Cost effective alternative for large buildings
Industrial Evaporative Coolers
EcoCoolers offer minimum maintenance and are safe and easy to operate
Cooling your industrial buildings
Many modern buildings require industrial cooling either for the comfort of the occupants or to protect the processes or equipment that they contain.
There are three typical methods which can be employed to cool these buildings; ventilation, evaporative cooling or a refrigeration-based air conditioning system. The choice of system can have a dramatic effect on the total carbon emissions of the building and the energy consumed due to their different electrical demands.
Ventilation systems can provide comfort cooling for most of the year. During prolonged periods of high temperatures, they are unable to maintain internal temperatures below 25°C. Refrigeration based systems are effective but can be expensive to operate and require frequent maintenance. Evaporative cooling, which can produce air consistently below 22°C in the UK climate, provides an intermediate solution which consumes only a fraction of the electricity.
EcoCooler evaporative coolers delivers only 100% fresh air, at much lower costs than refrigerated cooling methods. Evaporative cooling is fast becoming the only viable option for cooling such large areas. A system uses up to 90% less energy and runs at less than 10% in comparison to refrigerated air con.
Doors and windows can be left open, with absolutely no loss of cooling efficiency. If you need to cool small areas within a large space, then evaporative cooling gives you the only effective option which is spot cooling. With spot cooling, an envelope of cool, high-velocity air can be directed to a specific area, irrespective of the surrounding conditioning. The evaporation process removes heat and produces a large continuous stream of comfortably cool, clean, fresh air.
Types of Industrial Cooling Installation:
For industrial cooling, EcoCoolers are used as part of a mechanical ventilation system to provide a cost effective alternative to refrigeration for large buildings. Evaporative coolers have a supply air temperature dependent upon the ambient temperature and humidity. On cool days this is the ambient (dry bulb temperature) and on hot days, when evaporative cooling is enabled, this is close to the ‘wet bulb’ temperature.
Step 1: Fresh air is brought into the system through EU4 pre-filters and Munters CELdek® pads.
Step 2: Evaporative cooling operates during warm periods to cool external air.
Step 3: An extract fan is specified to match the integral supply fan
Step 4: Control systems automatically match air flow to the amount of cooling required
Due to the large floor space within most warehouses and factories, the financial and energy savings can be astounding.
