Honeywell has announced the launch of its new Solstice E-Cooling, a liquid heat transfer agent that is capable of cooling high-performance electronics such as data center servers.
Solstice E-Cooling is described as a two-phased liquid cooling system that removes heat from electronic applications while reducing environmental impact. This cooling system allows energy-efficient and uniform cooling, optimized heat rejection, and reduced pumping power than single-phase liquid cooling systems.
Solstice E-Cooling is also a dielectric solution, serving as an electrical insulator for equipment to prevent damage from contact with fluids, the company adds.
“Honeywell works to develop solutions that help the world prepare for the future, and with the global demand for more data and processing, there is an overwhelming need for efficient and effective cooling mechanisms,” said Chris LaPietra, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Stationary Refrigerants.
“With Solstice E-Cooling, data centers and other high-performance electronics can increase efficiency while lowering costs and their carbon footprint.”
Honeywell further stated that the Solstice E-Cooling is the newest addition to its revolutionary line of next-generation low-global-warming potential refrigerant technologies. Also, the new technology is now available and under preview at the Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Expo (AHR) in Orlando, Florida.
Honeywell promises that its new heat transfer agents will lower operational costs for applications such as data centers that use high-performance servers as well as, improve cooling capabilities while minimizing environmental impact.
Before now, the Company has been responsible for the development of heat transfer agents, including R-410A, Solstice yf, Solstice ze, and Solstice zd. Honeywell refrigerants are distributed globally under the Solstice and Genetron® brands.
It was also announced that the Company and its suppliers have completed a $900 million investment program in R&D and new capacity based on Honeywell’s hydrofluoro-olefin (HFO) technology.
The new Solstice E-Cooling is an innovative breakthrough for Honeywell and pitches improved efficiency.
