ShockWave is a thermally engineered alternative to standard vertical-fluted products. Its enhanced vertical-flute orientation and PowerCurve design leverage the fouling resistance of vertical-fluted products with the thermal performance of high efficiency fills. The use of the sheet surface area is improved, says the manufacturer, and diamond tube channels that provide a clear vertical sight path through the product are incorporated. These design features promote mixing of the air as it moves through the pack, maximizing evaporative heat transfer. The product design helps this fill exceed the performance of cross-fluted fills while incorporating the fouling resistance of vertical-fluted products. It is intended for use in applications with compromised water such as power plants, refineries and steel mills.
