Innovative Technology

The EcoMister at Work

THE ECOMISTER USES THE NATURAL POWERS OF EVAPORATION, AND SUPER CHARGES IT BY PUMPING WASTEWATER OUT OF OUR TRAJECTORY EVAPORATOR OVER A CONTAINMENT POND, CONTAINMENT AREA, OR RE-CIRCULATING AREA ON SITE.  BY THROWING THE WATER OUT OF THE EVAPORATOR, THE ECOMISTER NOZZLES CREATE IDEAL WATER DROPLET SIZES THAT DRIFT IN THE AIR CREATING WHAT WE CALL “HANG TIME”.  THE ENGINEERS AT ECOMISTER HAVE BEEN PERFECTING THEIR DESIGNS FOR OVER 25 YEARS, AND BY ENGINEERING THE IDEAL WATER DROPLET SIZE AND LOFTING IT INTO THE AIR, THE WATER EVAPORATES AT AN ENHANCED RATE.

Slimline’s patented Turbine and wind tunnel technology are combined to dramatically outperform any other evaporation system available. The Turbine in every handmade EcoMister Evaporator is engineered and manufactured to a clearance of 1/50th of an inch. With this precision, the EcoMister Evaporator generates 160 km/hour (100 MPH) air velocity through the wind tunnel, the nozzling atomizes the liquid exposing the maximum volume of water particles to the air creating optimal hang time to enable evaporation. Having the ability to precisely engineer water droplet size and control spray direction and loft results in maximized evaporation while simultaneously minimizing the potential for drift.  

Based on prevailing winds, pond size and desired evaporation volumes, Slimline Manufacturing will customize a solution that best meets your goals of cost savings, pond maintenance and environmental safety.

FAQ

We offer an automated wind speed and wind direction control monitoring system that manages the operation of the evaporator. The controls start and stops the evaporator when the wind blows in and out of pre-set parameters. If the wind blows to hard outside of the allotted zone the evaporator will shut off, if the wind calms the evaporator will restart.

This is dependent on your site. Our units rely on mother nature and local climate conditions. Our largest unit moves 80 gallons per minute, so with an evaporation rate of 50%, this results in 40 gallons per minute. On a larger scale, 40 million US gallons per year results in an evaporation of 20 million gallons per year. 

Our evaporator packages can be increased by adding multiple units to one pump package. This allows us to scale up or down to suit the needs of customers sites.

This figure is highly dependent on energy costs. Typical disposal rate is a tenth of a penny $0.001 per US Gallon OR $0.26 per Cubic Meter.

Our units are purposely designed for minimal maintenance and cost. Nozzle replacement may be required every 2 years, annual lubrication of machinery is recommended, and a major bearing replacement may be required every 5 years.

We are able to tailor the motors to your specific voltage requirements.

Efficiency is the volume of water evaporated as a percentage of the volume pumped aloft.

We have engineered and designed the EcoMister to be the most efficient water evaporators they can be. This means specific water volumes are pumped out of the nozzles, preventing saturation of the plume, creating ideal hang time and drift, precise droplet sizes, and the highest evaporation efficiency.

Utilizing the EcoMister Evaporator as their wastewater disposal solution, our customers spend on average $0.0010 per US Gallon ($0.26 per Cubic Meter) on disposal.

Heavy Duty MODELS

The HD Solutions are built for the harshest operating conditions, and highly contaminated water. High quality stainless steel and a specially blended powder coating allow our systems to stand up to the toughest environments. Built with a patented “Turbo-mist” turbine, Heavy Duty Solutions are the most durable and corrosion resistant evaporators available, period.

Asset 50ICON

Light Duty MODELS

The LD Solutions are designed to mirror the performance and functionality of the HD Solutions however they are typically for environments that have low to moderately contaminated water. Also built with a patented “Turbo-mist” turbine, Light Duty Solutions provide a lower cost, robust solution for your wastewater disposal needs.

REDUCE COST AND ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT

Through extensive research and testing, we’ve developed a standardized process that allows you to safely and consistently dispose of wastewater without the use of chemicals, filter media or the burning of petroleum products. Our system naturally evaporates wastewater to eliminate trucking costs, significantly reducing your carbon footprint while also reducing cost.
