CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The data center is transforming. Lubrizol and Intel® have come together as industry partners to develop the industry’s first hydrocarbon collaboration for immersion technology. Lubrizol is proud to announce the new CompuZol™ immersion fluid solutions, which will be warrantied on Intel Xeon® and Core™ microarchitectures.

The CompuZol™ family of immersion cooling fluid solutions addresses the limitations posed by today’s air-cooled methods in data centers by delivering increased thermal management capabilities and enabling increased infrastructure density. Using CompuZol™ directly at the source can reduce data center cooling costs and provide a more sustainable solution for future growth. This partnership with industry leaders has provided strong evidence that, when we work together, we can deliver as much as 30% power efficiency in most of today’s data centers.

“The launch of CompuZol™ and partnership with Intel is part of a multi-year effort to improve power consumption in data centers throughout the world,” said Deb Langer, Senior Vice President, Corporate Ventures at Lubrizol. “We have come together to collaborate with industry partners, Submer and GRC, to develop an industry solution working very closely with leading OEMs.”

The launch of CompuZol™ represents the next important step in the development journey of immersion fluid solutions tailor-formulated and specifically developed for use in immersion cooling applications. Lubrizol has partnered with world-leading OEMs in the microchip, infrastructure, and tank industries to enhance the immersion cooling value proposition and the output has been a demonstrable reduction in energy costs, total cost of ownership, and concerns about reliability and serviceability.

“This relationship with Lubrizol and integration of CompuZol™ into our process is part of a multiyear engineering validation and optimization engagement to drive transformational change in the efficiencies of next generation data centers,” said Mohan Kumar, Engineering Fellow at Intel. “The opportunity to unlock energy efficiency and ultimately energy re-use is a powerful sustainability story moving forward.”

These partnerships are the latest of several for the Lubrizol Corporate Ventures team in the area of Thermal Management and Data Center Immersion Fluids.
