What are CELdek pads made of?
Celdek filter pads are made from cellulose sheets in a honeycomb structure.
How do you clean CELdek pads?
It is recommended to flush the debris off the pads by running the water for 10 minutes with fans off, prior to starting cooling each day. When cooling is no longer needed, at dusk, the fans should continue to run with pump off, for about 30 min, in order to let the pads dry completely.
How often should evaporative cooler pads be changed?
every 3-5 years
Cleaning your pads annually helps manage mineral buildup, makes the pads last longer, removes foreign matter (like cottonwood seeds) and improves efficiency. For Mastercool swamp coolers, you should clean the pads annually and replace them every 3-5 years.
Can you put a filter on an evaporative cooler?
Most evaporative coolers do not have air filters as original equipment, but they can be fitted to the cooler during or after installation.
How long do air conditioner pads last?
With Aspen or Woodwool pads, you should expect to change these every 3 or 4 years. This can vary with water quality and local conditions. WARNING With any filter pad, failure to replace filter pads when they are past their useful life may result in reduced efficiency/performance of the evaporative air conditioner.
How long does evaporative cooler last?
Evaporative cooling systems were built to last a long, long time. While the average life expectancy is 15 – 20 years, there are plenty of systems in the Eastern Suburbs that last between 15 and 25 years old.
Why does my new evaporative cooler smell?
When installed correctly, our evaporative media products allow complete molecular evaporation of water ensuring a pure, clean stream of air. When new, it is possible that a small amount of aromatic molecules may evaporate along with the water molecules, which could be detected as a slight smell.
How long do evaporative coolers last?
They are each designed to last a certain length of time, likely either for one season or for three to five years. If you don’t remember what kind of evaporative cooler pad you purchased, don’t fret. There are other ways to determine whether or not it needs to be replaced.
What is the lifespan of an evaporative cooler?
Do Evaporative coolers use a lot of water?
Evaporative coolers use both electricity and water. How much water is used depends on the humidity of the day and the fan speed that the unit is set to operate on. A portable unit might use up to 4 litres per hour while a central system could use as much as 25 litres per hour.
Do swamp cooler pads filter smoke?
Unlike an air conditioner, a swamp cooler draws air from the outside — and the cooler’s pads won’t filter out smoke.
Should I run my swamp cooler during a fire?
Dust masks are not effective against wildfire smoke. Run an air conditioner if you have one, but keep any fresh air intake closed and filter clean to prevent outdoor smoke from getting inside. If you see heavy, visible smoke outside, do not use a swamp cooler.
What can a CELdek cooling pad be used for?
CELdek® Series evaporative cooling pad is used in systems where high efficiency cooling is required. It can be used for many different cooling purposes but is particularly suitable for cooling of livestock buildings and greenhouses when higher air velocity is required.
How does The CELdek media cooling media work?
Exceptional cooling rates are achieved due to the design, manufacturing and materials used in CELdek. The shallower angle of Munters® unequal flute design allows high velocity air to travel through the pad without water droplet carryover. The steeper angle of Munters® unequal flute design flushes dirt and debris from the surface of the pad.
Where can I buy an evaporative filter pad?
Evaporative Filter Pads Superstore stock an extensive range of Filter Pads for over 400 units. We sell genuine pads for all the leading brands. Filter pads clean out the air being circulated for maximum efficiency and add water to the air of your Evaporative Air Conditioner unit to cool it.
What kind of filter pads are used in air conditioners?
Woodwool evaporative cooler pads are commonly used in older model air conditioners. Our Celdek filter pads are made from cellulose sheets in a honeycomb structure. Woodwool filter pads are being replaced by Celdek filter pads as they have a higher saturation efficiency and much longer life span.
