HSB 127 Data Center Refrigerant spill

HSB Data Center Room 127
We had an unexpected leak of refrigerant from one of the air conditioning units mounted in the ceiling. A pressure release valve that is supposed to let air bleed out of the lines stuck open and emptied refrigerant onto the floor and under the floor in HSB 127 this morning. The stationary engineers and building service staff have cleaned the mess and none of the servers in the room were affected. We are however now running with the old air conditioning unit and one of the newer overhead units. There is a sign on the door to use the helpdesk entrance because the floor is still a little slick.
