Experimental study of centrifugal humidifier fitted in an industrial shed located in tropical climates
Senthilkumar K., Srinivasan P.S.S.
An evaporative cooling system based on centrifugal humidification technique
is proposed for large industrial spaces. In this system, the evaporation rate
is improved by splitting the water into fine micronisers by impinging it onto
the stationery strips. The various parameters influencing the rate of
evaporation are identified. The effect of mass flow rate of water, disc speed
and mass flow rate of air on space cooling and humidifier efficiency is
studied experimentally and plotted with respect to time. The studies indicate
that medium mass flow rate of water, higher disc speed and medium mass flow
rate of air are preferable in reducing the dry bulb temperature of room and
for increasing humidifier efficiency.
