If you live in most states in Australia you've probably seen misting systems at a hotels, restaurants or cafes, and, there's every chance that they were an Ozmist Misting System.
Misting systems are getting more and more popular every summer, especially as our summers seem to be getting warmer and warmer every year.
Ozmist Misting Systems are famous for their ultra fine mist droplets that evaporate before wetting people or surfaces. We achieve this by pressurising tap water to 1,000 PSI and forcing then force the water through a tiny nozzle that shatters the stream and creates millions of ultra fine droplets that are just 1/10th the thickness of a human hair. As the droplets begin their fall they absorb the latent heat in the air and that's how you get the cooling effect - up to 10° in most systems.
Installing an Ozmist misting system will provide genuine cooling for your family and guests during our long hot summers and make the area more usable. Misting systems are also very effective at keeping flying insects at bay.
With an Ozmist Misting System you will be able to spend more time enjoying your alfresco area. Nothing worse than on a hot day being stuck inside and not being able to enjoy it because of the heat.
Mist Lines or Mist Fans?
Ozmist supplies two different systems for Outdoor Cooling. The most commonly requested system is a Static Mist Line System, where lengths of stainless steel tube are run either under covered areas or around the perimeter of the building to create a curtain of mist.
Ozmist Misting Fans add extra cooling through the use of high velocity wall mounted fans with stainless steel misting rings fitted to the face. The air stream from our KTW2460 will throw cool refreshing air over 10 meters. Both systems need to be at 2.7 meters from the ground to allow for evaporation to take place.
Like the look of one and the effectiveness of the other - have both. They can be interconnected and run off the same pump and you get the best of both worlds!
Ozmist have spent years developing our systems to be installed by virtually anyone. If you can follow instructions and can use a cordless drill and basic hand tools you'll be able to install your Ozmist system.
Ozmist PatioMist cooling fans are available in either a Portable or Wall Mounted models.
These fans are the latest innovation in misting system technology and do not need a high pressure pump module to create the very fine mist required for fast and efficient cooling. Instead they use water pumped from the attached storage tank on to a stainless steel disc that spins at very high speeds.
The result is millions of very fine droplets that are blown away from the fan to create a cool refreshing breeze. Droplets that are too big for evaporation simply run back into the tank where water is stored and reused.
The PatioMist Portable and Wall Mount models both feature a 650mm diameter fan, capable of throwing cool air over 9 meters.
** Cheaper models on offer at a large retailers have a much smaller 500mm fan that will struggle on hot days.
Instantly reduce summer temperature by up to 12 degrees!
Reduces flies and other flying insects!
Both fans are 3 speed and oscillate from side to side.
Both variants of the 650mm PatioMist unit (wall mounted and portable) will throw cool refreshing air over 9 meters!
Water droplets too large to be effectively evaporated are taken back to the tank for re-use.
They both deter flies and insects either with or with out the misting system on.
Both units have adjustable mist control to suit everyone.
The wall mount mist fan uses the same technology as the portable pedestal unit.
A small water tank sits under the fan and collects the water unable to be evaporated run back into this tank.
The wall mounted version requires a constant water connection via the included hose.
A 70 litre plastic water tank is fixed to the sturdy steel frame and contains enough for around 14 hours of operation.
The lid of the tank lifts to allow for filling from a garden hose. The water flow to the centrifugal spinning disc is also adjustable—on hot days a higher flow may be required while on cooler days a lower flow may be desirable.
The Pedestal (Portable) fan unit has castors fitted to a sturdy steel frame making it stable and easy to move.
Simply connect to a power supply and wheel around the yard or workshop. Assembly is required but is a relatively simple process. Assembly instructions are included for all systems.
