Airedale launches data centre cooling design guide


04 October 2023

Critical cooling specialist Airedale by Modine has launched a data centre cooling design guide for consultants and end-users.

The free evidenced-based reference e-book is available online and Airedale says it will be a valuable resource for those in the industry looking for factual insight and/or design inspiration on chilled water cooling systems for data centres.

Written by Airedale cooling experts Patrick Cotton, Paul Golding and Reece Thomas, the e-book considers the individual and collective components of an effective and efficient chilled water cooling system. It looks at the particulars of chiller, computer room air handler (CRAH) and controls specifications, with detailed chapters on design requirements such as redundancy, free cooling, server densities, ASHRAE best practice, fan selection, humidity, filtration and power outages.

Cotton, Global Chiller Product Manager at Airedale, said: “The design of the chilled water cooling system within a data centre is a critical part of its infrastructure and it is imperative to engage with a cooling specialist early on in the design process. This guide offers a comprehensive introduction as to what options are available, what areas of design to consider and hopefully guide the user into asking the questions they need to ask early on, to maximise their opportunities for system efficiencies.”

The e-book is available now from the Airedale website.
