Arizona Public Power Utility picks Aquatherm pipe for pilot data-center program

Arizona Public Power Utility picks Aquatherm pipe for pilot modular data-center program chilled water piping system at the Salt River project DataStation.

Aquatherm used their famous Blue Pipe for the project.

The Challenge:

A pilot modular data-center program needed a leak-free, chilled water piping system to keep its expensive IT equipment cool and safe.

The Solution:

A mechanical contractor used Aquatherm's unique heat-fusion welding method to build a leak-free piping system and a McElroy DataLogger to ensure each connection was fused properly.

  • The advantages of using Aquatherm:

  • Ninety-six percent of the Aquatherm piping system was prefabricated, imporving the contractor's tight schedule

  • Aquatherm's quick check estimator provided an estimate of the project's total installed costs, showing how much the contractor could save on labor using Aquatherm vs. Carbon Steel

  • Aquatherm's unique heat-fusion welding technique created a leak-free piping system

I couldn't tell you how many fusion-welded joints we had, but we had zero leaks. The results were excellent.
