Data Center Cooling Tower

Noun
|
Sounds like: "da-ta cen-ter cool-ing tow-er"

A data center cooling tower is used to remove heat generated by IT equipment within a data center by utilizing the process of evaporative cooling.

Data center evaporative cooling using a cooling tower involves using ambient air and water evaporation to dissipate heat from the data center, where warm water from the facility is circulated to the top of the cooling tower and exposed to air, causing the water to cool through evaporation before being recirculated back to the data center for cooling. This process repeats continuously to maintain an optimal temperature in the data center.

What Are the Benefits of a Data Center Cooling Tower?

There are many ways to cool a data center off from the excessive heat it generates. But what makes the use of a data center cooling tower stand out from other methods?

  • Increased cooling efficiency compared to traditional air cooling methods
  • Lower operating costs because of reduced energy consumption
  • Scalability as they can handle increased cooling requirements as a data center expands
  • Sustainability by using water as the primary cooling fluid (rather than refrigerants), ultimately reducing a data center’s carbon footprint
  • Flexibility by being able to work in combination with other cooling methods

Simplify Data Center Cooling with DCIM Software

Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software optimizes the data center’s energy use, asset utilization and performance, as well as space utilization, which are all important elements of a cooling system that uses a data center cooling tower. DCIM collects, reports, and trends on data from environmental sensors such as humidity and temperature. This allows managers to obtain a clearer understanding of when to alter temperature set points and simplify how they manage airside economization. DCIM makes it easy to visualize hotspots with thermal time-lapse video, avoid overcooling and wasting energy resources, keep cabinets within ASHRAE guidelines, and increase data center sustainability.
