Ecological Industrial Cooling: Everything You Need

In this short guide, you will find everything you need for a complete industrial cooling system for warehouses, greenhouses, industrial plants, barns, farms, warehouses, sports centers, public venues, equestrian facilities, etc.

What types of industrial cooling exist and which ones to choose

First of all, what are considered industrial spaces?
They are all those large spaces such as warehouses and greenhouses, where, due to the vast volume of cubic meters that need to be cooled, air conditioning systems are not feasible due to the electrical power that would be required.

What are the different industrial cooling systems?

PAD panel cooling system

The water that evaporates during the cooling system flows inside the so-called "pads," which filter the outside air, reducing its temperature by 5-10°C. These pads can be customized in various sizes and materials, including:

CELdek Pad

This is the most efficient cooling pad, made of specially designed cellulose paper that is chemically treated to resist deterioration while meeting Greenguard environmental certification standards, improving air quality for both humans and animals.

Munters CELdek Pad cooling

RCP Plastic Pad

These are made of plastic and are more resistant to wear compared to CELdek, but they have lower cooling efficiency.

The Munters WDP System

WDP is a complete water supply and drainage system for humidifying the walls of CELdek evaporative cooling pads. It is specifically designed to ensure even humidification of the cellulose paper cooling pads.

  • water tank
  • water pump
  • feeding kit
  • water drainage
  • termination and wall panel fastening kit

The Munters MPG System

This is a modular system without glue that offers greater reliability compared to the WDP system. The risks of water leakage at the joints due to incorrect gluing and thermal expansion and contraction of materials causing glue failure are common, and this glueless MPG system compensates for thermal expansion and material contractions, allowing the water tank to expand freely within the joints without the risk of water leaks. The advantages of the MPG system:

  • does not require a separate water tank
  • time-saving during installation
  • material-saving (no glue used)
  • reduced installation time

Evaporative Cooling

How Evaporative Coolers Work

The technology used for evaporative cooling (also known as adiabatic cooling) in warehouses, greenhouses, livestock facilities, exploits the ancient principle of Arab wind towers or early clay refrigerators, which produced cool air in an ecological, uniform, and healthy way through evaporation. Today, we can maximize the potential of this technology by employing industrial evaporative coolers that ensure well-being and health for people without causing harm to the environment. The process of evaporative or adiabatic cooling guarantees fresh air, healthy and livable environments, even within workspaces constantly exposed to high temperatures and challenging microclimates.

Difference Between Air Conditioners and Coolers

Compared to traditional air conditioners, coolers use a natural cooling principle that does not require the use of refrigerants and expensive compressors. This results in cost savings for both purchase and electricity consumption, with significant advantages even in the short term. For example, a 3,000 m³/h cooler consumes less than 300 W and approximately 6-8 liters of water per hour. This represents a 90% reduction in installation costs and a 75% reduction in operating costs.

When is it Convenient to Use a Cooler?

Evaporative coolers are the ideal solution for lowering the temperature in places where it's not possible to close the doors. For work environments, the most common examples are workshops, warehouses, and generally cases where air currents would render the use of regular gas air conditioners wasteful. Coolers are also widely used outside of industrial environments and are particularly useful in banquet halls, theaters, conference rooms, exhibition halls, and many other public places. Even in well-ventilated domestic environments, coolers prove to be the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly cooling choice.
The main advantages of using an evaporative cooler are continuous and frequent air exchanges, low operating costs, ease of installation, low maintenance, and increased productivity.

Evaporative or adiabatic cooling: what is it

Fan Cooling: Air Extractors

Munters extractors belong to the latest generation of high-energy-efficient fans, highly robust and reliable, suitable for a wide variety of industrial applications to achieve optimal climate control. The air extractors can be conical or square-shaped, and come in various sizes depending on the required airflow. The motor can be direct-drive or belt-driven, depending on the chosen model. In addition to the motor and airflow, another important characteristic to consider is the material used for the blades and casings, especially if the final application of the industrial air extractor fan is in a livestock facility or any other aggressive environment.

Fan Cooling: Which Air Extractors to Choose

Industrial Air Circulators

Industrial air circulators are highly effective in eliminating stratified heat, humidity, and stagnant air in livestock facilities, greenhouses, and industries. By installing air circulators of the appropriate size according to the volume of the building, it's possible to create a system that generates continuous air circulation, thus eliminating stagnant and humid air, which is the main cause of disease and parasite formation. Pairing air circulators with air extraction fans can increase the effectiveness of the latter, especially in large environments. The air circulators offered by Indors can be easily installed without any issues in any existing facility. As for the control of air circulators, the most reliable system is to use a timer that activates the circulators at varying intervals throughout the day.

Air Dampers with Air Inlets

Munters SMT galvanized steel sheet dampers have immediate control over the entry of fresh air into a space. Munters SMT dampers are designed to be properly installed and balanced with Munters air extractors for maximum energy efficiency and pressure drop. The outside air is drawn into the space through an open Munters SMT damper by means of the air extractor. To improve aerodynamic efficiency and reduce pressure losses, the design of Munters dampers was developed by Munters Euroemme's research and development laboratory. The laboratory's test chamber was constructed in accordance with ANSI/AMCA 210-85 standards. The construction details and air tightness of the chamber were verified by the staff of the BESS Lab at the College of Agricultural Engineering at the University of Illinois - USA.
