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 (http://www.parallax-tech.com/
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 :-)
