Ultra-fine atomized misting system
The AirGo Misting System fan is available with high-filtered misting, producing a cooling effect equivalent to 22 tons of air conditioning. The system’s design features an ultra-fine atomized mist that absorbs heat in the air and allows for a safe cooling zone in hot outdoor settings. The fan produces the cooling power of air conditioning in any setting. The AirGo Misting System provides a cooling breeze measured at 140 ft and about 6,000 sq ft of floor coverage area.
The VaporLokCapture is a breakthrough technology that adsorbs mercury vapors from broken lamps within lamp storage, shipping, or recycling containers. The VaporLokCapture is featured in VaporLok’s fluorescent lamp shipping and recycling system. The design minimizes the risk of exposure to mercury by reducing 95% of the vapor within a container. The VaporLokCapture is manufactured with powdered activated carbon and inert chemicals, which immediately capture mercury vapor when lamps or compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) break. The product will be incorporated into industrial products of VaporLok and consumer CFL packaging solutions.
