We invite you to explore the wide range of resources and research available [H2] on evaporative cooling through the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc. (ASHRAE), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), on-line and local libraries, and various websites of organizations involved in research impacting the design and application of evaporative coolers.

Evaporative Cooler Science / Technology Overview and History

Science and Technology Context

While the basics of evaporative cooler design and operation are simple, there are a number of complex scientific principles that govern cooler performance and life. To achieve the best possible performance and life evaporative coolers must incorporate design features that are compatible with and perform to the limits of these principles.

To deliver breakthrough performance and value the patent-pending AZFlow evaporative cooling technology embodies differentiated design features that do perform to the limits of these principles. In particular, AZEVAP has applied modern process engineering design practices using fluid dynamic, psychrometric, chemical and material engineering principles to derive differentiated features that address the critical historical design weaknesses that have limited evaporative cooler performance, life, and reliability / availability.

The following brief synopsis of evaporative cooling technology and history is provided as an introduction and overview for perspective and support regarding the significance and nature of these AZFlow differentiated design features and breakthrough performance results.
