Since 1946 Alton has been a trusted manufacturer of industrial grade direct evaporative cooling equipment. Along with a quality product you can benefit from a company that is one of the most experienced in the industry in the application of evaporative cooling. Understanding evaporative cooling technology has allowed Alton to satisfy agricultural customers in the deep South and dry cleaners in the Southeastern US...in addition to customers in traditional evaporative cooling markets. Air delivery capacities from 5,000 cfm to 64,000 cfm are available. Customers can choose between cost effective standard cellulose cooling media or longer lasting fiberglass media. Prefilters can also be specified in climates with airborne contaminants in order to extend cooling media life and performance.
Fresh Cooled Air
Mestex has provided fresh, cooled, air to its own factory with Alton direct evaporative cooling units. Even in Dallas, Texas the results are a better work environment and higher productivity.
Health and Safety
The dry-cleaning business is one that uses harsh chemicals for completion of the process. At the same time the equipment used in the facility generates heat. Both of these characteristics create a working environment that is far from favorable. Many smaller dry-cleaning facilities have searched for an economical solution to the problem. Alton direct evaporative units displace the chemical laden air and provide a level of temperature control that makes a healthier and safer space for workers. Dozens of Alton units have been used in the Southeastern US to accomplish that goal.
Poultry and Livestock Industry
For years, Alton has provided direct evaporative cooling units to the farming industry. Whether for greenhouse crops or for poultry and livestock grow facilities, Alton units have flushed the buildings with clean air, provided humidity when needed, and lowered temperatures in rooms filled with heat producing animals. Research in the agriculture industry has proven that controlling growing temperature and humidity produces higher yields in all types of farming.
