Cooling systems have evolved drastically over the years. Evaporative cooling systems – one of the earliest used cooling systems – works on the principle of vaporization. Under the right ambient conditions, Evaporative cooling provides energy efficient cooling.
In an evaporative cooler, the pump circulates water from the reservoir on to a cooling pad, which gets wet. A fan draws in air from the outside through the cooling pad. The key to effective evaporative cooling is ensuring that each of the cooling pads is completely saturated and that the right amount of airflow is maintained.
HMX (a part of the A.T.E. Group) manufactures a range of industrial cooling systems that are based on proprietary indirect direct evaporative cooling technology (or IDEC).
Different types of Evaporative Cooling system by A.T.E Group: -
• Indirect Evaporative Cooling:
The heat exchanger cools the air, where the secondary air carries heat energy and primary air is vapour.
• Direct Evaporative Cooling:
Air temperature is reduced directly by the water evaporating into the air stream.
Air is first cooled with indirect evaporating cooling, and then with a direct evaporating cooling.
• Indirect Evaporating Cooling and CWC:
The air is cooled using indirect evaporating cooling and then the desired temperature is achieved with a CWC (chilled water coil).
Each of these is unique in their own way and have a different function on its own.
Uses of Evaporative Cooling System:Evaporative cooling systems provide comfort cooling for industrial and commercial spaces. This also leads to reduced energy costs.
