Indirect evaporative cooling: Stulz Air Technology Systems
Mission critical cooling manufacturer Stulz Air Technology Systems announced the launch of new indirect evaporative cooling equipment (IeCE) that uses the latest technology to provide high efficiency environmental control solutions for data centers. According to the company, the Stulz IeCE is designed to minimize costly mechanical cooling by optimizing the use of outside air and the evaporation of water wherever possible. The company also claims it is possible to achieve a pPUE of 1.03 under ideal environmental conditions. The IeCE systems are intended as centralized cooling solutions that are located outside the conditioned space, freeing up valuable square footage within the data center. They are designed to provide efficient and continuous temperature control 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Indirect evaporative cooling takes advantage of the cooling potential from outside air without introducing contaminants or humidity into the data center. A plate heat exchanger isolates the supply air from the outside air and the evaporation of water is used for cooling.
