Cooling solutions for data centres

Cooling equipment is one of the largest considerations when designing and building data centres.

Whether rejecting heat from CRAC, direct liquid chip, immersion cooling and water-cooled chiller systems or offloading chilled water systems in the cooler months, primary concerns when specifying evaporative coolers and free coolers include:

  • Energy and water consumption
  • Resilience
  • Integration with site BMS and IoT
  • Compliance with relevant standards
  • Ease of installation and operation
  • Ongoing OPEX and maintenance considerations

Top Features

Energy_Saving_Cooler_Transtherm

Improved PUE

Latest EC fans use only the minimum amount of power needed. Extended heat exchange surface area means that they can be reduced in speed further

Water_Saving_Cooler_Cooling_Transtherm

Improved WUE

Evaporative cooling operation for typically 3% of the year vs. between 50-100% with other technologies

Capital_Allowance_Schemes_Free_Cooling_Transtherm

Greater Resilience

Use a larger number of smaller direct drive fans, rather than fewer belt-driven fans found in cooling towers and many hybrid coolers

Cooler_Maintenance_Transtherm_Cooling

Massively Reduced Maintenance

No continuous chemical treatment, No need to outsource maintenance, Reduced serviceable items, No registration with local authorities

Short_Payback_Free_Cooler_Transtherm

Low CAPEX

Market and project research has shown that Transtherm adiabatic coolers are half the cost of wetted surface hybrid coolers

Short_Payback_Free_Cooler_Transtherm

Minimal OPEX

With massively reduced water consumption, reduced energy consumption and minimal maintenance

What Transtherm's customers say...

Briggs_Forrester_Transtherm

Transtherm’s adiabatic technology is an efficient, reliable and high-quality solution for directly cooling data centres in which the server temperature parameters allow for the eradication of compressor or refrigerant based technologies.

Their designs are based on real time weather data for the installation site and their knowledgeable team of mechanical engineers can quantify any specification decision with independent research and testing results for complete peace of mind.

Mark Mickleburgh
Senior Project Manager, Briggs and Forrester
NGD_Transtherm_Logo

Completing a build of such scale and complexity within just 16 weeks requires suppliers to adjust the design and build of their products in accordance to the build schedule and deliver them just in time for installation to prevent costly delays to NGD and our local contracting firms. The solution provided by Stulz and Transtherm is a great example of how data centres can work with trusted, reliable and dedicated supply chain partners..

PHIL SMITH
Senior Project Manager, Briggs and Forrester
University_Plymouth_Transtherm

We were ultimately thrilled with the decision to upgrade to a new ambient-only cooling system, rather than simply switch the old chillers for a like-for-like replacement; something which we didn’t think was achievable within our original budget.

Commissioned during one of the hottest UK summers on record, the new system has already demonstrated its performance credentials and we are delighted with the results.

Wessex_Water_YTL_Transtherm

With a dramatic increase in digestion capacity and therefore gas production, the CHP system was working harder than ever before. With the CHP plant working harder, the original coolers were running at higher fan speeds for prolonged periods in order to manage the increased heat dissipation requirement.

It was clear the current cooler specification simply wasn’t able to maintain the engine and intercooler temperatures required for optimum engine performance. This was the point we turned to Transtherm.
