Munters group has announced the launch of an exciting new cooling technology into the Data Centre industry. SyCool® ITC, Indirect Thermosyphon Cooling, provides an efficient cooling solution for new and existing data centres where access to a suitable water supply may be limited, expensive or unreliable.
Designed specifically for data centres and driven by industry demand, SyCool ITC (patent pending) uses the waste heat from the data centre and a combination of gravity and a syphon effect, to drive a refrigeration cycle capable of operating without pumps or compressors, providing remarkable levels of energy efficiency. Initially launched as a packaged Air Handling Unit (AHU) system, subsequent versions of SyCool will include “Split Systems”, such as above-aisle modules and perimeter CRAH units, providing scalable cooling for new build and retrofit applications. SyCool ITCeliminates the potential risk of contamination from air pollutants, as there is no outside air gaining access to the data hall.
The packaged AHU version of SyCool has been designed such that the units may be installed side-by-side with no space between, with all service access from the ends. Positioning an uninterrupted bank of packaged SyCool units along the perimeter of a data hall will provide class-leading levels of cooling output per linear metre of outside wall.
