Energy Efficient Technology

Two Stage range of Ambiator uses just 300 watts to pick up 3000 Kcal of
heat from the space requiring indoor
comfort conditioning. The EER
exceeds more than six times when

Two Stage Ambiators save more than
80% energy while removing equal

conventional cooling system. After
years of experience with ventilation
technology, TORO cooling systems
uses selected components to build
the world class, state- of-the- art Low Energy Cooling systems.

En3 Polymer plate heat exchanger


The key component, the En3 Polymer plate heat exchanger is the result of
intensive research by TORO GreenTech India.
These high efficiency heat recovery modules (See
picture) offer high surface areas per unit exchanger
volume. En3 heat exchangers use thin film
evaporative cooling technique on one side wet
surface of the heat exchanger. The polymer surface
has a unique and proprietary nano coating to
provide hydrophilic and bacteria static substrate
properties.En3 heat exchangers use a 150 to 200
micron polymer membrane barrier as heat
exchanger wall between two air streams to remove
sensible heat without moisture permeation from the wet side.
This membrane provides a theoretical Zero wall between the two fluid
flows. Thus a polymer having thermal insulation properties and very low
thermal conductivity becomes a very economical heat transfer surface. The
pure cross flow heat exchangers are combined in parallel and installed
horizontally or vertically to meet the required capacity need and desired
foot print.En3 (Energy Cube) Air to Air Polymer Plate Heat exchangers is
used in a cross flow mode .

TORO Limit Load Fans


Blow thru, Direct driven, Plug flow fan technology (see picture below)
throughout our entire Low Energy Cooling (LEC)
product range.

This quantum leap in ventilation technology has


been made possible through high efficiency
microprocessor controls, efficient variable frequency
control and new developments in electro-mechanics.
product range uses these proprietary fans with
electronic volume control that brings the possibility of
adjusting the air flow rate in response to demand. Fixed set point Low
Energy Cooling solutions provide optimized energy use by blow- thru plug
flow fan-motor installations in Ambiator systems. The airflow can be
controlled relative to any of these factors:

Temperature
Humidity
Air quality
Duct pressure drop

LOpex ® offers a newly developed system based upon a free running fan
wheel with backward curved blades and a self-tracking optimized motor,
which maintains the maximum operating efficiency at all times.
The energy saving advantages are ,Zero transmission losses through belt
drive, higher fan efficiency through optimization of airflow and pressure,
negligible dynamic pressure losses and exact airflow rate for the chosen
application.

It is often thought that single stage evaporative coolers are


cheaper to own but it is far from truth. Two Stage, LOpex ® - Two
Stage Ambiator when compared at a common performance
platform is often lower in capital cost or may be marginally
expensive. Pay back of differential cost may be less than one
season. Life cycle costs for LOpex ®Ambiator are the lowest.

Selection Procedure
Ambiator can be selected easily by following the procedure outlined here
under:
Step 1
For calculating the supply air temperature after the first sensible cooling
stage, following information is required:
1. DB1 -Summer Dry Bulb Temperature of the location where the unit is
to be installed
2. WB1 -Summer Wet Bulb Temperature of the location
3. µs - Sensible Heat exchanger effectiveness for Two Stage consider
0.6
4. µa -Adiabatic Heat exchanger effectiveness for Two Stage consider
0.9
Once the data required is available, following selection procedure will
provide the supply air from sensible each stage.

Step 2
Air Temperature after Sensibly Cooling (first stage)
DB2 = DB1- (DB1-WB1)* µs
Step 3

Final supply air temperature after Adiabatic cooling (second stage)


Supply air = DB2 = DB2- (DB2-WB2)* µa
New Dry Bulb temperature DB2 is available from the above equation but we
need to find out WB2, The new wet bulb temperature WB2

This step requires a plot on a psychrometric chart to locate the new wet
bulb. This can be easily plotted on Psychrometric chart to locate the WB2
new wet bulb temperature as shown hereunder:

As first stage was sensible cooling so enthalpy and wet bulb were lowered
but no moisture was added or removed.
Once that is done and the equation is solved with the new wet bulb, the
supply air Dry Bulb temperature can be found. application engineering
team can assist Architects /HVAC consultants/Energy Manager/Energy
auditors/ Facility Managers/Plant Engineering and other professionals in
selecting appropriate Ambiator models to meet cooling comfort
specifications and while optimizing energy use.

Ambient Design data for Supply air conditions for 65 stations in India is
available and supply air conditions from different Ambiator models for these
cities can be made available to all professionals on request. Ambiators are
engineered as proper HVAC equipment and air handling unit performance
is assured to remain within the committed design parameters.

Unit Capacity selection


The equipment is sometimes considered as another evaporative cooling
unit and selection is based on thumb rules like 3 CFM/SFT or No. of air
changes/hour. These thumb rules have been used by HVAC design
engineers as check figures and should be used for that purpose only.
Correct procedure for selecting any Ambiator is as follows:

Calculate Internal sensible heat loads


Calculate External sensible heat gain
Check solar gain from roof
Calculate Equipment heat load
Supply air duct must be Insulated
Consider Nozzle diffusers if the ducting is located at 3 meters and
above
Consider wall heights as 4 meters max for 15-20 air changes
Ignore all latent loads
As summer supply air temperature from Two Stage Ambiator will normally
be around 20 to 23 ⁰C or near about so it is prudent to consider 6⁰ C as ΔT
between supply air and space conditions to arrive at the required supply air
capacity for the given load.

Example:
Required Air Quantity
Sensible Heat Load 1, 20000 BTU /Hr.
Supply Air Temperature 20 ⁰C
Room Temp 26 ⁰C
CFM 12280

The selected CFM will provide temperatures in the range of 26±2⁰C in the
conditioned space .The space humidity will be in the range of 60 ±5% or
lower. The above mentioned indoor conditions are within the ASHRAE
comfort envelope for tropical climates.
