SMi Enerpro’s technologies substantially lower your energy consumption for air conditioning in computer data centers. We can also recover 90% of the heat produced by your servers and reuse it to meet your heating needs. This simple energy transfer ensures unrivaled energy optimization.
The explosive growth of the Internet is creating high demand for data center server hosting. These servers are energy consumers and represent a significant source of air pollution and wasted energy. Certain data centers are so large that they consume as much energy as a medium-sized city! With their powerful computer systems, they generate a lot of heat and require permanent cooling by cold production groups to preserve the equipment and ensure continued operation. Data centers require a high level of redundancy as well as reliable inverters. A power outage would cause server failures and lead to an interruption of the cloud as well as deactivation of the supercomputer. Thermodynamics are not always used to their full potential in HVAC systems.
The closer the PUE (power usage effectiveness) is to 1, the more efficient the overall cooling of the data center is. To meet the constant need for cooling in data centers, SMi Enerpro has implemented an innovative solution based on the fundamentals of the heat transfer equation.
Our technology combines a number of thermodynamic parameters and optimizes their interactions in order to bring you the best cooling system on the market at a low cost.
We also take into account both the surface area and the consumption of the data center to bring your PUE down to as low as 1.06. We can cool all the equipment on site with minimal energy simply by taking advantage of the climate in the country where the data center is located.
Our cooling system design captures the heat from the data center and rejects it outside via an accelerated exchange system using large fans. This cools the air from the data centers to an appropriate temperature for restitution. This system also prevents the buildup of dust, humidity and pollution in the data center. The excess heat captured by the data center operation can also be used to meet heating needs where necessary.
We offer systems with or without water consumption for heat rejection. The dry option allows for flexibility in areas where water use is limited or costly. Our cooling system has the advantage of representing a low investment cost as it does not require any of the complex equipment currently used in the data center industry.
- The cooling system uses moist or dry heat, produced at a cost of less than 0.15 kW/cooling tonne (moist) or 0.30 kW/cooling ton (dry). The heat rejection consumes about 0.5 USG per kWh of the electrical consumption of one computer.
- The heat capture system is a very efficient cooling system that uses only 0.03 kWh per kWh of the electrical consumption of a computer.
- The moisture control system provides a stable rate, even in tropical climates, with an operating cost below 0.01 kWh per kWh of electrical consumption of a computer.
- The systems described use synergy to supply the operations and adapt to the internal and external data center environments.
