Evaporative Cooling Pad

Evaporative Cooling in ConceptCoolingpad 2

To counter periods of extreme temperature that affect in-house environments and therefore production, Coolair Evaporative Cooling Pad Systems are used with outstanding success. When large quantities of air are pulled through Evaporative Cooling Pads that are saturated with water, a substantial cooling effect is realized due to the evaporation of that water. Used in conjunction with Coolair fans, a temperature reduction of 10-25 degrees is commonplace. Suited for virtually all geographic locations, the Coolair Evaporative Cooling System delivers the greatest economic benefits to areas where higher temperatures during longer periods of time are normal.

 

The Evaporative Cooling Pad

Evaporative Cooling Pads (Evap Pads) are a product developed for horticultural and agricultural cooling applications. Evap Pads are made of a specially formulated cellulose paper, impregnated with insoluble anti-rot salts, stiffening saturants and wetting agents. Evap Pads have a cross fluted configuration that provides maximum cooling when warm air passes through the wet Evap Pad material.

• Evap Pads will not sag, rot or develop holes.Coolingpad

• With proper care and maintenance, Evap Pads will last for 5 years or more.

• There is no carry-over of water droplets to enter the house.

• Aesthetic appearance of Evap Pads compliments modern buildings.

Evap Pads are 4” or 6” thick, and 12” or 24” wide with height increments every 12” from 24” to 72”. The Evap Pads are positioned adjacent to each other to form a continuous surface of the required height and length. In addition to the standard Evap Pad, Edge-coated pads, which help reduce algae growth or build-up, are also available. All 6” Evap Pads and 4” Evap Pads up to 48” tall are self-supporting, and do not require wire baskets or other supporting materials. The pads are held in place by component parts of the system. Tall pad supports are required on 4” pad systems over 4’ tall. Standard Evaporative Cooling Systems are available from 2’ to 6’ tall in lengths up to 110’. Systems up to 12’ tall are available with American Coolair’s ‘Doublestack’ Evap Pad Cooling System.

 

PVC System

Coolingpad PVC System

• System length 5’ to 110’ - System height 2’ to 6’ 

• Completely self-contained 

• PVC trough and sump included 
• Available in Standard Top (system includes pipe cover/spray deflector) or Open Top (for easy access to distribution pipe) designs

Pump and Sump
 
Coolingpad PVC System 1
The pumps are sized for the system to supply at least 1/2 gallon of water per 
minute per linear foot of pad system. The integral PVC sump and trough hold an adequate water supply for systems up to 110’ long and 6’ high.
 
 
 
  
 
 
 
 
Aluminum SystemCoolingpad Aluminum System
 
• System length 5’ to 100’ - System height 2’ to 6’ 
• Ideal when large amounts of cooling is needed. 
• Extruded aluminum trough 
• Aluminum pipe cover/ spray deflector 
• Multiple pump designs available. For longer systems, consult your American Coolair representative. 
 
  

 Pump and Sump 

The pumps are sized for the system to supply at least 1/2 gallon of water per minute per linear foot of pad system. The sump should be purchased locally and be sized for at least 3/4 gallon capacity per square foot of pad area. 
 
Water Distribution System Coolingpad water distribution system
 
The water distribution systems for the PVC, Aluminum, and Doublestack designs feature PVC pipe with metered outlet holes, water return trough, water filter, an automatic supply valve, and a volume control valve. All systems also include top and bottom pad support material, water distribution pipe cover (except for Open Top systems), and all necessary fasteners.
