JS Humidifiers will be showcasing its low energy evaporative coolers and humidifiers at the Data Centre World exhibition on stand C75 at the ExCel London, 27-28th February.

Cold water humidifiers can deliver low energy cooling to a data centre environment, extend the use of free air cooling systems and minimise the requirement for mechanical cooling.

For each kg of moisture evaporated into an atmosphere from a cold water humidifier, 680W of cooling is provided. A single evaporative humidifier operating on just 550W of electricity can evaporate over 600kg/hr of moisture. This equates to around 700kW of cooling for every 1kW powering the humidification system.

The extension of the ASHRAE guidelines on temperature and humidity levels in data centres made the use of free air cooling systems practical. The higher permissible humidity levels from AHSRAE and the increased ventilation inherent in free air cooling makes an evaporative cooling system the ideal supplement.

By employing evaporative cooling the use of a free air cooling system can be extended from around 70% to 95% of the year (UK climate). Mechanical cooling is required only on the very hottest days.

There are two types of evaporative cooling system – direct and indirect. Direct evaporative cooling sees the humidifier providing moisture to the incoming air, increasing its humidity while decreasing its temperature. Indirect evaporative cooling has the humidifier operating on the exhaust air. Before being expelled, the air is humidified and cooled, then passed through a heat recovery unit to transfer the cool thermal energy to the incoming air. This cools the incoming air without adding any additional moisture to it.

JS Humidifiers offers a comprehensive range of humidifiers and evaporative coolers for data centre environments to provide cooling and combat electro static discharge.
