Asperitas and Shell‘s new fluid is a result of two companies’ strategic fluid development partnership and long-standing research and development relationship that aims to reduce data center energy consumption. Shell Immersion Cooling Fluid S5 X is a synthetic, single-phase immersion cooling fluid made from gas using Shell’s gas-to-liquids technology. Shell Immersion Cooling Fluid S5 X is optimized for Asperitas’ natural-convection-driven immersion cooling solutions but can also be used in the pump/forced circulation systems of other providers.
Reduced carbon dioxide emissions and energy consumption
Shell Immersion Cooling Fluid S5 X is designed to reduce energy costs and emissions through its high cooling efficiency, excellent flow behavior as well as thermodynamic properties, and it is available across the immersion-cooling market. Eduardo de Azevedo, Shell product application specialist for immersion cooling fluids said:
“We are excited to bring this new product to the market. Our immersion cooling fluid can help to cut data center energy consumption and reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Gas-to-liquids technology is a sustainable alternative for the immersion cooling industry.”
Rolf Brink, Asperitas CEO said:
“Shell is our trusted partner for developing the immersion cooling fluid, a preferred partner for deployments and quality monitoring. With their decades of experience, there is a tremendous amount of value for our customers and strategic partners we can offer together.”
