Data Center Water Cooling Solutions
Can data centers be sustainably cooled? Racks of computer servers generate massive amounts of heat, and if they aren’t kept chill, they will shut down—no more Internet! Typically, data center cooling systems rely on air conditioning, a costly, one-size-fits-all approach. Water is 3,400 times more efficient than air in removing heat, and rack-level liquid cooling (using water and glycol) is emerging as the most effective, efficient, and sustainable method for high-performance data centers. ITT RCW variable speed controllers can increase the efficiency and uniformity of a liquid cooling system by allowing pumps to operate at speeds precisely matched to demand. Lowering equipment operating speeds also saves on energy and maintenance costs. For further energy-saving ideas, talk to an ITT RCW dealer, distributor, or installer about water circulators that use 68% less energy than standard models and versatile e-SV™ vertical multi-stage pumps, the most energy efficient pump in its class.
