Rigid Media Coolers

Rigid Media Cooler 6

Powerful Cooling

Maximum Efficiency

Whether used to cool an entire facility or simply to spot cool specific areas, the AeroCool Commercial Rigid Media Cooler can supplement and/or replace mechanical refrigeration needs. The AeroCool Series is an ideal cooling solution for commercial, industrial, institutional or agricultural facilities and buildings that require moving large quantities of fresh air. Laundries, gymnasiums, kitchens, heat-treating areas and dry cleaning plants are perfect candidates for energy efficient evaporative cooling.

Modular Wet Sections

The AeroCool Industrial coolers can be equipped with wet sections that have 8″ or 12″ rigid media or the hi-efficient 4×4 media for maximum cooling power.

This rigid media is constructed of special cellulose material, impregnated with insoluble decay resistant chemicals as well as rigidifying saturants. The unique design of the pads, which continually direct water to the air inlet side, induces highly turbulent mixing of air and water for optimum moisture transfer. This process results in cooler, consistent air flow with lower temperatures.

Each wet section can be configured with 8″, 12″ or Hi-Density 4×4 rigid media


Configured to Meet Your Application

We provide a large array of configurations; single and dual wet section models, from 3/4 to 10 horse power motors and multiple CFM outputs. All sizes of the AeroCool Industrial series are available in side or down draft configurations. In addition, the IUP 701 and IUP 800
up-discharge units are designed for specialized installations or access needs. All these options combine to create an industry-leading level of configuration options allowing you to facilitate the most energy efficient cooler for your specific application.

AMCA Certified Ratings

Specification of critical components is vital in obtaining the required discharge volume through the unit. Motor horsepower, voltage, motor shaft outside diameter, motor sheave outside and inside diameters all directly relate to the revolutions per minute (RPM) of the blower wheel. Equally important is the reduction in electrical usage and water required for operation.

Aerocool Commercial Coolers by Phoenix Manufacturing, Inc. enhances productivity though comfort, sustaining energy efficiency and exceptional performance.

Performance shown is installation Type B – free inlet, duct outlet. Power Rating (B.H.P.) does not include drive losses. Performance ratings include the effects of evaporative media in the airstream.

Sheave & Motor Selection

All sheaves listed are adjustable to meet the blower speed RPM requirements for your application. Using the model number combined with the motor horsepower and blower RPM, use this chart to locate the corresponding part number in the far right column.

Motors of varying and identical horse power may have different motor shaft sizes. Be certain the motor shaft diameter and motor sheave bore size are the same size.

Thermally protected motors do not require starting devices.

Motors which are 3 Phase 1 HP and greater, are high efficiency motors that meet or exceed U.S. E.I.S.A. (Energy Independence & Security Act)
