With an exponential growth in data traffic comes the need for clean, efficient, and sustainable cooling technologies to expand data rooms. In 2012, Bell Canada was facing a big challenge: most of their server room cooling systems were using synthetic refrigerants — either HCFCs or HFC. The company needed to find an alternative cooling solution that was both sustainable and cost-effective.
A suitable alternative to synthetic refrigerants, M&M Carnot’s patented AQUILON™ technology cools data center rooms without the requirements of a compressor, pump, or added fresh air. By using R-744, a natural refrigerant, the AQUILON™ solution was sustainable, cost-effective, and eliminated any future phase-outs.
