Air conditioning (AC) units typically have a nominal and sensible cooling size quoted in kW (kilo-Watts). Sensible cooling is the correct measurement to use when sizing air conditioners for comms rooms, server rooms and datacentres and refers to the dry bulb temperature of the room or building. This is the temperature of air measured by freely exposed thermometer to the air in the room but shielded from heat radiation and moisture. The dry-bulb temperature is the true thermodynamic temperature of the air in the room.
Air conditioning units by kW sizes for clients who want to look for a particular kW sized air conditioning unit for their server room or datacentre application. Please let us know if you need technical advice or would like to arrange a site survey.
