With the help of MX3’s liquid immersion cooling systems, data centers can immerse entire IT devices in a non-conductive heat transfer fluid to transfer the heat directly from the heat source to the working fluid. This eliminates the need for cooling fans within each server and air conditioning equipment for the server room, reducing power consumption to a large extent. Besides, it also facilitates more server density in the same installation space, contributing to reductions in the total cost of ownership, while increasing the performance at the same time. “Our system allows data center operators to have five 19 U server racks instead of just one rack in the same area,” informs Chen. This enables the end-users to enjoy the benefits of enhanced scalability without increasing the cost.
Another advantage of a single-phased liquid immersion cooling system is the extended lifespan of the data center’s equipment.

Chen shares a customer success story of a cryptocurrency mining client that wanted to reduce electricity usage on their machines, which was increasing operational costs and also impacting the environment adversely. MX3 Data Centers offered three-fold benefits to the client that included removing the fans in the casing to reduce energy usage by 25 percent, rewriting software code to increase performance, and putting more equipment in the same area. “We not only helped the client save on energy consumption but also helped them enhance their performance significantly,” extols Chen.
Riding on the immense success of its immersion cooling system, MX3 Data Centers is raising capital for a 30-megawatt, 15000 square foot facility that can host equipment in an extremely dense environment. The company also plans to publish standards for the immersion cooling world and help new players build and deploy immersion cooling systems. Through these initiatives, the company is working toward accomplishing its goal to become the largest immersion cool data center in the U.S.
