Following Successful Large-Scale Installation, D&K Begins Manufacturing and Shipping CHILLDYNE Cooling Distribution Units (CDUs) in Quantity
San Diego – (Nov. 9, 2017) – D&K Engineering, an international company providing Total Commercialization Solutions® for products and instruments that have high innovation content and complex manufacturing lifecycles, today announced its client Chilldyne has successfully installed a $1.25 million direct-to-chip liquid cooling system in a South Korean national lab. Chilldyne’s technologies were designed specifically to eliminate the risks associated with liquid cooling while keeping deployment costs low and reducing data center operating costs. D&K designed the Chilldyne Cool-Flo® system in partnership with Chilldyne engineers. Now that the system has been successfully deployed, D&K will begin building and shipping Cool-Flo systems in quantity at its ISO-certified facility.
“We are pleased that our patented liquid cooling system was included in this $1.25 million customer installation. This is the second large-scale order we have sold to our Korean reseller partner Mirhenge following a similar system installed in 2015,” said Chilldyne’s President and CEO Robert Spears.
The Chilldyne Cool-Flo system provides water under negative pressure to cool 660kW of power. Each server blade is equipped with a Radeon R9 Fury X GPU card, injection molded GPU manifolds and custom Chilldyne cold plates with internal turbulators. The Cool-Flo system uses six Cooling Distribution Units (CDUs) in a 4+2 redundant back-up configuration to deliver water to the 25 racks and 300 Cirrascale servers.
“The Chilldyne partnership is a perfect example of D&K Engineering’s flexible model of engagement allowing a seamless transition from Chilldyne’s design team to D&K’s manufacturing to successfully build Cool-Flo systems. D&K is excited to be part of the successful installation of the Cool-Flo,” Scott Dennis, Chief Executive Officer D&K Engineering.
