We launched our TOWER SUITE with Evaporative Condenser, the innovative software for calculating and designing Evaporative Condensers. Today we are proud to announce the end of the development phase of the second module, EVAPORATIVE COOLING which, as the name suggests, is specific for evaporative coolers, and will be soon available!
Evaporative condensers differ from evaporative coolers because while in the former we have a refrigerant condensing inside the tubes, in the latter we have a mono-phase fluid (which can be a pure liquid or a liquid mixture) cooling down as it flows through the tubes.
Here some screenshots:
The interface remains very similar to that of Evaporative Condenser: it is possible to calculate heat exchangers with smooth tubes (without fins) & fin packed coil heat exchangers with spiroidal or integral fins. In the upper part, we find the thermodynamic data on the air and tube side, while in the lower part we find geometric design data. As in Evaporative Condenser, it is possible to calculate in dry and wet mode. By choosing the various sublevels of the “project” menu it is possible to edit different values. The software contains an archive of the main geometries, which can be edited and populated with other geometries inserted independently by the user. Factors support equations in reaching experimental laboratory data. It is possible to modify the thickness and materials of both tubes & fins, and calculate the manifolds and spray systems. Finally, there is the archive management of single-phase and three-phase axial fans. The calculation engine is able to consider resistive aeraulic elements such as grids, filters and everything that could interfere with the airflow.
Once the input data has been entered in the green fields, together with the geometric and dimensional data of the project, it will be sufficient to click on “calculate”. The capacity of the evaporative cooler will then be displayed, along with the other output data in yellow.
As with all Unilab software, EVAPORATIVE COOLING allows the calculation results to be printed on a technical summary page, with the possibility of adding a psychrometric diagram and a technical drawing of the unit. Prints can then be exported to a PDF file. Simple and fast!
This is Tower Suite!
