Munters launches new cooling technology
Munters is launching a new cooling technology to the world of data centers. SyCool ITC offers data center owners and operators an energy efficient indirect cooling solution without the need for water.
Munters Group, a global leader in energy-efficient air treatment and climate solutions, has launched a new cooling technology into the Data Centre industry. SyCool® ITC, Indirect Thermosiphon Cooling, provides an efficient cooling solution for new and existing data centers where access to a suitable water supply may be limited, expensive or unreliable.
Designed specifically for data centers and driven by industry demand, SyCool ITC (patent pending) uses the waste heat from the data center and a combination of gravity and a syphon effect, to drive a refrigeration cycle capable of operating without pumps or compressors, providing remarkable levels of energy efficiency. Initially launched as a packaged Air Handling Unit (AHU) system, subsequent versions of SyCool will include “Split Systems”, such as above-aisle modules and perimeter CRAH units, providing scalable cooling for new build and retrofit applications. SyCool ITC eliminates the potential risk of contamination from air pollutants, as there is no outside air gaining access to the data hall.
The packaged AHU version of SyCool has been designed such that the units may be installed side-by-side with no space between, with all service access from the ends. Positioning an uninterrupted bank of packaged SyCool units along the perimeter of a data hall will provide class-leading levels of cooling output per linear meter of outside wall.
With a nominal capacity of 250kW, the P250 packaged system will be the first pump-free system to market, offering a best-in-class dry cooling solution and boasting features such as HFO refrigerant-ready; oil-free, low pressure thermosiphon circuits; no moving parts; zero water consumption and significant energy savings compared to the most efficient pumped refrigerant systems currently available on the market.
The carbon footprint of SPINNOVA textile fibre is already 72 percent lower than that of conventionally produced cotton. With the AmbiHeat heat pump plant and an energy ecosystem, each produced kilogram of textile fibre reduces overall CO2 emissions.
Being certified is just about passing a test, right? If you can pass the test, surely that is proof that you are worthy of being certified, right? And as long as there are no obvious and easy ways to cheat, surely the examination process is adequate, right?
