Emergency Server Room Cooling- The Challenge

Critical site CRAC unit failure prompted a fast emergency response from our team.


Sometimes you just have roll your sleeves-up and get stuck in for a client. This was one of those occasions when a long standing client suffered a critical failure to their fixed cooling systems.


Happily, because we new the site well, we were in a position to just load up what we needed and go. It really does underline the importance of building good working relationships with clients, and why putting in place contingency plans is a really good idea.


Please get in touch if you would like to have a chat about your requirements.


The Solution to Emergency Server Room Cooling

Our main consideration, and our approach in general to data centre projects, is reliability and available redundancy in the event of failure. Even in emergency server room cooling scenarios it’s worth considering, and if it’s a default position for everything you do, even better.


In this instance, speed was of the essence, and in view of the aforementioned, we recommended the fitting of two ACR 80.60 air handling units and CH100 water chillers. By designing the system with two stand alone elements, full cooling duty would be maintained in the event that any one would fail.


For fast delivery, the units are also portable and quickly installed and set up on site. Because of the time of year and the availability of free cooling, it was proposed that full fresh air be utilised with ducting into the building. The chillers were fitted to provide additional cooling in the event of higher ambients.


Given that the supply air was being ducted into the floor plenum, no specific temperature control of the area was required as the CCU’s feeding this common area would adjust as required.


Another key point of a ducted system is that no cooling or condense water is sent into the building. A major advantage when considering a design.


A great little job this one, for an established client that was conceived and delivered quickly.


Importantly, from the clients point of view, successful projects had been carried out this way by ACR in the past and a good level of trust developed. Consequently, this gave the client confidence in moving forward at pace to rectify a critical issue.


Developing trusting relationships important to all the ACR team and drives our ethos. If you would like ACR to look at and design contingency systems for your data centre please get in touch now for the best advice.
