What are Evaporative Coolers?

Evaporative Coolers, otherwise called swamp coolers or Open Space Coolers, were created as a reasonable and energy and operating costs. Unlike the Evaporative Air Conditioner, the Evaporative Cooler produces cool air by evaporating water, which is a more natural process.

Simply put – during the process of evaporation of water, water which is a liquid needs to absorb a relatively large amount of heat in order to turn into steam (also known as Idle Intensity of Dissipation). While the subsequent water fume escapes into the climate, this intensity is carried away. It is this heat release that makes the air cooler than previously. Evaporative Coolers exploit this cooling peculiarity to create cool air that can be disseminated all through structures, open spaces, and also to people who need cooling.

How Evaporative Cooler Makes Use of Evaporative Coolers?

The Evaporative Cooler uses a special high-efficiency cooling medium called an evaporative cooling pad to facilitate water evaporation. In a heat sink, water circulates around the walls where the cooling pad is placed, keeping the cooling medium wet. When air is sucked through the cooling pad, the water contained in the cooling medium is evaporated so that it will cool the air that passes through it.

  1. In operation, the water siphon circles water from the reservoir to the top of the cooling medium so that it remains wet all the time.
  2. A running fan causes warm air outside to be drawn into the cooler through the cooling medium.
  3. As air passes through the wet cooling medium, the water will evaporate. This water evaporation causes the air entering the cooling machine to cool.

What cooling results could Evaporative Coolers at any point accomplish?

The process of evaporative cooling is a scientific natural phenomenon that occurs in nature. Naturally, the cooling result of the evaporative cooler will depend heavily on two surrounding factors, to be specific the external relative moistness and the outside air temperature.

The Evaporative Cooler provides better cooling results in drier conditions where the relative humidity is not too high. This makes sense because the drier the air outside, the more water from the cooling medium can evaporate into the atmosphere. Moreover, the more water that evaporates into the atmosphere during this process, the cooler the air that remains. As such, Evaporative Coolers perform best in hotter, drier conditions, and the ASEAN region is a suitable example of a place that has successfully utilized evaporative cooling.

Under the most ideal conditions, the Evaporative Cooler can supply air as low as 10° C cooler than the outside temperature. For example, if the outside air temperature is 38° C, the Evaporative Cooler can take that air and cool it down to 28° C in the most ideal atmospheric conditions where the outside air is hot and dry.

Where are Evaporative Coolers Usually Used?

Evaporative Cooler is suitable for cooling semi-enclosed buildings to wide open areas. They are usually used in industrial applications like in production lines, distribution centers, studios, and so on and can likewise be viewed as in business spaces like semi-outside shopping regions, office edifices and others. Evaporative coolers with smaller capacities can also be found for use in residential areas.

Waterline Evaporative Cooler Chillers are manufactured specifically to suit modern grade necessities and are presented in bigger wind current abilities to serve the cooling needs of enormous production lines.

How Do Evaporative Coolers Compare With AC (Air Conditioning) Systems?

The Evaporative Cooler is not a similar replacement for any HVAC and cooling system. Unlike the Evaporative Cooler, AC uses a combination of refrigerant and refrigerant to produce cold air at very low temperatures. While it can produce very cold temperatures, it requires a lot of energy throughout the day to do so. For industrial applications, it is too expensive for most facilities to handle the operating costs of cooling an entire plant or warehouse when using air conditioning.

To provide a rough idea in cost comparisons and to cool an area of ​​the same size, operating costs using an Evaporative Cooler system are on average 50% lower than operating costs using an HVAC system. Due to cost efficiency factors, many factory decision makers choose Evaporative Cooler systems because they can provide an environment n comfortable work with lower air conditioning costs.

Are All Evaporative Coolers Created Equal?

Of course not. There are many types of Evaporative Coolers available in the market. Some may be made with higher quality components, and others may be made with less expensive household grade materials which can seriously reduce product life.

However, you can rest assured that the Waterline brand Evaporative Cooler is manufactured to ensure long-term use in any industrial environment. We strictly select the use of industrial grade components made from reputable manufacturers. To learn more about why you should choose Waterline, read here about our Open Space Refrigeration range.
