Modine Invests in Liquid Cooling to Combat Rising Heat Loads

Leading thermal management provider Modine has invested in liquid cooling technology from TMG Core to support high-density data centre applications

Modine has acquired assets from leading data centre hardware and solutions company TMG Core so that it can expand its data centre liquid cooling opportunities.

The investment adds single and two phase immersion cooling technologies to Modine's portfolio, further cementing the company's position as a complete cooling solutions provider.

As data centre heat loads continue to rise, industry leaders are looking for new and improved ways to cool their facilities down. Ensuring this fast became a sustainability priority for the data centre sector in 2023, so Modine will be keen to continue to implement these cooling solutions moving forward.

Capitalising on a fast-moving liquid cooling market

The liquid cooling market is only continuing to expand into 2024. Liquid immersion cooling in particular involves submerging IT servers in tanks filled with non-conductive fluid, enabling increased computing density.

This cooling solution has been hailed as reducing energy and water consumption, in addition to offering the potential for reclaiming heat. Lightwave in particular reports that this solution also serves edge data centre applications where data processing must be closer to the source to reduce latency, such as autonomous vehicles for example.

An investment by Modine at this scale positions the company to capitalise on the fast-paced liquid cooling market, which has been forecast to reach US7.8bn by 2028.

Modine is already an established diversified global leader in innovative thermal management solutions. It has specifically purchased intellectual property and other specific assets from TMG Core, a specialist in single- and two-phase liquid immersion cooling technology for data centres with high-density computing requirements.

“Modine's investment in liquid immersion cooling technology advances our strategy to expand our global data centre product offering and capture market opportunities that help us achieve our long-term growth targets,” said Neil Brinker, President and Chief Executive Officer of Modine. 

“This investment strengthens Modine's position in the rapidly growing data centre market, providing our customers with advanced solutions to support high-density, accelerated computing applications, such as generative artificial intelligence, 5G and machine learning.”

Solving the ‘heat problem’

The acquisition will ultimately aid Modine in expanding upon its liquid cooling offerings. It already offers Airedale by Modine, which provides flexible and high efficiency data centre cooling solutions. 

Mission-critical cooling has been Airdale’s main focus since 1974 and its range of air conditioning solutions have been designed for a wide range of applications where high precision cooling is essential, which includes a range of data centres from single server rooms to hyperscale.

Modine systems approach and ability to combine hardware and software ensures that a data centre can work smarter, not harder, to offer customers more cooling for less power, as well as ensuring a stable environment and availability 24/7.

IT equipment within a data centre generates a considerable amount of heat due to the constant operation of servers and other hardware. It is essential for businesses to ensure that its systems are not only safe to use, but are not using excessive amounts of energy by remaining sustainable.

“Modine's investment in liquid immersion cooling technology expands the innovative solutions our Airedale brand can offer throughout the thermal chain, allowing us to cover air, liquid and hybrid systems,” says Eric McGinnis, President of Modine Climate Solutions. 

“Our customers lean on us to help them solve the heat problem in next-generation, mission-critical IT applications where they need to maximise processing efficiency while complying with increasingly strict emissions and energy efficiency requirements. 

“We look forward to working with our key customers and partners in this increasingly critical area, supplying complete systems with intuitive controls that are manufactured and supported globally.”
