FläktGroup - Smoke Dampers: The Dangers of Non-Compliance

June 2019

FläktGroup - Smoke Dampers: The Dangers of Non-Compliance

Designed to protect escape routes and assist fire fighters with access, smoke extraction systems are an essential element of modern fire protection strategies. However, it has come to light that the mandatory standard for smoke dampers is increasingly being overlooked as specifiers instead opt for cheaper, uncertified products. Simon Plummer, national fire safety and fans product manager at FläktGroup, discusses this worrying trend.

Stopping smoke from leaking through heating and ventilation systems is key to saving lives, with deaths due to smoke inhalation far outnumbering those resulting from burns. It is no surprise, then, that in recent times smoke inhalation deaths have dropped with the development of improved smoke extraction technologies and control systems.

Fire and smoke dampers are a crucial element of this system. By working together with the other elements of your passive fire protection system, they restrict the spread of flame and smoke throughout a building in the event of a fire.

A smoke damper is typically installed in ducts and the opening of a smoke control system or air distribution system. They can be activated by a signal from a smoke detector within the damper and controlled from a remote fire control and command station.

The correct selection of smoke dampers, along with the right installation and knowledge of current standards, can save lives. The problem is that with the regulations around smoke control a complex mix of evolving legislation and guidance, it can be a challenge for specifiers and building managers to know if their systems are fully compliant or not.

In recent years, the European Union has introduced harmonised testing standards for smoke and heat control systems (EN 12101). Part 8, which specifically focused on smoke control dampers, requires the testing of products in fire situations. This is to ensure that they open and close correctly, in accordance with the set fire safety strategy.

It is important for the building industry to be aware that products that are not certified to the harmonised European standards pose a severe risk to the entire fire safety system. What’s more, it is alarming that there are many dampers in the market that don’t meet this regulatory requirement.

Any leakages, including from the dampers or the ducts, affect the performance of modern fire protection systems. That is why ducts, fittings, hangers and dampers all have to be fire tested so that they keep their stability and fittings remain tight and secure in an emergency.

Although some products say that they have been designed and tested to the latest standards, they may not be officially certified by an independent body. This, combined with a lack of enforcement from the relevant authorities, means that many people are not aware that the smoke dampers they are deploying are actually illegal.

We would urge the industry to only use smoke dampers that have been independently tested and CE marked to make sure they are fit for purpose. At FläktGroup, we ensure that our all smoke dampers are fire tested with the whole duct system to meet the latest standards, including EN 12101-8, and are CE marked. That way, building owners, managers and occupiers can have complete peace of mind that performance is assured in the event of a fire.

FläktGroup - Kao Data Campus Employs FläktGroup & Adia-DENCO®

April 2019

FläktGroup - Kao Data Campus Employs FläktGroup & Adia-DENCO® Indirect Evaporative Cooling to Save Energy, Water & Maximise Efficiency
.
FlaktGroup - Kao Data Campus
Today, maximising the efficiency of the data centre is every operators’ goal. Pressure from government regulations, customer requirements, investors and other stakeholders is driving the industry towards effective design and utilisation of technical space within the facility.

Kao Data, recently the largest new independent entrant into the UK wholesale colocation data centre market, entered with technical leadership gathered from prominent global organisations. All aspects of the major development were considered from a technical and economic stand-point to ensure that the campus offered highly efficient space that was compliant with leading industry guidelines and standards, including ASHRAE TC9.9, OCP ‘Ready’ Facility, BREEAM, and a wide range of ISO requirements.

Paul Finch, COO at Kao Data says: “In a growth data centre industry, driven by consumer demand for data, the ASHRAE Thermal Guidelines provide a unique opportunity for data centre owners and operators to bolster their corporate social responsibilities, reducing the environmental impact of data centres in a manner which also makes both commercial and economic sense. Unlocking the free-cooling capability of Kao Data Campus was a key strategy to enable us to build a fully resilient facility which could provide a flexible response to customer requirements while delivering a class leading, ultra-low 1.2 PUE at all ITE loads.”

Working Collaboratively at Kao Data Campus

Kao Data had made the decision early on, to appoint as lead contractor the highly experienced M&E design and build contractor, JCA Engineering. This decision allowed a highly collaborative working relationship to develop, where engineering principles were used to quickly solve construction challenges.

With guidance from JCA, Kao Data investigated the opportunities for free-cooling alternatives for its campus’ IT Halls. The two organisations believed that utilising non-mechanical cooling for the data centre was achievable in the UK, in compliance with the thermal guidelines. This would provide an opportunity to significantly reduce overall energy use at Kao Data Campus, whilst strengthening its corporate social responsibility and reducing the environmental impact of its data centres.

