Ecocooler Techology for UK Snack Company: Graze

Graze is a UK-based snack company which offers over 200 snack combinations through subscription boxes. The company distributes thousands of healthy snack boxes per day across the country.

Their main production facility based in Hayes, London was experiencing high summertime temperatures, particularly above a mezzanine in the picking and packing area. Graze got in touch with Celsius to look at designing and installing a suitable cooling solution for the area.

Celsius installed two EcoCooler Evaporative Coolers balanced with two Celsius wall-mounted extraction units. With each system rated at 35kw of cooling, the design was able to comfortably meet the requirements and drastically reduce the working temperatures. 

Graze requested each system have air socks fitted, to help disperse the chilled input air more evenly across the area. Celsius was able to accommodate and incorporate this request into their design. 

Celsius undertook the complete installation with no downtime in a live Production area.

What is EcoCooler?

EcoCooler is a cutting-edge cooling system designed to provide energy-efficient and cost-effective cooling solutions for a wide range of applications. It utilises the natural process of evaporative cooling to significantly reduce energy consumption compared to traditional air conditioning systems. By harnessing the power of water evaporation, EcoCooler can effectively cool large spaces while minimising the environmental impact.

How does EcoCooler work?

EcoCooler works on the principle of evaporative cooling, where hot air is passed through water-soaked pads, causing the water to evaporate and cool the air. This cooled air is then circulated throughout the space, providing a comfortable and refreshing environment. Unlike conventional air conditioning systems that rely on refrigerants and compressors, EcoCooler operates using natural resources, making it a greener and more sustainable alternative.

Benefits of EcoCooler

  • Energy Efficiency: EcoCooler can achieve significant energy savings of up to 90% compared to traditional air conditioning systems. Utilising the natural process of evaporative cooling, reduces the need for extensive electrical cooling mechanisms, resulting in lower energy consumption and a reduced carbon footprint.

  • Cost Savings: With its energy-efficient operation, EcoCooler helps businesses save on their cooling costs. The reduced energy consumption translates to lower electricity bills, making it an economically viable cooling solution in the long run.

  • Environmentally Friendly: As an eco-conscious cooling system, EcoCooler minimises the use of harmful refrigerants and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Its reliance on water evaporation makes it a sustainable choice for businesses looking to reduce their environmental impact.

Data Centre Cooling with EcoCooler

Data centres are critical infrastructures that require efficient cooling systems to maintain optimal operating conditions for servers and IT equipment. Traditional cooling solutions can be expensive and energy-intensive, leading to significant operational costs. EcoCooler offers a cost-effective and energy-efficient alternative for data centre cooling.

Challenges in Data Centre Cooling

Data centres generate significant heat due to the high-density server racks and continuous operation of IT equipment. Cooling these spaces efficiently is crucial to prevent equipment failure and maintain data integrity. However, traditional cooling systems, such as computer room air conditioning (CRAC) units, can be costly and inefficient. They often require large amounts of electricity to maintain the desired temperature, resulting in high operational expenses.

EcoCooler for Data Centre Cooling

EcoCooling systems offer an innovative solution for data centre cooling, providing efficient cooling while reducing energy consumption and operational costs. By leveraging the power of evaporative cooling, EcoCooler can deliver substantial energy savings compared to traditional CRAC units.

Advantages of EcoCooling in Data Centres

  • Energy Efficiency: EcoCooler's evaporative cooling technology consumes significantly less energy than traditional cooling systems. This energy efficiency translates into reduced electricity bills and a smaller carbon footprint for data centres.

  • Scalability: EcoCooling systems are highly scalable, allowing data centres to expand their cooling capacity as needed. Additional cooling units can be easily integrated into the existing infrastructure, providing flexibility for future growth.

  • Enhanced Reliability: EcoCooler's simple and robust design ensures reliable operation, minimising the risk of equipment failure and downtime. The absence of complex mechanical components reduces the chances of system malfunctions, resulting in improved reliability for data centre cooling.

  • Improved Environmental Conditions: EcoCooling systems not only cool the air but also improve the overall environmental conditions in data centres. By increasing humidity levels, they help prevent static electricity buildup and reduce the risk of equipment damage.

Shopfloor Cooling with EcoCooler

Maintaining comfortable working conditions on the shop floor is essential for the productivity and well-being of employees. EcoCooler offers an effective cooling solution for industrial environments, ensuring a cool and refreshing atmosphere for workers.

Challenges in Shopfloor Cooling

Shopfloors often face challenges in maintaining comfortable temperatures due to high heat generation from machinery and processes. Traditional cooling systems may struggle to provide adequate cooling, leading to discomfort and reduced productivity for workers. Additionally, the energy consumption of conventional air conditioning systems can contribute to high operational costs.

EcoCooler for Shopfloor Cooling

EcoCooling systems are ideal for shopfloor cooling, offering a cost-effective and energy-efficient solution to combat high temperatures in industrial environments. By harnessing the power of evaporative cooling, EcoCooler can effectively cool large spaces while minimising energy consumption.

Advantages of EcoCooling in Shopfloors

  • Effective Cooling: EcoCooler's evaporative cooling technology provides efficient cooling for shop floors, ensuring a comfortable working environment for employees. By lowering the ambient temperature, it helps prevent heat-related discomfort and fatigue, leading to increased productivity.

  • Energy Efficiency: EcoCooler's energy-efficient operation can result in significant cost savings for industrial facilities. By consuming less electricity compared to traditional cooling systems, it helps reduce operational expenses and improve the bottom line.

  • Flexibility and Scalability: EcoCooling systems can be customised to suit the specific needs of industrial environments. They can be easily integrated into existing ventilation systems or designed as standalone solutions, providing flexibility and scalability for shopfloor cooling.

  • Improved Air Quality: EcoCooling systems not only cool the air but also filter and purify it, improving the overall air quality in industrial settings. By reducing airborne contaminants and pollutants, they create a healthier working environment for employees.
