STULZ Water-Side Economizer

Industry leading DX and CW based water-side economizer cooling solutions

When selecting a water-side economizer solution the optimal solution is dependent on several factors and preferences including available infrastructure, climate region, redundancy requirements, ability to support/service different equipment, and available capital versus operating budget. 

Application

  • Data centers

STULZ provides a full range of direct expansion and chilled water economizer solutions:

  • Traditional Economizer

  • Variable Economizer

  • Evaporative Tower Economizer

  • Dual-Source Chilled Water Economizer

  • STULZ Dynamic Economizer

Traditional Economizer

Traditional Economizer Cooling

Traditional Economizer Cooling is comprised of a constant fan speed dry cooler (with fans being cycled on and off based on fluid temperature), constant speed pumps, and water/glycol cooled free cooling CRACs (consisting of both a DX cooling coil and a water/glycol free cooling coil).

Variable Economizer

Variable Economizer Cooling

Variable Economizer Cooling is comprised of a variable fan speed dry cooler (with fan speed controlled based on fluid temperature), variable speed pumps (controlled based on fluid pressure), and water/glycol cooled free cooling CRACs (consisting of both a DX and a water/glycol free cooling coil).   

Evaporative Tower Economizer

Evaporative Tower Economizer Cooling

Evaporative Tower Economizer Cooling is comprised of a closed loop evaporative cooling tower (fan speed controlled based on fluid temperature), a constant speed pump, and water/glycol cooled free cooling CRACs (consisting of both a DX and a water/glycol free cooling coil).

Dual Source CW Economizer

Dual-Source Chilled Water Economizer Cooling

Dual-Source Chilled Water Economizer Cooling is comprised of an evaporative cooling tower (controlled based on fluid temperature), cooling tower pumps, chiller (controlled based on fluid temperature), chiller pumps, and a CRAH unit (with dual circuited interlaced chilled water cooling coil). 

Dynamic Economizer

STULZ Dynamic Economizer Cooling (DEC)

Leading-Edge Design

The STULZ Dynamic Economizer Cooling System utilizes a Chiller, Closed Loop Evaporative cooling tower, and variable speed pumps packaged with modulating valves to achieve incredible efficiency. The STULZ DEC is not only an infrastructure but a design philosophy to optimize every piece of equipment in order to operate at the highest efficiency and lowest power usage through the entirety of the year. This is achieved using full containment and a warm water cooling strategy maximizing economizer and minimizing chiller assist hours, ensuring that chiller loading is kept to a minimum.

The STULZ DEC Philosophy utilizes full containment to ensure that all heat is captured and returned to the CRAH unit. Capturing all of the server heat increases the return air temperature to the CRAH unit. This increased return air temperature allows the elevation of the supply water temperature. This warmer water temperature allows for increased economizer hours as the warmer fluid temperature is above the ambient temperature for more hours per year.

With the STULZ Dynamic Economizer Cooling system operating under optimized conditions, it becomes clear that the system provide state-of-the-art efficiency and contribute to some of the lowest PUE numbers found in the industry.
