Excool Adiabatic Evaporative Free Air Cooling Modes of Operation

Winter Mode

excool-modes-winter
Hot return air from the data hall is drawn through the heat exchanger by energy efficient EC plug fans. Cool outdoor air is drawn through a second air path in the heat exchanger by a set of independently controlled fans.

In turn the data centre supply air temperature is dynamically controlled by a combination of the winter optimisation air flow dampers and outdoor air fan speed.

Summer Operation

excool-modes-summer
Moisture is added to the hot outdoor air which has the effect of lowering the dry bulb temperature through the adiabatic process. A typical UK peak summer day may have a dry bulb of 35°C with a wet bulb temperature of 21°C. By fully saturating the air the dry bulb temperature can be reduced to 21°C. This reduced temperature air is then used as a cooling medium. This enables AHRAE Class A1 – A4 temperatures to be maintained throughout the year.

Optional Top-up Module

excool-modes-topup
In more challenging environments in may be necessary to ‘top-up’ the cooling capacity with a partial DX or Chilled water supplementary cooling section.

The integrated top-up modules are designed to complement the heat exchangers during extreme summer conditions. These top up systems are sized as a small percentage of the overall cooling capacity of the Excool module.
