EcoCooling www . ecocooling . org Stand N35
has developed a new range of internal evaporative coolers for data centres which provide a coefficient of performance of 60 and PUEs of under 1.2 . These have been designed for data centres that cannot or do not want to have plant and equipment on the outside of their building .
Manufactured in the UK by EcoCooling , the ECT range of coolers are the first internal , modular and space efficient direct evaporative cooler of their kind .
Those likely to benefit most from the new ECT units are existing data centres . The drive for energy efficiency is relentless and operating costs or external drivers such as government targets or ESOS surveys are demanding more and more efficiency . Existing data centres in the public sector are being pushed to find an alternative to air conditioning , so evaporative cooling units that can be easily retrofitted are a great solution .
In many cases the cost of retrofitting external equipment can be prohibitive and many buildings are not suitable for conventional ducted ventilation systems , so an internal unit is exactly what they require .
