Case Study

Keeping University Computers Cool

Hampshire engineering firm Aqua Cooling has successfully installed its state-of-the-art hybrid cooling system for Swansea University in Wales as an integral part of its £450 million new Bay Campus development. Combined with computer cabinet rear doors, Fareham-based Aqua Cooling’s hybrid adiabatic coolers feature the company’s Queen’s Award-winning guaranteed leak prevention technology (LPS) which allows the effective and worry-free use of a refrigerant-free water cooling system within the sensitive data centre cooling environment.

The hybrid system also represents a significant technological stride forward by providing an effective, cost-effective water-treatment free ambient cooling system that eliminates the emission of excess water spray and standing water. The minimal amount of water that is produced by the cooling process is treated by ultra violet filters incorporated into the system. Swansea University is the first university to adopt Aqua Cooling’s eco-friendly energy efficient hybrid cooling system in its data centre, although Aqua’s installation project manager, Mike Lloyd-Hole, expects other academic institutions to follow suit.
