they have multiple names, pretty simple system -- you dribble water through a mesh-net filter (it honestly looks like a quarter-inch thickness of loosely-packed ramen) and pull air across the filter via a squirrel-cage fan. Evaporation causes the air to lose heat as it passes, and the saturated filter eliminates a fair amount of dust, too. A float valve connected to a water supply keeps the cooler's reservoir full.
