Data centre immersion cooling involves directly immersing IT hardware in a non-conductive liquid such as 3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids.
Heat generated by the electronic components is directly and efficiently transferred to the fluid, reducing the need for active cooling components, such as interface materials, heat sinks and fans that are common in air cooling.

Help improve data centre energy efficiency (often the largest electricity cost for a data centre) by up to 97%.*
Improved cooling capacity means you can position electronics closer together — so you can fit 10 times the computer density in a given space. This opens the possibilities of where you can put a data centre.*
With greater thermal efficiency, you can increase processing power and reduce latency beyond the limits of air cooling.*
Run your electronics at full capacity with less wear and tear. Liquid immersion cooling helps eliminate airborne contaminants and simplifies thermal design to reduce moving parts.*
Less power used means less electricity needed, which in turn means less fuel used and fewer emissions. Smaller data centres save construction materials and maintenance. If your goal is a more sustainable data centre, 3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids make these outcomes possible and feature
Building a data centre that uses immersion cooling doesn’t compromise safety for your operator. 3M designs all 3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids to feature
