If Fog Is Released In A Greenhouse And No One Is Around... A recent installation of our IBEX pump in one of CU Boulder’s Greenhouses really brought home to us our customers’ appreciation of just how quiet MicroCool fog pumps are compared to others available. “The new fog system is fantastic!!!  Much less noise…

Greenhouses: Transforming Heat Energy Into Evaporative Cooling

How Does Evaporative Cooling Work in a Cannabis Greenhouse Environment? Air inside the greenhouse heats up due to sunlight exposure. Fog is dispersed evenly throughout the house to take advantage of this energy in the form of ambient heat. The energy is used to transform atomized fog into another state (vapor) ultimately resulting in…

Cooling Cannabis Greenhouses: Wet Wall ‘Pad and Fan’ v. High-Pressure Fog

Cooling Cannabis Greenhouses
Fog: More Consistent Evaporative Cooling & Humidity For Greenhouses Than a 'Wet Wall' The large scale of today's commercial cannabis greenhouses demands consistent cooling. While a “wet wall” is a more traditional method of cooling a short green house, it isn’t enough when trying to maintain adequate growing temperatures consistent throughout the entire length of…

Eco-Friendly Dust & Odor Control For MRFs, Recycling & Waste Transfer Stations

Odor Control MRFs
How Fog Minimizes Dust & Odor MicroCool’s solution for waste handling facilities minimizes dust and odor by releasing a 10-micron atomized water fog which tackles any fugitive dust keeping it on the facility floor rather than traveling and moving in the air. Customized design for each system accounts for each facility’s specific and unique…

Condenser Coil Cooling: Increase Cooling Power

Refrigerator Condensor Equipment on Roof
Mike Lemche, President of MicroCool, writes in Process Cooling magazine about the ability of evaporative fog to increase the cooling power of condenser coil cooling systems. This is especially relevant for aging equipment, high output systems like data centers, continuous use systems like cold stores. Spring is a great time for businesses and those…

Customer Story: MicroCool Fog System at a Propagation Greenhouse

Read the inspiration behind installing a MicroCool fog humidification system at a propagation greenhouse as told by Roger McGaughey, Head Grower, Pioneer Gardens. Keeping the environment just right in terms of temperature and moisture for cuttings is crucial. Not only does the humidity level need to be consistent, but the cuttings and soil or…

Influence of Environment—Wine Evaporation From Barrels

Wine Barrel Storage
  Sterling Vineyards stores barrels of wine in both an air-conditioned, unheated, unhumidified building (chai) and a cave (capacity: 4,000 barrels), in which there are no mechanical means to affect the environment. An experiment was designed to quantify differences in topping wine volume and costs between the chai and the cave. Twenty barrels containing…

Industrial Strength Humidification – 10 Reasons Why

Humidity plays an important role in industrial processes such as printing, textile manufacturing, storage facilities, automotive, and more. These industries rely on a balanced environmental system that maintains an optimal level of humidification. Even in humid climates, humidity levels indoors will vary, which can cause serious problems for the manufacturing process indoors. Adding humidity…

Winter is Coming (And it does year after year)

humidity for avionics repair
How will you handle low humidity this winter season?  Depending where you live, temperatures drop steadily in the fall and especially in the winter. Industrial and commercial operations compensate by turning on the heat and suddenly indoor conditions turn from chilly to warm—but very, very  dry. Now the environment challenge faced is not cold…

What smell? Using high-pressure fog systems for dust and odor control

The industrial workplace is fraught with environmental challenges that impact on quality of product, certainly, but chiefly—and more importantly—workers’ health and safety.  The financial impact is substantial, as industries struggle to ensure the safety of their workforce, meet regulatory demands, and still be profitable. Air quality is chiefly impacted by two environmental factors requiring…
