Airedale’s configurable data centre fan wall

UK: Critical cooling specialist Airedale by Modine has launched AireWall One, a fan wall developed in collaboration with the data centre industry. 

AireWall One is said to be designed to capitalise on the sustainability potential offered in data centres using higher air and water temperatures to deliver energy efficiency benefits across the whole cooling system.

The ability to configure units from 200kW-650kW, using 2 to 12 centrifugal EC fans and coils with 6, 8 or 10 rows, enables the Airewall One to fit a multitude of building and cooling requirements. In all, it is said to offer over 33,000 potential size permutations.

An evolution of Airedale’s previous AireWall range, the AireWall One is said to have been developed with considerable input from data centre end-users, consultants and contractors. 

Installation and maintenance teams were also heavily involved in the design process to produce a design that simplifies on-site manoeuvring, positioning, commissioning and in-service maintenance.

“AireWall One bridges the gap between an effective fan wall and an intelligent, efficient computer room air handler,” said Airedale global CRAH and CRAC product manager Paul Golding. “It has been designed to deliver a flexible, efficient and global solution to an industry striving for scalability and sustainability. Because it is a parametric design, clients can work with us to configure the units to their site and cooling design.”

AireWall One will be manufactured in Spain, the UK and the US.
