A developer of customized performance-critical components and equipment for advanced electronics and wireless products has expanded its Thermal Management Solutions portfolio by adding a Liquid Cooling Systems (LCS) product line. Laird Technologies’ liquid cooling solutions are reliable, self-contained units that remove large amounts of heat from densely packed electronic environments by recirculating a coolant to a predefined temperature set point. Removing heat maximizes operational life, reduces component maintenance, and minimizes down time, resulting in temperature stabilization of the equipment. Temperature stabilization has become critical because next generation electronics require precise temperature control. Being unconstrained, the units trim time users would be spend specifying pumps, heat exchangers, and liquid circuits, freeing their resources to focus on end instrument design.
The company’s standard product offering includes liquid heat exchanger systems that cool to ambient and recirculating chillers that cool to well below ambient. The cooling systems circulate either water, water-glycol (anti-freeze), or transformer oil. Standard heat-transfer mechanisms are either liquid-to-air or liquid-to-liquid configurations, and provide several thermal performance advantages over conventional air cooled systems.
“Liquid cooling is ideal for the most demanding thermal management tasks found on the market. Heat transfer conducted by water is superior over conventional air cooling mechanisms due to its high thermal conductivity,” said Andrew Dereka, Laird Technologies Product Manager. “As a result, in similar sized form factors, these thermal management systems achieve much higher cooling capacities and have higher heat flux densities than conventional heat-sink-fan mechanisms. They also have a unique ability to concentrate cooling at the active source and route heat away without introducing additional heat to the electronics, thus making the overall system more efficient.” The developer’s line of liquid cooling products are designed and manufactured to strict process-control standards and pass-fail criteria that yield best cooling performance and reliability.
The developer also has full turn-key capabilities to create customized solutions and offers strong engineering services to support onsite concept generation, thermal modeling, flow analysis, mechanical design, electrical design, and rapid prototyping.
As an industry leader in high-performance and cost-effective Thermal Management Solutions, Laird Technologies provides the knowledge, innovation, and resources to ensure exceptional thermal performance and customer satisfaction for applications in industrial, semiconductor, and medical markets.
