Commercial evaporative cooling towers are an integral part of many industries, including power plants, chemical processing, oil refining, steel mills, and waste incineration, where evaporative cooling and heat exchange are essential processes. EcoVAP™ is currently developing proprietary evaporative cooling components that are purpose-built to address the inherent mechanical, operational, and chemical challenges associated with these large, expensive, and dynamic systems. EcoVAP Evaporative Matrix™ (EM) media fills and enclosures can significantly improve cooling tower performance while eliminating corrosion, fouling, scaling, and microbiological growth contaminates. The resulting systems will not only perform better, but also cost less to maintain, due to the superior cooling performance and build quality of internal components.
From the largest commercial evaporative cooling towers to smaller mobile “swamp coolers”, EcoVAP believes its revolutionary technology holds the promise to radically improve overall system cooling performance while simultaneously reducing total cost of ownership. Preliminary research and prototypes infer the following potential benefits:
EcoVAP’s patented biomimicry technology evaporates water more effectively than conventional media due to its superior design and HDPE composition. Evaporative coolers equipped with our media fills will cool more efficiently, last longer, and resist fouling compared to competing solutions. Furthermore, EcoVAP Evaporative Matrix panels have incredible build durability and quality, lasting 40+ years without replacement.
EcoVAP evaporator fill media is made from 100% recycled HDPE resins that are completely impervious to the most corrosive water. Our custom media and enclosures are effectively maintenance- free, requiring only occasional pressure washing, and will never become fouled by accumulated water solids. Because each enclosure is made from the same material as our highly durable media, expensive refurbishments are likely unnecessary, lowering total cost of ownership.
