Description
Evaporative condenser air pre-coolers provide an effective retrofit for reducing energy use in air-cooled chillers, RTUs and other DX equipment. These microprocessor controlled systems pass outside air over a wetted surface allowing heat to be absorbed by water evaporation thereby cooling the air stream before it reaches the condenser. Evaporative condenser pre-coolers are applicable to most climate zones, and have even greater energy impact in areas with lower humidity.
