Type of works: supply of an EcoCooling evaporative cooling system.
Warwick University has drastically reduced its electrical consumption, and Carbon footprint, in one of its IT Rooms by installing an EcoCooling evaporative cooling system
This small 30kW server room was previously cooled using three 10kW Daikin wall-mounted air conditioning units, with each drawing up to 30 amps. The replacement system uses just one side-discharge EcoCooler drawing less than 5 amps at full load and an extract system situated at the side of the servers. The level of cooling provided is the same.
This simple system will save in the region of 54 tonnes of Carbon per annum and over £7,000 in running costs compared to a traditional refrigeration system. Maintenance costs will also be far lower than a conventional system.
Warwick University sees evaporative cooling as a real way of reducing the amount of refrigeration-based air conditioning around its vast site.
Post Installation Survey Results 21st June 2010.
External temp 25°C (warm clear sunny day)
Entering temp through the cooler 14.2°C
Internal Room temp 21°C
Extraction temperature 22°C
These temperatures are provided by using less than 1.5KW of energy. Evaporative cooling is the most cost-effective way of cooling data centres and also the most environmentally friendly.
