At RMD we recommend chilled water in large data centres where high density cooling is required. These systems use water in the chiller system rather than refrigerant gas.
Chilled water is more efficient for data centres because:
- Free cooling using the air outside can be used with chilled water systems
- Easily scalable due to use of valves
- Lower running cost after initial installation
- More environmentally friendly
Chilled water systems are more expensive to install than DX cooling and are less compact. However, organisations will see a lower operational cost which will return savings for years to come. Return on investment (ROI) calculation using the chilled water solution can be included into our site survey service.
Our service team can answer any questions you may have about our low and high density options and our commitment to energy efficient cooling.
