Designed for cooling fluids ensuring minimum operating cost by combining two modes, dry and wet. Dry mode operation would be cooling the fluid flowing through the copper – aluminum coil directly by the fresh air at dry bulb temperature, while wet mode operation is to modify the air humidity to achieve a cooler air to cool down the process fluid, thus, getting significant savings in energy consumption.
“Power Saving Mode”, especially designed for those processes where the energy consumption takes priority to water consumes. As the dry temperature increases throughout the day, the fan will increase its speed to dissipate the required power, up to the point where, in order to reduce power consumption, the machine begin to moisturize the adiabatic cooling panels and due to that, the intake air will be cooler for cooling the copper- aluminum coils and, therefore the speed and consumption of the fans go down drastically. The water consumption is only necessary in high temperature seasons; the annual water consumption is very low. In addition, during the cold season, adiabatic cooling panels of the machine could be removed reducing the pressure drop of the air to get additional energy savings.
“Water saving mode”, designed for areas where water is scarce and its cost is high. In this mode the water will not enter until, with the fan rotating at 100%, the equipment is not capable of reaching the desired temperature with ambient air. Only at that moment, the machine will begin to wet the adiabatic cooling panels, obtaining this way a cooler air intake, which will be able to get the above mention desired temperature.
