Our Evaporative Cooling Products
EcoCoolers can be used for a myriad of different applications and have been used throughout Europe on projects ranging from large industrial applications such as cooling warehouses and factories to more public orientated projects such as garden centres, retail outlets, gymnasiums, classrooms and hospital waiting areas. We have also recently become involved with the cooling of offices, data centres and server rooms.
We have also applied evaporative cooling to the specialist field of pharmaceutical cooling and have installed evaporative cooling systems for Merck, Jumbogate, Chemilines, Vygon, Pharmasol, Wren labs, Aspar and Durbin.
In this section you can see a range of our projects which have been recorded as case studies giving you an insight into the requirements of each of the organisations concerned and the way EcoCooling installers have solved the various problems requested of them.

John Considine – senior infrastructure Engineer:
"A successful project that has exceeded all our targets" (100KW data centre with CRAC back up and extra Filtration)
Managing director Peter Knapp:
"At a time when many companies are cutting back on capital investment at CCS we believe it is vitally important that we continue to invest in the best IT infrastructure to ensure that existing and new clients benefit from the best possible service.
"Our new data centre in Leeds is as advanced as any in the world. Moreover, while the Eco Cooling systems underscores the CCS's commitment to the environment it also means that we can significantly reduce our costs which will be passed on to our customers in the corporate sector." READ MORE....
Mark Smith -Technical Director, S3 ..
S3 claimed that the EcoCooling system was a logical choice for their data centre
By using free cold air from outside and using it to cool our data centre we have saved money and the environment!
“Our PUE has improved from a inefficient 4 to a very competitive 1.08.”
“Usually being environmentally responsible costs more but with EcoCooling's advice we secured an interest free loan from The Carbon Trust meaning we could buy and run the EcoCooling system for 50% of our previous monthly electricity costs. It will be paid for in 2 years and then electricity savings rocket to 90%.”
“Their Contractor worked closely with us to ensure there was minimal disruption to our data centre giving us the freedom to choose air delivery methods and the type of controls.”
“S3 now have a system that delivers fantastic savings and is great for the environment too. I fail to see any downsides to the system - it pays to be green!”
Vic Henry – Technical Director Blue Chip ..
"The servers in our data centre require a secure supply of air at the correct temperature to maintain efficient and reliable operation. The EcoCooling evaporative cooling system should give 100% compliant conditions at less than 10% of the energy usage of a state of the art refrigeration based system."
"The site we are developing has a restriction on total power available. By significantly reducing the electricity demand for cooling this has enabled us to maximize the available power for productive use."
Jim Nesbitt - Sales Director Blue Chip ..
"We are hoping to build the most efficient data centre in Europe, possibly the world. Blue Chip is currently seen as IBM specialists however this data centre will accommodate the requirements of all modern equipment. We aim to provide the lowest carbon footprint operation at the highest level of service to both the collocation and managed services sectors."
"Our customers demand the very highest levels of reliability and redundancy. This means we provide two completely independent infrastructures including communications, power and cooling. The simplicity and modular design of the EcoCooling system complements this."
Comment from Jo Dursley at Bristol Council ..
I am so impressed with the evap system. We had a demo of it working at full blast and you could not hear a thing. It is a beast of a machine in terms of the ducting pipes (which will be hidden in the ceiling void) but the actual box is not as cumbersome as I expected. I think its genius.

