Free cooling is key feature of Airedale Ecotel cooling units
The free-cooling capabilities of Airedale’s Ecotel units for applications such as computer rooms and telephone exchanges can be exploited for 90% of the year.
Airedale has added compact 5 and 6.5 kW models to its Ecotel Indoor range of packaged, free-cooling for telecom exchanges, base stations, cabins and shelters, as well as ISPs and computer rooms. The key feature of Ecotel units is the free-cooling cycle, which lends itself to continuous system operation in telecomm and IT applications. Free cooling can totally satisfy the full internal heat loads produced by telecoms equipment for 67% of the year, significantly reducing running costs and carbon emissions. For part-load operation, this figure rises to 90%. Depending on capacity, these unit have single or dual refrigeration circuits to provide one, two or three stages of cooling — in addition to free cooling. They use hermetic scroll compressors.
