Liquid cooling in cold plates is a natural evolution beyond air cooling. The need for improved thermal performance and environmental requirements is an important driving factor.
CSI’s liquid cold plates offer a high transfer coefficient, although this depends on the specific coolant used and mode of convective heat transfer. There are many ways to accomplish liquid cooling.
Cooling Source offers standard liquid-cooled heatsinks / cold plates. We use various manufacturing processes such as high precision CNC to machine a groove in the base. We bend a tube per the design flow path. Design engineers often place the tube toward the top surface. Therefore, it provides better cooling to the devices. In addition, this construction method can be cost-effective.
The heatsink / liquid cold plate can be manufactured with copper or aluminum alloy.
We bend in-house copper, aluminum, and stainless-steel tubes.
Some of the main benefits achieved are:
The reduction of noise, and is also more efficient. Some of the drawbacks include the risk entailed with the proximity of liquid to electronics and its cost. Liquid cold plates are more expensive than fan sinks, which require fewer components such as reservoir, pump, water blocks, hose, and heatsinks.
Briefly, as part of the liquid cold plate design work, our engineers apply advanced 3D modeling. Also, we are using cutting-edge CFD tools to optimize your liquid cold plate heat transfer project. In addition, we provide our customers a complete cooling solution to meet specific requirements in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Also, you can count on our Mechanical Engineers to assist with design change and reduce manufacturing costs.
