CoolIT Systems, Inc. announced the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted the company three new patents for liquid cooling. With these, CoolIT Systems has reached its 50th patent milestone.
The three newly issued patents include USPTO 9057567 Microchannel Coldplate, USPTO 9052252 Leak Detection System and USPTO 9055697 Air Conditioning System Control.
“USPTO 9057567 Microchannel Coldplate protects a sophisticated method of managing the fluid flow through a microchannel cold plate to maximize the efficient transfer of heat from a microprocessor into a liquid flow while minimizing the pressure drop and the physical size of the cold plate. This invention further ensures the exclusive advantage that CoolIT liquid cooling system designs have over competitive systems by minimizing the pumping power to effectively cool thermally dense processors of today and tomorrow,” according to the company.
“USPTO 9052252 Leak Detection System is a sensor system compatible with all existing server platforms that provides instant notification if any moisture or condensation were to form inside the server and USPTO 9055697 Air Conditioning System Control describes a method to automatically map and monitor the temperature distribution in an entire data center. By using this technology, a data center operator can optimize the cooling resources on a very granular basis and therefore minimize the power consumption required to adequately and efficiently cool the datacenter equipment,” the company added.
