At Gannon University, construction is underway for I-HACK, Institute for Health and Cyber Knowledge. ‘I-HACK will serve as the global headquarters for academic, industry and business owners to design, integrate and protect cybernetic intelligence and data systems worldwide.’ [1] Originally scheduled to open in Fall 2020, the timeline has been extended until February 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The data center is approximately 12,000 sqft.

With the installation of the Guntner ADC HD (High Density) Dry Cooler, H&V Equipment Sales was able to eliminate issues of open towers, conserve water and allow the chiller to operate utilizing condenser water reset. Condenser water reset allows the chiller to have efficiencies as low as 0.1 kw per ton when the condenser water is four degrees above the chilled water temperature.  The Adiabatic Dry Cooler / High Density was designed to have maximum power and efficiency within a minimal footprint.
