High density power loads, enclosed or limited space, weight restrictions or limited airflow?

Over the past decade Aavid Thermalloy has pioneered heat pipe technology and its application, developing a high quality manufacturing process to ensure long life and reliability in its heat pipes.

They can quickly move heat away from temperature sensitive devices to a place the heat can be dissipated. Heat pipes can also be used to increase fin efficiency by moving heat directly to the cooler top portion of fins. Many types of applications can benefit from heat pipes, from UPS to telecommunications to motor drives and controls to transportation to servers and computers.

As well as extending the thermal range of both natural and forced convection cooling, heat pipes reduce overall cost and weight without increasing the volume in a base plate and have no moving parts. Small diameter heat pipe assemblies provide greater thermal efficiency whilst large diameter heat pipe assemblies transfer greater power loads. Aavid has also developed the Hi-ContactTM heat pipe embedding process which improves thermal transfer.
