Evaporative Cooling

Definition - What does Evaporative Cooling mean?

Evaporative cooling is a type of environment cooling techniques that cools the surrounding air using water evaporation technique. It is used in data center and large IT facilities to provide air cooling / conditioning services.

Evaporative cooling is also known as swamp cooling, desert cooling and wet air cooling.

Techopedia explains Evaporative Cooling

Evaporative cooling is one of the simplest and eco-friendly modes of providing environmental cooling within data center facilities.

Evaporative cooling works when water is pumped onto a cooling pad until it’s completely wet. A fan near the cooling pad draws air around the cooling pad and blows it out in the environment / surroundings.

The evaporative cooling technique utilizes less energy than other data center cooling techniques, in providing air conditioning services.
