Computer Cooling System Applications for Our Pumps
Computer cooling systems are essential in keeping computer hardware running smoothly. Heat produced by the internal components, dust and poor heat exchange can adversely affect system performance and incur a shutdown.
Our centrifugal magnetic drive pumps are crucial for cooling system operations. Heat produced by the internal components is excised to maintain operational temperature limits. The optimized flow rate quickly moves the coolant throughout the system. The design provides the strength needed to distribute liquid coolant from the lowest point of the system to the highest.
How to Choose a Water-Cooling Pump
Selecting an ideal water-cooling pump to dissipate built up heat in servers or other commercial computer systems involves multiple considerations. Some of these include:
- Pump Capabilities. Commercial computer end uses can vary from relatively simple payment processing systems to vast server farms. When selecting a pump, you should ensure that its capabilities match with your intended use case. What is the pump’s head? Its flow rate? Will these capabilities allow you to properly cool your setup?
- Stability. One of the greatest risks of any liquid-cooled computer is leakage, and while leaks depend on factors beyond merely the pump itself (e.g., piping, system design), the stability of the pump can contribute to it. If your pump produces too much vibration or isn’t carefully installed, it can contribute to leaks.
- Size. End users too often forget to incorporate the physical dimensions of the pump into their cooling system design, which can lead to easily avoidable complications.
Common uses for Water Cooling Pumps
Water cooling has been used extensively in industrial computer applications. In fact, Sundsvall Regional Hospital in central Sweden applied an ecological twist on the technology by employing melted snow in its cooling system. However, water cooling pumps have other applications beyond computer cooling, including:
- Cooling transmitters
- Cooling nuclear reactors
- Industrial water purification
- Fire protection
- Chemical manufacturing
- Food manufacturing
Indeed, pumps intended for water cooling can fill many different roles.
Air Cooler vs Water Cooler: Which One is Better and Why?
Determining whether air cooling or water cooling will work best for you depends on your end use. However, we can reference a few general principles to help you understand the advantages and disadvantages of both methods.
- Air cooling — which typically relies on fans or heat-dispersing heat sinks — to lower temperatures around heat-producing components. Air cooling is demonstrably cheaper and simpler to install and service than liquid cooling, which is likely the reason why it’s the predominant option in most consumer PCs. However, air cooling will often fall short when it comes to managing computers in a large industrial setting. Server farms and other related commercial applications typically generate a lot more heat than simple air dispersal can handle. That’s where liquid cooling comes into play.
- Liquid cooling always costs more than air cooling and involves more complicated equipment and installation, but it’s far more effective at eliminating heat generated by electronics. Additionally, the pump in a liquid-cooling system is often call its most important element because it regulates the speed at which the coolant flows through the system. Indeed, it’s the heartbeat of any liquid-cooling system.
