Adiabatic Cooling

What Does Adiabatic Cooling Mean?

Adiabatic cooling is a cooling process that provides air cooling by expanding or compressing the pressure of air or a substance.


This cooling process changes air pressure without losing or gaining heat.

Techopedia Explains Adiabatic Cooling

Adiabatic cooling is used in data centers and large IT facilities to provide cost-effective and efficient environmental cooling services. This cooling technique utilizes a naturally available substance (air and water) rather than refrigeration gases to cool an environment. It is preferably installed in dry and hot environments with very low humidity in the air. Although it consumes a lot of water, adiabatic cooling is designed to consume less electrical power and water than traditional air cooling systems.
