Airedale Air Conditioning, Leeds, UK, November 11, 2015
British cooling systems specialist, Airedale International, returns to this year’s DatacenterDynamics Converged (ExCel London 18 & 19 November 2015, Stand 424) with more innovations in cooling and even more trophies to its credit.
A big pull to the stand will be the opportunity to see the manufacturer’s new air-cooled, mechanical direct expansion (DX) inverter-driven variant of its award-winning SmartCool™ precision air conditioning (PAC) system which picked up two key industry awards in 2014 when it was first launched.
The SmartCool™ SV DX i-drive (5-83kW) is a single circuit, air-cooled PAC that delivers very precise supply air temperature up to 26°C under variable heat loads and wide outside ambient conditions of between -20°C and +50°C. A unique feature, an optional segregated evaporator coil allows a high level of control over dehumidification and cooling capacity when operating under constant pressure control, helping to manage air distribution and prevent hot spots. Designed for use in high density applications using elevated return air temperatures, hot and cold aisle containment as well as perimeter cooling environments, the SmartCool™ i-drive range is available with the option of high capacity compressors for extreme temperature applications.
With a choice of single, inverter-driven compressor or tandem compressor set with optional fixed-speed compressor, the SmartCool™ i-drive delivers excellent part-load efficiencies, very precise control and lower capacity turndown, providing a highly versatile, resilient cooling solution that can adapt to load requirements.
Another major benefit, the range is designed for pipe lengths of up to 100 metres delivering a great deal of flexibility for data centre architects in siting outdoor condensers, without compromising efficiency and performance.
Airedale also expects a great deal of interest in the live demonstrations of its ACIS™ Building Management System (BMS) controls software which will be going on throughout the show. ACIS™ provides a highly graphical, simple-to-use 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.
Also launched this year was the Aireflow™ indirect fresh air free-cooling adiabatic air handling unit (100-440kW) which picked up the 2015 DCS award for ‘Datacentre Cooling Product of the Year’, hot on the heels of the TurboChill™ & TurboChill™ FreeCool chiller with low GWP refrigerant R1234ze which was recognised as ‘Energy Saving Product of the Year’ in this year’s CIBSE Building Performance Awards.
