Description

Evaporative pads are porous pads that are mounted on the sidewall of a building, wet with water, either by running water down it from the top or by spraying water on it with nozzles, and then air is drawn through the pad. This process, called evaporative cooling, uses heat in the air to evaporate water, thereby reducing the air temperature but increasing the humidity.