FläktGroup, has a long relationship with JCA Engineering, in consultancy, design and implementation of large volume, air handling systems (AHU), chiefly with the DencoHappel product lines.

Discussing the journey to a free-cooling IT space, Tom Absalom, managing director, JCA Engineering, states, “JCA quickly gained the confidence of Kao Data’s senior management, as both sides were working towards a common goal, which at the time was unusual in the UK data centre market, one where mechanical cooling was eliminated from the design.”

JCA and Kao Data visited the FläktGroup production site and were confident that the quality and capabilities of the AHUs were appropriate for the climate requirements for the data centre’s IT Space. The FläktGroup AHU design team worked closely with JCA and Kao Data to understand the specific requirements of the Harlow based Kao Data Campus and designed an efficient free-cooling system that offers the flexibility to provide a controlled environment within the technical space of the 8.8MW data centre which was able to meet server manufacturer warranty requirements.

Paul Finch, COO, Kao Data stated, “We recognised that data centre availability and reliability can be complementary to both energy efficiency and sustainability. Reliable, effective and efficient cooling is intrinsic to data centre operations, and we knew FläktGroup’s reputation both for the quality and range of their industry-leading cooling solutions. Together with JCA, we were in discussion with them very early in the planning cycle for Kao Data Campus and they quickly rose to the top of our shortlisted suppliers.”

Meeting the Cooling Requirements at Kao Data London One

FläktGroup worked with JCA and Kao Data to analyse the potential IT load variables across the data centre IT space to determine the most effective cooling solution. With a potential energy load of 2.2MW per data hall, the client was focussed on delivering the vast-majority of that energy to IT use and not detract from the energy envelope to power refrigerated cooling systems. Power is the single largest operational cost within a data centre and of that, the mechanical cooling system is usually the biggest percentage, often higher than the energy used to run the servers and other IT equipment.

Yan Evans, Global Director of Data Centre Solutions at FläktGroup stated, “Understanding the client’s varied requirements including energy efficiency, reduced environmental impact and cost of operations. Our solution was based on Adia-DENCO Evaporative Cooling Units, which are able to cool data centre environments without mechanical refrigeration equipment such as compressors and still achieve all three of the metrics set by Kao Data.”

Adia-DENCO utilises local climate conditions for enhanced energy efficiency operation. Adiabatic cooling coupled with large plate heat exchangers, enables energy efficient customers, such as Kao Data, to achieve exceptional EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio) values.

FläktGroup Adia-DENCO in Operation at Kao Data

Now operational, phase one of the Kao Data campus, has implemented N+1 Indirect Evaporative Cooling (IEC), utilising 13x Adia-DENCO AHUs, providing highly efficient climate control within the Kao Data London One data centre. This configuration enables concurrent maintenance of the IEC’s and also offers the required resilient back-up capability in the unlikely scenario of a unit failure.

To maximise the internal space for IT equipment, the cooling systems are mounted externally on the building adjacent to the IT Hall. The system is installed with dampers, weather guards and a weather roof to protect the equipment from the environment. In this wall configuration, any air that enters the unit is returned to the same side. Ambient air enters in the bottom of the unit and flows upwards through the plate heat exchanger. Air returning from the white space enters in the top of the unit and is drawn downwards through the plate heat exchanger, allowing for cross flow against the ambient air. Each IT Hall is approximately 9,500sqft and the 13-AHUs provide a net cooling capacity of 2.2MW (N) and airflow of 13.5m³/sec per unit into the data centre.

The installed units use reverse osmosis water which allows for the water to be reused for adiabatic cooling several times. This dramatically reduces flush cycles from every hour to typically once a week. This, combined with intelligent control software, allows for water use to be minimised, improving WUE (Water Usage Effectiveness) at Kao Data Campus.

Within the IT Halls, customer cabinets are in enclosures and utilise hot aisle containment, which enables higher density racks, up to 20kW, to be optimised using IEC cooling technology. The cooling infrastructure is designed around a conservative temperature differential of 12°C. Applying the combined expertise of Kao Data, JCA and FläktGroup design team to the IT cooling system has enabled a re-imagining of the equipment needed and has greatly reduced the mechanical complexity of the data centre. This subsequently has positive effects such as increased energy efficiency (the Kao Data London One data centre operates with an ultra-low PUE
