What Advantages Does Evaporative Cooling Have For The Manufacturing Industry?

Evaporative cooling is gradually being adopted by modern food processing plants as an alternative to traditional air conditioning systems. Evaporative cooling offers many benefits, including improved energy efficiency, better air quality, a lower initial purchase, installation, maintenance, and cost savings.

We have compiled this blog based on our extensive knowledge and years of experience in food manufacturing.

How Does Evaporative Cooling Work?

Evaporative cooling mimics the natural cooling process by evaporation and provides a steady supply of fresh air to your facility. Evaporative coolers move water through a saturated cooling medium while drawing air over its surface.

Evaporative cooling can be done in two ways: direct or indirect. The latter, in contrast to the first, does not introduce moisture into indoor environments.

What Advantages Does Evaporative Cooling Have?

Evaporative cooling can be one of three main air conditioning methods. This technique is relatively new in the United Kingdom. We were the first to introduce evaporative cooling technology on the market. This has led to a steady increase in its popularity over the years as we adapt and improve the systems to our northern climate.

Evaporative cooling pads are especially useful in places where temperatures are high and humidity is low. They're also popular in warehouses, car factories, and other places where large areas need to be kept cool but not too cold. 

Energy Conservation

Evaporative coolers have a significant advantage over conventional air conditioning systems in terms of their lower operating costs. You can save up to 80% on cooling costs by using an evaporative cooling system that is well-designed and customized.

Pure Air

Evaporative cooling systems work best when only a small amount of outside air is passing through the area where they are installed. This allows for 100 percent fresh air to enter the environment. It also reduces indoor pollution and poor indoor air quality, which is a problem that is often overlooked in the food and beverage industry. The UV filtration devices prevent pollen and bacterial contamination from outside.

Allows For Open Windows And Doors

Evaporative cooling, unlike conventional cooling systems, requires constant airflow in order to work. This means that your facilities will always have fresh, clean air.

Reduced Upfront And Ongoing Expenses

Evaporative cooling offers operational savings of up to 80 percent per annum, as well as a low initial capital investment cost. Because they are simpler than traditional cooling systems, evaporative cooling units can be installed and maintained at a lower cost.

The standard evaporative cooler may be as much as 50% cheaper. These numbers sound great, but you need to ensure that your provider has considered your specific environmental conditions and informed you about the potential risks and operational efficiency of your evaporative cooling solution.

Environmentally Responsible

Traditional air conditioners are becoming more expensive due to stricter carbon emission limits and phase-out programs that aim to eliminate specific greenhouse gas emissions. Evaporative cooling is an eco-friendly method that uses minimal electricity and water and has no adverse impact on the environment. Evaporative cooling units can use up to 10% less energy than traditional cooling systems. A combination of indirect and direct evaporative cooling systems could produce 680W per kilogram of evaporated water.
