The cooling process:
- The StatiqCooler is a heat exchanger that forms the core of an air cooling system.
- The heat exchanger consists of proprietary plates made of polypropylene. Inside these plates there are air channels, through which primary air is blown, usually fresh ambient air.
- The outside of the heat exchanger plates are covered with a hygroscopic layer, which is externally moisturized by water. Due to forced evaporation of the water on the surface of the plates energy is extracted and this indirectly cools the air inside the channels.
- 100% primary air is cooled in the heat exchanger, 70% of the cooled air is supplied to the space which needs to be conditioned and a 30% of the cooled air is derived as scavenger air in a counter flow along the hygroscopic layer on the outside of air channels in the heat exchanger.
