Social Media Technology Data Centre Keeping data centres optimised


Across the globe, large data centres house the servers that power our internet lives. These vital systems maintain the servers that host our favourite websites and social media. Large data centres rely on complex cooling systems to maintain the optimum temperatures for this essential equipment. Keeping the world connected is an important job and even minor service interruptions can cause significant problems for organisations who rely on them.

Detailed Description

Accurate temperature control is an essential part of keeping data centre systems optimised and delivering their maximum capacity. Chilled water systems are increasingly used to cool electrical equipment in these centres. Backflow prevention is an important part of any chilled water system as it ensures that any contaminated water from the system does not mix with the main water supply. For this social media technology company data centre project, our Watts BA4760 RPZ valves are installed to deliver safe backflow prevention. The RPZ backflow preventer is designed to protect drinking water systems from contamination by polluted liquids which do not present toxic or microbiological risks to human health, as defined by the health authorities. It features 3 zones - upstream, middle and downstream chamber - each of which is fitted with a pressure plug.
