  • Publication number: 20220341860
    Abstract: A system for detecting contamination in a two-phase immersion cooling system based on temperature differences between component surface temperature and fluid temperature, a previous component surface temperature and a present component surface temperature and a component surface temperature and a component surface temperature threshold value. Large differences between the component surface temperature and the fluid temperature or between the component surface temperature and a previous component surface temperature or a component surface temperature exceeding a component surface temperature threshold value may indicate contaminants in the fluid that are inhibiting the ability for the component to effectively transfer heat to the fluid. A temperature monitoring system may monitor the temperatures and communicate with a service system to apply corrective measures before the residue can cause significant damage to an information handling system.

  • Patent number: 11458104
    Abstract: A solid pharmaceutical composition is provided that includes a core, an inner coating, and an outer coating. The core includes tiopronin as an active agent. Further, the inner coating, which includes a cellulose-based polymer, surrounds the core, and the outer coating, which includes an enteric polymer, surrounds the inner coating. As a result of the specific components of the solid pharmaceutical composition, the solid pharmaceutical composition exhibits a fed state Cmax of tiopronin that is at least 70% of a 12-hour fasted state Cmax of tiopronin after oral administration of the solid pharmaceutical composition when administered as a 300 milligram dose. As such, it is possible for the solid pharmaceutical composition to be administered orally with or without food (e.g., in a fed or fasted state) while still achieving a desired maximum plasma concentration of the tiopronin in a delayed release formulation.

  • Patent number: 11435410
    Abstract: A system for detecting contamination in a two-phase immersion cooling system based on current leakage between two combs on a printed circuit board. A first comb is opposite a second comb, wherein each finger of the first comb is positioned between two adjacent fingers on the second comb. The combs are positioned near a heat source in the liquid portion of the fluid. As the fluid boils, contaminants are distilled out of the fluid. Acidic contaminants deposited on either comb may cause metal migration to occur, resulting in bridging between two combs. A current sensor may detect the current leakage and send a signal to allow the information handling system, the fluid, or the cooling system to be serviced before damage occurs to the information handling system.

  • Patent number: 11429165
    Abstract: A system for detecting residue in a two-phase immersion cooling system based on contact resistance. A structure is formed to represent a type of connection between a component and a connector. The structure is positioned near a heat source in the two phase fluid in its liquid state. As the fluid boils, residues are deposited on the structure. An increase in the current resistance across the structure may indicate the presence of a residue or corrosion caused by the residue. Structures may be formed using materials that are similar to existing connections in the information handling system. A heating element may generate more heat than existing components such that the system detects the presence of contaminants with sufficient time to allow less expensive and less intensive corrective measures.
