SELAE Ecooling

 

Background and challenges

After completing the Madrid based SLT DPC upgrade, we were challenged to implement an efficient and environmentally friendly climate control system that would also have the lowest consumption possible.

GESAB studied the project to put forward a proposal that would achieve that goal. The engineering and technical teams invested their own time, resources and design to come up with a customized solution, in this case, the design of a direct Freecooling system to cool down the client’s DPC with a capacity of 180kVA.

Besides the challenge that the integration of a climate control system with great consumption saving capacity represented, we developed a “live” installation, thus guaranteeing the continuity of the services.

 

Solution

GESAB developed a solution based on their new Ecooling system, which, using a unit that conditions the external air through a humidity filtering, mixing and treatment process, delivers the necessary conditions to the room’s false floor. At the same time, the system expels the hot air emitted by the IT equipment through a network of extraction air ducts distributed throughout the inside of the room, hence keeping a proper overpressure for the correct air flow.

 

Benefits

The GESAB team developed the project efficiently and allowing for an easy transition from one system to the other, customizing the project to the client’s needs and always looking for better performance.

Moreover, the GESAB patented Frecooling system has lowered the consumption in precision climate control units from 80kW in mechanic compression mode to 14kW in consumption in Freecooling mode, thus achieving season values of 1.25 and even 1.10 in winter months.
