Air coolers of the PAE series

Mobile air conditioning resulting from efficient evaporation cooling

Natural and cost-effective cooling method

With the portable air coolers of the PAE series Trotec offers a particularly smart and energy-efficient solution for the convenient temperature control of small to medium-sized rooms. Generally designed as 3-in-1 devices, our air coolers produce an all-round agreeable feel-good climate through air cooling, ventilation and air freshening. And the best of all: Unlike conventional air conditioners, the air coolers do not need any chemical cooling agents or complicated installation work – even the otherwise customary exhaust air hose at doors or windows is rendered superfluous with this innovative system.

Air cooling by means of evaporation is a perfectly natural cooling method to be had at a reasonable price and without an external energy demand for cooling. Everybody knows the evaporation principle from experience: Blowing on moistened skin one immediately feels a chilling effect. In case of this physical principle – the so-called "adiabatic cooling" – the warmth required for the evaporation of the moisture is withdrawn from the air. The operation of the mobile PAE air coolers is also based on this principle of natural evaporation cooling: The sucked-in warm air is cooled by the evaporation of the water within the water tank of these high-performance devices and subsequently blown out by the fan. The cooling capacity of all air coolers can be enhanced by adding ice packs or ice cubes to the water tank.

The respectively best solution for a wide range of requirements

With their modern housing design the air coolers of the PAE series create visual highlights and leave an all-round good impression both in modern and conventional living and working spaces. With the various equipment options and an extraordinary functional range Trotec has the ideal device for almost every cooling demand. Come and find the air cooler model that best suits your personal requirements and benefit from the best value-for-money ratio offered by a leading brand supplier!

Increasing the humidity level to 50 % reduces the risk of transmission of viruses

Medical specialists have evaluated research findings relating to the resistance of viruses (e.g. SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV or SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19), influenza) to air humidity. These findings have revealed that the humidity level has a crucial impact on the infectivity of germ droplets. Dry room air with a relative humidity content of less than 40 % lets tiny droplets infected with influenza or cold viruses dry up. This preserves pathogens so that they remain infectious for a very long time. In the optimum relative humidity range between 40 and 60 % aerosols only shrink so far that the salt concentration in the aerosol core increases, causing the germs and microorganisms contained to be killed. This minimizes the risk of an infection with influenza and cold viruses.

Medical specialists emphasize that we are able to reduce the risk of infection by increasing the humidity level in buildings. In this way, increasing the humidity level to approx. 50 % by humidification will reduce the risk of transmission. Moreover, the humidified air improves the body's defence situation by more efficient cleaning of the air passages and an improved immune defence. In modern buildings with a watertight building envelope, central heating and ventilation systems, these limit values can often not be complied with in everyday life without active humidification. This is where devices with a humidification function come in to provide assistance.

SecoSan

Continuous fresh water supply to ensure a healthy air quality.

To automatically keep the water storage tank as clean as on the first day, we recommend using a SecoSan-Stick which keeps the water permanently clean, clear and free from germs or unpleasant odours. The unique feature of SecoSan is its antimicrobial surface with mobile silver ions, which inhibit bacteria and germs upon contact and thus prevent their reproduction. The entirely self-dosing SecoSan ion reservoir keeps the water demonstrably free from germs. The stick thus guarantees clean water for up to 6 months even if the water is changed or consumed daily.

Thermohygrometer BZ20M with air cooler PAE 29

Using air coolers as humidifiers during the wintertime

Air coolers are most efficient in rooms filled with dry air. Just like humidifiers these devices operate based on the evaporation principle, i.e. they directly supply the air with cool moisture. This means that for process-related reasons the humidity level in the room is increased perceptibly. During the winter this increase of humidity is beneficial to the mucous membranes. As a result you might be able to avoid catching a cold that is largely caused by the dry heated air. The practical and optically attractive thermohygrometer BZ20M in cross-needle design shows you at a glance when the humidity level is in the optimum range.
