The AireWall from Airedale
Airedale will unveil its new IT cooling fan wall solution, AireWall, at the Data Centre World Exhibition in London (March 12-13).
An evolution of a bespoke air handling unit supplied by Airedale for several years, it is said to remove the need for both pressurised raised floor systems and overhead cooling systems, with options available ranging from 170-400kW cooling power.
The AireWall comprises a filter and fan bank, a damper section and a chilled water heat exchanger. The damper section can be installed separately to maintain a clean data hall environment and individual sections can be removed for maintenance. Integrated, intelligent controls mean it is self-regulating and highly adaptive to changing loads and the range has been designed to operate at low SFP to help achieve low installation PUE. Modular design lends itself to new build data centres as well as upgrades, capacity expansions and equipment replacements in existing facilities.
Airedale has developed the AireWall range to be utilised with the new Bluefin fans from Ziehl-Abegg, which claim an efficiency increase of up to 15% and reduced noise.
