Emerson Power Network
In 2012, when Emerson Network Power first proposed their pumped refrigerant economization solution to Digital Realty, only air and water coolants were approved for data center economization. For nine months, Emerson and Digital Realty worked together to explore the energy savings and operational performance benefits of a pumped refrigerant system and compared it to that of a chilled water system.
Working together, we won acceptance for an environmentally significant thermal management solution that delivered energy efficient and water saving performance. That same solution makes great business sense.

This case study covers Emerson Network Power moving from a water-cooled thermal management system to one that uses pumped refrigerant. Emerson Network Power partnered with Digital Realty to the energy savings and operational performance benefits of a pumped refrigerant system and compared it to that of a chilled water system. The Liebert DSE system has now been deployed at Digital Realty data centers in California, Virginia, Texas, and Australia, with Europe exploring the advantages of the solution.
