Vertiv has inaugurated an Adiabatic Freecooling Chiller Innovation Lab within its Customer Experience Centre for Thermal Management, based in Padova, Italy. This facility now has six innovation laboratories on the one site. The Customer Experience Centre for Thermal Management has been expanded to boost technology innovation and customer focus, the company says. The adiabatic Freecooling Chiller Innovation Lab is designed to develop latest thermal management technologies and to test performances under real field conditions.
In addition to continuous R&D and product testing, the centre is designed to introduce existing and prospective customers to the Vertiv award-winning thermal management portfolio, and experience first-hand a wide variety of technologies to help them evaluate which are most suited for their specific needs.
Supported by constant consultation from R and D and engineering specialists, customers visiting the centre from around the world can witness a comprehensive range of cooling equipment – from pumped refrigerant to evaporative technologies – all under one roof. The latest Adiabatic Freecooling Chiller Innovation Lab provides the opportunity to test chillers up to 1.5 MW in extreme operating conditions between -10 and +55 degrees Celsius.
