‘Test-driver’ offer for Trox’s carbon-dioxide cooling system for data centres
Trox’s add-on cooling system for server cabinets, which can remove up to 30 kW of heat per cabinet, is offered for ‘test drives’.
Trox is offering data centres the opportunity to ‘test drive’ its carbon-dioxide-based cooling technology within existing chilled-water systems. The cost of the trial does not include a profit element, and a percentage of the cost will be refunded against a permanent installation. The AITICs evaluation programmed enable data centres to trial carbon-dioxide cooling and measure the cooling capacity of each cooling unit that is installed on the back of a cabinet to remove up to 30 kW of heat. The trial tests the mounting compatibility of the system with cabinets and airflow compatibility with servers. An important aspect of a trial is to analyse the intrinsic resilience if parts of a system fail. The installation package incorporates CO2OLpac plant into an existing chilled-water system. The programme includes full consultation, site survey, proposal, quotation, installation, commissioning, technician support, thermal and aerodynamic assessment, summary report and conclusion. A system can be installed without interrupting the operation of the data centre.
