Building Preparation
Location of Pad System
The Kool-Cel pad should be placed
away from the fans (opposite) so that
the cooled air can flow through the
building without turbulence. Pads
should be no more than 250’ from the
fans in greenhouse buildings to avoid
excessive temperature rise and
velocities. In a greenhouse, the top of
the pad should be near the top of the
crop or have its midpoint centered on
the midpoint of the crop.
In poultry and livestock installations the
pad is generally placed on the outside
of the buildings so that the top of the
pad is not below the highest desired
level. An eave extending beyond the
PDRPOT system is recommended.
Page 4
Framed Opening and Structural Details
The height of the framed opening (A) is equal to the pad height minus 2”. For example, a 48” high pad requires a
46” high opening.
The length of the framed opening (B) is equal to the pad system length.
Overall Height of the System
The overall height of the system (C) is equal to the actual pad height plus 13”.

Stringers
The framing and support stringers could be any type of material (metal channels, square tubing, treated wood,
etc.). The design should provide a flat surface for mounting support brackets and the lower stringer should be
capable of carrying a load of 4.11 lbs. per sq. ft. Of pad. All framing in this manual refers to treated wood. The
framed opening must be vertical and square for proper installation of the system. The use of a chalk line during
stringer installation will aid in keeping the system square. Stringers should be mounted with threaded bolts, not
lag screws.
Sump Tank and Cover
Provide a tank with a capacity of 1 gallon per square foot of pad area for 6” pads. A tank cover should be
provided capable of supporting the pump (#30-35 lbs., #60-50 lbs.). The sump should be set in place prior to start
of the installation of the distribution and return system.
Optional Transition Pump Tank
See “8” PVC Transition Pump Tank” on page 15.
Optional Water Control System
See “Kool Flow Water Control System” on page 13.
System Installation
After installing all framing materials, the Kool-Cel distribution and return system will go together simply and quickly
following the instructions step by step.
Hints:
Framing -
Verify framing installation using instructions and Figure 1 drawing in “Framed
Opening and Structural Details” on page 6.
If framing is not properly installed as shown, the system will not operate
properly.
Caulking -
Where the following instructions refer to caulking, use the Butylgrip caulking
supplied unless otherwise specified.
Packages -
Place all cartons in the areas of installation and open the top of the carton.
Do not remove the material until needed. Note: The packaging slips and
installation and maintenance instructions should be retained for future
reference.

3.
Locate the gutter end caps shown in Figure 4.
4.
The gutter is a single piece of plastic 18” wide that comes rolled in a carton. Locate the gutter and
roll out along the length of the framed opening.
5.
The gutter has pre-punched holes at each end. The end caps also have pre-drilled alignment holes
as shown in Figure 4 to match the holes in the gutter. After applying a bead of caulking around the
end cap, match the two lower holes in the end cap with the center holes in the gutter and attach
using the #10 x 3/4 screws and washers provided.
Note: Use the #10 x 1/2 screws in the two bottom holes on the end with the drain hole.
6.
Continue attaching the gutter to the end cap by forcing the plastic against the end cap and securing it
at the pre-punched holes using the #10 x 3/4 screws and washers.
7.
Install the second end cap using the same method.
8.
With the end caps installed, lay the entire gutter on the gutter support as shown in Figure 6. The end
of the gutter should be 12” from the first gutter support (6” for a five foot system).
Figure 4
Figure 5
9.
To install the gutter,
starting at one end, fold the
gutter into a “U” shape and
push down into the support
bracket. Continue the
process from one end of
the system to the other.
10. After the gutter is in the
brackets, adjust the gutter
so that the sides are at the
same level.
Warning: DO NOT attach
plastic putter to house
stringer in any way.
Gutter must be free to
expand and contract.
11. Install the drip collector as
shown in Figure 7 by
Figure 6
Page 8
starting the outside slot over the edge of the gutter with the drip collector against the end cap. Push
the drip collector down to seat into position going from one end to the other.
12. Caulk the end of each section prior to installing the next section to insure a leak free joint in the drip
collector.
13. Install the 2 1/2” plastic male pipe adapter in the end cap as shown in Figure 8.
Figure 7

System Top Installation
1.
Beginning at the drain end, install the top filler sections along the chalk line shown in Figure 2 using
the 1/4” x 1 1/2” hex head screws provided. Attach the top filler to the wall using the single holes as
shown in Figure 9.
2.
Install the pipe holder bracket to the top stringer by lining up the hole pairs in the top filler sections
with the hole pairs on pipe holder bracket as shown in Figure 10. Attach the pipe holder brackets to
the stringers with 1/4” x 1 1/2” hex head screws as shown in figure 10.
Figure 10
Figure9
Page 9
PDRPOT 6” Evaporative Cooling

