The Delta T Corporation.

The Delta T Corporation has announced the development of Sprinkool evaporative roof-cooling systems, designed to save energy and increase cooling efficiency for distribution centers, warehouses and breweries. According to the company the systems are based on the ability of water to remove large amounts of heat from roof though the process of evaporation. The company reports that the currents systems is the result of years of refinement. For example, Delta T says that spray heads now include molded polymer filters that prevent minerals from clogging the orifice, and lightweight polymer pipes have replaced the coppers pipes previously used. Another development is computer control of the system. Sensors in the roofing membrane provide temperature data to a computer, which them calculates the amount of misting required for each roof section. Misting takes place at a rate of 1 ounce per square foot per hour, with evaporation of 1.5 gallons removing 12,000 BYUs of heat from a roof. According to Delta T, maintenance of the system costs less than for an air-conditioning system. Check
