One application for indirect cooling is precooling outside air for mechanical refrigeration air conditioners. By pre-cooling inlet air, the air conditioner operates with significant energy savings, the company says. Indirect cooling can also be used as first-stage cooling to reduce mechanical refrigeration run times and further reduce energy requirements.
The company is offering its technology in the QuantumKool™ portable cooler and soon in residential and commercial equipment.
