SLIC Solutions for Data Centers, Colocation Facilities, & Central Offices

Data Center and colocation operators face a serious challenge in how to keep their facilities relevant in the face of faster and hotter compute platforms. The latest CPUs, GPUs, and servers are getting both smaller in footprint, faster in processing, and therefore substantially hotter than ever before.

Traditional methods of air-cooling can no longer keep pace with thermal management requirements of these new devices.In addition, the space, complexity, maintenance, capital and operating costs of a traditional CRAC retrofit destroys margins while not even buying enough head-room to ever recover the investment.

What is needed is an entirely new approach to data center cooling. An approach that:

  • Enables PUEs of 1.03-1.05 without exotic locations, engineering, or hyper scale
  • Reduces capital investment by up to 40%
  • IT Room footprints up to 80%
  • and Operating costs by up to 50%
  • While enabling off the shelf servers to achieve NEBs compliance with no additional engineering.

Single-phase, Liquid Immersion Cooling, known as SLIC is the solution.

SLIC is simple to deploy, operate, and maintain. There is no other data center cooling solution available that enables up to 1500kW/sq.ft of cooling & power in only 1,500sq.ft of IT space. SLIC can support over 200kW per rack and up to 96 blade servers in a 56RU rack, while also delivering a massive reduction in electrical power usage and on-going operating costs regardless of the number of servers deployed.

The future of 5G, AI, IoT, Mobile Edge Compute, Real-time services, Self-driving cars, Augmented Reality, Geophysical Engineering, and Movie and Graphics Rendering all rely on the use of GPUs and CPUs exceeding power densities from 250-500W per chip, in devices deployed in quantity right at the edge of the network. SLIC is the only cooling solution that provides the ability to scale up or down on a linear cost and operations basis to enable these applications to live at the Edge.

SLIC solution for Datacenter

A closed system with 8x 850W blade servers operating in a 4U footprint. The system supports up to 2kW of heat rejection per device (up to 16kW per 4RU) utilizing Engineered Fluids' ElectroCool Dielectric Coolant flowing at 1L/kW/min @5psi.

Single-phase Liquid Immersion Cooling for cryptocurrency and  blockchain

Single-phase, Liquid Immersion Cooling for Cryptocurrency & BlockChain

Once you determine which coin to mine, there are only three factors that impact your ability to make a profit in cryptocurrency mining. While you cannot control the exchange rates, you must be hyper-focused on your hashrates and your power usage, if not you are literally allowing your potential profitably blow away in wind (or should we say fan noise)!

Single-phase, Liquid Immersion Cooling (SLIC) is the most cost effective way to get the maximum hashrate from any ASIC or GPU based miner. By immersing your mining hardware in our specially formulated BitCool BC-888 Dielectric Coolant you have the ability to dramatically reduce your overall power costs and dramatically increase your hashrates.

SLIC is so efficient because our purpose engineered BitCool Dielectric Coolant has more than 1,600x the heat density of air, By immersing your miners in BC-888 Dielectric Coolant you can eliminate all the air handling units, barn fans, A/C units, even the fans on the miners themselves (and by the way all those fans can consume up 35% of all the energy you are buying!).

In addition, because BitCool BC-888 is so efficient at removing heat you can safely overclock your miner's hashrate without endangering your expensive equipment. This is critical because if you are going to overclock you must keep your equipment within its safe operational temperature range or you risk catastrophic heat related failures.

One the best features of SLIC is of course the noise, or rather the lack of noise! When you eliminate all those fans, you instantly cut fan noise to zero, we guarantee your family, friends and neighbors will really appreciate the new silence, and so will you!

Engineered Fluids' SLICTank G4-2640 - 6 Tank Stack @ 1.2MW

Engineered Fluids' SLICTanks®

The High Performance Single-phase, Liquid Immersion Cooling System for Crypto-currency Mining & Blockchain Devices

Engineered Fluids' SLICTanks represent the most advanced designed single-phase, liquid immersion cooling tanks available today. The SLICTank Generation 4 design is the culmination of over 3 years and $500K in computational flow analysis to develop the optimal shape, flow, and design for increasing hash rate performance through the best fluid flow management and heat transfer performance!

Maximize your Hashing Performance!

The most important advantage provided by SLIC for crypto/blockchain is the ability to safety overclock your miners to increase hashing performance without exceeding the devices ASIC, GPU, or FPGA manufacturer's skin temperature (typically 100C). This allows you to safely hash faster while protecting your valuable equipment and reducing maintenance. The Engineered Fluids' SLICTank has been optimized to provide the highest flow rate and highest heat dissipation available using Engineerd Fluids' BitCool or ElectroCool Dielectric Coolants. Our proprietary, adjustable flow control management system ensures even and full flow to every device in a SLICTank providing maximum performance even when supporting various devices in a single tank.

Proprietary Non-Conductive, Low Thermal-Density Epoxy Construction

Engineered Fluids' SLICTanks are constructed entirely from our proprietary non-conductive, low thermal-density epoxy resin which we have formulated to be specifically compatible with our BitCool and ElectroCool coolants. This material and construction technique provides tremendous advantages over common steel and aluminum tank designs.

  • Our non-conductive epoxy material provide additional safety over steel or aluminum. Should a device come into contact with a conductive tank, the entire tank infrastructure including any metallic piping can become a high-voltage shock hazard which can be very difficult to trace. Our non-conductive materials and piping provide outstanding user safety by fully insulating any electrical shorts away from your technicians and isolating them to the device.
  • Our low thermal-density epoxy material provides outstanding thermal containment, keeping the waste heat in the tank enabling up to 98% effective thermal capture by the coolant. Compared to steel and aluminum tanks which act as heat radiators, thus requiring extensive A/C cooling due to radiated heat.
  • SLICTanks' unique design enable up to 80 3m tanks to be packed into a single 40ft shipping container.
  • Lightweight design enables stacking of up to 6 tanks high using standard commercial cantilever pallet racks, which allow for front loading of fully configured tanks into the rack using a forklift or side loader.
  • Three standard tank sizes are available: 8/24/48 S9 sized miners and custom tanks lengths up to 5800mm / 19ft are available for optimized support of specific devices.
  • Integrated flange support on both end caps allows the customer to choose from various pipe sizes and thread types depending on their regional standard including: NPT / DN / BSPP / BSPT ranging in size from 25mm-50mm / 1in - 2in. Flange hole cutting in end cap can be done in the field using off-the-shelf hole cutters, allowing for design and piping flexibility.
  • Fluid insertion and removal can be accomplished from either side or both sides of tank depending on length and fluid routing requirements. A tank overflow safety port is integrated into both end caps to prevent tank overflow.
  • Manufacturing scalability - Engineered Fluids can produce over 1,000 9m tanks per month with our current manufacturing infrastructure and we can scale to over 5,000 tanks within in 3 months.
