"FLASH EVAPORATE” AND KEEP COOL!
Orbit Irrigation Products, Inc., Announces Misting Products that Reduce Air Temperature by 20 Degrees
North Salt Lake, Utah - July 21, 2003 – Orbit® Irrigation Products, Inc., one of the world's leading manufacturers and suppliers of irrigation products for the residential and commercial markets announced today a variety of misting products to keep individuals, families and pets cool during the hot summer months.
“Utah is the second driest state in the country,” said Orbit CEO, K.C. Ericksen. “Combine the dryness with record heat this summer, and people have been feeling a bit uncomfortable. Mist cooling is a simple and inexpensive way to effectively reduce outdoor temperatures by as much as 20 degrees. We designed our misting products to keep our customers cool and comfortable.”
The ArizonaMist products from Orbit use principles of evaporative cooling, where water is forced through specially designed mist nozzles and converted into an ultra-fine mist. When water droplets this small hit the surrounding air, they “flash evaporate” reducing the surrounding temperature. The products range from portable units for the active person on the go, to cooling systems for the entire home patio.
The ArizonaMist Chilly Mate is a personal, portable cooler that is great for any outdoor sport or activity. Many young men and women are involved in outdoor sports like baseball, soccer and softball. The Chilly Mate product is ideal for use during these activities. Fill the 24 ounce bottle with water, adjust the belt around the waist or over a shoulder and cooling action is ready at the press of a finger. Mist units are also used to keep pets cool during a hot summer day.
Orbit has also announced the ArizonaMist Outdoor Cooling Kits, complete patio cooling systems that are versatile and easy to install. They can attach to a standard garden hose, and can be put on a hose faucet timer. Systems can be installed in minutes and transform a patio into an oasis of coolness and comfort.
