The Challenge

The data center, which had been running since the 1960s, required an expansion and upgrade to the water-cooling system without rendering the servers inoperable.

The Solution

Aquatherm’s PP-R material, which is bonded using heat fusion, provided a solution that was both fast and safe.

“The number one reason we opted to use it on this project was the application inside the room. We couldn’t shut down the system and needed a product that could go under the floor, be reliable, and that didn’t require soldering or welding.”

– Gene Ellis, Mechanical Engineer, CSU Campus Facilities Management, Fort Collins, CO
