humidity control + energy saving: is there a solution?
It is widely known that suitable humidity control inside a datacenter minimises electrical discharges. It is likewise commonly known, however, that traditional humidification systems are quite costly, both in terms of environmental impact and power consumption.
Moreover, the latest ASHRAE guidelines have increased the temperature and humidity tolerance thresholds, leading to a number of questions: do we still need to control humidity? Or: can humidity control be reconciled with ever increasing need for energy savings?
Addressing this debate is a free webinar organised by DatacenterDynamics in collaboration with CAREL.
The event focused on two main areas: the latest adiabatic humidification technologies (i.e. high pressure atomisers and ultrasonic humidifiers) and the sizing criteria that ensure humidity is kept above the recommended minimum, while at the same time curtailing energy consumption.
