Bitmain Launches Antminer S9 Hydro, a Pioneering Water Cooled Miner
Well-known cryptocurrency equipment provider Bitmain today officially released its flagship product Antminer S9 Hydro, the eighth product launched this year after the introduction of the Antminer S9i, ANTBOX, and Z9mini, etc. The Antminer S9 Hydro also pioneers a water cooled system, creating a new mining model with low noise and high energy savings. This new miner supports the SHA256 algorithm, and can mine mainstream digital currencies such as BTC and BCH.

Brand-new water cooling system with stable performance and high reliability
The Antminer S9 Hydro has a rated hashrate of 18T, and a wall power consumption of about 1,728W. Unlike traditional air cooled miners, the S9 Hydro adopts a water cooled system for heat dissipation and can mine along with a specific power source: the APW5.
Individuals or families can use a S9 Hydro-Hex external water circulation module for heat dissipation, while in large mining farms, low noise and high energy-saving mining effects can be achieved with an outdoor water source.
For the first time, the Antminer S9 Hydro is adopting the most innovative water cooling system design available for heat dissipation. Thanks to its customized and high-precision water cooling module, the S9 Hydro can support the direct introduction of an outdoor water source that meets its water quality requirements, quickly cooling down the computing boards and other components inside the miner. During operation, the chip temperature difference is only around 5°C, which can greatly improve the performance and stability of the miner.
Focusing mainly on noise reduction and energy saving, the Antminer S9 Hydro helps to decrease the maintenance cost of mining farms
The Antminer S9 Hydro also performs strongly in terms of noise reduction. The water cooling system reduces not only the internal temperature of the miner, but also most of its noise during operation. Relevant data shows that, under the same working temperature, the S9 Hydro can decrease noise by up to 20dB compared with air cooled miners.
In large mining farms equipped with an outdoor water source, the chip temperature reduction will help save about 8-12% in electricity, an obvious energy cost-saving advantage. Unlike the use of fans in air cooled miners, the water cooling system can directly enter the inside of the miner to dissipate heat, ensuring long-term operation stability.
In addition, the S9 Hydro also has the advantages of dustproofing and easy maintenance. More than 95% of its power consumption can be moved external via the water circulation system, which greatly reduces the required air volume of the miner, effectively avoids dust deposits inside the machine, and decreases the risk of short circuit or corrosion of internal components. The S9 Hydro’s innovative design contributes to easier maintenance of large mining farms and the reduction of operating costs.
The Antminer S9 Hydro is officially on sale from today.
