FAQ

What is Immersion Cooling?

Also known as liquid submersion cooling, it is the practice of submerging computer components (or full servers) in a thermally, but not electrically conductive liquid (dielectric coolant).

Is Immersion Cooling more efficient than air cooling?

Yes. As Immersion Cooling uses a thermally conductive liquid, it is ca. 1400 time more efficient than air cooling at transporting heat.

What kind of liquid does Submer use?

Submer uses their own in-house developed synthetic dielectric fluid (SmartCoolant) which does not conduct electricty, but is extremely efficient at dissipating heat and protects hardware from dust/sand particles and from moisture.

How often does the fluid (SmartCoolant) need to be changed?

With a lifespan of 15-20 years, Submer’s SmartCoolant is designed to see multiplegenerations of IT Hardware.

Does SmartCoolant evaporate?

No. Submer's SmartCoolant does not evaporate at room or at operating temperatures.

1999

Is Submer's SmartCoolant harmful?

No. SmartCoolant is non-toxic, biodegradable, innocuous to hardware and is classified as a food-grade fluid.

Is Submer's SmartCoolant harmful to the It Hardware?

No. On the contrary, it protects it from external elements such as moisture, dust/sand particles and extends its lifespan while reducing IT Hardware failures.

What is the PUE of a datacenter?

Power usage effectiveness (PUE) is a ratio that describes how efficiently a computer data center uses energy; specifically, how much energy is used by the computing equipment (in contrast to cooling and other overhead).

What is the Critical Load of a datacenter?

Critical IT load is the total power required by servers, storage, network and other devices in the data centre that must keep running if there is a loss of utility power. It doesn’t include the load due to mechanical systems, lighting and other requirements.
