Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia Data Center - Philadelphia, PA
Wick Fisher White provided a high density cooling solution for the Data Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The Data Center’s raised floor could not handle the air quantities required to cool the blade server cabinets that were being installed by the IT department. These cabinets were spread throughout the 2,500 square foot critical space. Cooling units were installed in the equipment line-ups to supplement the cooling required to satisfy the space. The cooling units are served from a heat exchanger off the main hospital chilled water system. The blade server cabinets reject approximately 12 kW of heat each. The APC chilled water in row cooling units was placed in the areas of the increased heat loads. The APC solution was recommended from a previous study completed by WFW where we indicated that the air distribution was not adequate to satisfy the increased load.
