USE OF FOG TECHNOLOGY IN COOLING AND AIR HANDLING SYSTEMS
Air Cooled Condensers and rooftops allow cooling and condensation of the refrigerant heated on the battery surface by absorbing ambient air and then they need low temperature ambient air. In other words, as the ambient air temperature increases, condenser performance decreases. Therefore a lower ambient air temperature means more efficient condensers and rooftops.
İncreasing ambient air temperature, especially the extreme temperatures that occur during the summer cause the condensation temperature to rise and air conditioning systems operate inefficiently. Although the conditions assumed for the region are considered while designing air handling systems, often selected ambient temperature and condensation values remain below the values observed in practice.
Fog system is both applied as a rational and effective solution at facilities experiencing such problems and also ensures the condensation temperature to drop and the compressor to consume less power by lowering the ambient temperature by 5-15°C even at high ambient temperatures calculated.
