Triad’s River Cooling System©

Triad promotes passive “River Cooling System©” by replacing ineffective airflow systems in a very cost effective way. Airflow Utilization Efficiency© (AUE) is measured by comparing the supply air temperature (65) to the temperatures at the top of the rack (80) = AUE of 15. By managing to an AUE of 10 or lower, data center managers can reduce cooling costs by up to 40%.

Triad targets AUE by improving the cooling flow at all three levels of the rack. “Data center managers can save 4 percent in energy costs for every degree of upward change in the set point, according to Mark Monroe, the Director of Sustainable Computing at Sun Microsystems (JAVA).” Therefore, by lowering the lower, mid and upper server temperature by 5 – 15 degrees, Triad’s passive River Cooling systems provide 8% to 40% reductions in Data Center energy bills.

A bit more about Triad

Triad Raised Access Floor Company was founded in 2003. Triad has patented multiple raised access floor designs including the first 3000 lbs. load rated raised access floor system Genesis in 1993 for the Semi-Conductor industry.

In response to the industry's need for an efficient cooling panel that would fit into any existing or new raised access floor system, the Triad "River (ICE) Cooling©" Airflow Panels were designed. This innovative design increases server airflow density while remedying data center and server farm hot spot challenges. Aging data centers infrastructure has made Triad the leading replacement raised access floor solution for increasing heat load and hot spot demands. Triad guarantees they can fit any raised floor system design with a replacement airflow panels that deliver 2-3 times more CFM than the industry standard 25% airflow panels.

All of Triad's design, manufacturing and distribution is proudly done in Denver, Colorado USA assuring the highest quality products while supporting the American economy and worker.
