With the validation of ENEOS’ immersion cooling fluids, GRC asserts that it will not only have additional, globally available fluids, but also a forum for the two companies to continue to collaboratively develop and leverage new fluid formulations and advancements.
“ENEOS is excited to be part of GRC’s important initiative to strengthen fluid performance and efficiency for data center liquid immersion cooling,” said Toru Konishi, company president of ENEOS Lubricants Company. “GRC’s validation of our immersion cooling fluids will allow data center users to operate systems more safely and confidently while increasing efficiency. Additionally, we will help enable safer fluid operation and add value to the broader data center ecosystem by studying and advancing fluid development together with GRC.”
ENEOS not only boasts to be Japan’s largest lubricant company but is also among the world’s leading lubricant manufacturers. With ENEOS’ participation in the ElectroSafe Fluid Partner Program, GRC says that its customers will benefit from ENEOS’ vast technical expertise accumulated over decades of lubricant development.
“GRC and ENEOS have been collaborating for several years, and we look forward to expanding and strengthening our relationship through their participation in GRC’s ElectroSafe Fluid Partner Program,” said Ben Smith, chief product officer at GRC. “ENEOS and GRC will be able to offer additional fluid options to data centres globally while also continuing to work together to improve existing fluids and develop new formulations that improve operational uptime and efficiency.”
The ElectroSafe Fluid Partner Program evaluates and validates dielectric fluids designed for use in GRC’s immersion cooling systems, ensuring globally available, environmentally responsible solutions that not only meet material compatibility, performance, and safety, but also ensure that they meet customer expectations for improved data centre energy efficiency, cooling capacity, and reliability.
With the adoption of immersion cooling accelerating, new fluid formulations continue to be introduced to the market, and it is paramount that data centre end-users have the trust and confidence that the fluids they are using meet rigorous standards.
