How does Fancom pad cooling work?
The pad cooling system utilises the cooling effect produced by water evaporating in warm outside air. The incoming air is drawn through a plastic pad, which is kept wet, installed in front of the air inlet. A pipe above the pad distributes the water flow evenly so the entire surface area of the pad is moistened. As the water passes through the cooling pad, it will partially evaporate. During this evaporation process, heat is extracted from the air, lowering its temperature. At the base of the pad, the water is collected in a chute and circulated for reuse.
The pad cooling system can easily be applied in combination with Fancom's climate systems for pig and poultry houses.
