The previous chillers operated on R22, an ozone-depleting HCFC refrigerant currently being phased out by EU regulations. Star’s Indigochiller system operates on fully compliant synthetic refrigerant R134a and features the revolutionary oil-free Turbocor compressor, which is low maintenance by design to ensure lifelong trouble-free running.
Installed in the existing plant room, the Indigochiller system provides chilled water, which is then pumped through insulated pipework to air handling units (AHUs). These AHUs provide comfort cooling throughout the data centre building, as well as direct computer server cooling.
The performance of the high efficiency Indigochiller cooling system has already exceeded expectations, with a significant improvement in the data centre’s power usage effectiveness (PUE) ratio.
Designed for large-scale air conditioning and process cooling, Star’s Indigochiller is manufactured to ensure maximum efficiency, long-term reliability and low life-cycle costs. Indigochiller is engineered to have minimal effect on the global environment, with a robust design that aims to eliminate refrigerant leakage and offer over 20 years service.
Available as an air-cooled or water-cooled unit, Indigochiller has capacity options ranging from 250kW to 1,650kW.
