Misting - The Science of Evaporative Cooling

For centuries, warm-climate dwellers have used the principle of evaporative cooling to combat the heat. In ancient Egypt, servants would fan air over water-filled jars. American Indians hung water-soaked burlap cloth over windows and doors. Fast-forward to today, and MicroCool misting systems meld this age-old principle with the very latest technology to create comfortable temperatures for private residences, commercial venues and industrial applications all over the world.
