AKRON, Ohio — Air Enterprises, a manufacturer of custom air handling solutions, announced that it has acquired the exclusive license to market, sell, manufacture, and commission KyotoCooling® technology in North America. The company said the agreement combines the patented green cooling technology of KyotoCooling B.V. of Amersfoort, the Netherlands, with the manufacturing and project management of Air Enterprises, and the energy recovery wheel technology of Thermotech Enterprises to offer a highly energy-efficient data center cooling solution.

According to the company, KyotoCooling is a waterless, high-efficiency solution specifically designed for cooling data centers by utilizing outside air and energy recovery wheels to optimize data center ambient temperatures while minimizing outside contaminants. It is a scalable solution from 100 kW to 1,000 kW of sensible cooling.

“Uniting the three leaders in concept, energy recovery, and air handling revolutionizes the industry. By combining thousands of hours of research and development by KyotoCooling with the sustainability of the highest quality energy recovery wheel manufactured by Thermotech and the engineering, manufacturing, and project management skills of Air Enterprises, we will deliver the leading data center cooling solution to the market,” said Martin Ellis, CEO of Air Enterprises.

KyotoCooling is able to maintain precise balance in pressure between cold and hot spaces to deliver an optimal operating environment, said the company. By precisely controlling the flow of air in the data center, it has delivered energy efficiency with a power usage effectiveness (PUE) ranging from 1.05 to 1.15.

“We are very excited to be licensing Air Enterprises to sell and deliver KyotoCooling in North America,” said Pedro Matser, principal for KyotoCooling B.V. “Air Enterprises brings a unique set of skills and technology that will differentiate KyotoCooling from all other data center cooling solutions available to customers.”
