In mining operations, heat is the enemy. Traditional HVAC solutions and hot aisle/cold aisle designs aren’t always cost-effective for mining scenarios. The space you’re in will dictate the proper solution. In some cases and locations, open-air cooling is preferable to mechanized solutions. It’s hard to know where to start when overheating starts to occur and it’s easy to find blame with contractors who have provided services to you.
Finding a balance between cost and mitigation is challenging. Thermal scans, outside climate shifts, interior layout all present different directions on the best method to cool your equipment. In some of the more challenging environments, mining facilities have to make the choice of risking equipment failure or powering down racks of miners.
VME understands these challenges. In the right space, high-airflow configurations can create a 10°F differential between exhaust temperatures and intake temperatures. In other cases, an isolated cold aisle intake coupled with high CFM exhaust can render temperature issues obsolete. The physical space will dictate how much can be done, cost-effectively, to mitigate these heat issues. VME can help, VME can get more of your miners operational on your peak temperature days.
