R4 Ventures LLC / Kinetic Systems Inc sign int’l patent licensing and contract manufacturing agreement covering manufacturing of standard sized skid mounted Multistage Evaporative Cooling Systems and Real Time Individual Electronic Enclosure Cooling Systems (Fan Coil Units)
R4 Ventures LLC (R4V) and Kinetic Systems Inc (Kinetics) have signed an international patent licensing and global contract manufacturing agreement to manufacture R4V’s patented Multistage Evaporative Cooling System (MECS). The MECS, a cooling tower based solution, will consist of standard sized skid mounted system modules serving cooling loads of 600,000 to 4,000,000 btu/hs. These standard sized cooling modules can serve data center IT cooling loads ranging from 200 kW to 1200 kW and Turbine Inlet Cooling (TIC) inlet air cooling loads on 1 to 15 MW natural gas combustion turbine gensets. The MECS is a truly green technology that has no high energy consuming compressors (or refrigerants), saves 40 to 60% on cooling energy costs compared to traditional mechanical refrigeration systems, and reduces green house gas (GHG) emissions.
As part of this agreement, Kinetics will manufacture R4V’s patented Real Time Electronic Enclosure Cooling System (Fan Coil Units or FCUs) in KSI’s global fabrication facilities, which includes worldwide mechanical engineering services and mechanical contracting services. The FCUs are designed to process cool individual data center racks / enclosures with loads of 5kW to over 35 kW in real time. The FCUs eliminate hot aisles and cold aisles, maintain data center white space temperatures to within ± 1 °F of the set point temperature, and save 60 to 85% on cooling energy usage/costs compared to traditional data center cooling methods.
The Real Time Data Center Cooling System is created by combining MECS and the FCUs to flexibly meet process cooling loads of varying rack densities in today’s data centers. This system saves 60 to 85% of cooling energy usage/costs by not over sizing traditional comfort cooling systems and recaptures data center “Lost Capacity” due to lack of available cooling, while extending the economic life of a data center.
