Need a timer like device for AC

I have an 120V evaporative cooler. It works very well in our dry climate, but the pads tend to dry out in extended use. I'd like to wire in a timer to interrupt the blower motor every hour for ten minutes to allow the pads to hydrate.

Does such a device exist?

Any hard-wired timer that can handle the power required by the cooler can work. If it's 15A, you can find many analog and digital timers that would work. If it's more than 15A, you'll be looking at more of a hot water heater type timer.

You can then set them to turn on and off multiple times throughout the day.
