EcoCooling reduces cooling costs by up to 90% at TKMaxx, Matalan and Cummins Diesel


matalan1With over 3000 installations worldwide, UK-based EcoCooling can claim to be an innovator in low energy, direct evaporative cooling and ventilation technologies. In this sponsored post, the firm says clients such as TKMaxx, Matalan and Cummins Diesel verify that claim.

The firm has developed energy efficient cooling solutions to suit all types of buildings including data centres, comms rooms, industrial, retail and commercial. Because its technology uses up to 90% less energy than traditional cooling methods, it can also help businesses deliver CRC objectives.

Some 15000m2 of warehousing provides a manufacturing and R&D facility, as well as a storage base for all spares and coolers. This ensures, that short lead times and adequate supply of spares are guaranteed.

Founded in 200,2 EcoCooling provides energy efficient and low carbon alternatives to air conditioning by taking the concept of direct evaporative cooling and reengineered it. The result is a sophisticated cooling and ventilation system that can outperform the alternatives on most counts, says the firm.

Each EcoCooling system uses fresh air to provide a mixture of ventilation, evaporative cooling, and attemperation (the automatic mixing of hot and cold air) to maintain the required environment inside a building.

One EcoCooler can provide a 3m3 of cooling for under 14p per hour. Energy use can further be reduced by the use of EC fans in IT environments.

EcoCoolers can either be used for the blanket cooling of a building or for spot cooling of workstations and production lines. The firm says the system is perfect for factories, warehouses, and mezzanine floors. Clients include TKMaxx, Cummins Diesel and Matalan.

The EcoCooling CREC (Computer Room Evaporative Cooler) is a low energy, fresh air system which uses a combination of ventilation, evaporative cooling and highly efficient EC fans to provide ASHRAE compliant conditions in data centres, irrelevant of load.

Unlike Free Cooling, now used by many refrigeration systems, the CREC system uses the outside air all year round by using the heat from the data centre itself to heat the incoming air when it is cold outside and conversely cool the air by low energy evaporative cooling when the outside temperature is too high. Direct evaporative cooling is the only technology that can take full advantage of free cooling up to temperatures equal to the desired supply temperature.

This, says the firm, allows huge energy savings to be made since most of the time the only energy required is to run the fan.

Sophisticated control systems designed to the tightest specifications for the data centre industry and manufactured in house are now in demand from other clients. Clients benefiting from this include a butterfly house where close control of temperature and humidity has enabled the breeding period of the butterflies to be increased.

As well, the company says pharmaceutical companies are finding that its control systems can provide accurate information regarding the temperatures and humidities throughout their warehouses allowing MHRA compliance to be proved.
