Overall cooling and energy performance in a data center is crucial. Without the proper temperature, systems can overheat and fail, causing major disruptions and the possibility of losing data.
Energy Efficient Technologies installed hundreds of sensors in numerous data centers since 2008 to identify how this industry uses electricity over several years.
Based on this work, our engineering team identified a known issue in every oil lubricated HVAC, computer room air conditioner, chiller and refrigeration system.
This issue causes all of these machines to lose capacity and work harder due to the fouling of heat exchange surfaces – as much as 30% over time.
Energy conservation measures (ECM) addressing HVAC were the focus of this project because their function restores the capacity of cooling systems and reduces energy use and carbon footprint. This site was validated using the third generation ECM product- now in its fourth patented generation called CryoGenX4
Restoring the systems to full operating standards would:
The ECM was introduced into the system and required no downtime for installation. The technology is composed of highly conductive, polarized electro-magnetic molecules that act quickly to forever displace the insulating layer of non-conductive material inside any HVAC/R system (commonly referred to as oil fouling). This does not change the characteristics of the oil or refrigerant in any system, it’s simply a surface science.
These polarized nano-technology molecules prevent refrigerant oil buildup from ever reoccurring. The result is a metal surface free of efficiency and capacity-robbing stagnant oil. That same oil-free surface is then enhanced with improved heat transfer properties. In addition, CryoGenX4 delivers better lubricity, allowing compressors to run at cooler temperatures by re- circulating refrigerant at a colder rate.
By reducing the negative effects of extreme heat, the HVAC and refrigeration system life is also extended.
