StatePoint Liquid Cooling Technology

StatePoint Liquid Cooling Technology

The World’s First Sustainable Data Center Cooling Technology

Nortek Air Solutions has created an industry-first in data center cooling – the StatePoint™ Liquid Cooling (SPLC) system. As the market for data storage and hyperscale performance increases, the demand for power and water resources will increase exponentially, making improved efficiency and sustainability critical for future growth. Revolutionary StatePoint technology makes cooling a data center more efficient and sustainable using an indirect exchange between water and scavenger air in an optimized, compact membrane heat exchanger. The process cools water by evaporation through a membrane separation layer, preventing cross-contamination between the water and air streams.

StatePoint’s flexible design can be used in any data center regardless of location or climate and still maintain sustainable, efficient performance. This allows for environmentally-responsible data center expansion into areas of the globe previously considered out of network.

Benefits & Features

Next-Generation Design
  • High-performance, compact StatePoint Membrane Heat Exchanger (SPEX) designed to optimize indirect heat transfer between air and water flows.
  • A refrigerant-less solution for delivering water to a data center efficiently without over-burdening the local fresh water supply.
Operational Power and Water Savings
  • 30% less power usage versus conventional data center cooling designs.
  • 30% or better water savings versus conventional data center cooling designs.
  • Operational flexibility to limit total peak water and total peak power.
Environmental Sustainability
  • Indirect heat exchange offers ITE (IT Equipment) protection from outdoor contaminants, temperature fluctuation swings and humidity.
Ease of Integration
  • Simplified external hydronic circuit requirements
  • Cooling delivery connection to a variety of systems (fan coil walls, CRAH, air handlers, hot aisle enclosures, rear door heat exchangers, chip cooling and cold plates)
  • Integrated supply water temperature and distribution pumping control
  • High cooling performance in a compact exchanger
  • No chillers (under certain design conditions/locations/climates)
  • Can be configured for simplified field installation
Cooling Processes
  • Economizer – Heat recovery coil is active and used in conjunction with fans to cover 100% of the load with no supplemental cooling
  • Adiabatic – Heat exchanger is energized with water to maximize the performance of the heat recovery coil and drive additional capacity
  • Super Evaporative – Heat exchanger, fans and heat recovery coil work together to remove heat from the data center and efficiently reject it into the atmosphere
