Heavy Duty Systems

The IBEX Heavy-Duty Industrial Humidifier System

The IBEX Fogging System is the culmination of many years of development and design, an evolution that began with the very inception of MicroCool more than 30 years ago. Precision nozzles are easily mounted on specially fabricated stainless steel and flexible lines, and strategically spaced to distribute the fog evenly and effectively into the air. On larger installations with free unobstructed areas, multiple grids and zones can be operated from a single pump source. A host of safety and service features are built into the IBEX industrial humidifier system to enable simple maintenance and operation.

IBEX applications

IBEX systems have the capacity to deliver from 17 lb/hr. (7.50 kg) up to 90 lb/hr. (41kg) from a single pump unit. MicroCool designers work closely with you to determine your specific cooling and humidification needs and will propose a custom-made system for the application. Versatile MicroCool ROC nozzle assemblies can be mounted on stainless steel or flexible pipe to distribute fog evenly through the space, providing a uniform fog distribution.

All IBEX heavy-duty industrial humidifier systems offer a variety of options. We recommend that each pump system is paired with a MicroCool Reverse Osmosis system to provide clean hygienic water to the system. RO water also keeps nozzles in perfect operating condition by removing the mineral salts that can build up in the nozzles.

IBEX Pump details

Our exclusive IBEX fog pumps are packed with advanced MicroCool technology to deliver powerful, economical, long-life performance in even the most demanding settings. IBEX pumps deliver from 2.00 USGPM to 11 USGPM (see data sheets) and can be configured for single and multiple zones using the zone controller.

IBEX is designed for safety and ease of use. A convenient LCD screen provides access to a full range of safety, performance and service settings. All controls are placed at a comfortable height to avoid bending over. Standard 5- and 10-micron filters can easily be replaced due the height of the pump, and an Ultraviolet light can be easily mounted at the rear. Adjustable feet make sure that the pump stands level and solidly on the ground. All electrical panels are built to UL 508A specifications and feature internal safety equipment.

  • Variable frequency drive — Automatically adjusts pump speed to water flow and number of nozzles
  • Compact, quiet — Less intrusive, can be mounted closer to production areas
  • Low energy use saves money — Reduces electricity usage by more than 60%
  • High efficiency motor — Puts less wear and tear on the pump
  • Inlet pressure switch — Prevents the system from running dry and damaging the pump
  • Pressure transducer — Maintains optimal system pressure for MicroCool nozzles
  • External connections — Ties into external sensors, BMS systems (analog) and climate control systems
  • Drain valve — With a PLC controller, the valve opens just enough to release the pressure, saving valuable water usage
  • Built to 508A UL standard — Ensures safety, reliability
  • Powder coated steel frame — Offers strong, long-lasting durability
  • 1-year warranty — Backed by responsive MicroCool service

MicroCool ROC Line

Simply put, MicroCool fog lines look better, perform better and last longer. ROC lines are available in both flexible and stainless steel lines suitable for different applications. Nozzle spacing is determined on design but many standard sizes are available. Each system is designed with a careful eye on hydraulic pipe losses. Single and double ROC collars available.

  • Stainless steel lines and fittings – No corrosion
  • Flexibility – Flexible nylon hose uses brass compression fitting.
  • 3/8″ diameter — More rigidity and longer nozzle runs
  • Innovative rotating collar — The ROC collar is a MicroCool exclusive, allows each nozzle to be rotated through 180° independently.
  • ROC collar options — Available on both stainless steel and flexible lines.
  • Corrosion proof, weld-free — Nozzle attachment prevents warping associated with other systems
  • Made in the USA — Dependable quality
  • Strength — Our stainless-steel lines are tested to 3,000 psi to ensure integrity

Heavy-Duty Systems

Maintaining optimal humidity levels is crucial for a wide range of industrial processes. Our heavy-duty systems are designed for high-output applications and are ideal for sustaining fresh air and cooling greenhouses, barns, waste transfer stations, condensers, and air-cooled heat exchangers. While several options exist for industrial humidification, none is more effective and versatile than MicroCool’s IBEX Industrial Humidifier.

Advantages of MicroCool’s IBEX Humidification System

The IBEX Heavy-Duty Humidifier is one of the most advanced, energy-efficient, and reliable humidification systems available. Its unmatched performance stems from a range of innovative features and technologies that set it apart from other large humidifiers, like whole-house humidifiers or industrial warm-mist humidifiers. Here are some of the key advantages you will get with our IBEX humidification system:

It Reduces Electricity Usage by More Than 60%

Our evaporative humidifiers can reduce electricity usage by over 60% in commercial facilities by utilizing energy-efficient technologies such as precise humidity control and mist output. The IBEX system generates fine water droplets that can be quickly absorbed by the air, which uses less energy compared to traditional systems.

Precise humidity control allows for optimized and efficient energy use as the system only uses the amount of water and energy necessary to maintain consistent relative humidity levels. The system’s efficient design can further reduce maintenance requirements, leading to additional cost and energy savings.

It Includes a Variable Speed Drive

A Variable Speed Drive (VSD) is a type of device used to control the speed at which an evaporative humidifier operates. It is most commonly used for large-room humidifiers and is designed to provide greater control over the humidity levels in a space.

The VSD works by taking the input voltage, converting it to a motor-friendly frequency and voltage, and then adjusting the speed of the motor to a desired level. This allows the user to control the humidity levels in a space more precisely than with a traditional humidifier.

It also helps to reduce energy consumption because the motor is only running at the speed needed to achieve the desired level of humidity and cooling. Additionally, the VSD helps to protect the humidifier from damage due to over- or under-humidification. In short, a Variable Speed Drive is an efficient, precise, and energy-saving way to control air circulation and the level of humidity in a space.

It Has an Outstanding Capacity Ideal for Large Rooms

Another key advantage of the IBEX system is its heavy-duty construction. The humidifier is designed to withstand even the harshest industrial environments while effectively humidifying spaces up to 10,000 square feet. This makes it the perfect humidification system for large industrial facilities that require high-capacity humidification.

It Is User-Friendly

As one of the best large room humidifiers, the IBEX system is designed to be simple to use and easy to maintain. Its user-friendly control panel allows for simple adjustments of humidity levels and monitoring of system performance. Moreover, its sleek and compact design makes it easy to install and integrate into any facility.

It Lowers the Risk of Contamination

The close-loop system in our IBEX humidifiers prevents contamination and the spread of air-borne diseases by ensuring the dry air that is circulated within the system is filtered and treated before being released back into the environment. The system includes several built-in filters, each of which removes different contaminants and microorganisms from the humidified air.
