Airedale Air Conditioning, Leeds, UK, August 26, 2014

British manufacturer, Airedale International, returns to Chillventa 2014 with many of its innovative cooling products.

On display this year is the award-winning SmartCool™ SD/SN/SR dedicated chilled water (CW) precision air conditioning (PAC) system (11-233kW) which provides up to 30% more cooling per kW/m2 than its nearest rival. Designed to recognise the most outstanding developments in the data centre industry across Europe, the SmartCool™ CW was named ‘Datacentre Energy Efficiency Product of the Year’ at this year’s Data Centre Solutions (DCS) Awards in addition to winning the 2014 H&V News award for ‘Commercial Building Services Product of the Year’. The SmartCool™ CW is also shortlisted in two categories in this year’s RAC Cooling Industry Awards.

Also on show is the latest high performance TurboChill™ (TCC) & TurboChill™ FreeCool (TCF) chiller with low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant R1234ze which has been rated by the International Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) with a 100-year GWP lower than 1, better than CO2. The TCF offers twice as much free-cooling as a centrifugal-based chiller to deliver free-cooling for up to 95% of the year (based on a 24/7 data centre with a typical room temperature of 24°C, London, UK). The TurboChill™ with R1234ze is also a finalist in the RAC Cooling Industry Awards.

Visitors to the stand will also be able to view Airedale’s rack-based IT cooling units which provide industry-leading, high efficiency aisle containment and hot spot cooling, in addition to the new AireFlow™ indirect fresh air adiabatic air handling unit (AHU) which offers huge free-cooling potential. Because the AireFlow™ is an indirect system, this eliminates the risk of contaminated air entering the data centre and removes the need for 100% DX back-up cooling. 

Airedale controls experts will also be on hand to demonstrate the ACIS™ Building Management System (BMS) controls software. ACIS™ provides an ideal tool to manage cooling and other building services, from any manufacturer, in a single, integrated system across multiple sites and communication protocols, providing 24/7 remote monitoring, optimising system operation and improving decision-making. A fully integrated Building Energy Management System (BEMS) module will provide more advanced energy management capabilities such as calculating live CO2 emissions and Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE).
