HBO Broadcasting Center

Project Name: HBO Broadcasting Center
Location: Hauppauge, New York
Type: Commercial Office & Data Center

This field study compared two mission critical Data Rooms. HBO’s Server#3 Room, was cooled using Hydromx HTF fluid and the other room, MPEG#4, was cooled using 40/60 Glycol/Water. The load difference between these rooms is 47.5%, with Server#3 having the larger load. kW consumption difference was 7.23% in favor of MPEG#4. Server#3, had 90% more free cooling hours than MPEG#4.

“After months of testing, I’m extremely excited to report the results were better than expected. We installed Hydromx® in two critical 20 tonne Dry Cooled Liebert systems and have found an overall saving of 35%.” Mr. Desmond Cooke, HBO Chief Engineer.
