Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2008151377A1] A moisture recirculation system for evaporatively cooling air, the system including a moisture distribution arrangement (148, 150) which, in use, distributes moisture to an upper portion of moisture absorbent material (135, 140); a trough (155, 160) disposed below the lower most portion of the moisture absorbent material (135, 140) for initially collecting moisture run-off; a sump (165) in fluid communication with the trough (155, 160) for collecting and storing said run-off; and a pump (145) in fluid communication with the sump (165) which, in use, transfers moisture from the sump (165) to the moisture absorbent material (135, 140).