3.
Install the splash panels as shown in Figure 11 by starting at the drain end and placing the first
splash panel into the slots of the pipe holder brackets. The end of the first splash panel should line
up with the inside of the gutter end cap. Install the remaining splash panels in the same fashion and
overlap the ends of the splash panels by 1 inch.
4.
Secure the splash panels in place with the splash panel retainers as shown in Figure 12 using the
#10 x 1/2” screws provided.
5.
Place a 10’ section of 1 1/2” pipe (with the metered holes pointing to the slight break in the
splash panel as shown in figure 14) into the pipe holder brackets at the drain end of the system.
Enough pipe should extend beyond the top cover support to later attach a 90° elbow for plumbing
installation as in Figure 12.
Figure12
Figure 11
6.
Install a 1 1/2” slip joint coupling on the pipe end away from the drain and assemble another 10’
section of pipe. Do not use pvc cement on these joints. The coupling and pipe should be pushed
tightly together but not cemented. Make sure the metered holes point to the slight break in the
splash panel as shown by the arrow in figure 14 so the system will have proper water
distribution.
7.
Install the remaining pipe using the 1 1/2” coupling (no cement), always making certain that the
metered holes point the proper direction as shown in Figure 14. Again, each pipe should extend
beyond the opposite end to later attach a 1 1/2” tee for installation of the bleed-off clean-out
assembly.
Figure 13
Figure 14
Page 10
End Cover Installation
1.
The system end covers attach to the
stringer and to a 2” filler in the wall.
Install a 2” filler between the top
stringer and bottom stringer at each
end of the pad system.
2.
Locate the two system end covers as
shown in Figure 15. Slip the system
end cover over the distribution pipe.
Attach the system end cover to the top
stringer using the 1/4” x 1 1/2” screws
provided.
3.
Next, attach the system end cover to
the 2” filler using the 1/4” x 1 1/2”
screws provided. The bottom of the
system end cover fits inside the gutter
end cap. This part does not fasten to
the end cap due to expansion and
contraction of the gutter with changes
in temperature. Next, install the
system end cover on the other end in
the same manner.
Figure 15
Pad Installation
1.
Install the pads before installing the top cover. (Installing pads with the pad front cover in place
could result in pad damage and “springing” of the pad front cover which could result in improper
channeling of the water). Place the bottom of the pad firmly on the drip collector and under the pipe.
For 6” pads that have unequal angles, be sure to follow the Air Flow Arrows on the side of the
pad.
2.
Note: The last pad to be
installed at the end may need to
be trimmed to fit easily into the
available space. Do not force
the last pad into a space that is
smaller than the pad. To seal
the ends of the system, apply
caulking tape to the pipe
extending outside the end cap
as shown in Figure 18. Cut the
tape to fit around the pipe.
Press the end cap firm against
the top cover and wrap the tape
around the pipe, snug against
the end cap. Trim away the
excess tape.
Figure 16
Top/Pipe Cover Installation
After the pad installation, install the pad front cover. Beginning at the drain end, install the first section of the
pad front cover by inserting the short let into the slots in the pipe holder brackets as shown in Figure 16. The end
of the pad front cover should be aligned with the edge of the first pad. Continue installing pad front cover sections
until complete.

Start Up and Testing
I.
Test water - Make up water should be tested for Ph level and soluble salts. Ph must be between 6
and 9 and salt concentrates below 40,000 ppm. See “Pad Care” on page 18.
II.
Float valve - Open the water supply line to the sump. Adjust the float valve so the water shuts off
before the water level in the tank reaches the top of the overflow pipe.
III.
Pump - Prime the pump (#30 and #60) per instructions received with the pump.
IV. Flush the system to clean out all accumulated debris as follows:
V.
1.
Open the flow valve. Close the clean out valve.
2.
Be sure pump is primed prior to operation. Run power to pump and let the system flush out
for approximately 5 minutes.
3.
Remove plug from bleed-off end of system.
4.
Shut the pump off and replace plugs.
Turn on the pump and be sure the water is flowing from all holes in the distribution pipe. Clean out
any holes that are not spraying water.
VI. Check the water flow from the pipe to insure that flow is into the plastic splash panel. If required,
adjust the position of the pipe to insure water flow is going into the pad and not splashing out of the
system. If the pipe is positioned properly but water is being thrown out of the system, adjust the flow
valve until the water does not splash out.
Maintenance
A regular maintenance schedule should be kept up to keep your Kool-Cel system operating at peak efficiency and
to maximize the life of the system.
I.
A visual check should be made whenever you’re in the area of the pad.
1.
Check for dry spots on the pad.
2.
Check for algae and scale on pads. See “Pad Care” on page 18.
Note: Temperature in a greenhouse that is empty will be considerably higher than a greenhouse with
plants as the plants assist cooling by their transpiration.
II.
During the cooling season, when the pad is in operation:
1.
2.
Weekly
a.
Clean out strainer to prevent possible damage to pump. This may need to be done
twice a week.
b.
Clean out sediment plugs at the ends of system. (Remove plugs and drain into a
bucket with system pump off. Replace plugs.)
c.
Drain the sump to remove sediment; usually every two to four weeks. In areas with
extremely high salt concentrates, this should be done weekly to lower salt
concentrates in the sump. (Close the valve, connect hose to the hose bibb, open
hose bibb and turn on the pump.)
Monthly
a.
b.
Inspect the complete system:
1)
Check for leaks and repair.
2)
Check bleed-off connection to insure bleed-off is occurring at all times.
3)
check the strainer from the down spout in the sump - replace if necessary.
Test water for Ph level (make-up water and sump water). See “Pad Care” on page
18.