Comment from Matalan manager at Thurrock
Temperatures in parts of the store pre-cooling were getting up to over 40°C making temperatures in the menswear section in particular intolerable. Temperatures are now 23°C throughout the store making shopping and working conditions ideal. Read more about retail cooling ....
Mazak machines at Worcester had 4 EcoCoolers put in last year in the works - on a unannounced recent visit to the factory the installer called to check on the machines. The manager asked the workforce what they thought of the cooling system and said that this was the man responsible - the result spontaneous applause broke out!
Sir Stuart Rose talking about savings made within M & S and in particular as a result of using Evaporative Cooling from EcoCooling - Quotation from Daily Telegraph Business Section, Monday 2nd February 2008
M&S has saved £8 billion from reducing its clothing packaging and from re-cycling hangers. A clothes exchange with Oxfam has prevented 1400 tonnes of clothing from going to landfill and raised 1.8m for charity . An eco-factory in Sri-Lanka uses half of the water of a normal factory and 25% less power as a result of energy efficient air conditioning technology" Read more about factory cooling....
Quotation by Bill Johnson of Warwickshire County Council on 10/3/09 talking about the server room at Kings House Bedworth where 2 evaporative coolers are installed making 3 CRAC systems redundant
We estimated a £5,000/annum saving on the loan agreement and we are getting £6,200 / annum at 11p/unit, with the server room not operating anywhere near full capacity. As they install more server units the savings will grow. Read more about server room cooling ....
GKL Group in Peterborough had 4 EcoCoolers used for the cooling of their new HQ building.
EcoCoolers were chosen at the express request of the CO who wanted a way to reduce the carbon footprint.
GKL are delighted with the fresh cool environment and find it a pleasure to work in.

Cellbond - project Engineer Oke Anosike says “the shop floor used to get up to 40°C in the summer: now you can have windows and doors open and the temperature stays at 22°C inside. Its amazing: the hotter the temperature the more efficient the system is.”
What did it cost?
It was cheaper than air conditioning by a factor of 4 to 1, with maintenance almost double that. Conventional AC would have cost about £80k but this was £22.5k. Installation was pretty easy too; we just had to work out where to position the extractor fans to get good air circulation.”
Site facilities manager Keith Pemberton confirmed that conditions in the warehouse during summer 2007 had been “beautiful” and there were noticeable decreases in absenteeism and a better working atmosphere both literally and metaphorically since the completion of the installation.

High Wycombe Leisure Centre – Centre Manager – “The Simpson Suite now feels fresher and the previous odour problems have been banished due to the high air change rate that the EcoCooling system provides. The old costly air conditioning is now no longer needed” Read more about leisure centre cooling ......
Barry Mosley, Clarks Group facilities manager sums up why he used evap cooling in his distribution centre in Street Somerset ..... "We required an environmentally friendly and low cost solution to the cooling of this area. Clarks has a strong environmental ethos whilst still requiring commercially sound investments. Evaporative cooling has only 15% of the carbon impact compared with conventional refrigeration based air conditioning and in addition EcoCoolers do not use potentially harmful refrigerants".

Paul Gilmour, Scotchem Ltd -
“We had 1 EcoCooler installed at end of 2006 to service 2 small units where prescription medicines are stored which deteriorate if the temperature goes above 25 degrees. We added 2 more units last year and we are very happy with the product as it is a very good product for the price, achieves good results, and is not as bulky as an air handling system"
Richard Taylor, Facilities Manager, Guernsey Post Ltd.
“For many years we have had a problem with high temperatures in the Letter Sorting Hall at Envoy House during the warmer months of the year. Because of the large size of the hall and that there is constant traffic to the external loading bay, it has not been practicable or cost effective to fit a conventional air-conditioning system. Towards the end of last year we agreed that a solution had to be found that would provide an acceptable working environment and we asked AFM Ltd to investigate. They found a UK company, EcoCooling Ltd, that appeared to provide a solution to our problem that was economical and environmentally friendly. The company produces simple air cooling units that use evaporative heat exchanging to cool the incoming air. Surely the solution could not be that simple? A phone call later and AFM had arranged a visit to EcoCooling Ltd who demonstrated their product to us and had arranged visits to several large installations where we could see the product working and talk to the people involved. We were very impressed with the confidence and attention to detail that EcoCooling had in their product and also with the live demonstrations and positive feedback from their customers. On return from our visit we decided to purchase two units to trial in our Letter Sorting Hall. AFM Ltd provided a complete service including planning permission, installation and commissioning of the units. The units have now been running for two months and all of the feedback has been very positive. They have proved to be an effective solution and are now providing a comfortable working environment which is cost effective and environmentally friendly. We are now proceeding with the installation of another four units to provide full cooling for the sorting hall. "
