PAE 30 air cooler

Slim 3-in-1-air cooler for cooling, ventilation and humidification which can be utilized throughout the year

Stylish like a tower fan –
with additional evaporation cooling

Enjoy fresh fan wind and natural evaporation cooling – cleverly combined in Trotec's PAE 30. With this design air cooler you not only opt for an air cooler with an integrated water tank, but you also benefit from the appearance and performance of a tower fan. Whether in the office or at home – the especially slim design of the PAE 30 places a modern highlight into every environment.  

Mobile freshness with honeycomb technology

Too high room temperatures not only raise the stress level, our power of concentration also suffers, and the general well-being diminishes. These are sufficient reasons to blow the summer heat out of the room with the cool PAE 30 and provide for a cool refreshment on the skin using natural evaporation coolness on the basis of the honeycomb filter principle. With its 7-litre water tank, a strong airflow of 500 m³ per hour as well as a humidification performance of 0.8 litres per hour, the design air cooler supplies pleasant cooling for more than 8 hours with only one water tank filling. The clearly visible filling level indicator shows you at a glance whether the tank still contains enough water. When the water tank is empty the device switches off automatically and a warning appears in the display. The cooling effect can be further increased by means of the two ice packs supplied. Just place them in the water tank – ready! Furthermore, the comfort air cooler is equipped with a four-stage, adjustable blower to utilize the device as a refreshing tower fan – if required, also without the on-demand air cooling function. An even distribution of the fresh air current in the whole room is guaranteed by the automatic oscillation function with which the internal air flaps of the air cooler permanently move back and forth vertically by 60°. The horizontal flaps can be set manually in order to align the air current as desired.

Convenient equipment and stylish tower design

In addition to air cooling, ventilation and humidification, the PAE 30 offers a gentle natural wind mode, a practical night mode, a 10-hour timer, a filling level indication and an air filter filter for animal hair, fluff and dust. All functions and settings can be carried out conveniently via infrared radiant remote control or using the clearly arranged operating panel.

Pleasant humidification in autumn and winter

In the cold season the 3-in-1 air cooler PAE 30 reliably supports you as humidifier for generating a healthy indoor climate. The room air, which is often too dry during the heating period is optimally humidified, preventing the sensitive mucous membranes of your nose, mouth and throat from being dried out as quickly. This will help you to significantly minimize the risk of catching a cold!

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.

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

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.

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. 

Well-being with comfort

Whether you want to use the multifunctional air cooler PAE 30 as a natural air cooler, as a powerful fan, for example to blow the heat that has built up during the day out of the room, or as a humidifier to improve the room air climate in the cooler season: the comfort air cooler PAE 30 provides for maximum well-being in every operating mode by supplying additional comfort!

Including two ice packs for even more freshness

Refreshment tip: the colder the water, the greater the cooling capacity. Placing the two ice packs included in the scope of delivery into the water tank will further increase the cooling capacity. This additional boost of freshness can also be achieved with ice cubes. The clearly visible filling level indicator shows you at a glance whether the 7-litre tank still contains enough water. When the water tank is empty the device switches off automatically and a warning appears in the display.

Air filter for animal hair, fluff and dust

The air filter integrated on the rear reliably removes animal hair, fluff and dust that is raised from the room air. This makes especially allergy sufferers and people with a sensitive respiratory tract breathe freely and deeply. The removable filter can be easily cleaned by just wiping or rinsing it.

Timer function

The practical 10-hour timer allows to switch the device on and off individually after a preset time. In this way you for instance ensure at your workplace that the air cooler will switch off automatically when the office hours are over. On the other hand, you can for example set a fresh breeze to wake you up in the morning to give you a fresh start to the day.

Night mode

To ensure that you can go to sleep and have a good night's rest with pleasant cooling, the air cooler is provided with a night mode that gradually reduces the fan power. In this way you go to sleep with a pleasant air cooling and your body will refresh optimally from the struggles of the day even in the hottest summer nights. Tip: If required, the timer can be additionally used to switch off the device automatically during the night.

Gentle natural wind mode

In the natural wind mode the PAE 30 provides cool air with a rising and diminishing fan intensity, comparable to a refreshing sea breeze at the beach. The smooth gusts of wind are especially pleasant on the skin and provide a good alternative to the permanent air current.

Naturally effective cooling principle with honeycomb filter

In contrast to air conditioners, air coolers do not use any chemical refrigerants. The cooling effect is generated in a natural manner. Moreover, neither an exhaust air hose nor any elaborate installations are required.

A mobile air cooler works on the principle of natural evaporation cooling. As you probably know from your own experience, blowing on moist skin creates an instant feeling of refreshment as the evaporation process withdraws warmth. Air coolers work in the same way: in the interior of the air cooler there is a water-soaked honeycomb filter using honeycomb technology. The warm air is directed from the rear of the device through the wet filter and in passing cooled down due to the evaporation effect. The now colder air is then blown back into the room by the fan.

Can be operated all year round – air cooler in the summer, humidifier in the winter

With the PAE 30 you can enjoy mobile feel-good climate throughout the year. We recommend using the slim air cooler in space-saving design throughout the year rather than parking it in a storeroom when the summer ends. In the spring and late summer its 4 fan stages can provide a fresh breeze so that you can enjoy the cooling effect of the cold evaporation.

In autumn and winter the device is furthermore well-suited as an effective humidifier in order to create a more pleasant room climate. Since dry heated air can irritate the respiratory tract, dry out the skin and cause red eyes. By using a humidifier you provide for a sufficient humidity level and in this way improve your own well-being in sticky, overheated rooms as well as prevent colds.

With the 3-in-1 air cooler PAE 30 you benefit from pleasant air cooling, refreshing ventilation and agreeable humidification. For a perfect climate throughout the year!
