The Power of Mist Pre-Cooling


Quick Facts:

  • Cools air up to 40°F
  • Can achieve 100% evaporation
  • Works in humid or dry climates
  • Lower start up and operating cost
  • Allows for fastest ROIs in the industry
  • The most efficient means of pre-cooling

Simply put, the Power of Mist Pre-Cooling comes from the ability of atomized water to evaporate and absorb heat (cool) more efficiently then any other means of evaporative cooling with very little cost or energy use (as much as 80% less then other pre-cooling methods).. More

SMARTMIST™, a leader in the mist cooling industry since 1994, has taken this enormous cooling power and engineered it into specific systems designed to use the least amount of resources while dramatically increasing the cooling efficiency of industrial air cooled systems.

These systems are categorized into 2 main types:

100% Evaporative Air Pre-Cooling: This is where we use high pressure (1000 PSI) pumps, the smallest water atomizing nozzles,and automated controls to achieve 100% inlet air evaporation. We do not get anything wet. These systems are primarily used for pre-cooling larger Dry Cooling Towers & Turbine air intakes.


Evaporative Air & Direct Heat Exchange Pre-Cooling: This is where we use lower pressure (180 PSI) pumps, larger atomizing nozzles and automated controls to achieve a combination of air cooling and direct Heat Exchange water cooling. To achieve this, we cool the surrounding air of the heat exchanger and get the coils slightly damp (with non-scaling, treated water). This gives us the largest efficiency boost for Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Units.


The SMARTMIST™ pre-cooling misting systems save money by:

  • Reducing equipment energy costs by up to 30% (same or even more cooling, with much less energy).
  • Allowing equipment to run more efficiently, thus extending its life.
  • Delaying or eliminating the need for additional cooling equipment.
  • Optimizing turbine performance by condensing inlet air.
  • Keeping heat generating equipment running a peak performance and optimal output..
  • Increasing the cooling capacity of air cooled equipment, allowing it to operate at full capacity even during extreme heat conditions.
