Evaporative Air Conditioning Handbook by John Watt

By John Watt

Air conditioning boosts man's potency not less than his convenience. Air-conditioned houses, places of work, and factories unmistakably bring up human productiveness and decrease absenteeism, turnover, error, injuries and grievances, specifically in summer time. as a result, many employers each year cool workrooms and workplaces to elevate summer season earnings. staff in flip locate cool houses bettering not just convenience and status but in addition own potency and source of revenue. With such monetary impetus, reasonably cheap summer time cooling needs to irresistibly unfold to all types of occupied structures. Refrigeration offers our greatest cooling, serving good the place individuals are heavily spaced in well-constructed, shaded, and insulated buildings. even if, its first and working charges bar it from our most popular advertisement, commercial, and home structures. thankfully, evaporative cooling is a cost-effective replacement in lots of areas. First utilized in Southwest houses and companies and in cloth generators, it quickly invaded different fields and climates. In 1946, six organizations produced 200,000 evaporative coolers; in 1958, 25 organizations produced 1,250,000, regardless of the outstanding sale of refrigerating window air conditioners. although basically secondary to refrigeration, evaporative cooling is 60 to eighty percentage is low-cost for average source of revenue teams and less expensive to shop for and function. hence, it climates the place summers are brief. additionally, it affordably cools sizzling, thinly built generators, factories, workshops, foundries, powerhouses, farm constructions, canneries, etc., the place refrigerated cooling is prohibitively expensive.

And even big rigid-media pads, 24 in. 8 cm) thick, cannot easily saturate 100 percent. Denser pads and sprays and lower air velocities increase air-water contact times and reduce dilution but require larger fans, pumps, and wetting units. Furthermore, since indoor use of nearly saturated air can cause warping, rusting, and mildew of susceptible materials, perfect saturating effectiveness is seldom sought. 22 / EVAPORATIVE AIR CONDITIONING HANDBOOK Most new commercial direct evaporative coolers achieve about SO percent saturation.

Fresh Air Requirements Human beings require fresh air to supply oxygen, dilute the exhaled carbon dioxide, and dissipate odors and fumes of all types. Although small rooms, because of space effects, demonstrably require more fresh air per person than do large ones, most ventilating standards are based on numbers of p<::rsons, not on room size. Some industrial buildings, however, have such low occupancy ratios or such smoke or fume problems that ventilation based on occupancy fails, as in foundries, welding shops, forge shops, paint spray rooms, printing press rooms, chemical process areas, smelters, commercial kitchens, etc.
