A Closer Look at Phase-Change Cooling

Over the last several decades, thermal management has made leaps and bounds to keep up with the ever-evolving, higher-capacity advancement of electrical technology. In many instances, phase-change cooling has been one of the most significant breakthroughs. Heat exchangers that utilize phase-change technology rely on fluids with high thermal conductivity. When the fluid is near electrical components, it absorbs the waste heat and changes from liquid to gas. The fluid is moved to another part of the heat exchanger where it gives up the energy it absorbed and condenses back into a liquid, repeating the process continuously.

What This Means for Heat Exchangers

Cooling units that utilize phase-change technology are able to provide consistently effective results while keeping energy and operating costs at a minimum. By taking advantage of the latent heat of vaporization that occurs when the fluid changes state, they can keep electrical enclosures cool and prevent heat spots from forming without the need for air conditioning equipment.

In addition to being more energy efficient than more conventional cooling solutions, phase-change cooling units are also better able to fit the needs of a variety of applications. At Noren Thermal, we can custom-design solutions to fit our clients’ unique needs, both in performance as well as physical attributes. This customization is increasingly more important as technology continues to become smaller and more powerful.
