Digital transformation of energy management and automation company, Schneider Electric, has unveiled their new range of Uniflair Chiller with inverter screw compressors for large data centres, which they say will provide the efficiency, precision, and configurability to adapt to current and future data centre cooling challenges.
The air-cooled and free cooling extra-large chillers provide increased cooling capacity and lower power consumption for high energy efficiency in all environmental conditions. According to Schneider, Uniflair Chillers with screw compressors are the first solutions to leverage low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants.
“The latest Uniflair Chiller air cooler is designed end-to-end with sustainability in mind and provides enterprises with outstanding energy efficiencies and reliability, even in challenging conditions. With the use of green refrigerants, combined with decreased power consumption, this offering emphasises Schneider’s dedication to purposeful innovation and sustainability while empowering customers with forward-looking adaptability,” said Pankaj Pathak, Director Cooling, Secure Power, Schneider Electric.
Schneider’s latest 300-2200kW Uniflair Chillers introduce major improvements to high efficiency and
reliable cooling for data centre applications and enhance the current platform with new sizes and configurations. The chillers offer modular configuration, integrate a free-cooling system that leverages outdoor air to provide cooling, minimise annual energy usage, and achieve +2MW with high water temperature, increasing unit cooling capacity in a reduced footprint.
In addition to driving data centre sustainability through innovation, Schneider Electric reinforced its
commitment to industry collaboration as a founding coalition member in the Infrastructure Masons
Climate Accord. Infrastructure Masons (iMasons), a non-profit professional association, has
assembled a historic cooperative of over 50 companies, including AWS, Microsoft and Google, to
reduce carbon in digital infrastructure materials, products, and power. The mission of this accord is to
standardise global carbon accounting of digital infrastructure, influencing market-based decisions to
drive the industry to achieve carbon neutrality.
