MOBILE EVAPORATIVE COOLERS
1. What is Mobile MasterCool ?
Why Evaporative Cooling?
Evaporative cooling is cool the way nature intended, like the cooling sensation
Mobile MasterCool is a line of completely portable evaporative coolers that require no installation or wiring. This high-velocity, high-efficiency line of

2. How will Mobile MasterCool save me money?
using a blower or fan. As the water evaporates, it takes heat with it, resulting in
the discharge of air that is up to 30 degrees cooler.
First, Mobile MasterCool saves you money by putting cool air exactly where you need it. Spot cooling saves you money because you're not cooling your
entire facility. Second, keeping employees cool helps reduce the risk of heat exhaustion or fatigue and the potential for lost work time, workers'
Isn't Evaporative Cooling just for dry desert climates?
compensation costs for heat-related illness and can help increase productivity.
While evaporative cooling is especially suited to dry desert climates, it is also
effective in more humid areas. As temperatures rise throughout the day,
3. Where should a mobile cooler be placed within a space?
relative humidity levels drop. Usually by midday, humidity levels have dropped
The cooler should be placed where there is plenty of fresh air and it is best positioned adjacent to an external door (or open window) with additional

4. How much maintenance does a mobile cooler require?
Temperature drop possible (degrees of cooling):
• Airports • Assembly Lines • Athletic Events • Auto Body Shops • Auto Repair
Minimal. We recommend emptying the water reservoir once a week to reduce scale or mineral deposits on the pad. Periodically during extended periods
of use, or at least once per year depending on the usage, it is important to perform some simple cleaning to maintain its efficiency. This involves cleaning

6. How do evaporative coolers save energy?
On average, an evaporative cooler consumes about one-fourth of the electrical energy required to operate a refrigerated air conditioning unit. As an
example, to cool approximately 2,400 sq. ft.(the average size of a home in the U.S.), a refrigeration unit would require three electric motors with a
combined horsepower of 3 ½. To cool the same space, a MasterCool unit would only require a ¾ horsepower motor, drawing only 11.3 amps.
