# How much water does the fog cannon use per hour?

2022-06-14

If you want to know how much water a fog cannon needs per hour, you first need to know two important parameters - range and spray flow.

The range is an important parameter of the long-range fog gun. In the industry, the product is determined according to the range, the number of nozzles, the power of water pump, the power of hydraulic station and the motor. Generally speaking, fog cannon with conventional ranges of 30m, 40m, 50m, 60m, 80m, 100m, 120m and 150m use different amounts of water at different ranges.

Due to the different configurations of different manufacturers, the water consumption is different. In order to accurately calculate the water consumption per hour, it is necessary to ask the manufacturer to provide spray flow, and then carry out the formula conversion.

Spray flow refers to the water consumption of the fog cannon per minute, in unit of L/min.

Calculation formula:

Water consumption per hour (tons)= L/min×60÷1000

For example, the spray flow rate of the 60-meter fog gun is 60L to 80L per minute. By using the above formula, 60 times 60 divided by 1000 equals 3.6, and 80 times 80 divided by 1000 equals 6.4. It can be concluded that the water consumption of the 60-meter fog gun is between 3.6 and 6.4 tons per hour, and the water consumption can be controlled through adjustment.
