Data center energy usage has risen dramatically the past 10 years and will continue to grow in-step with the processor-intensive, high-density applications used in high performance computing. Cooling is not only a logistical challenge that can cause significant downtime and lost capacity, but it is also costly for data centers, representing up to 40% percent of a data center's energy usage. R4V's patented Real Time Data Center Cooling System technology paired with Emcor's high quality server enclosure cabinets can save the average data center 50% to 85% on cooling energy usage and costs.

"R4V offers a critical energy efficient cooling option for the data center market," said Kevin Jackson, business development manager for Emcor Enclosures. "The sheer size and cooling needs of data centers today have surpassed many of the cooling applications currently available. R4V and Emcor Enclosures are now positioned to provide significant energy and cost savings that will drive the market for years to come," added Jackson.

"R4V applies semiconductor clean room process cooling methods (versus traditional comfort cooling) to data center server enclosure heat loads. This patented method cools heat loads before hot air enters data center space. Our technologies eliminate hot and cold aisles and expensive containment. We cool and control fluctuating enclosure heat loads in real time and maintain a ± 2 °F data center space set point temperature," said Dr. Darrell Richardon, chief executive officer for R4V.
