Komfort Kooler – Natural Evaporative Cooling Systems
Komfort Kooler systems utilize the natural cooling effect of evaporation to combat seasonal dips in production caused by heat stress. Efficient cellular water media can achieve temperature reductions up to 20 degrees depending on temperature and humidity conditions. AP can assist you in correct sizing and placement, and provide a realistic expectation of the effectiveness of evaporative cooling in your climate.

Features

Precise Installation; Saves time ad money by providing proper intallation every time with NO tube cutting in the field.

Can be adapted to most new and existing production facilities.

Larger trough reservoir holds 24% more water compared to round bottom systems.

02

 

Square bottom trough allows for appropriate float size to ensure the plunger style valve properly shuts off and prevents water hammer.

Maintenance Friendly; No tools required to change cooling pads (no threaded fasteners to rust).

Rigid molded plastic trray with ‘Snap Lock’ feature is designed to support the profile of the trough and hold the pads firmly in place.

Komfort Kooler trough is designed to hold the stress and weight of evaporative systems with 36% increase in wall thickness compared to round bottom systems.

Centrifugal (Jet) Pump; Can be end mounted, center mounted or used as a dual pump system.

Distribution Systems

07

 

 

 

 

AP offers two different styles of Komfort Koolers. The Open Top system and the Closed Top system.

Features of Both Systems

Accomodate easy removal of pads for cleaning.

Offer a wide selection of cooling pads to choose from.

Offer optional trough support brackets for sidewall system suspension.

Offer optional Center Feed Kits for longer cooling systems.

08Open Top Distribution System

The Open Top system offers the grower easy access to manage and maintain their evaporative cooling system. It utilizes a combination of PVC and high quality stainless steel or aluminum for years of dependable operation under the harshest conditions.

Manufactured from aluminum or stainless steel.
Allows for easy access to water jets and pressure checking.
No hassle access to the spray bar for cleaning.
Pre-punched components simplify installation.
Water deflectors insure pad wetting is uniform.
Cam-Lock system allows toolless pad installation and replacement.

Closed Top Distribution System

The Komfort Kooler Closed Top system has been an industry favorite for many years. This system offers great durability and longevity.

Extruded from ultra-violet stabilized PVC.

Designed with durability and ease of installation in mind.

Hinge cover and thumb screws firmly hold the evap pads in place and allow accessibility to the spray bar.

The spray bar bracket and water deflectors insure pads are uniformly wet.

 

Trough

PVC Trough: Features & Benefits

The pre-formed square bottom can be installed with or without brackets and provides better performance, support and ease of maintenance.

Extruded using corrosion-proof, ultra-violet stabilized PVC materials.

Larger trough reservoir holds 24% more water compared to round bottom systems.

3 gallon per lineal foot capacity (44.8 liters per meter).

Allows unevaporated water to be recirculated back to the holding reservoir.

Square bottom trough allows for appropriate float size to ensure the plunger style valve properly shuts off and prevents water hammer.

Rigid molded plastic tray with ‘Snap Lock’feature is designed to support the profile of the trough and holds the pads firmly in place.

Designed to hold the stress and weight of evaporative systems with 36% increase in wall thickness compared to round bottom systems.

Injection molded end caps and couplers speed installation.

Heavy body marine glue ensures leak-proof joints.

Pump & Sump

Centrifugal (Jet) Pump

Automatic float valve for matching the water supply with system demand.

Includes priming basket so the pump can be installed above water level if necessary.

Can be end mounted, center mounted or used as a dual pump system.

Includes (2) unions allowing easy removal and storage during the winter months.

3/4 HP, 208/230v, 50/60 Hz, PSC continuous duty CSA approved motor.

Center mount design for long runs allows system to continue seamlessly (no breaking pad or additional components).

Submersible Pump System

A roto-molded holding tank offers increased water storage capacity. The submersible pump keeps water levels consistent for efficient water delivery. Unevaporated water flows back to the holding tank to be re-circulated and a float level and port automatically add water as required.
