The Emerson Network Power Chilled Water-Based CRAC is an advanced cooling system that has a number of different benefits over traditional cooling systems. One of the most important benefits is that it doesn’t require compressors or air handlers. Instead, the building’s natural temperature changes are used to create the chilling effect. This process can reduce energy usage by up to 40% The Emerson Network Power’s Chilled Water-Based CRAC provides water cooling without the use of refrigerant. This solution can be used in a wide variety of applications including high-rise buildings, large indoor arenas, and industrial facilities.
Emerson Network Power’s Chilled Water-Based CRAC works through the use of its own unique technology. This system uses high pressure water and air to cool its systems. The water is first mixed with the refrigerant the gas that makes up part of a refrigeration system that will be used by the Emerson CRAC units. The mixture of gases then travels from an outdoor coil to an indoor coil, which warms it with hot water until it becomes cold enough for the gas to condense and become liquid again. It then returns through an outdoor coil before being injected back into the atmosphere where the whole process starts over.
Different Types of CRAC Systems Available
The chilled water-based CRAC mechanism is made up of a set of modules that are fitted to the roof of the building. These modules use cold water drawn from the building’s service pump and pipe it to a cooling tower at approximately -27 degrees Celsius. In this cooling tower, the incoming hot water is cooled down and then it is sent back into the building. This constant loop prevents icing and frost damage to the building’s roof. Emerson Network Power manufactures several different types of chiller for a variety of applications. They offer a cooled water-based CRAC that is designed to control condenser cooling.
The coolant used in the system is chilled water and it can be used for the heat rejection, refrigeration, and absorption systems. A CRAC system is a central plant cooling and conditioning system that uses chilled water to cool machinery by circulating the water through closed piping networks. There are three types of CRAC systems: air-cooled, vapor-compression, and liquid-flux contact. Air-cooled CRAC systems work by using a compressor and large refrigeration unit to circulate water over the machine within an air-cooled condenser. Vapor-compression systems use vapor compression technology to cool machinery. Liquid-flux contact systems use a pump to provide the needed cooling for the machines within the plant.
