WHAT IS EVAPORATIVE COOLING?
Evaporative air cooling is the most efficient means of cooling through the evaporation of water. Evaporation cooling works on the principle of heat absorption by moisture evaporation. The evaporative cooler fan draws the surrounding air into special pads that are soaked with water. The air is then cooled by evaporation, then circulated back into the surrounding area.
WHY EVAPORATIVE COOLING FANS OR SWAMP COOLERS?
The principle and participation in the use of evaporative cooling has gained rapid acceptance, mainly because this air cooling process relies solely on water evaporation with extremely low energy consumption (unlike true air conditioning) to produce a significant amount of atmospheric cooling. The use of evaporative coolers and cooling fans, as a whole, will generally pay for itself in just a few short years. Running this type of air cooling equipment, versus traditional air conditioning is more like an investment than a cost. Also, the low cost of maintaining this equipment is an added value to the end user, whether for commercial use or consumer use. Typically, evaporative cooling makes sense as an add-on piece of equipment to complement existing refrigerated air systems. Installing an evaporative cooler fan(s) can significantly reduce the amount of time and energy that mechanical refrigeration requires during the hot season. They can function perfectly in warm environments like welding shops.
Portable, staionary and window mount evaporative cooling fans, evaporative air coolers or swamp coolers are a great way to achieve a cooler and more comfortable work environment while saving money on air conditioning and utility costs. These fans work on a principle of drawing in warmer air into pads soaked with water where the air is then cooled by evaporation and then recirculated back into the space. This is unlike misting fans that spray small particulates of water to cool. Industrial Fans Direct offers evaporative air cooling fans with a wide range of capacities to fit your particular application.
