Weatherite equipment cools new IT centre
Energy-efficient cooling for 1400 m2 of hosting space by IT service provider InTechnology was installed and commissioned by Weatherite Building Services. It comprises 20 fresh-air, direct free-cooling, energy-efficient AHUs made by sister company Weatherite Manufacturing. The units deliver 50 kW net cooling capacity (N+1) for IT rack loads of 2.9 to 3.2 kW, maintaining a closed-aisle temperature of 24°C.
These units were supplied in downflow configuration, constructed in four sections for support on purpose-designed floor stands. Supply air is delivered via the common floor void for controlled distribution through floor grilles to each row of rack modules. The internal refrigeration plant is only required in extreme ambient conditions.
