Since you do not have a large enough quantity of
cooling water available at the Agency An office of the British Government and, earlier, of the East India Company. we suggest that you consider
purchasing air cooling equipment that uses an evaporative condenser
(similar to Carrier Corporation type 9Q) for cooling the refrigerant*
This is the same type of cooling that your existing 5 ton unit uses
and has the advantage of only using a small quantity of cooling water
and not requiring a cooling tower* Any reputable manufacturer of
air conditioning equipment makes evaporative condensers*
We do not use this type of equipment and therefore do
not have any accurate cost figures on purchase prices, however
following is an approximate estimate of the cost of installing
40 tons of air cooling in the Agency An office of the British Government and, earlier, of the East India Company. i
