New nVent HOFFMAN RackChiller CDU800 Maximizes Cooling Performance in Minimal Space | New

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–August 3, 2022–

nVent Electric plc (NYSE: NVT) (“nVent”), a global leader in electrical connection and protection solutions, today launched the nVent HOFFMAN RackChiller CDU800 coolant distribution unit (CDU), the first the company’s platform for high-density liquid cooling for – performance computing (HPC), hyperscale, enterprise and edge applications. The RackChiller CDU800 is designed to constantly supply coolant to maximize cooling efficiency while reliably removing heat from sensitive equipment through a constant pumping and heat exchange cycle.

“Content streaming, cloud computing and artificial intelligence applications are driving demand from our data center customers, who need a flexible solution they can trust and scale,” explained Marc Caiola, Senior Director of Data Solutions at nVent. “Many of our customers also face space constraints. The RackChiller CDU800 provides exceptional cooling performance while requiring the same floor space as a typical data center server rack.

Best-in-Class Portfolio

The RackChiller CDU800 joins nVent’s broad portfolio of high-density liquid cooling solutions for data centers. nVent offers a full line of standard and custom air, indirect, and direct water cooling solutions to protect IT assets, whether for smaller distributed edge computing, harsh environments, or large data center installations. . The product portfolio includes:

  • Air-to-liquid, liquid-to-air and liquid-to-liquid cooling
  • Rack/row CDUs
  • Secondary fluid rack and manifolds, plus hose assemblies
  • Immersion cooling

Technical specifications

CDU solution providers often release theoretical performance data when launching a new product. nVent can provide RackChiller CDU800 data based on actual performance through independent lab verification and results from early adopters of the platform. This empirical data provided insight into the high performance, heat exchange, flow rate and pressure delivered by the RackChiller CDU800.

The RackChiller CDU800 provides 800kW of liquid cooling capacity at approaching 4K temperature and offers high performance liquid flow, pressure and heat dissipation in a standard IT rack footprint. The CDU is an ideal high-density coolant delivery solution for packaged and direct-to-chip cooling applications.

The RackChiller CDU800 is designed for reliability, uptime and ease of maintenance. The rig is designed with N+N redundant pumps that deliver up to 950 liters per minute of secondary flow and 46 psi (3.2 bar) differential pressure.

The CDU includes an intelligent control system that continuously monitors over 35 built-in sensors. This combination, along with a low approach temperature throughout the operating range, can eliminate the need for an expensive chiller rack by enabling American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers of High Power Computer Systems. The pumps, sensors and filtration system can be serviced without causing downtime or affecting performance during operation.

The complete system is integrated into an aesthetic enclosure with a 10-inch color touch screen, side panels and removable doors. The CDU can be installed on a slab or raised floor, in a row with IT equipment racks, or in a separate installation room.

Through its nVent HOFFMAN, nVent RAYCHEM and nVent SCHROFF brands, nVent offers the most comprehensive and innovative thermal management solutions for a variety of applications to meet equipment protection needs. From standard fan assemblies to air conditioners, heat exchangers, liquid cooling, leak detection and more, customers can choose from over 2,000 UL® Listed and Recognized products for reliable operation and longer life. protected components.
