Evaporative Cooling

April 28, 2011


Evaporative cooling utilizes the basics of air and water to produce a very significant temperature drop. Evaporative cooling can also create a desired amount of humidification to increase efficiency of machinery or comfort in buildings. Because of its effectiveness in cooling and humidification, evaporative cooling is the primary choice in such industries as: gas turbine, greenhouse, livestock farming, automobile painting, residential cooling, and commercial building climate control.

An evaporative cooling system consists of pads which are designed to absorb and hold water and give maximum surface area for air and water contact. As air passes through the pads the natural evaporation of water creates cooled and humidified air.

The economy of using evaporative cooling is surprising to most people. A 90% reduction in energy used by using evaporative cooling compared to a conventional air conditioning unit seems too good to be true.

Energy costs are  likely to continue to rise in the future as will the energy requirements of most organizations. Taking steps today to increase the efficiency of the cooling system can offset the impact of rising energy costs.

DRI's Arctic Coolers, offer a completely natural way of producing refreshing cool air. DRI Arctic range Evaporative cooling units have been specifically designed for the cooling of industrial and commercial buildings. They are capable of lowering the fresh air temperature by 7-12 degrees, e.g- the air-off temperature from the evaporative cooler for an outside temperature of 40-43 degrees C can be as low as 28-30 degrees C. They allow cool fresh air to circulate throughout a building forcing the stale hot air to be displaced out. Unlike air- conditioning which operates with re-circulated air, Arctic coolers operate on the principle of air change and work as part of balanced ventilation system.

DRI Arctic Coolers use the EcoCool Evaporative Cooling Pads. EcoCool pads are highly efficient, consistent in performance over a very long life, self-supporting, highly absorbent and can be easily cleaned. They allow higher cooling with lower air volume and are over 80% efficient.

Additional Benefits

A Reduction in temperature in the work place creates the obvious benefits of improved staff morale, increased productivity and a reduction in absenteeism: evaporative cooling can provide additional benefits-

An Environmentally safe solution - evaporation is a natural process.
Eliminates odors and stale air instead of re-circulating them.
Money saving - running costs up to 90% less than an air conditioning system
Doors and windows can remain open with no detrimental effect on the efficiency or operating cost.
Provides a natural environment and improves air quality
