Well, we are turning into International delight. Welcome.

We deal with Fiberglass Trailers, and most are made in the US and Canada....thus they have appliances made in these countries. I am not sure what your "US version entails, maybe someone has seen one.... but...

I am doubting that anyone here has experience with your specific unit.

Good luck.

Gohkan;

The Placooler made by Great Plains Industries (defunct) is an evapourative cooler. Common name is a "swamp cooler". Try an internet search with that name.

They are only really effective when the air is very dry, since it removes heat from the air by evaourating water. If the air is very humid, watewr cannot be evapourated, and no cooling is accomplished.

Air is plenty dry away from cities in Turkey! Swamp cooler should be great there.

Gohkann,

Great plains has a web site, they no longer seem to make the cooler BUT maybe if you contact them they could tell you who they sold that product to, or if you ask for the oldest employee they have maybe you can get some good info.
By the way that's some really nice rebuilding work you did.
Evaporative coolers are just a fan blowing over a small waterfall. I am pretty sure after seeing your work so far you will be able to fashion something that will do the job.


Good luck to you, and let us know how it all works out.

P.S. We all love pictures.

Sorry I can't help but I wanted to tell you this. I lived in your wonderful country for 2 years in Izmir and loved every minute of it. A Turk friend of mine that ownes a camping equipment company (Factory) took my Coleman camp stove apart to back engineer it so if you see knock off cook stoves, you know where they came fron.

Good luck in finding your part.

http://www.turbokool.com/ this link leads to the present company who your company I think evolved into as the present survivors/producers of this technology...the principles of operation in their designs are the same as yours...they are using a spinning cone to draw up water, creating a mist of that water via centrifugal force to be eventually blown into the cooled space via an air draft from a common fan at the end of a common motor shaft attached to the cone....by the way... Welcome

I have looked closer at the pics you have on your link...I saw this model running around in Arizona 20 or 25 years ago...the pump was used on the spining disk...I remember I think that the link I gave you earlier is still the people who started it and who became the present day company your looking for, there was a war over the patent rights on the idea of the spining disc if my memory serves me...since these were always plastic shells they deteriorated quickly in the Arizona sun ergo few survivors after a few years...it was before uv stabalized plastics... I am surprised yours is not dust.
