Building Preparation:
A. Location of Pad System: Typical Pad/Fan Relative Locations.
2
The Kool-Cel pad should be placed away from the
fans (opposite) so that the cooled air can flow through
the building without turbulence as shown in Figure 1.
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.
Figure 1
In poultry and livestock installations, the pad is generally placed on the outside of the building so that the
top of the pad is not below the highest desired level. An eave extending beyond the OSEG system is
recommended.
B. Framed Opening and Sizes
Note: The side wall structural members should be left intact as shown in Figure 2.
C. Stringers Wall Mounted or Floor Mounted – 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 and for wall mounted systems 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 or laser level during stringer installation will aid in keeping the system square.
THE CLEAR OPENING FOR THE PAD SYSTEM IS:
A. (Vertical)=Ordered pad height + 2 1/4”.
B. (Horizontal)=Ordered pad length.

3. Gutter Installation
A) Locate the gutter sections and lay them out along the length of the framed opening (see
Figure 8 to identify gutter parts).
B) Locate the gutter end caps and gutter connectors as shown in Figure 8.
Figure 8
C) Locate the Paste PVC Cement tubes supplied with the system. Cut the tube tip as close
to the end as possible to leave a small hole in the end. Apply the Paste PVC Cement to
the gutter end cap by completely filling the groove of the end cap as shown in Figure 9.
Figure 9
D) After filling the groove in the end cap with Paste PVC Cement, place a section of gutter
into the groove of the end cap. Make sure the end cap is on the gutter section as far as
possible (see Figure 10) and hold to allow for inital set up of the cement (approximately 1
to 2 minutes).
Figure 10

E) Using the Paste PVC Cement, apply the cement to one of the gutter connectors by
completely filling the groove of the gutter connector. Place a section of gutter into the
groove of the gutter connector. Make sure the gutter connector is on the gutter section as
far as possible (see Figure 11) and hold to allow for initial set up of the cement
(approximately 1 to 2 minutes)
F) Repeat step E until all gutter connectors are installed. Do not connect the gutter sections
until step G.
Figure 11
G) Care should be taken when working with the sections with the end caps and gutter
connectors installed. The joints will be fragile until their full cure time. Place the first
gutter section with end cap and gutter connector into the gutter brackets as shown in
Figure 12. Apply the Paste PVC Cement to the gutter connector on the end of the gutter
section. Place the next section of gutter into the gutter brackets and into the groove of the
gutter connector. Make sure the gutter connector is on the gutter section as far as
possible (see Figure 13) and hold to allow for initial set up of the cement.
Figure 12
H) Repeat the process of connecting the gutter sections until all gutter sections have been
installed. See Figure 13.
Figure 13

I) Locate the pad supports install them on the gutter assembly as shown in Figure 14.
J) Allow the Paste PVC Cement to cure for 2 hours before adding the pads or end caps. If
installing the system in temperatures below 40 degrees, curing time will be much longer.
K) Install the 4 inch rubber pipe cap and clamp on the gutter end cap of the end opposite the
pump tank.
B. System Top Installation
1. Locate the top filler and attach to the top stringer using the ¼ x 1 ½ inch hex head screws provided as
shown in Figure 15. Note: The end of the top filler should be aligned with the end of pad support. The
screw location for the top filler holes is shown in Figure 4 or Figure 6.
Figure 15
2. Locate the OSEG top cover shown in Figure 16. Attach the OSEG top cover to the top stringer using
the ¼ x 1 ½ inch hex head screws provided as shown in Figure 16. Place a section of pad into the end of
the Kool-Cel system to check for proper location.
Figure 16

3. Locate the pipe brackets as shown in Figure 17. Place the pipe bracket 6 inches from the end of the
system and space the brackets on 42 inch centers. The bottom of the pipe bracket should be at the
top of the top cover as shown in Figure 17.
FIGURE 18
FIGURE 17
4. Locate the front cover retainers as shown in Figure 18. These retainers slide over the top cover and
have to be installed from the end of the system. Install the front cover retainers as shown in Figure
18. Each front cover retainer will be located one foot from the end of the front cover between the
Kool-Cel pads as shown in Figure 18.
FIGURE 19
FIGURE 20
5. Place a 10’ section of 1 ½” pipe WITH THE METERED HOLES
POINTING TOWARD THE TOP COVER onto the pipe brackets at the
pump tank end of the system. Enough pipe should extend beyond the top
cover to later attach a coupling for plumbing installation as shown in
Figure 24.
6. Install a 1 ½” slip joint coupling on the pipe end away from the pump tank
end 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 ARE POINTING TOWARD THE TOP COVER SO THE WATER WILL
SPRAY ON THE TOP COVER FOR PROPER WATER DISTRIBUTION as shown in Figure 20.
7. Install the remaining pipe using the 1 ½” couplings (no cement), always making certain that the
metered holes point toward the top cover as shown in Figure 20.
8. When the installation is complete and the water is turned on, rotate the pipe so that water will strike
the top cover 2 ½ inches away from the wall as shown in Figure 20.

