Get Acquainted with Cellulose Evaporative Coolers!


A cellulose Evaporative (swamp) cooler is distinct from the typical Evaporative cooler (with excelsior pads):

1.The cellulose Evaporative cooler is the latest addition to the series. The two types of coolers have the same functional mechanism, and their only difference lies in the types of pads they incorporate.In comparison with excelsior pads, cellulose pads offer a better cooling performance thanks to their continuous and homogeneous structure that provides a larger contact area between the water and passing air and a better flow of air from the outside into the room. Further, cellulose Evaporative coolers, due to the continuity of the cellulose surface, can absorb particulates and pollutants in the air, preventing their intrusion into the living space.

2. The cellulose pad, or the evaporative cooling medium, is employed in high-efficiency evaporative systems. The cellulose pad is made of thin, corrugated, cellulose sheets with high moisture absorptivity. Moreover, the cellulose pad is resistant to decay and degradation.
The cellulose pad takes up moisture and cools down the hot, dry air passing through by thermal exchange.

3.It must also be noted that, unlike excelsior pads placed in swamp coolers, the cellulose pad used in Evaporative coolers has an antifungal property that prevents the transfer of fungi and bacteria into the air-conditioned room.

4.The cellulose pad improves the function of Evaporative coolers, allowing for much lower energy consumption than with typical excelsior pads.

5.It must be noted that the significant advantages of cellulose Evaporative coolers come at a price as they cost 30–40% more than their counterparts equipped with excelsior-pads.
