A huge main trend is going on in the data center sector, moving forward boosting energy saving and related to the adoption of immersion liquid cooling solutions, which in Tempco have been already developed using TCOIL dimple jacket exchangers.
Tempco has already introduced the concept of PUE, defined as the ratio of the total amount of energy used by a data center facility to the energy actually delivered to computing devices. Currently, the PUE value is an important cost factor that data center architects must consider when evaluating the energy efficiency of an IDC, also becoming a necessary condition for compliance. Best practices demonstrate that the switch to immersion liquid cooling solutions can increase the energy saving by 12,8% in a data center, reducing PUE value under 1,09.
The achievable saving is even higher, because a liquid cooling system in data centers eliminates the use of server fans, increasing the energy efficiency up to 21,5% and reducing noise levels inside the IDC, turning it into a very quiet and efficient environment. The main advantage of immersion liquid cooling is that it allows to use a fluid at less low temperatures compared to the low temperatures required by air-cooled IDC scenarios.
