In this paper the comparison between the performance of a cross flow heat exchanger in wet and dryoperation for air handling process has been investigated. In addition, a case study of application of thecomponent to perform indirect evaporative cooling in a AHU was studied with the software TRNSYS.Using experimental data and an appropriate analytical method, energy saving performances of thesystem has been evaluated through the entire cooling season for a typical Mediterranean site. Resultsshow that high energy saving potential can be obtained if the component is operated in wet operation interm of reduction of electricity consumption.
