Immersion Cooling

Immersion Cooling

Immersion cooling is the process of immersing electronic hardware in a non-conductive liquid such as Engineered Fluids Electrocool or 3M Fluorinert FC-43. Data Centers are among the largest users of immersion cooling to lower their overall energy consumption.

As computing power continues to increase, so does the need to remove heat from those computing systems. The traditional method of using fans is loud, and it also loses efficiency as the ambient temperature increases. Immersion cooling eliminates the need for fans and heat sinks, and offers a more energy efficient method of cooling while eliminating the noise from fans.

Industries and Applications

Testing Specifications

Samtec Interconnects are used in a variety of industries and are used in many different environments. Because of this, Samtec has introduced testing its connectors for immersion cooling applications in addition to the standard qualification testing that interconnect systems are tested towards.

Additional Tests Included for Immersion Cooling Applications:

  • Mating/Unmating/Durability (Humidity, LLCR, Thermal Age and Thermal Shock)
  • Insulation Resistance/Dielectric Withstanding Voltage (IR/DWV)
  • Current Carrying Capacity
  • Current Cycling
