RKF Evaporative Coolers

Why can RKF evaporative cooler produce cool air?
It is the natural way of cooling like a waterfall. When water contacts dry and hot air, it evaporates into the air. This is chemical change and it requires heat, thus water evaporation consumes the heat in air. That’s why evaporative cooler can produces cool air with only water.
How much is the power consumptions?
It’s 230W for RKF405E and 520W for RKF505A.

What is required as maintenance?
Drying cooling element is needed after each use. It’s only pressing operation switch then cooler dry element automatically. Sometimes it is necessary to flush water tank, rinse cooling element or clean water spray bar.

Analyzer & Inspector

What model suitable for inspecting quality of grain?
CTR- 500E applies to measuring the moisture of grain. ES-1000 applies to evaluating the appearance of grain. TM-3500 applies to evaluating the componential analysis.
How long does it take inspection for test sample?
ES-1000 requires 28 seconds for one work operation. TM-3500 requires about 20 seconds for one work operation.
*The work operation time of CTR-500E is dependent on test sample quantity.
Does it apply to inspecting for all of grain?
