gForce Chilled Water System

High Efficiency Cooling

Data Aire offers computer room air handlers up to 730 kW.

The gForce Computer Room Air Handler (CRAH) is a system often used in data centers to mitigate the heat produced by server racks and other equipment. This CRAH uses fans, cooling coils and chilled water to return cold air to the space.

These standard floor, in-row, ceiling, and wall systems are engineered-to-order for a design that meets your application requirements.
