Chilldyne’s negative pressure failure tolerant system is what allows the benefits of liquid cooling to be realized
Negative pressure systems don’t create these kind of pressure spikes because the tubing used is very resilient and the coolant during startup has many bubbles in it. Also, the racks don’t use shut off connectors. The Chilldyne system lets air into the coolant system when it shuts down, so that when it restarts there are no worries about water hammer.
Thermal Resistance vs. Mass Flow Rate:Today, thermal engineers are working to close the gap between the current air-cooled heat sink technology and the theoretical ideal air–cooled heat sink. At Chilldyne, we have already closed this gap and much more. Because our liquid cooling technology is significantly more efficient than air, our focus is on lowering the cost of the overall system.
Because the Cool-Flo system operates under negative pressure, the system does not require expensive, pressure-tested connections.
Low Cost, High Volume
The Cool-Flo system utilizes low cost silicone/urethane tubing and low-tech connections, minimizing cost for high volume use.
Chilldyne’s patented pistonless pump contains no moving parts, reducing maintenance costs.
The modified, finned heat sinks act as a free “rear-door heat exchanger” for the rest of the data center, so the entire server gains the benefit of ancillary cooling of components even though they are not directly liquid cooled.
Return on Investment
The return on investment in Chilldyne’s Cool-Flo system will vary, depending on the current operating characteristics of the data center such as PUE and the cost of power. A 1-2 year payback on Cool-Flo System is possible.
