Misting systems

Best-Chem have been appointed as sole distributors for UK & Ireland by Nor Elektronik Ltd of Turkey - manufacturers of the world’s leading misting equipment - NORMIST.

Normist is widely recognised across the world and has built its reputation on producing components and nozzles of the highest quality.
The main advantages of our misting kits are their versatility, design simplicity and excellent build quality.

Our high pressure misting systems utilise a high pressure pump, operating at around 70-80 bar, and specially designed precision nozzles to produce a fine mist of water droplets varying from 4 to 20 microns in size depending on the nozzle selected.  As the mist creates a cloud and collides with the airbourne dust particles, the wetted dust particles then fall to the ground in a localised area reducing the spread of the dust.

The Diagram on the right illustrates a typical misting system configuration.

For most applications we offer a bespoke personalized solution tailored to the customer requirements. Our core activity is to design, build, supply and install the misting systems.
We also stock a range of standard misting kits, which we can supply for self installation.  Each kit comes complete with water pump, control panel, water filters, nozzles, fittings and tubing.

The misting system uses push-fit fittings made of brass or stainless steel making it very easy to install, maintain and reconfigure if your needs change. The pipework consists of semi rigid high pressure 3/8” nylon tubing.

Dust Suppression

Misting systems can be particularly useful in dust control where you want to control unavoidable releases of dust in to the atmosphere. 

For example:

  • Loading hoppers
  • Lorry loading / unloading
  • Train unloading

Size matters

The water molecule (10 millionth of a meter in diameter) provides the optimum size droplet for attraction and suppression of PM 10 and smaller dust particles. The misting systems can effectively remove breathable and fugitive dust particles from 1 to 100 microns.

A properly designed and installed misting system can suppress and remove breathable fugitive dust particles as small as 1 micron in diameter and easily exceed the PM10 standards for dust suppression.       

Other Industries

As well as dust suppression our misting systems can also be used for -

  • Odour Control
  • Outdoor Cooling
  • Greenhouses
  • Industrial Humidification
  • Patio Cooling