Figure 21
C. Pad Installation
Figure 20
1. Place the bottom of the pad firmly on the drip collector and under the
pad rear cover. SOME PADS HAVE DIFFERENT ANGLES. IF
SO THE 6 INCH PADS MUST BE INSTALLED AS SHOWN IN
FIGURE 21 WITH THE HIGHER ANGLE OF THE FLUTES
POINTING UPWARD AND TOWARD THE BUILDING. (If you
can see through the flutes you should be looking at the ceiling of the
building.) NOTE: The front cover supports should be placed
between the first and second Kool-Cel pads from the end of the front
covers as shown in Figures 19 and 23. NOTE: After installing all but the last two pads, install
the end pad in the system leaving a space for the next to last pad as shown in Figure 22.
Measure the width of the space for the last pad and cut the width of last pad to fit into the
available space. DO NOT force the last pad into a space that is smaller than the pad.
2. Install the pad front cover as shown in Figure 19 by inserting the front edge (edge with small
brake over 90 degrees) into the front of the front cover retainers. Push the rear of the pad front
cover until it is tight against the pads. Each pad front cover will cover five Kool Cel Pads. To
remove the pad front cover, lift up on the front of the front cover until the front cover is
disengaged from the notches in the slot and pull away from the Kool Cel pads.
Figure 23
Figure 22
D. System End Cover Installation
1. Install a 2” x 4” filler in the wall mounted between the top stringer and bottom stringer with the
inside of the 2” x 4” at the end of the Kool-Cel system as shown in Figure 24. The system end
covers fit over the end pad and attach to the 2” x 4” filler using the end cover mounting brackets
shown in Figure 24.
2. Install the end filler (Figure 24) to cover the open end of the top cover and to cover the pipe. Note:
The end filler has to go over the distribution pipe prior to completing the piping installation.
11
3. Locate the two end covers as shown in Figure 24. Each
system is supplied with two end covers long enough for
the maximum length system. Cut the end cover to
length by measuring the distance from the top of the
gutter end cap to the lowest part of the front cover (see
Figure 25).
4. With the end cover in place on the pad, move the end
cover filler against the outside of the end cover and
mark the hole locations. Drill 7/32 (.218) inch diameter
holes at those locations. Using the #10 bolts and nuts
provided, attach the end cover filler to the inside of the
end cover.
5. Locate the end cover mounting bracket and place it
Figure 24
against the 2” x 4” filler and the end cover as
shown in Figure 25. Using the ¼” x 1 ½”
screws provided, attach the mounting bracket
to the 2” x 4” filler. Using the #10 tek screws
provided, screw the end cover mounting
bracket to the end cover. The end cover filler
should be placed against the top cover support
such that there is no gap between the end
cover filler and the top cover support.
E. Bleed-Off Assembly Installation

VIII. Start Up and Testing
A) 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” Section X.
B) Float Valve – Initial adjustment should be such that the float just touches the bottom of the tank
before water is applied. Open the water supply line to the pump tank. The initial filling of the
gutter should bypass the float shutoff and fill the gutter until the water level in the gutter reaches
1 inch below the bottom of the pad. This will allow for the initial wetting of the dry pads.
C) Flush the system to clean out all accumulated debris as follows:
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.
D) 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.
E) Check the water flow from the pipe to insure that flow is on the top cover per Figure 19. 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 and water is being thrown out of
the system, adjust the flow valve until the water does not splash out.
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.
IX.
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.
A) 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, ”
B) During the cooling season, when the pad is in operation:
1) 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. (Shut down the system and remove the 4 inch pipe cap and allow the water in
the gutter to drain out.)
2) Monthly
a) 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 in the filter – replace if necessary.
b) Test water for Ph level, (make up water and sump water) See “Pad Care” Section VIII.
16
C) Start and End of Cooling Season
1. At the end of the season, drain the pump and piping system to avoid damage caused by rust
and impure particles in the water. If the system is outside the building, you must drain and
remove the pump to avoid freeze damage.
2. To restart the system in the spring, follow the “Start up and Testing” procedure (VIII).
3. Inspect all parts and pads and replace any damaged or worn parts. See parts list and
drawings on appropriate page or exploded drawing on page 12.
X.
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.
A) 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.
B) 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.
C) 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.
D) Algae will grow on any surface that is wet and exposed to sunlight. To help prevent algae build
up, follow these tips:
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 to 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 ¼ the concentrate suggested for pools.
E) 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.
F) 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 birds’ 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.
G) 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 steps are taken to prevent this. To reduce the build
up of deposits and scale, a bleed-off of from 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.
