Evaporative Cooling Pads and Cooling Pad Systems
for greenhouse and animal environments.
A PROVEN PERFORMER
Pads are cellulose cooling cells 4" (10 cm) and 6" (15 cm)
deep, 12"(30 cm) and 24" (60 cm) wide and available in 12"
(30 cm) increments from 24"(60 cm) to 72" tall with two pieces
of 4"(10 cm) deep combined to make 84"(214 cm) and 96"(244
cm) tall pads. Al they are available 78" (198 cm) tall. The cooling
cells are made from a specially formulated cellulose paper impregnated
with insoluble anti-rot salts. It is designed with an exclusive cross-fluted
configuration which induces highly turbulent mixing inside the pad between
the water and the air, and contributes to the evaporative efficiency.
The cross-fluted design makes pads a strong self-supporting pad with high
evaporative efficiency and low pressure drop (resistance to air flow).
A face velocity of 250 feet(75 m) per minute for 4"(10 cm) and 400
feet(120 m) per minute for 6"(15 cm) is recommended for the most
economical cost and operation.
Besides the cooling pads, other components of interest in a complete evaporative cooling system include water distribution and return systems.
Determine Total Summer Cooling Required in CFM, then divide by velocity
to obtain pad area in square feet. The pad area divided by the length
will determine the height in feet.
The 4" Acme Kool-Cel pad is constructed with air flow at equal 45- angles
which allows air flow to enter from either side of the pad.
Munters has different configurations for different industries. The 6"
CELdek pad contains flutes organized in two angles, one with steep pitch
and the other less pitched. The air must enter the pad from the side with
the steep pitch.
Evaporative cooling with Glacier-Cor - utilizes and perfects the time-proven,
energy-efficient method of cooling air by evaporating water. Glacier-Cor
Cooling Pads are composed of layers of mechanically corrugated, saturating-quality,
kraft paper (with high water retention properties) that has been impregnated
with thermo-setting resins. The corrugation forms channels at precisely
engineered angles. Air passes through the channels, evaporating the water
that is constantly present. The result is highly effective and efficient
Higher cooling efficiencies with lower volumes of air allows use of smaller
fans in R&D greenhouse, institutional greenhouses, etc.
Kool-Cel, Munters CELdek offer longest life of any pads.
Munters has warehouses around the world.
Throughout its life, our pad efficiency does not change because its cross-corrugated
structure resists clogging, sagging, gapping and fouling. With simple
procedures, it's literally self-cleaning!
We offer a variety of pad depths and angles, allowing you to choose
the perfect cooling system for you specific application.
Greenhouse pads come in many different sizes. We have cooling pads for every type of greenhouse.
All of our pads are compatible with our air-conditioning components.
- Comfort cooling for poultry or livestock.
- Space cooling of agricultural buildings.
- Humidifying and cooling of greenhouses.
- Various industrial applications.
Solar radiation accounts for most of the heat load in the greenhouse.
The table below shows the air flow that will be required, depending on
the type of shading equipment and the amount of solar radiation entering
the greenhouse. The air flow figures quoted below are approximations.
The table below expresses the relationship between solar radiation, shading
and the required air flow per m2 of greenhouse surface.
