A Closer Look at Heat Pipes

When it comes to effectively cooling control panels and other electrical enclosures, Noren Thermal offers several solutions according to each application’s unique specifications. For many applications, heat pipes have quickly become the go-to option for thermal management in a variety of industries. With their combination of energy-efficiency and minimal maintenance needs, heat pipes are among the most versatile heat spreaders, and can be designed to meet the space and thermal management needs of virtually any system.

Spreading the Heat

Heat pipes optimize the transfer of electrical waste heat so that circuits can remain cool without the need for air conditioning or air compressing equipment. The fluid inside of a heat pipe, usually water, has a high specific heat, and can absorb ample amounts of electrical waste heat without any significant rise in temperature. As the fluid absorbs the heat near an electrical system, it evaporates and flows to another area, such as a heat sink, where it releases the heat and condenses back into liquid.

Benefits of Heat Pipes

The science behind heat pipes, known as latent heat of evaporation, allows heat spreaders to cool electrical enclosures without having to drastically chill the air inside of them. Heat pipes keep the temperature inside of electrical enclosures just above the ambient temperature outside of the enclosure, preventing heat pockets from forming near sensitive electrical equipment. Eliminating the need for high-maintenance equipment results in significant benefits, including reduced energy consumption and a notably smaller environmental footprint.
