Data centre immersion cooling

We live in a digital world, using devices varying from smartphones and office PCs to autonomous vehicles. These all rely on data centres for storage or data processing.  

These data centres have a high energy consumption, water use, and carbon footprint. It is estimated that on average data centres consume as much energy as 7 million homes combined. 38% of each data centre's energy use is for air cooling electronics. 

By immersing IT hardware in data centres in a non-conductive fluorochemical liquid, the need for chiller-based air cooling is eliminated. This reduces energy consumption by 95% and minimises water use. From a performance, safety and life-cycle perspective, no other alternatives as favourable as PFAS-based cooling fluids exist.
