Cooling product for industrial & commercial bldgs
DRI (Desiccant Rotors International) launched its new Arctic Coolers for cooling of industrial and commercial buildings. DRI Arctic Coolers use the EcoCool Evaporative Cooling Pads which are highly efficient, consistent in performance over a very long life, self-supporting, highly absorbent and can be easily cleaned, said a company statement.
They allow higher cooling with lower air volume and are over 80% efficient and also provide a 90% reduction in energy as compared to a conventional air conditioning unit. Speaking about the product Mr. Varun Pahwa, Executive VP, DRI says “With the electricity prices and building’s power consumption continuing to rise, energy costs are getting increased and this makes it extremely important for industrial and commercial buildings to select the right cooling option which provides best cooling at the most reasonable price. DRI Arctic Coolers provide this benefit along with being an environmentally safe solution”.
These coolers are capable of lowering the fresh air temperature by 7-12 degrees.They allow cool fresh air to circulate throughout a building, forcing the stale hot air to be displaced out. Unlike air- conditioning which operates with re-circulated air, Arctic coolers operate on the principle of air change and work as part of balanced ventilation system, the company said.
Benefits of Arctic Coolers: (according to DRI)
A reduction in temperature in the work place creates the obvious benefits of improved staff morale, increased productivity and a reduction in absenteeism; evaporative cooling can provide additional benefits-
No negative impact on the environment
Eliminates odours and stale air instead of re-circulating them.
Money saving – running costs up to 90% less than an air conditioning system
Doors and windows can remain open with no detrimental effect on the efficiency or operating cost.
Provides a natural environment and improves air quality
