New system uses cooling properties of water to lower inlet air temperature by up to 20°C
Cooling systems operating outside design parameters typically run an increased risk of breakdowns, higher energy costs and lower operational efficiency. Trane, one of the leading global providers of indoor comfort systems and solutions and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, introduces Adiabatic Cooling to help building owners and facility managers achieve optimal operating performance and energy savings.
Trane Adiabatic Cooling improves heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system reliability and efficiency by decreasing the temperature of the air entering the coil. The air temperature reduction generated by Adiabatic Cooling can reach up to 20° C. A mere 10°C temperature drop generates an average of 13 per cent reduction in power consumption, delivering immediate cost savings and environmental benefits.
The Adiabatic Cooling concept uses the cooling properties of water by intermittently evaporating water on a large mesh in front of the coils, while preventing the water from actually reaching the coil. As a result, the air temperature drops before it reaches the condenser.
Adiabatic Cooling directly contributes to HVAC efficiency, helping the system maintain full load even during peak season. Occupant comfort increases as the system operates at full capacity at all times, regardless of the ambient conditions.
