Line Chemical Filter to Eliminate Volatile Organic Compounds From Servers

Thermal management of large mainframe servers is becoming increasingly more challenging as packaging becomes more densely populated electronically, as product footprints are reduced, and as chip thermal densities increase. This accounts for higher operating heat loads and overall results in an increasing net gain of product heat output. As heat increases, the individual components experience more net thermal energy. This energy can affect the product components with respect to induced chemical reactions and thermally driven volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. With ever increasing environmental awareness and ever increasing chemical regulatory requirements, VOC emission reductions are becoming critical, especially for those chemicals deemed to be harmful to human health. With internal and external requirements becoming more strict over time, it is becoming easier and easier to fail the VOC emission limits. It takes only a very slight amount of VOCs to fail. For VOCs like epichlorohydrin that are deemed to be carcinogenic, new techniques are needed to limit the VOC emissions and potential human exposures. This can be done by completely controlling all materials at the component level. This is not cost effective nor possible from a materials standpoint. Some of the very compounds that you need to limit a...
