Model S-Fog - High Pressure Fog
How the high pressure fog operates: Our S-FOG system’s working pressure is between 70 and 120 bar. This enormous pressure creates, in combination with special stainless steel nozzles that produce 2-5 micron droplets, the very finest fog. The most important advantage is that the minute droplets evaporate very quickly without falling onto the crops.
Natural Climate (Adiabatic cooling)
In addition to improving the atmospheric humidity, our fog system also cools the room temperature. A 4 to 7°C reduction in the temperature is possible with this system. The physical principle behind this is adiabatic cooling. It introduces spray into the greenhouse, which evaporates in the warm atmosphere. The evaporation of water requires energy, This energy atomizes the spray which evaporates into the atmosphere. In this way, the temperature in the greenhouse will decrease substantially.
Quality improvements and saving costs
Stolze's high pressure fog systems are usually installed to regulate the atmospheric humidity in horticultural greenhouses. But the high pressure fog system also ensures that the room temperature is reduced. Because of this, a fog system not only benefits the quality and the production of your crops, but it also provides savings on your energy costs. Moreover, it also improves the amount of light in many greenhouses because, for example, it is not necessary to chalk the roof.
High pressure fog systems can be integrated into existing water irrigation units or can be combined witch osmosis and UV systems. Our fog systems can work independently or can be controlled by the climate control computers which already exist.
A list of the most important advantages:
- Realization of an optimum atmospheric humidity
- Reduction of the room temperature
- Creation of a uniform climate
- Reduction of energy costs
