3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid
Outstanding environmental profile with no ozone depletion, GWP of less than 1, and an atmospheric life of 5 days.
Commercial Air Filters
3M’s filters use both mechanical blocking and electrostatic technology to capture particles throughout the full depth of the filter, resulting in:
- Low pressure drop design > Potential energy consumption reduction
- Longer filter life > Less waste
3M™ Twin Axial Cable Assemblies
Twin Axial Cable Assemblies offer excellent routability, allowing for:
- Improved airflow, lowering energy costs
- Higher-density packaging
3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids for Liquid Immersion Cooling
Offers advantages in:
- Energy and water efficiency
- Higher density (less wasted space)
In one installation in Hong Kong, a PUE of 1.02 was achieved. The energy consumption for cooling was reduced by more than 95% and space was reduced by 10 times compared to traditional data centers.
