SMARTMIST™
has worked hard to engineer affordable solutions to the many problems inherent with air cooled systems, whether it is the high energy costs of air-cooled Air Conditioners, the inability of dry cooling towers to meet or keep up with cooling demand, or the lower production from gas turbines due to heat expansion. We know our pre-cooling mist systems work and want you to feel as comfortable as we do about it. Below are the real results of companies currently enjoying both the savings and better performance delivered by our SMARTMIST pre-cooling mist systems, and our "Better Performance / Energy Savings Guarantee".

AC/Refrigeration

 

Company: International Rubber Products www.irpi.com (Installed June, 2007)

Type of business: Light Industrial

The Problem:  Manufacturing equipment generated a lot of heat adding to the high cooling cost for this 40,000 sq/ft manufacturing facility. Water quality: Hard

The Solution: Install a SMARTMIST™ AC misting system on 4 large AC units - using Smart Release Technology to treat the water.

The Results: The facilities summer electricity bills (July through October) averaged $22,608/mo. prior to the installation of their SMARTMIST system. After the SMARTMIST system was installed, the monthly electricity cost dropped to $18,659 - an average savings of $3,949 per month. According to the client, significant savings was sustained through the subsequent years and he has realized a 17% reduction in overall electricity costs, equaling over a 30% reduction in AC electric costs and his coils are as clean if not cleaner then before the installation.

Payback: 3 months!

 


 

Company: Arco AM/PM gas station - Moreno Valley, CA (Installed January, 2009)

Type of business: Mini Mart / Gas Station (part of the BP group)

The Problem:  Full glass front, many walk-in coolers that are opened several times per hour, and constant in/out traffic created large cooling costs in the summer months. Water quality: Extremely Hard

 

The Solution: Install a SMARTMIST™ AC precooling mist system system on two 10 ton AC units and 2 smaller refrigeration units - using Smart Release Technology to treat the water.

The Results: Reduced the 2009 electric costs by an average of about $400/mo as compared to 2008. Coils are as clean if not cleaner then before the installation (one end of year cleaning required)

Payback: 11 months!

 


 

ompany: Soriana - City Club Store www1.soriana.com (initial pilot install April, 2008)

Type of Business: Warehouse store "equivalent to a Sam's Club

The Problem:  Several aisles of walk-in coolers and freezers that are opened several times per day. This created large cooling costs as well as the additional problem of keeping them at required temperature during the hottest part of the day. Water quality:Hard

The Solution: Install a SMARTMIST "Pilot Test" system on one 8 fan refrigeration nit - using Smart Release Technology to treat the water.

The Results: Prior to installation, this one refrigeration unit consumed 8,802 kWh per week. When the SMARTMIST system was activated, consumption dropped to 6,523 kWh per week - more than 25% savings. Based on the local rate of $0.15 per kWh, the client is realizing a NET savings of $1,435 per month for one unit, giving this unit an ROI of less then 5 months. Based on this test, we have now been approved to start installation on several other units for Soriana, nation wide.

Estimated Payback: 5 months!

 

An independent study done by the Tulane University in 2005 concluded that:

"The implication from these results is that by using a smartmist system, even in a climate that endures high humidity, the heat transfer from the refrigerant to the air is substantially increased" (by as much as 170%)

“This effect implies that cooler air will be able to circulate throughout a building and this will decrease the time the condenser unit runs, thus reducing electricity cost to the user." Download the complete study

*This study was done on the first product Cloudburst made specifically for AC mist pre-cooling.


 

Dry Cooling Towers & Turbines

 

Company: Enterprise Products Houston www.epplp.com/

Type of business: Propane Transfer

The Problem:  Enterprise Products owns and operates boat loading facilities in Houston, Texas for oil, natural gas and propane.  Historically, propane had been loaded onto tankers during the winter to minimize heat expansion and facilitate faster transfer from land to ships. World demand has grown and changed; now ships must be loaded in the summer months too.  Because the dry cooling tower could not keep the propane cool enough during the hot summer days, the transfer rates would stop or be so slow that tankers would start lining up in the harbor.

The Solution: Install a 1400 nozzle SMARTMIST™ pre-cooling HP mist system system under the dry cooling tower to lower temperatures. The cooling capacity was improved by approximately 30% so that even on the hottest days, the propane transfer rates were as good as the middle of winter.

Payback: 1 Day!

 


 

Company: AHMSA Steel www.ahmsa.com

Type of Business: Steel Production (5th largest in the world)

The Problem: During the summer months, cooling towers could not keep up with material cooling needs during the steel manufacturing process, so the entire process was slowed up to 30%, costing millions of dollars of production.

The Solution: Install 3 - 900 nozzle SMARTMIST™ pre-cooling misting systems under the dry cooling towers to lower temperatures.

The Results: Cooled the intake air as much as 38 degrees F. Heat transfer rates went up so significantly, that even on the hottest days, steel production was kept at maximum capacity.

Payback: 1 1/2 shifts!

 


 

Company: AHMSA Steel www.ahmsa.com

Type of Business: Steel Production (5th largest in the world)

The Problem: The entire plant is powered by an internal gas turbine. The cost to generate the electricity is expensive, especially during the summer heat when the efficiency was reduced by up to 30%.

The Solution: Install a 300 nozzle SMARTMIST™ pre-cooling misting system at the air intake & vent.

The Result: This cooled the intake air by up to 36 degrees F., thus condensing it so that the turbines output was boosted back to 100% This related to a significant cost reduction and better life expectancy of the turbine.

Payback: 1 month!

 


 

Company: Standard Oil of Indiana (Refining Operation) - BP AMOCO

Type of Business: Diesel Fuel Transfer

The Problem: In the summer months, the cooling towers used to cool diesel fuel were ineffective at lowering fuel temperatures enough to allow water to separate from the fuel and be removed.

The Solution: Install a 180 nozzle SMARTMIST™ pre-cooling mist system under the dry cooling tower to lower temperatures.

The Results: Heat transfer rates went up so significantly, that diesel could be transferred at full speed and water could be removed, even during the peak heat of the summer.

Payback: 2 weeks!
