Ordering evaporative cooling media

Below you will find videos, downloads, and informations on how to properly measure and order evaporative cooling media. 


How to Measure Media


When measuring media it is important to remember the way media is generally measured. Media is measured 

Depth X Width X Height, in the example photo you will see a piece that measure 12 inches Deep X 12 inches Wide X 60 inches High. That covers one piece but what about a whole unit? Below you will find a diagram of an example of a unit and how it would be measured.

Distribution Pad:

is priced in the following increments and is priced per square foot: Thickness (T): 2” (3” special order) Depth (D): 4, 6, 8, 12, 18, 24” Length (L): 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 48, 60, 72” Lengths exceeding 72” are made of multiple pieces.


Unit Example:

This example unit is measured as:

Media depth (D) = 12”

Media width (W) = 54” Media height (H) = 44”


Media depth (D) = 12”: is a standard dimension

Media width (W) = 54” (next standard increment is 60”)

The unit width will be made up of 4 pieces of 12” wide plus 1 piece of 12” wide cut to 6” wide.

Unit media height (H) = 44” (next standard increment 48”) All media is cut to the specified height of 44” at no additional charge.


Calculating Quantity for Pricing:

Media cubic feet = 12” d x 60” w x 48” h = 20 cu.ft. 1728 Distribution Pad Square feet = 12”d x 60”L = 5 sq.ft. 144 (Note the 60”L piece of dist. Pad is cut to 54”L)



Media Pricing


Evaporative Media is priced in the following increments and is priced per cubic foot:

Depth (D): 4, 6, 8, 12, 18, 24”

Width (W): 12”

Height (H): 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 48, 60, 72”

Heights exceeding 72” are made of stacked media pieces.

(Ex: 102” height = 1 piece 72” + 1 piece 30”)


Note that sizing and pricing is handled the same for all materials of media. Some materials do cost a little extra. The two main materials of media are cellulose paper media and fiberglass media.
