Data center cooling

Millions of servers in data centers worldwide generate huge amounts of heat while handling and processing data. Compared to conventional server cooling technology, Alfa Laval is able to reduce cooling related energy costs by taking advantage of free cooling sources and applying innovative cooling concepts such as Low Speed Ventilation with the lowest PUE on the market: 1.07 compared to market average of 1.5.

Integrated cooling systems

Alfa Laval offers gasketed plate heat exchangers, dry coolers, adiabatic coolers and water filters that can be used in air and water-based free cooling systems, and specially designed Low Speed Ventilation air coolers for cooling of servers.

These products can be combined in optimized, integrated systems that match a data center’s specific cooling needs.

Low Speed Ventilation at a glance

LSV coolers, located outside the server room, are typically connected to a chiller in the summer and to free cooling equipment in colder periods.

Reducing air speed and delivering an optimum airflow minimizes pressure differences in the white space and therefore prevents problems such as ‘hot spots’. With no need for CRAC units, maintenance is reduced in the server room. As it offers the lowest PUE among competing solutions – PUE 1.07 compared with a 1.5 average for global data centres – Low Speed Ventilation reduces cooling-related energy bills with up to 30% depending on  size, type and location of the data center.