3.
Start and End of Cooling Season
a.
At the end of the season, drain the pump and piping system to avoid damage
caused by rust and impure particles in the water.
b.
To restart the system in the spring, follow the “Start up and Testing” procedures
above.
c.
Inspect all parts and pads and replace any damaged or worn parts. See parts list
and drawings on appropriate page or “Exploded View of System” on page 3.
Pad Care
Kool-Cel pads are very durable and long lasting. To maximize the life of your pads and keep the efficiency of the
original installation, review the following items and take necessary action to correct any conditions that may be
detrimental to the pad.
I.
Ph of recirculating water (from sump) must be maintained between 6 and 9 (7 is pure water). If
these limits are exceeded, the stiffening agents in the pad will leach out and destroy the pad. Water
containing acids to a degree that the Ph is below 6.0 aromatic hydrocarbons, or wetting and
dispersing agents, such as phosphates can be harmful to the pad.
II.
Hard Water resulting in calcium carbonate deposits on the pad is not harmful, but should be kept
within limits. The well known Longelier formula can help to approximate the Ph above which the
scaling will appear. The help of a good water treatment expert is advisable if any hardness problems
are encountered.
III.
Sodium Chloride (salt water) concentrate above 50,000 ppm (approx.) will deposit salt on the pad
and reduce air flow. Keep salt concentrates below 50,000 ppm in recirculating water and below
40,000 ppm in make-up water.
IV. Algae will grow on any surface that is wet and exposed to sunlight. To help prevent algae build up,
follow these tips:
V.
1.
Do not draw make-up water from an open pond. Use well water or chlorinated water from
city systems.
2.
Cover the sump to avoid exposure to sunlight and airborne particles and keep animals from
drinking it.
3.
Keep the fans running after the pump is shut off to dry the pads, thus killing the algae spores
left on the pad.
4.
Isolate the water make-up system from any other system that may carry fertilizers which
would enhance algae growth.
5.
If algae persists, use a swimming pool water algaecide non-chlorine, chloride (tablet type) in
the sump about 1/4 the concentrate suggested for pools.
Airborne dust and bugs do not seem to clog the air flow passages of Kool-Cel. When the system is
running this clogging washes away.
VI. When Kool-Cel is installed within reach of poultry or livestock it should be guarded. To guard from
poultry birds, a 10 x 14 mesh guard approximately 8” - 12” from the pad and the full length of the
system should be provided up to approximately 3” from the bird’s feet. The pad should be protected
from livestock with a full heavy gage wire screen approximately 2” x 2” mesh and placed at least 6”
from the pad.
VII. Bleed-Off - Since the water is continuously evaporating and being replaced by fresh water, the salts
and minerals are left behind in the re-circulating water. As these impurities become concentrated,
they build up in the pads unless preventive steps are taken. To reduce the build up of deposits and
scale, a bleed-off of 1 to 2 percent of the recirculating water is usually required. This is particularly
true in areas that have a high mineral content in the water. The required bleed-off is provided by the
bleed-off fitting in the plug.
Note: The bleed-off is not used with the Kool-Flow system.

SECTION 5 FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
FLASH POINT:
14°F (-10°C) SETA CC
FLAMMABILITY LIMITS: LEL: 2%
UEL: 11.8%
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Foam, dry chemical, carbon dioxide or water fog.
SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: Wear self-contained full face piece breathing apparatus and other protective clothing. Hazardous
decomposition products possible (see Section 10). Evacuate area. Dike fire control area as run-off may create additional fire hazard and
environmental contamination. Cool heat exposed containers with water. If spill or leak has not ignited, use water spray to disperse vapors.
UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: Extremely flammable – very low flash point. Vapors are heavier than air and may travel along
ground or to low spots at considerable distance to a source of ignition resulting in potential flashback. Burning liquid may float on water. Heat may
build up pressure and rupture closed containers.
SECTION 6 ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED: Remove all sources of ignition. Use absorbent materials to prevent
footing hazard and to contain. Ventilate area with natural or explosion-proof, forced air ventilation. Avoid flushing into sewers, drains, waterways,
and soil. Wear protective clothing and respiratory protection during cleanup. Also, if product is subject to CERCLA reporting (see Section 15) notify
the National Response Center.
SECTION 7 STORAGE AND HANDLING
PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN HANDLING AND STORING: Keep container closed and upright when not in use. Do not store near heat,
sparks, or open flames. If transferring this material to other containers, ground all containers to avoid static electricity buildup and discharge which
may ignite flammable vapors.
OTHER PRECAUTIONS: Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin or clothing. Empty containers may contain residues and vapors; treat as if
