Adiabatic Coolers

Energy and space saving adiabatic cooling

What is an adiabatic cooler?

An adiabatic cooler works on the principle of evaporative cooling to lower the temperature of air in specific environments. Water gets pumped into a series of pads, followed by warmer air that causes some of the water to evaporate once it comes into contact with it. This evaporation process requires energy which is taken from the surrounding air, thus reducing its temperature.

The cooled air from within the pads recirculates itself into the space that needs to be cooled, and this is another way that adiabatic cooling systems assists with temperature reduction.


Applications of Adiabatic Coolers

Adiabatic coolers operate on a simple basis which makes them an ideal choice for a range of environments, including residential cooling, commercial building spaces and industrial processes.

Adiabatic coolers are built with an extra stage of cooling, which works by water being sprayed into the air stream as air is being drawn across the coil by a series of fans. The sprayed water evaporates into the air stream and cools the air before it passes over the coil and so enables a greater cooling effect on the coil.  This enables the cooler to cool the media (generally a water/glycol solution) to within 5°C of the wet bulb ambient temperature. This ability of adiabatic cooling systems makes them well suited for use in other environments such as greenhouses, poultry farms and data centres.

This final stage of cooling is only employed during the hottest times of the year. It is worth considering the importance of maintaining optimum temperatures for your environment during the summer months before choosing your cooler.


The Maziak Promise

Maziak works with leading designers and manufacturers of Adiabatic Coolers and can help you find the right solution for your operation.

Although similar to a dry air cooler, which we also have available here at Maziak, the adiabatic cooler has a smaller footprint which can assist when space is at a premium. We can also provide the same cooler orientations and options as our dry air cooler range. We also suggest checking out our cooling tower that we manufacture to see if it is better suited to your needs.
