In order to achieve optimal performance from the evaporative media in your equipment it is important to make sure the media is installed properly. CoolingMedia.com has put together a helpful diagram showing how to properly install replacement evaporative cooling pads.
The evaporative cooling media must be installed with the sleeper flute angle sloping down toward the air entering side. The rationale behind this is fairly straight forward in that the steeper angle causes more water to go to the hot and dry side of the evaporative cooling media.
A second benefit of installing the sleeper flute angle sloping down toward the air entering side is that it helps counteracts the tendency of the air to push the water toward the back of the evaporative cooling media.
