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.

Sizing Pad

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.

4" and 6" Acme Kool-Cel Cooling Pad

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.

4"and 6" Munters CELdek Cooling 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.

Glacier-Cor Cooling Pads

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 cooling.

HIGH EFFICIENCY

Higher cooling efficiencies with lower volumes of air allows use of smaller fans in R&D greenhouse, institutional greenhouses, etc.

LONGER LIFE

Kool-Cel, Munters CELdek offer longest life of any pads. Munters has warehouses around the world.

CONSISTENT PERFORMANCE

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!

CUSTOMIZED COOLING

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.

COMPATIBILITY

All of our pads are compatible with our air-conditioning components.

APPLICATION VERSATILITY

  • Comfort cooling for poultry or livestock.
  • Space cooling of agricultural buildings.
  • Humidifying and cooling of greenhouses.
  • Various industrial applications.

MI-T-CoolDimensioning a Greenhouse

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.
