How It Works

In LiquidCool’s solution, off-the shelf server components are sealed inside an aluminum leak-proof case. The case is filled with dielectric fluid that is safe to use with electronics, completely submerging the server components inside. The fluid is pumped in from an external coolant distribution unit (CDU), entering the sealed case through dripless quick-disconnect hoses.

The liquid coolant enters at about 115°F, circulates through the server case, and returns to the CDU at about 135°F. The heat removed from the server components can be ejected from the building via a dry cooler, or reclaimed for other use, such as heating the data center itself.
