Indirect Evaporative Cooling
THE ECOPOWER DOUBLE EVAPORTATIVE INDIRECT COOLER
Our Coolers come in 8 sizes providing cooled fresh air from 1000 l/s to 7600 l/s.
The performance of these units for two typical Melbourne high temperature conditions is given in the following downloaded brochure.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
It simply is a compact air handling unit comprising one RHE, two Evaporative Coolers with water pumps, one air supply fan and one exhaust air fan. This results in an extremely reliable low maintenance cooler which substantially increases in cooling performance as extreme high temperature conditions rise in temperature and will not overload and shut down. Unlike conventional heat pump units. It uses about one quarter of the energy input of a conventional cooler providing the same cooling effect.
The building exhaust air is blown from the building and evaporatively cooled through an efficient EC before passing through the exhaust side of an efficient RHE. On the fresh air side of the RHE heat exchanger (a slowly rotating 18 rpm heat wheel) fresh air is indirectly evaporatively cooled without adding any moisture. This cools the building indirectly without adding moisture into the building.
It provides far more cooling and drier comfort conditions than standard direct evaporative cooling. This process is most effective in dry to moderate climates such as occurs in most Australian cities.
