Highly efficient. Environmentally friendly. Reliable cooling.

Our mission is to provide customers with reliable, efficient and safe cooling solutions for high-powered electronics.

Our Story

Dave Santoleri and Steven Schon founded QuantaCool to provide environmentally low-impact cooling solutions for high-intensity electronics applications. QuantaCool’s PolarBox™, PolarRak™ and PolarMax™ systems use patented microchannel heat pipe (MHPTM) technology to transfer large quantities of heat from its source without using pumps to an environmentally safe coolant that does not contain water. These systems improve the operation of electronic equipment, reduce energy consumption, decrease costs and lessen environmental impact.

QuantaCool is a member of the Center for Energy-Smart Electronic Systems (ES2), a research consortium sponsored by the National Science Foundation and jointly run by the State University of New York at Binghamton, Villanova University and the University of Texas at Arlington. ES2 partners with government, industry and academia to develop methods to efficiently operate electronic systems.
