Future Is Near Leak Detection in the Age of Liquid Cooling Cover.png

Data center rack density has significantly increased over the past decade. According to the 2020 State of the Data Center report, the average rack density jumped to 8.2 kW / rack, an increase of almost a kilowatt(kW) or 12% over the previous year. The rise of demand for AI applications and chip manufacturer boosting processing power is expected to push the power density in excess of 15 kW / rack by 2025. Such energy consumption growth is going to require a significant change in cooling technology.

Liquid cooling technology has come a long way in the past decade to potentially be the promising solution to the rising cooling needs. The improved heat transfer efficiency leads to significant energy reduction making it a welcome addition for both economic and environmental reasons. But migrating from the ubiquitous air cooling technology to liquid cooling will require data center engineers take a long-term view to the data center design that is flexible to incorporate new technologies. And a key area to consider is the liquid leak detection system to protect the rack and facility with risk of liquid leaks.
