Cool Calculator - Hot Savings Potential

It Cooling With Minimal Power Consumption
Consumption has a considerable share of cooling with conventional technologies. This is exactly where the cooling systems from FAHRENHEIT start. Because computer power is converted into waste heat – and the adsorption technology uses instead of expensive electrical energy exactly this already existing heat energy for cooling.
Also possible: the drive through efficient external heat sources, such as a combined heat and power plant (see variants 1 and 2). For operators of data centers and Server rooms thus result in considerable potential savings. In parallel with the electricity costs, CO2 emissions are also reduced – and the refrigerant used is nothing but pure, harmless water.

Drive Through Waste Heat Of The Cpus.

It is particularly energy-efficient to use the waste heat from the cores themselves for cooling. This variant is particularly suitable for water-cooled systems.

Drive by external heat.

Low power consumption, positive environmental aspects: In economic and energy policy, the use of cogeneration units is particularly interesting. District heating is also suitable for driving our cooling systems. This variant makes sense from approx. 5 kW cooling demand

SERVER COOLING WITH SERVER HEAT AT LRZ LEIBNIZ DATA CENTER OF THE BAVARIAN ACADEMY OF SCIENCES.

2015

The LRZ takes over the tasks of the central IT service provider for the Munich universities and supplies more than 100,000 customers with IT services.

In addition, it operates one of the largest supercomputers in the world. With the use of the FAHRENHEIT adsorption chiller units, the waste heat from the computer can be used for the first time specifically for cooling.

As a result, electricity costs for cooling have been significantly reduced. At the same time, the measure contributes to sharpening the innovative and responsible profile of the data center.
