Liquid Immersion Cooling for Data Centers

Liquid Immersion Cooling for Data Centers

 

Liquid immersion cooling is a revolutionary cooling technology that is bridging the gap between the conventional data center and data centers of the future. It increases equipment efficiency and reduces energy consumption, which will not only reduce the power bill of the data center but also give advantage with respect to carbon credit. Liquid immersion cooling solutions are capable of handling the growing density of data centers effectively and have shown significant benefits for its users. Liquid immersion cooling, on one hand, allows capacity planning for the data center and provides environmental resilience to data center equipment. On the other hand, it removes the limitations of rack density, power availability, and location issues.

 

So how exactly do liquid immersion cooling solutions function, reduce OPEX and CAPEX, increase cooling capacity, and enable scaling?

Liquid immersion cooling solutions provide direct cooling to data center equipment by immersing them in a bath of propriety, non-conductive, dielectric coolant – Electro Safe™. This coolant with 1200x the heat capacity of air absorbs the heat from the servers. The tubes of coolant keep circulating between the bath and a heat exchanger maintaining the temperature of the coolant and ensuring it doesn’t boil away.

Liquid Immersion Cooling Solutions do away with conventional data center fixtures like chillers, CRACs, CRAHs, raised floors, etc. , ensuring in a highly energy-efficient data center with a cooling capacity of up to 100 kW/rack.

Liquid immersion cooling includes all the advantages of the century-old air cooling, minus the exuberant costs, power bills, risks, and complexities. Your data centers in their highest capacity can attain the highest level of efficiency with liquid immersion cooling solutions.

Why Liquid Immersion Cooling?

The data centers are evolving to process the plethora of data being generated by next-gen technologies like IoT, Content Delivery Networks, Industry 4.0, etc,  which is only rising with the complete adoption of 5G, Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, etc. This has resulted in much higher rack densities making the conventional cooling technologies redundant. This has also multiplied the energy consumption of the data center, becoming a cause of concern economically and environmentally. Liquid Immersion cooling caters to both these problems, becoming the cooling method of choice for the data centers of the future as it sustainably accommodates rack density.

Advantages of Liquid Immersion Cooling

Apart from the obvious benefits of making the data center greener and significantly reducing the operational costs, liquid immersion cooling has multiple advantages for a data center

  • Reduces PUE of the data center
  • Increases the shelf-life of all the data center equipment by protecting it from all kinds of contamination
  • Maintains a stable and consistent thermal environment for hardware
  • Makes for a quieter and thermally amicable data center
  • Works perfectly in the harsher surrounding of edge deployments
  • Accommodates rack densities and solves space constraints of a data center
