Data-center cooling technology developed by OptiCool Technologies was recently installed in the Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation. The technology, which uses an oil-free, pumped refrigerant and a modular cooling-unit design that increases cooling capacity and decreases overall energy, has saved RIT more than $30,000. OptiCool is a start-up company that recently graduated from RIT’s Clean Energy Incubator. RG&E recognized RIT’s achievement at a news conference on June 29. Above, David Brown, director of technical solutions with OptiCool, discusses some of the equipment.
