The concept of energy efficiency has acquired great relevance in every air conditioning and refrigeration project of a new installation, whether industrial or tertiary use. The objectives of any industrial sector are oriented towards energy saving as a fundamental asset in the future profitability of the investment by the property; As for other types of buildings, legislation and greater environmental awareness have made the criterion of energy efficiency also a necessity.

Technologies are improving and providing the necessary efficiency any new work or improvement in the form of rehabilitation. In this concept, evaporative cooling is presented as one of the technologies for industrial refrigeration and air conditioning of large, more efficient buildings. For this reason, the Evaporative Refrigeration Group of AEFYT, Association of Cold Companies and their Technologies, has developed five keys to take into account when addressing a refrigeration and air conditioning project.

Maintenance: A correct maintenance of the installation allows to detect any fault and correct it in time. In the case of evaporative cooling, these controls are mandatory and are included in Decree 865/2003, of July 4, which establishes the hygienic-sanitary criteria for the prevention and control of legionellosis as a measure to prevent proliferation of legionella colonies. But good maintenance, with frequent and scheduled cleaning, has repercussions on the condition of the machinery and also serves to increase the useful life of the equipment and maintain the levels of energy efficiency.

Profitability: In this question, we have to cross three fundamental data: initial cost of the installation, maintenance cost and energy consumption. Evaporative cooling is a winning bet in most cases.

Listen to the experts: All manufacturers of evaporative cooling equipment include equipment maintenance tips; likewise, there are highly professional specialized companies. Going to companies of dubious reputation for maintenance can cost expensive in terms of energy efficiency but, above all, environmental health. We remind you that the owner is the last responsible so it is not convenient to take risks.

Energy management: It is often said that the cheapest energy is the one that is not consumed. Evaporative cooling is an efficient technology from the moment it bases its operation on the natural system of heat transfer to the contact of air with cold water, but in recent years, cooling towers include technology that has improved this aspect , as high efficiency motors, that respond to the IE 2 and IE 3 standards and offer a very high performance; frequency converters that allow the regulation and control of the operation of the equipment, so that the need for energy is adjusted exactly to the demands of consumption and maintenance. The result is an operation of the “a la carte” tower with the consequent energy optimization.

Rehabilitation: Is your tower more than 20 years old? Change it: the energy saving will compensate the investment. In addition, both in new construction and in rehabilitated buildings, the energy factor is an urban obligation to which the chosen air conditioning system can contribute dramatically.

Control and Ventilation, S.L. is a company of international renown within the industrial and livestock sector, for being a manufacturer of products within the evaporative cooling sector, such as the HUMIBAT, evaporative plastic cooler; or its NUCLEOS towers, Cooling Towers. In both products, which the substrate in which the evaporative is produced is a plastic honeycomb, a honeycomb resistant to both physical and chemical attacks, and at the same time flexible, is a honeycomb with mesh structure, manufactured in High Density Polyethylene , and marketed under the names of PANAL C & V or if it is a separator of drops, SEPARATOR C & V.
