Is your computer room air conditioning (CRAC) out dated?

Floating Head Initiative
Computer room air conditioning (CRAC) units play an invaluable role in data centers, maintaining precise air temperature, circulation and humidity in high-density computing environments. While these CRAC units employ complex climate control techniques, most legacy units rely on unsophisticated air conditioning (A/C) strategies of operating at a high fixed condensing pressure.

Floating head pressure, a progressive climate-control technology, reduces energy consumption in air conditioning system architectures. This technology offers long-term savings benefits and operational reliability because of its ability to adapt to ambient temperatures and regulate condensing temperatures. This reduced energy consumption translates directly into energy savings, typically as much as 20 percent.

Reduce energy consumption and costs with refrigeration optimization

Floating Head Pressure Benefits 

Lowers energy consumption and costs
• Increases compressor A/C tonnage capacity
• Extends compressor and system life through reduction in compression ratios and cycles
• Improves sustainability (refrigerant reduction and lower energy consumption)

• Improves facility PUE
Maintenance cost reduction due to reduced wear
• Prevents compressor failure due to flooding
• Utility incentives/rebates to upgrade system
