Here, the pressures on the occupants are exceeded only by the weight of the cooling loads. However, underfloor air proves to be a good fit for an unusual setting. Take stock of the requirements, then look for designs that can pay dividends.
One of the worst things you can do is note the capacity and replace the chiller. Have the building loads and usage changed? What about motors and cooling towers? Consider these and your part-load realities to create real long-term improvements.
What aspects of bleeding-edge data center thought can I incorporate for leading-edge designs? What is the future of the compressor in these environments? Or the future of a designer who doesn’t ask questions like these?
