Understanding the TCO, material compatibility, safety, environmental impact, IT maintenance, and handling characteristics of dielectric fluids are key to choosing the right liquid cooling technology for your applications. Oils and fluorocarbon fluids are two types of dielectric fluids used in immersive liquid cooling technologies. In this paper, we discuss the characteristics and tradeoffs of these two types of dielectric fluids to help data center designers and operators make informed decisions.
