SyCool ITC offers data centre owners and operators an energy efficient indirect cooling solution without the need for water
Munters group have announced the launch of an exciting new cooling technology into the Data Centre industry. SyCool® ITC, Indirect Thermosyphon Cooling, provides an efficient cooling solution for new and existing data centres where access to a suitable water supply may be limited, expensive or unreliable.
Designed specifically for data centres and driven by industry demand, SyCool ITC (patent pending) uses the waste heat from the data centre and a combination of gravity and a syphon effect, to drive a refrigeration cycle capable of operating without pumps or compressors, providing remarkable levels of energy efficiency. Initially launched as a packaged Air Handling Unit (AHU) system, subsequent versions of SyCool will include “Split Systems”, such as above-aisle modules and perimeter CRAH units, providing scalable cooling for new build and retrofit applications. SyCool ITC eliminates the potential risk of contamination from air pollutants, as there is no outside air gaining access to the data hall.
The packaged AHU version of SyCool has been designed such that the units may be installed side-by-side with no space between, with all service access from the ends. Positioning an uninterrupted bank of packaged SyCool units along the perimeter of a data hall will provide class-leading levels of cooling output per linear metre of outside wall.
With a nominal capacity of 250kW, the P250 packaged system will be the first pump-free system to market, offering a best-in-class dry cooling solution and boasting features such as HFO refrigerant-ready; oil-free, low pressure thermosyphon circuits; no moving parts; zero water consumption and significant energy savings compared to the most efficient pumped refrigerant systems currently available on the market.
Available now, the P250 packaged unit offers a range of flexible configurations, including perimeter mounted and rooftop.
- Dry Cooling Solution
- Best-in-class energy efficiency
- Extensive passive mode providing compressor-free cooling across a wide range of temperatures
- No service access required to the sides of packaged machines
- Class-leading cooling performance per linear metre footprint
- Optimised for container shipment
- Available worldwide from Munters’ global manufacturing network

“Adding the SyCool ITC cooling solution to Munters’ portfolio, enables us to offer the industry a water-free indirect cooling system that remains true to the Munters ethos of sustainability. Having led a technology-shift in the data centre market some years ago with our launch of Oasis Indirect Evaporative Cooling, we are proud to build on our heritage as the industry innovators, with today’s launch of yet another game-changing cooling solution” says Neil Yule President Business Area Data Centres.
