Evaporative Cooler - 550W

  • Product Code: 1027T
  • Brand: TradeQuip

With its compact size, this TradeQuip “Made for the Trade” Portable Evaporative Cooling unit is perfectly suited to smaller work areas, yet still delivers an impressive amount of air output. Huge in performance, this easy-to-operate unit produces up to 18,000 cubic metres of airflow per hour. It is fitted with a rugged, weather-resistant one-piece moulded polyethylene housing that will not crack or leak. The remote control 3-speed fan forces warm air over rigid water soaked evaporative cooling media to reduce ambient temperatures by up to 10°C . The adjustable swing louvre feature offers swinging airflow and can be adjusted to direct the cooled air output to where it is needed.

An evaporative cooler (also known as a desert cooler, swamp cooler or wet air cooler) is a device that cools air through the evaporation of water. These units are well suited for climates where the air is hot and humidity is low. They combine the natural cooling properties of water, with a steady breeze... to lower indoor temperatures. Evaporative cooling will provide a substantial energy savings over refrigerated air units, whilst the simplicity of the design results in low maintenance requirements.

With the substantial savings of energy and the constant changes in the air, a portable evaporative cooler is ideally suited for area cooling or spot cooling of rooms, workshops, factories, laundries, schools, agricultural sheds, and more. (Previous models include product code/s; 1028T)

Water Consumption can increase by 300% due to 'Relative Humidity'

Note: Evaporative Coolers operate by combining a variable airflow and water evaporation. How much water is used (Water Consumption) depends on the 'Relative Humidity' of the day and the fan speed setting to meet the required cooling levels. Relative Humidity (rh) is the ratio of the amount of water (as vapour) actually contained in the air to the maximum amount of water vapour that could be contained at the same temperature (saturation). For example, at 50%(rh), the air contains 50% of the maximum (100%) amount of moisture (water vapour) that it could contain at the same temperature. Therefore when the relative humidity level is low all Evaporative Cooling units may consume a more significant amount of water (up to 300% more) than higher relative humidity ratio conditions.

Intended Use:

This equipment is intended for cooling industrial or trade workshop/office environments. Best used in hot dry climates where the humidity is low, evaporative coolers are generally suitable for areas with dry summers, although their effectiveness will be reduced during the occasional periods of high humidity weather.

This product is an Industrial Product and not suitable for household use.
