Evaporative cooling is a technology that bases its operation on a natural system of heat transfer to the contact of air with cold water. In recent years, the development of technological improvements, such as high-efficiency motors or frequency converters, have led to an “à la carte” operation of the cooling towers that makes them reach a great energy optimization

Both from the environmental point of view, by legislation and awareness, and by the side of the future profitability of the investment, savings and energy efficiency have become an imperative of any air conditioning project.

The technologies are improving and among them, the Association of Cold Companies and their Technologies, AEFYT highlights the development that has experienced evaporative cooling as one of the technologies for industrial refrigeration and air conditioning of large buildings more efficient.

In any case, when dealing with a refrigeration and air conditioning project, AEFYT reminds us that when we address the profitability of the installation it is necessary to cross three fundamental data: initial cost of the installation, maintenance cost and energy consumption. In his opinion, “evaporative cooling is a winning bet in most cases.”

Advantages of evaporative cooling
From the point of view of energy management, he affirms that it is an efficient technology in itself, since it bases its operation on a natural system that transfers heat through the contact of air with cold water. An efficiency that in the last years has still gone further with the arrival of new technological advances.

Now, “the cooling towers include technology that has improved this aspect, as high efficiency engines, which meet 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 tower “a la carte” with the consequent energy optimization “, says this Association in a statement.

Regarding maintenance, he adds that 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 the proliferation of legionella colonies.

In this regard, remember that 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 energy efficiency levels.

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, 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, a honeycomb with mesh structure, made of high density polyethylene , and marketed under the names of PANAL C & V or if it is a separator of drops, SEPARATOR C & V.
