Lange Yacht Outdoor Cooling and Fog Design
29th September 2015 in Industry News
Lange Yacht Outdoor Cooling was established in 2014 in Germany.
They are developing and producing Yacht Outdoor Cooling Systems and offer complete tailor-made cooling solutions to their customers. Their systems can also be used to create scenographic fog effects in connection with LED lights. They can be fitted also into railings, sunshades and deck-furnitures.
When anchoring in bays during summer in the mediterranean or other parts of the world they have
realised that lots of decks are empty seem to be abandoned during midday hours
because of hot temperatures. After testing of systems used in the industry or in restaurants they found out that these system and components are not suitable for use on Yachts, mainly because of lack of cooling, but also because of hygienic problems, like germs or legionella bacteria, corrosion or noisy or dripping nozzles.
They have developed a new system, specially for Yachts and Mega Yachts for which a patent is pending.
Water from the fresh water system is filtered in a special filter unit or in a reverse osmosis system before entering a high pressure pump with an integrated UV-water treatment unit. The pump achieves a pressure of up to 1600 psi. Flexible HP-polyamide tubes, multi ply tubes or stainless steel tubes are connecting the pump with the fogging jet nozzles. They use 3 different types of
nozzles. They can be installed as single nozzles in any position or can be integrated in a console or bar as a set of nozzles. The other possibility is to use a removable system with fast connectors. When the water is leaving the nozzles it will be atomized into Micro-droplets, forming a light fog which immediately evaporates. Due to adiabatic cooling effect the ambient air temperature can be reduced by up to 10° C. The cool and heavier air will descend. Persons, objects or surfaces will not get wet as the water evaporates immediately. When the system is used for surface cooling there will be no limestone or other residuals on the surfaces or windows due to the very effective water treatment. The system can work in permanent mode or in interval mode. When the system depressurizes the remaining water is added to the circuit and treated again before entering the pump.
They offer individual concepts from the planing stage until the final installation. Before the final installation of their system they carry out an onboard test in order to choose the best components and design and also to determine the optimum nozzle position for an esthetic fog picture.
