Evaporative coolers are also known as open space or swamp coolers. They were created to cool air cost-effectively and efficiently. Evaporative coolers are often considered a cheaper alternative to traditional air conditioners, which can be expensive to install and run. Evaporative Coolers are a better alternative to Air Conditioning. They create cold air by evaporating the water. This is a natural process.
Liquid water must absorb heat to transform into vapor during water evaporation. This is also known as Latent Heat Evaporation. This heat is carried by the water vapor that forms in the atmosphere. Air that has lost heat is now colder. This cooling process is used by Evaporative Coolers to deliver cold air to buildings and open areas.
What Are The Benefits Of Evaporative Cooling For Evaporative Coolers?
Evaporative coolers use a high-efficiency cooling material called evaporative cooler pads to aid water evaporation. The cooling pads are kept moist by water being pumped around the cooler’s walls. The cooling media cools the air as it draws air into them.
1. Water pumps distribute water from the water basin to the top of the cooling media, keeping it moist.
2. The fan pulls the heated air from the outside and passes it through the cooling medium.
3. When the air passes through moist materials, water evaporates. The cooler’s intake air cools due to the evaporation.
What Cooling Effects Can Evaporative Coolers Produce?
Evaporative cooling is a natural scientific phenomenon that occurs naturally. The cooling results of evaporative cool will depend on two factors: the outside relative humidity and the outside air temperature.
Evaporative coolers provide excellent cooling performance in dry environments with low relative humidity. This is because the cooler the environment, the less water evaporates. The more water that evaporates into the atmosphere, the colder it is. Evaporative Coolers work best in hotter, dryer environments.
Evaporative Coolers can provide air 10 degrees Celsius colder than the ambient temperature in ideal conditions. If the outside temperature is 38°C, an Evaporative Cooler can cool it to 28°C in the best meteorological conditions.
Which Evaporative Coolers Are Most Commonly Used?
Evaporative coolers can cool semi-enclosed buildings and open areas. Evaporative coolers are most commonly found in factories, warehouses and workshops. However, they can also be found outdoors in commercial settings like semi-outdoor shopping centers, office complexes and many more. You can also find smaller Evaporative Coolers in residential settings.
Waterline Cooling Evaporative Coolers were specifically designed for industrial-grade applications. They are available in larger airflow capacities to meet the cooling requirements of large businesses.
What Is The Difference Between Air Conditioning Systems And Evaporative Coolers?
Evaporative coolers are not intended to replace any HVAC or refrigeration system. Air conditioning is a combination of coolants, refrigerants, and heat exchangers to produce cooled air at extremely low temperatures. It can create extremely low temperatures but it takes a lot of energy to run it all day. The running costs of chilling an entire facility or warehouse with air conditioning are prohibitive for most industrial establishments.
An evaporative cooling system’s running cost is approximately 50% less than an HVAC system for cooling the same area. Evaporative cooling systems are preferred by many manufacturing decision-makers because they offer a more pleasant work environment than air conditioning.
