Critcal Design Feature

With the increase in power consumption of new servers and equipment, an efficient air conditioning design for the modern computer / server room has become a critical design feature.

Controlling your server room environment and maintaining a stable temperature and humidity is vital to the IT systems reliability, close control air conditioning units control humidity, temperature and filtration to within tight tolerances. These can then be remotely monitored, enabling an alarm should there be any abnormal temperatures.

We deal with leading manufacturers and suppliers, enabling us to supply and install high specification cooling equipment with the latest energy saving features at very competitive prices.

A typical example of computer / server room air conditioning is a down flow air conditioning system, using a raised floor as the air flow plenum. With careful planning of floor grille / damper placement, excellent close control cooling can be achieved.

It is also essential that a hot and cold aisle regime be employed to give the required circulation of cool air feeding the equipment racks.

Direct Expansion Air Conditioning

DX cooling offers the advantages of reduced initial installation costs and the ability to add further computer room air conditioning units if & when the cooling load increases.

As each air handling and condenser unit comprises of a self-contained cooling unit, a fault in a pump or within a section of pipework will not affect other air handling units. Thus increasing the resilience of the facility.

DX cooling is particularly suited to small to medium computer rooms or data centres. Large facilities however, will need to accommodate a large number of pipe runs using this system.

Chilled Water Air Conditioning

Chilled water air conditioning systems require a greater initial investment due to the nature of the pipework and the requirement of a pump room and associated equipment, however, for larger data centres and computer rooms they offer a significantly reduced number of pipe runs and can offer greater efficiency.
