Who keeps you cool?
If the internet fails, everything fails – and that’s when everyone loses their cool.

Data centres are the hub of every on-line transaction and communication, but although the consumer expects the best, this service is not automatic or without meticulous background operational control.
Data centres full of sophisticated equipment need management. The two vital ingredients that cannot be compromised are an uninterrupted power supply, and an effective climate control.
Power supply is obviously imperative. The climate control may be a more subtle but it is equally a problematic concern. Fortunately equipment today can withstand a greater variance in operating temperatures, but conversely they emit greater heat output because of their compactness.
Climate control needs the careful consideration of the equipment heat loads and ambient temperature fluctuations, humidity control, the effective air distribution patterns, the introduction of fresh air for maintenance personnel, and backup systems.
The larger data centres are now opting for quality systems that will last the distance. Long gone is the cheap options that are short lived and then let the customer down in the peak load. The risk analysis requires airconditioning systems that are well designed and reliable to avoid outage and downtime.

This often leads to specific requirements that cannot be provided by off-the-shelf products and this is where Mechanical Consultants have the opportunity to work hand in hand with experienced companies to provide the specific solutions to space limitations, additional humidity control requirements and energy recovery.

Rooftop Evaporative Coolers a Fire Risk?

Hot Weather Pic

In the extreme summer heat last week, footage of a burning house in Carrum Downs VIC, raises some questions.
The rooftop cooler was pictured with flames devouring the evaporative pads and subsequent footage showed the black smoke billowing from the opening like a chimney drawing the fire upwards.

Is this a real risk for bushfires where embers could ignite the pads, or for an electrical fires in the roof cavity accelerated by the upward draw of air through the roof opening?
Significant care in design needs to be provided by consultants and contractors when advising customers on the best cooling options.

Indoor Pool Air Quality

Indoor Pool Air Quality

Indoor pool facilities and spa rooms are on the increase. Life style resorts, hotels, function centres and hydrotherapy applications are all incorporating indoor pools.
The indoor air quality design needs specific attention to provide enjoyment for the user and protection for the building from the harmful effects of chemical laden condensation.
Did you know that the condensation removal from correctly sized equipment can generate approximately one pool fill per year?
An effective air treatment design will cater for all parameters including;
• Evaporation rate from the pool and wet area surfaces
• Activity level in the pool
• Airflow on the water surface
• Condensation due to the high dew point of the indoor air
• Chemical off-gassing
• Spectator load requirements
• Negative pressure environment
• Corrosion concerns
• Energy Consumption
Due to the high indoor temperatures (room air temperature is usually 1-2° above water temperature), system operation optimisation is very important. With the large volume of air extraction, indoor pool air quality design is the perfect opportunity for Energy Recovery.
The trend is towards packaged air conditioning equipment with heat recovery and Armcor Air Solutions have developed high efficient units that take Indoor Pool Air Quality to the next level.
Armcor Air Solutions has been recently involved with prestigious projects such as;
• Australia 108 – Tallest Building in the Southern Hemisphere
• Virgin Active – Private Member Health Club
• Numurkah Aquatic Centre – Public Leisure Centre
• Eastern Private Hospital – Hydrotherapy Pool Room
• Singleton Swim and Gym – Public Recreation and Swim Facility

Energy Recovery Ventilators for Data Centre Cooling

Data Centre Cooling, Dehumidification Units

Effective and efficient cooling is a critical component of a data centre infrastructure, and multiple options are available to maintain the temperatures within the imperative parameters to keep the electronic equipment operating.
IT equipment consumes electricity and leaves behind heat as a by-product. This heat, if not treated successfully, will build up to the point where sensitive equipment is damaged or destroyed. Thus the need is to somehow remove the heat.
Moving heat requires energy, so that it costs money in both capital and operational expenses. As companies seek to control the power consumption of data centres, cooling is a major target. Herein lies the move toward cooling that incorporates energy recovery which tends to require less energy and infrastructure than more-traditional cooling methods.
Air distribution patterns are important and the ‘raised floor’ or ‘hot aisles and cold aisle’ designs are the most common ways to effectively ensure an effective and efficient ventilation pattern.
But most important is the selection of effective and efficient equipment. The utilization of fresh air not only provides the necessary ventilation requirement for human occupancy while essential servicing is undertaken, but it can also become its own ‘economy cycle’.
Often outdoor air will need to be treated and filters can easily remove the dust and pollen. Humidity often needs very specific attention and this is where specialised design and dehumidification processes have developed over the past years to the point where they are commercially viable and the ROI is an attractive proposition for energy saving management.
Armcor Air Solutions can assist you with a range of Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERV) and/or Dehumidification equipment specifically designed for, or adaptable to data centre usage.

ERV Saving Energy Costs

According to an article published by ‘The Australian’ today soaring electricity and gas prices are expected to clip 5-14% from pre-tax profits of companies ranging from Woolworths to Wesfarmers and Inghams to NextDC.
They quote Craig Woolford saying, “For most Australian-based companies, we expect the impact will likely be felt over 2017-18 and 2018-19, as most companies will have two or three-year contracts.”

There is not much we can do regarding the price we will have to pay, so the obvious choice is look at how much energy we can save.
Energy efficient and energy recovery HVAC equipment retrofits will have a quick pay back in more and more situations.

Armcor Air Solutions are willing to partner with corporate entities to look at opportunities that will include energy recovery equipment on proposed and existing infrastructure.
