Adiabatic compression technology

AKTOR FM can increase energy efficient and improve energy savings through the implementation of adiabatic compression technology.

One of the energy projects undertaken by AKTOR FM in cooperation with its specialized partner (TRIANDROS SA), involved applying adiabatic cooling in the Mediterranean Cosmos shopping Centre and the CEDEFOP office building in Thessaloniki, which resulted in achieving more than 20% energy savings.

The operation of adiabatic cooling involves spraying water into the air supply of an air-cooled water chiller with nozzles in order to pre-cool the air and deliver higher efficiencies. 

Cooler air temperatures increase the effective capacity of the condenser, which reduces the work required of the refrigeration compressor providing energy savings.
