Airedale International announces production launch of Aireflow indirect adiabatic air handling unit (100-440kW) at Datacenter Dynamics Converged at the Excel Centre
Airedale International, returns to this year’s DatacenterDynamics Converged (ExCel London ICC, 19 & 20 November 2014) with the addition of the Aireflow indirect fresh air free-cooling adiabatic air handling unit (AHU) to its range of award-winning, energy-saving IT cooling solutions.
With production launch set for autumn 2014, the AireFlow AHU offers huge free-cooling potential and, being an indirect system, eliminates the risk of contaminated air entering the data centre.
The use of fresh air as the predominant cooling source significantly reduces operational costs for users and, based on London ambient temperatures, could achieve AHSRAE recommended conditions using 100 per cent free-cooling. In contrast with direct air handling units, indirect cooling solutions also reduce the dependency on back-up mechanical cooling required to prevent contaminated ambient air permeating the data centre.
This ensures there is no requirement for internal air conditioning units, therefore maximising IT footprint.
The AireFlow will be available in five footprints between 100 and 440kW, with two separate case sizes depending on whether roof or wall mounted connection is required.
A fully working demonstration unit will be available on Airedale’s Stand No 312 at this year’s DatacenterDynamics Converged.
Airedale says that controls experts will also be on hand throughout the event to demonstrate the ACIS Building Management System (BMS) controls software.
