005. Aligned with European manufacturers who use only the highest quality components in the manufacturing of our products, we bring over 30 years combined industry experience. There are few competitors that have the level of experience or understanding that is provided with every system designed and sold by CoolMist Systems Australia.
The principle behind effective dust suppression is to deliver water droplets similar in size to that of the fugitive dust particle. Water droplets that are too large deflect the dust particle leaving the dust air-borne.
CoolMist® high-pressure systems operate at 1000 psi to maintain a strong steady pressure which is required to produce atomised water droplets sized 5 -10 microns. Billions of micro-fine water droplets similar in size to the dust particles are dispersed to engulf the dust cloud. These then combine with the minute dust particles and together they fall to the ground leaving the air dust free.
Not all misting systems are the same and rarely does a one size fits all approach suit every application. Your system should be designed to your specific environment. This includes the type of pump needed, water treatment, the distribution system, line or fans, and the nozzles. These key factors when combined properly work together to provide you with a system that does the job that is right for you.
One of the most important components of a misting system is the misting pump used to drive the system. Don't be misled in thinking that all mist system pumps are the same. CoolMist Systems Australia has a range of high-pressure misting and fog system pumps that consist of high quality components and innovative control options to produce the desired misting effect for your project. When deciding on which high-pressure pump system is best for you, consider the size of the area, the mist effect you wish to achieve and the time it is required to be in use.
CoolMist Systems Australia design systems that are tailored to your specific environment. With over 30 years combined industry experience in high-pressure misting systems we'll work with you to provide an effective and efficient system that you can rely on.

Misting systems use "flash evaporation" to provide excellent cooling, humidification or dust suppression for domestic, commercial and industrial applications. Equipment is custom designed to suit each individual application.
The system comprises of a high-pressure pump module, distribution tubing, and misting lines constructed of stainless or polyamide tubing, or stainless steel rings fitted to the front of industrial fans.
Normal mains water is pressurized to 1000 psi and then forced through specially designed nozzles. This results in water being atomised into millions of water droplets. The droplets flash evaporate cooling the air or absorb the dust cleaning the air.
Inexpensive misting systems are built for price and price only. They were not built to last long and are made from the cheapest foreign components.
We are highly selective of our suppliers for the components that make up our misting systems. All components are manufactured to the highest industry standards using high quality materials., and therefore as the saying goes,"You get what you paid for".
This means CoolMist® misting systems will last a long time and provide you with the highest quality misting solution possible.
High pressure misting systems offer significant advantages over mid and low pressure systems. Although they are higher priced the benefits that they offer outweigh the costs.
Advantages include water droplets that are of a smaller size resulting in better evaporation of water and therefore more effective cooling of the environment. It also results in more effective dust suppression. High pressure systems are also more efficient in larger areas as the water pressure throughout the whole system will be consistent resulting in the benefits being applied throughout the whole area.
A low pressure system requires nozzles with larger outlets resulting in larger water droplets. This results in less effective cooling of the environment, a lower level of dust suppression as well as potential water residue over the affected areas.
Misting systems and fog systems are used interchangeably when talking about a high-pressure system. Simply put, these two terms describe the same type of high-pressure misting system that is used to create a fog-like effect.
Depending on the solution you require our high-pressure misting systems are used throughout Australia to regulate the environment by cooling the temperature, cleaning the air of air-borne dust, providing precise humidification and neutralising offensive odours.

The old adage "you get what you pay for" is very appropriate when considering a high-pressure mist system. Of course, all mist systems have a nice cooling effect in areas under heat duress, i.e. the temperature is reduced to some degree. However, high-pressure mist systems offer significant advantages over mid and low pressure systems.
One of the main advantages of high-pressure mist is that it does not lose pressure over long line runs or with lines of many nozzles.The same spray pattern is present at the beginning and the end of the line. Low and mid systems struggle and lose uniform spray when there are more than 25 nozzles or when there is use of 90 degree bends in the water line.
CoolMist Systems will design the system that will give you the best outcome for your cooling project.
YES! Absolutely! In higher humidity areas like Queensland, North Western Australia and the Northern Territory we recommend high-pressure mist systems for the best cooling. You can expect an 8-10 degree drop in temperature using mist lines, and up to a 15 degree drop when using mist fans. Our highest measured temperature decrease to date is 17 degrees Celsius in a fruit packing shed located in Carnarvon, WA where packers were working in an extreme environment.
