A new R&D center with a challenging product testing environment needed to be not only compact and reliable, but also had to be energy efficient to contribute points to LEED® Platinum certification.

Nortek Air Solutions brand Mammoth pioneered the use of evaporative condensers in commercial HVAC applications more than 40 years ago and has used this innovative technology in products to significantly reduce the amount of mechanical cooling needed and, therefore, lower energy costs.
Evaporative condensers use the cooling effect of evaporation to improve the heat rejection process. Water is sprayed over the condensing coil from above while air is simultaneously blown up through the coil from below to naturally lower the condensing temperature. The lower condensing temperature reduces the compressor workload.
As a result, your system operates more efficiently and uses far less energy than air cooled alternatives. In fact, the reduced compressor kW draw (25-30%) coupled with demand charge savings (up to 30% of a utility bill in some cases) can result in operating cost savings of more than 40% versus air cooled condensers.
Evaporative condensing and our unique evaporative condenser design offers a number of benefits, including:
Environmental sustainability. Advanced water-treatment options, including chemical-free systems, are environmentally friendly and can help you qualify for LEED® points.
