Advancements in Fogger Technology

Fogging technology has come a long way since its creation, and it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Foggers are a type of fogging machine that disperses an aerosol fog (in many cases, water) into the atmosphere. Using a fog system is common for many industries including agricultural and industrial applications, climate controlled warehouses, and even in print shops.

Industrial foggers have been around since the 1940s, but new advancements in fogger technology have made them more efficient. In this blog post, we will discuss some of these advancements as well as their benefits to you!

What is an Industrial Fogger?

An industrial fogger is a fogging system that is beneficial for commercial, agricultural, and industrial applications, as well as in some office spaces. Fogging systems are primarily used to create dry fog, which consists of a fog-like cloud or mist made up of water droplets that have been broken down into microscopic particles by passing through an atomizer. This method makes it possible to create a dry fog.

Foggers come in all shapes and sizes for the versatility of a space. Some fog systems can be placed on the ground or elevated using a stand or a bracket for attachment to ceilings and walls. When using high-pressure pumps, some introduce pressurized air to mix with liquids at a high speed before expelling it out in a continuous stream. This, in turn, creates a dense fog. Other high-pressure fog systems use only water and a pump to pressurize the system forcing the water out at high speeds and creating a very fine fog that evaporates into the air. This is achieved by distributing the fog through a network of fog lines and nozzles to strategically reach different zones. Indoors, they help regulate humidity and temperature due to flash evaporation.

Advancements in Fogging Technology

Fogger technology has been used indoors for many years to help maintain humidity levels in commercial spaces such as print shops and wood shops. The foggers create a humid environment by releasing water vapor into the air which helps reduce the likelihood of items like wood cracking or paintings deteriorating. Advancements with efficient distribution and nozzles have allowed for these foggers to reach a larger space, quicker. New designs and advancements, like a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) have allowed for better human control.

Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) represent a significant advancement in fogging technology, primarily by optimizing the performance and longevity of pump motors. By precisely controlling the motor’s speed and torque, VFDs minimize the wear and tear traditionally associated with fixed-speed operations. In turn, extending the life of the equipment. This enhanced control allows the system to consume only the necessary amount of energy required for its operation. Consequently, the adoption of VFDs not only enhances the reliability and durability of fogging systems but also aligns with energy-saving initiatives, making them an indispensable component in modern fogging technology.

Foggers come in both large and small sizes with a variety of features that cater to different needs. Some foggers are designed for outdoor use, while others are specifically made for indoor spaces. When choosing a fogger, it is important to consider what you will be using it for and how much space you need to cover. Advancements in fogger technology have been mostly driven by the need for volume and precision control.

MicroCool Provides Cutting-Edge Fogging Technology

Foggers come in many varieties, with various purposes. There are fogger kits for indoor use in small spaces, which you would operate manually with a trigger. Other types of fog systems might connect directly to your home’s duct system.

MicroCool offers an independent fog system designed to deliver efficient cooling and humidification solutions. By incorporating Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs), a MicroCool system ensures optimal performance, reducing wear and tear on pump motors, plus significant energy savings. This results in a more reliable, cost-effective, and eco-friendly solution, perfectly suited for a variety of industrial and commercial applications.

Designing and manufacturing Industrial foggers with a specific purpose in mind, such as humidifying the air or controlling temperature spikes in greenhouse, is important. Industrial fogging systems can be used in warehouses, breweries, greenhouses, research labs, and other large indoor spaces where humidity levels need adjustment. If you have the need to maintain precise humidity in a large environment, then an industrial fogger is right for you. Got a question about fogger technology?
