Tempest Misting Ring

The Tempest Misting Ring, when attached to any 16” or larger blower, instantly creates a cool mist envelope, lowering the overall temperature of the surrounding air.


Ideal for firefighter rehab. Can also be used to knock down dust and other suspended particles.


Three nozzle sizes available with flow rates from 0.5 to 5.8 gallons-per-hour (1.1 is standard).

Smooth Bore Ducting

Tempest Shadow Bore Ducting is a cost-effective way to ventilate a structure from greater distances with less friction and velocity loss when compared with standard corrugated ducting. Made of durable 6 mil plastic and treated to reduce static build up.


Smooth Bore Ducting can be cut and taped to cover oversized doorways and openings for PPV applications. Fits 24” and smaller blowers and is available in any length or on standard 500’ rolls.
