Abstract

See full text

In association with a liquid flow through a heat exchanger situated to remove heat from electronic devices, a coolant flow control apparatus is provided. The coolant flow control apparatus comprises a first input channel for carrying liquid coolant to a first input of the heat exchanger; a flow control device positioned along a flow path that includes the first input channel, the flow control device, in response to a temperature of coolant proximate to the flow control device, is operable to enable or to prevent coolant flow along the first input channel into the heat exchanger; a second input channel for continuously carrying liquid coolant to a second input of the heat exchanger, during both times when the flow control device is enabling and is preventing the coolant flow along the first input channel into the heat exchanger; and an output channel for carrying coolant away from the heat exchanger.
