Specialist cooling manufacturer Airedale International will be launching a new air-cooled, mechanical direct expansion (DX) inverter-driven variant of its popular SmartCool™ precision air conditioning (PAC) system at this year’s DatacenterDynamics Converged, London Excel, 18 & 19 November 2015.
The SmartCool™ SV DX i-drive PAC (5-83kW) delivers very precise supply air temperature up to 26°C under variable heat loads and wide outside ambient conditions of between -20°C to +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™ SV range is available with the option of high capacity compressors for extreme temperature applications.
The SmartCool™ SV delivers excellent part-load efficiencies, very precise control and lower capacity turndown, providing a highly versatile, resilient cooling solution which can adapt to load requirements.
The innovative ‘slab’ hydrophilic epoxy coated aluminium finned evaporator coil and fan arrangement reduces fan power input and airside pressure drop whilst harnessing the part-load efficiencies of the variable speed compressors and other energy efficient components such as high efficiency, EC (electronically commutated) fans. The inverter drive allows the compressors to ramp their capacity up to 120 rps, delivering extremely tight set point management to optimise system efficiency.
Another major benefit, the range is designed for pipe lengths of up to 100 metres providing a great deal of flexibility for data centre architects in siting outdoor condensers without compromising efficiency and performance.
Providing up to 83kW of cooling in a choice of four case sizes, the SmartCool™ SV DX i-drive is available in a number of single circuit, air-cooled configurations with either a single inverter-driven compressor or tandem compressor set with optional fixed-speed compressor.
