Fog-Humidification Units Play Major Role in Facility's Cooling-System Improvements

September 2010
Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Sep2010, Vol. 82 Issue 9, p22
The article discusses the option of Virginia's Division of Consolidated Laboratory Services (DCLS) for a fog-humidification system to reduce maintenance issues of its gas-fired clean-steam humidifiers. It mentions their use of the MeeFog humidification system from Mee Industries Inc. The system has three 7.5 horsepower (hp) pumps, two of which are sufficient to handle the load of the building's three air handlers. A reverse-osmosis (RO) water softening system to provide purified water.
