Air conditioning chillers Success story: Air conditioning for world’s largest female-only university in Saudi Arabia

CAREL’s evaporative ChillBooster accommodates comfortable learning conditions in the world’s largest female-only university, the Princess Nora bint Abdulrahman University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The ChillBooster is an evaporative cooler which cools air and lowers its average condensing pressure before the air is used by the condensing units such as chillers or dry coolers. Spontaneous evaporation is favored by the atomization of water in micrometric droplets, reducing the thermal energy required for evaporation from the surrounding air.

Having opened in May 2011, the Princess Nora bint Abdulrahman University has a capacity of 50,000 students and hugely promotes female education. The ChillBooster guarantees a higher absorption ratio and less hygiene problems compared to the appliances typically used in such situations.
