Refrion has released figures to illustrate the performance of its Ecooler dry cooler in a data centre project for a leading UK bank.
The Italian manufacturer says the Ecooler range is designed to meet the growing demand for free cooling applications and combines Refrion's technology of oval tubing and the PADS adiabatic system, with panels made of sheets of corrugated cellulose to humidify the air.
A total of 8 Ecooler units combined with chillers and cooling water were installed between 2016 and 2018 at the bank's date centre, with the new system recording an energy reduction of nearly 70%.
The table below shows the data performances recorded from the last cooling module installed in September 2018 consisting of two 600kW Ecoolers. The energy consumption of the current system was compared to the one recorded in the two previous years by the old system over the same period (September - December).
