Providing guidance to design engineers and contractors, this book illustrates in full detail how operational savings of 50 to 75 percent can be achieved with evaporative cooling technologies compared to equivalent electric-based systems. Thorough in scope, the book addresses the technical aspects of evaporative cooling, as well as a broad range of specific commercial and industrial applications. Topics include cost analysis, technology and equipment options, application guidelines, and operational and performance characteristics. The third edition adds a new chapter which shows how evaporative cooling can be integrated into large-scale HVAC systems, with discussions of achievable savings, maintenance costs, cooling tower and finned coil indirect cooling, wet bulb economizers, precooling condensed air, makeup air and return air, humidity control, and more, including sample calculations as well as demonstration and engineering data.
