PERLITE RELACEMENT WITH AN EVAPORATIVE PAD
    #4006713 - 04/02/05 11:26 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Spring is in the air. So today, I visited the Air/Con/heating appliance & parts store to get a new air/con filter. I don?t do TIT?s or PMP?s, or cakes. But, I did notice something applicable to them & cakes specifically.

There were several differing kinds of STIFF THICK EVAPOARIVE MEDIA PADS for evaporative type coolers (swamp coolers), in quite large sizes (36X48 inch in length & 2 or 3 inches thick). I eyeballed some of better stuff & noted it could be cleaned by running it through the washing machine, on the gentle cycle. :thumbup:

I would assume this could be used, INSTEAD OF PERLITE.

Try it out, tell us.

This is interesting, as I hate the messiness of perlite.

Clearly, I had not noticed that. Thanks for pointing it out.


I'll see if I can find some of those evaporative pads. I'll try it out, then tell you.

did you happen to catch a brandname?
I'd like to know if it's possible for somebody to make their own?

does this cool the water/air as well, or just humidify?

A pad like that just serves as a media that holds its open porius structure & wicks water / moisture well. Perlite doesnt wick water, but its open structure allows moisture through to evaporate.
