Adiabatic systems

The adiabatic system applied to Dry Coolers and large remote condensers are activated in order to increase the air relative humidity that passes through the heat exchanger in order to reduce the temperature and increase the heat exchange. The physical principle is that of the latent heat of evaporation: whilst evaporating the water absorbs heat from the air entering in the heat exchanger and lowering its temperature. ThermoKey has developed different adiabatic systems to be effective and...
