In almost everywhere, the most common cooler to choose is the industrial air cooler. This device works in so many kinds of place regardless of humidity and heat level. Also known as industrial evaporative color or industrial swamp cooler, it is usually used in factories, outdoor areas or huge indoor spaces to provide the powerful cooling in large scale. Particular in area with dry climate, this device works very efficiently.
How does the device work? It has its own way of functioning. It evaporates the water to lower heat which then continues moisturizing the air through process that is similar to the natural process. In terms of energy consumption, it is more efficient and ecofriendly compared to the traditional air conditioners. Yet compared to the normal outdoor fans, it works more powerfully.

However, it also has some disadvantages like being depending on ambient humidity for the device to optimally perform and requires good natural ventilation for optimal operation.
- External evaporative coolers
This next type is another common industrial evaporative cooler that consist of several kinds including the down discharge cooler, slide discharge cooler and wall or window mounted air cooler. Its advantages include being able to cool outside air and cover larger areas compared to the portable cooler. Moreover, it is also effective in cost operation.
Effectiveness of Evaporative Cooling

When functioning in such area, it uses the outdoor air heat to trigger the process of evaporative. In other words, some factors affect the efficiency of the device. The factors include temperature levels and overall humidity. Although its effectiveness may get affected, it can still work pretty powerful.
