The main issue with Flourinert is price -- I wanted some to cool a  
20W IR laser -- I didn't spend that much time looking before I just  
decided to switch to distilled water, but I was finding prices like > 
$300 for a 1 liter bottle ( 
fluorine.htm). I did find some cheaper "recycled" Fluorinert, but it  
wasn't *that* much cheaper.

I don't remember who made them, but the same laser had these really  
neat plumbing connections -- very similar to the air hose connectors  
on air compressors  -- there is a nipple that snaps into a female  
connector. The nipple pushes in a pin when it snaps in and allows the  
liquid to start flowing. When you disconnect the connector the liquid  
flow shuts off and you get maybe half a teaspoon of leakage.


P.S: Sorry if I tripped anyones HR policies for NSFW content :-)
