Data Center Chiller

Noun
|
Sounds like: "da-ta cen-ter chill-er"

A data center chiller is a type of cooling device that removes heat from a server room to maintain the proper temperature of the equipment. Chillers can use ambient air, water, or evaporative condensing to cool a data center.

Data center chillers vary in shape and size based on how they operate and their capacity load limits. To determine which data center chiller is best for a particular site, data center managers must consider things like the environment where their data center is located as climate and cooling-type often go hand-in-hand. It is also important to ensure that a data center chiller has the necessary capacity in tons of cooling to ensure the given area can be cooled efficiently and completely.

What are the Benefits of Using a Data Center Chiller?

With so many data center cooling methods available, it can be overwhelming to decide which one is best suited for your organization. Some benefits of using a data center chiller include:

  • Precise load balancing to optimize cooling
  • Variable-primary flow to decrease energy costs and reduce carbon footprint
  • Redundancy to maintain uptime
  • Turn-down to run continuously at a fraction of the designed capacity

Simplify Data Center Cooling with DCIM Software

Much of a data center’s expenses are due to the energy costs of running the cooling system. Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software helps reduce data center energy consumption by increasing overall data center efficiency.

DCIM software collects, reports, trends, and alerts on live measured readings from environmental sensors such as humidity and temperature. This provides data center managers with a clear understanding of when to change set points and by how much without introducing risk. DCIM software makes it easy to visualize hot spots with thermal time-lapse videos, avoid overcooling and wasting money, keep cabinets with ASHRAE guidelines, and increase data center sustainability.
