Nexpand row-based cooling solutions

The high density computer environments are well served with Minkels active cooling solutions - whether these are Direct Expansion (DX) solutions (including coolers with a cooling capacity of 10 kW or 20 kW) or Chilled Water (CW) ones (for higher heat densities, depending on the cooler selected, one unit can cope with 40 kW or 60 kW of heat load). ecatalog.png

Minkels cooling devices are fitted in the Nexpand frame and designed under the Nexpand platform phylosophy. This means that the integration of the coolers in the containment (whether it is open or closed loop) is seamless. It also means that the coolers can integrate with most of the accessories that are available for Nexpand cabinets. So, your cable management continuity and airflow management remain optimal!

APPLICATIONS – SELECTING YOUR COOLERSMinkels will always be in direct contact with you to provide the best match for your needs, gather the information you provide and calculate the most optimal configuration for your solution.

As a rule of thumb to provide some guidance it can be said that:

  • DX solutions prove to be more energy efficient when the heat load of the containment is below 100kW. This means that DX deployments are to be expected in small or medium size containment solutions where the heat densities per rack are not too high, commonly around 5kW per rack.

  • CW solutions offer higher cooling capacities to face the most demanding applications, these prove to be more energy efficient when the heat load of the contaiment goes beyond 100kW. Applications such as high performance computing, artificial inteligence, gaming or crypto mining are commonly demanding this need. Collage cooling portfolio.png
