Breezair, the world’s innovative natural air cooling technology brand from Seeley International, Australia has forged an alliance with local air cooling experts, ClimaGulf Trading LLC to launch a range of unique evaporative air-conditioning systems in the UAE.
Making the announcement on 10 July, Dubai-based ClimaGulf Trading LLC said that as a result of the tie-up it has become the exclusive distributor of Breezair (Seeley International) in the UAE. With the size of the Middle East market for air cooling systems estimated at 100,000 units per annum, ClimaGulf plans to tap the UAE market in the initial phase before expanding across the region.
Mr. Sabu C. Abraham, Managing Director, ClimaGulf , said: “We are pleased to forge this alliance with a prestigious brand like Breezair, the innovator of natural air cooling technology. Breezair will become a trend-setter for natural air cooling in the UAE, which supports environmentally friendly and energy efficient sources of air-conditioning. Breezair systems use only a fraction of the energy compared to conventional, refrigerative air conditioning. Bringing this world-renowned brand to the UAE reflects our commitment to sourcing the most innovative, environment friendly products from around the world, and offering our discerning customers cooling solutions that helps save energy and money”.
Evaporative cooling technology from Breezair is ideal for hot, dry climates like the Middle East, as it cools air naturally, effectively and efficiently. It is a simple process, wherein the cool breeze is created by hot air passing over water soaked cooling pads. Natural evaporation helps soak up the heat and cools the hot air. The effect created by evaporative air cooling is similar to the cooler conditions found at or near large expanses of water.
Breezair evaporative air conditioning is suitable for a range of residential, commercial and industrial applications, and is immensely beneficial in partially covered / ventilated places, which require constant flow of cool fresh air and helps in controlling heat build up, smoke, fumes and ensures flow of cool natural air.
Some of the places where Breezair can be used include factories, warehouses, commercial kitchens, outdoor Majlis, kitchens, tents, restaurants (outdoor), airports and hangars, bus stops, zoo, sports grounds, outdoor swimming pools and in poultry farming.
Advantages of evaporative cooling over conventional, refrigerated air conditioning are:
• Low energy consumption - as little as 20% of what is consumed by conventional air conditioning systems• It does not contain harmful CFC gases• It improves productivity• Breezair machines are easier and cheaper to install, and easy to maintain
Australia’s Seeley International, the manufacturers of Breezair, and the technology leader worldwide in evaporative cooling systems, foresees numerous growth opportunities for this type of air cooling systems in the Middle East.
Mr. Kym Garrick, Export Manager; Asia, Middle East and South America of Seeley International, said: Sales of the high quality, high efficiency Breezair machines are expanding in the Middle East region where evaporative cooling can be successfully used. Even on the coastal areas of the Gulf countries Breezair machines can provide cooling solutions to many commercial and industrial applications. Our state-of-the-art cooling systems have been manufactured in a way that they address and offer solutions to environmental and health concerns that are gaining momentum in today’s society”.
Mr. Durgesh Verma, General Manager, ClimaGulf, said: “Breezair is suitable for places where the normal air conditioning system cannot work or be installed. Summer temperatures in the UAE can rise in excess of 45⁰C in factories, warehouses and other large commercial open spaces. The unpleasant working conditions could affect the morale of workers and in turn could affect productivity. To continuously use the traditional air conditioning systems in such places would be extremely expensive, and the advanced technology developed by Breezair is an affordable alternative cooling system”.
Breezair has many innovative features including a Water Management system that monitors water quality automatically to ensure maximum product life with minimum water wastage.
Breezair has also developed a unique, highly sensitive computer controlled device – the Digital Smart Box, which monitors, manages and controls all the air conditioner features to provide ultimate comfort control.
Another feature is the Permatuf casing of Breezair machines, the world’s first corrosion proof cabinet. It is made from UV stabilized structural polymer, which is the same material used in the manufacture of space shuttles. As such, the cabinets of Breezair machines boast a 10-year structural guarantee and 20-year guarantee against corrosion.
