Indirect thermosyphon data cooling

Indirect thermosyphon data cooling

Munters has launched a new energy efficient data centre dry cooling solution using indirect thermosyphon technology.

Said to offer an effective cooling solution where access to a suitable water source can be limited, expensive or unreliable, Munter’s SyCool ITC uses data centre waste heat and a combination of gravity and a syphon effect, to drive a refrigeration cycle without pumps or compressors. It is said to eliminate the potential risk of contamination from air pollutants, as there is no outside air gaining access to the data hall.

Initially launched as a packaged air handling unit system, Munters says that subsequent versions of SyCool will include split systems, such as above-aisle modules and perimeter CRAH units.

The packaged AHU version of SyCool has been designed such that the units may be installed side-by-side with no space between, with all service access from the ends. Munters says that positioning an uninterrupted bank of packaged SyCool units along the perimeter of a data hall will provide class-leading levels of cooling output per linear metre.

With a nominal capacity of 250kW, the P250 packaged system will be the first pump-free system to market, offering a best-in-class dry cooling solution. It is an HFO-refrigerant-ready, oil-free, low pressure system with no moving parts and zero water consumption.
