Liquid Submersion Cooling

Liquid submersion cooling technology places servers and other IT equipment inside nonconductive coolant-filled tanks. The coolant dissipates the heat as it circulates through the system. Liquids have superior thermal efficiency, compared with air, and they provide quiet, uniform, secure and effective cooling. Liquid submersion cooling technologies are an option in data centers where high-density computing is required, and traditional air cooling cannot handle such a high heat load density.
