TOPIC– Dry & Adiabatic Fluid Coolers

This presentation will examine the applications, selection, and operation of Dry Coolers and Adiabatic Coolers.  We'll discuss applicable test standards, saturation efficiency of adiabatic media, types of equipment and reasons to consider dry or adiabatic coolers. 

Learning Objectives & Questions Addressed:

  • Understand how to size and apply dry and adiabatic coolers.
  • Understand saturation efficiency of Adiabatic media and its impact on unit sizing
  • Learn about current dry and adiabatic product types on the market
  • Gain insight on certification and industry trends
  • What is the average life expectancy on adiabatic media?
  • If water treatment is provided, can the water be recirculated over the media?
  • In the absence of certification, how can an owner ensure that they are being provided with fully rated equipment, capable of rejecting their entire cooling load at the conditions specified?
  • Can dry or adiabatic coolers function as “drop in” replacements for open cooling towers or evaporative fluid coolers?
