Misting System at Railway Station to Comfort Passengers

This summer, passengers alighting or boarding trains at Nagpur railway station will be a little more comfortable thanks to a misting system being installed at three platforms. Central Railway divisional railway manager (DRM) Brijesh Kumar Gupta told the misting system was being installed on platform 1, 2 and 3. It will emit a fine spray of water that would instantly vaporise in the air by absorbing heat from atmosphere bringing down the air temperature 5 to 6 degree Celsius in the process.

"The engineering department has completed most of the work and we expect it to be commissioned early next month. The tiny water droplets emitted by it absorb heat, making people comfortable," said Gupta.
Being installed at the cost of Rs. 20 lakh, the system will cover the area between foot-over-bridges (FOBs) on Wardha and Itarsi ends. Besides, it will also provide cool breeze for passengers at open waiting hall on west side, where once there was parcel office. This will be the first misting system across the Central Railway zone having five divisions — Mumbai, Pune, Solapur, Bhusawal and Nagpur. Such a system already exists at Raipur and Gondia stations of South East Central Railway (SECR).
"There is a plan to set up misting system at Solapur station but work on it has not yet started," said engineering department officials.

A small pipe has been laid beneath the platform ceiling. It has copper spray nozzles at 1.5 metre intervals. It will be fed by high pressure pumping water tanks. Under pressure the nozzles will emit water that would be atomized enabling it to turn into vapour instantly by taking in latent heat from the hot summer air.

Shukla hailed the Central Railway move saying during the summer, passengers faced tough time waiting for trains at the station. "Especially, in Nagpur it is too hot in April, May and June. The system will give some relief to passengers. It should be installed at other platforms too.
