Indirect and Direct Evaporative Cooling
Indirect and direct evaporative cooling is not a new concept. Advancements in use and application, coupled with component echnologies have helped accelerate market awareness of these efficient technologies. The presentation will review the psychometrics of Indirect Evaporative Cooling and Direct Evaporative Cooling applications. Also, there will be a discussion to address the concerns with evaporative cooling, primarily, scaling and water usage. Lastly, with real concern of water usage, an examination of the perception of evaporative cooling where people “see” water consumption versus traditional methods that may have higher water consumption.
