Sustainable cooling and heating M&G

Two-stage evaporative cooling

Cooling up to 7 ℃ deeper with 70% less moisture

Two-stage evaporative cooling, also known as indirect/direct evaporative cooling, uses both the indirect as the direct adiabatic process incorporated in the same system. This allows the system to cool up to 7 ℃ with up to 70% less moisture than other (direct) evaporative coolers. Read more information on two-stage evaporative cooling by clicking on the button below:

Evaporative cooling vs air conditioning

A clear comparison between evaporative cooling and air conditioning

The global temperature rise is creating a surge in demand for cooling. But ironically, the more we rely on energy-intensive air conditioners to cool ourselves, the more we heat our planet. Sustainable alternatives, like evaporative cooling, are still less well-known.

This is unfortunate, as conventional air conditioning leaves a massive carbon footprint - especially in comparison with two-stage evaporative cooling. Daily, we're asked what two-stage evaporative cooling is and how it compares to conventional AC. Therefore, we've compiled a list of the most important differences between these two technologies. See for yourself what works best for you:

A comfortable and sustainable working climate with IntrCooll

247TailorSteel saw they had to improve their indoor climate to provide a healthy and productive work environment. With Oxycom’s sustainable cooling and ventilation system, IntrCooll, 247TailorSteel has created a stable and optimal working climate for its employees.

Evaporative cooling and humidity

Evaporative cooling and humidity

How evaporative cooling influences humidity and vice versa

One of the most prevalent misconceptions about evaporative cooling is that it would create a subtropical climate within a production facility or building. Another misconception is that evaporative cooling rarely works in humid climates. However, evaporative cooling does have an effect on humidity and the type of climate does have an influence on how evaporative cooling works.

The effectiveness of two-stage evaporative cooling in different situations

There are several factors that influence the effectiveness or efficiency of two-stage evaporative cooling. These are:

  • The outdoor dry bulb temperature
  • The wet bulb temperature of the outside air
  • The outdoor air humidity
  • Air pressure
  • Air volume

Evaporative cooling costs

Evaporative cooling costs

Affordable and sustainable climate control with two-stage evaporative cooling

How much evaporative cooling costs, depends on the type of evaporative system that is used, as well as the amount of cooling and ventilation is required. Some systems may require more electricity and water than others, and larger spaces or buildings may need several installations to provide optimal cooling and ventilation. Nonetheless,  two-stage evaporative cooling is an affordable and sustainable solution to create a comfortable and healthy working climate.

An efficient way to heat a factory

What is the most efficient way to heat a factory?

Proper heating in the workplace is crucial for employees' comfort, and inefficient heating systems can lead to high energy consumption and uncomfortable working conditions. To heat a factory energy-efficiently, there are a few things to consider, such as insulation, a heating system, and a control system, along with the factors:

  • What is the heating demand around the year?
  • What are the processes and operations run in the factory?
  • How much waste heat/residual heat is generated in the factory?
  • How much is the cooling demand in comparison to the heating demand?
  • Is it a new building or an old building?
  • Is there any negative pressure in the factory halls?

Read on to discover sustainable strategies that can be employed to achieve proper heating in a responsible manner.
