"fogbooster" - Fogging Fans

Recirculating fans with high pressure fogging nozzles can humidify storage areas, shop floors, stables or glasshouses efficient as well as apply adiabatic cooling - this is beyond question.

However .....

While the fans - usually silent axial fans - are moderately priced and not very energy consuming the peripheral devices needed for high pressure fogging need a rather extensive investment as well as substantial operating cost.

If high pressure fogging is needed powerful motors, pressure regulating devices, high pressure valves, high grade piping and much more is needed to make a high quality fog possible.

This may well be the reason that many small enterprises have to resign the investment into such a system, notwithstanding they would have quite some benefits from it. In many smaller companies in the wood-, paper- or textile-working industries the rather high investments cannot easily be translated into increases quality of the products or the manufacturing processes.

Plantfog . . . .

has realized these problems and is offering a new, revolutionary way to resolve them. the result of our developments delivers a similar efficiency of evaporation combined with a drastic reduction if investments.
In addition the necessary energy-cost could be reduced dramatically.
While in conventional systems the pressurized water is delivered by a central high pressure pump (with all necessry components) by means of an expensive, high pressure piping network, our "fogbooster" combines fan, pressure pump and magnetic valve an independent unit which receives water across a 8 mm low pressure line feeding water with some 2 - 8 bar.
The basis of this innovation was a new, maintenance-free miniature high-pressure pump, developed 2002 by Plantfog. The pump delivers a pressure of some 20.6 bar, and can feed up to 6 of our proven fogging nozzles type K1-150 which guarantee together with the vortex-actions of the fax the atomization of the water.

According to Application Profile and Humidification Performance the  "fogbooster" can be offered in two versions:

  • "fogbooster-Standard" - pressurized water from a single pump module running in interval-mode.
  • "fogbooster-C" - with two parallel pumps, working alternatively, providing 100 % continuous operation.

"fogbooster.Standard"

The version "fogbooster-Standard" (generic
picture with tube fan, 150W, 230VAC, performance 3.600 m/hr) the pressurized water is provided by a single pump module, running in interval-mode.

Technical Details:

  • Water intake (max. 8 bar), pressure reducing valve to 1.5 bar, intake magnetic valve 230 VAC
  • "tropic" pump module, 230V, 100W, resin cast to be total watertight
  • sound level of the pump < 35 dBA
  • control box protection IP54, for wall mounting with large clear lid
  • automatic fuse, interval relay: fogging duration continuously settable from 0120 sec, interval time unlimited
  • Fan runoff time continuously settable from 0.1s to (theor.) 10 days
  • 24-hour switching clock for setting of operating hours (option if needed)
  • contacts for external sensor control prepared (usually hygrostat or thermostat)
  • optional humidity- or temperature-sensor from our accessory-program
  • control-LED for display of "set value reached"
  • no restrictions regarding the fan used for air circulation
  • existing fans onsite can be refurbished with a "fogbooster"-fogging kit
  • welded stainless steel ring with up to 6 welded nozzles mounts and connecting adapter
  • fogging nozzles according to application profile: either K-100 (max each 0.8 lit/hr) or K-150 (max each 1.4 lit/hr)
  • maximum humidification result per hour: up to  max. some 8.4 litres

"fogbooster-C"

This version has been designed for 100% up-time, i.e. continuous operation. Two pump modules are operating alternating and produce a continuous flow of pressurized water as long as they are connected to power.

Technical Details:

  • Water intake (max. 8 bar), pressure reducing valve to 1.5 bar, intake magnetic valve 230 VAC
  • 2 "tropic" pump modules, 230V, 100W, resin cast to be total watertight
  • sound level of the pump < 35 dBA
  • control box protection IP54, for wall mounting with large clear lid
  • automatic fuse, interval relay: fogging duration continuously settable from 0120 sec, interval time unlimited
  • Fan runoff time continuously settable from 0.1s to (theor.) 10 days
  • 24-hour switching clock for setting of operating hours (option if needed)
  • contacts for external sensor control prepared (usually hygrostat or thermostat)
  • optional humidity- or temperature-sensor from our accessory-program
  • control-LED for display of "set value reached"
  • no restrictions regarding the fan used for air circulation
  • existing fans onsite can be refurbished with a "fogbooster"-fogging kit
  • welded stainless steel ring with up to 6 welded nozzles mounts and connecting adapter
  • fogging nozzles according to application profile: either K-100 (max each 0.8 lit/hr) or K-150 (max each 1.4 lit/hr)
  • maximum humidification result per hour: up to  max. some 12 litres

Application Example:

  • Ziehl-Abegg-Stable-Fan, with 6 fogging nozzles K-100
  • Humidification performance max. some 8.4 litres/hr

As the position of the pump modules with accessories is totally indifferent (horizontal, vertical, ceiling mount, ...) the pump modules for this application werde bolted to the stable ceiling.
