Evaporative Cooling Case Studies
Cooling the Care Centre, France
The Fabria Centre in Angouleme provides a community based work centre for the disabled. One activity is the assembly of electrical components in a conventional industrial building. This building was originally designed with only limited ventilation and no cooling.
An environmentally friendly, low cost solution was required for the cooling of this area. This sensitive environment also called for a low noise solution.
A single EcoCooler was roof mounted. Sound level was reduced by the installation of a sound attenuator.
As the air leaves the fan it passes over a series of sound absorbing plates which reduce the overall sound level.
An eight-way plenum chamber discharges the air into the retail space. The grills can be set to provide a direct flow of air into the area or draft free displacement ventilation.
It can be seen from the above performance data that the air temperature from an evaporative cooler in this region rarely exceeds 22°C and never exceeds 26°C
