NovecTM 7500 Engineered Fluid is a nonflammable fluid with very low global warming potential for use in heat transfer applications. Novec 7500 fluid shares many of the inertness and dielectric properties of perfluorocarbons (PFCs) and perfluoropolyethers (PFPEs), and is a viable option for replacing them in a wide array of applications.
This Novec fluid can be used in cooling of ion implanters, dry etchers and CVD machines in semiconductor and flat panel display manufacturing facilities.
The fluid may be used to cool semiconductor thermal shock and test equipment.
Because Novec 7500 fluid is compatible with most electronic components, it can be used in direct contact single- and two-phase cooling of supercomputers and sensitive military electronics, and to cool high voltage transformers and power electronics.
Novec 7500 fluid can also be used as an alternative to commonly used fluids in pharmaceutical and chemical manufacturing processes, such as freeze drying and reactor cooling.
The primary advantage of Novec 7500 fluid over a comparable PFC or PFPE, however, is reduced Global Warming Potential (GWP). Novec 7500 fluid has been developed as a low-GWP alternative to perfluorocarbon and perfluoropolyether heat transfer liquids.
Novec 7500 fluid is non-ozone-depleting and has been exempted from the U.S. EPA definition of a volatile organic compound (VOC) because it does not contribute to the formation of photochemical smog.
