Data Centre Cooling


Seasonal weather is often responsible for damaging data centre cooling tower equipment, whether it be freezing conditions, pollen, insects or air-borne debris.

Our fabric shield solutions protect your cooling tower equipment from the damaging effects of airborne debris and extreme cold weather, providing optimum cooling performance, all year-round. Our durable fabrics are designed to provide protection for the long-term, and can be fitted to suit your cooling tower’s exact specifications.

Data Centre Cooling Challenges

Airborne Debris

Foreign materials both organic and inorganic are naturally drawn inside air inlets either blocking fin coils or providing a food source for bacteria. Restricting airflow reduces cooling efficiency, whilst high levels of bacteria in a wet system can lead to concerns over legionella. Cleaning your internal cooling equipment should be part of maintenance routines, but airborne debris can often be difficult, time consuming and expensive to remove.


Winterization

Winterization is often required for industrial cooling equipment to prevent the damaging effects of high wind, low ambient temperatures, and icing conditions. Failure to protect against low ambient temperatures can cause both operational and production problems. Extreme conditions can result in structural damage to the equipment such as water leakage and fill collapse.


Maintaining Airflow

Maintaining fan flow rate through the air inlet and not increasing obstructions or pressure drop is critical in enabling the fans to run efficiently. This can be achieved through our custom design and specialist fabric technology

Why do cooling towers need fabric shielding solutions?


Protecting your cooling tower system with fabric shields is vital to…

  • Prevent debris from clogging the system

Foreign materials both organic and inorganic are naturally drawn inside your cooling tower air inlets, which can block fin coils and restrict airflow in dry systems, reducing cooling efficiency. In wet systems, debris can lead to dangerous levels of bacteria – even pose a legionella risk. With our debris shields in place, you can minimise the time you spend cleaning your cooling system and boost its efficiency.

  • Protect against winter weather

Winterization is often required for industrial cooling equipment to prevent the damaging effects of high wind, low ambient temperatures, and icing conditions. Failure to protect against low temperatures can cause damage and operational problems. Extreme conditions can result in structural damage to internal equipment such as water leakage and fill collapse.

  • Maintain Airflow

Maintaining fan flow rate through the air inlet and not increasing obstructions or pressure drop is critical in enabling the fans to run efficiently. This can be achieved through custom design and our specialist fabric technology.

  • Improve sustainability

Cooling towers require a lot of energy to run and so many plant operators are under increasing pressure to bring their fossil fuel usage down to improve the sustainability of their site. By installing our winterization screens and debris filter solutions you can significantly improve the efficiency of your cooling tower equipment, optimising your energy usage and showing your commitment to running a sustainable plant.
