The unprecedented power of today’s medical devices is a testament to the advancement in computing technology we’ve enjoyed over the last several decades. However, it has also been a particularly pressing challenge for thermal engineers tasked with developing thermal management systems that can keep up. On one hand, medical devices evolve by becoming smaller and more powerful, meaning thermal management solutions must work harder in significantly tighter spaces. In addition, technology designed for use in a medical or hospital setting comes with a unique set of challenges, including the safety of the materials and cooling fluid used.
Thermal Management Made Specifically for Medical Devices
For over 40 years, Noren Thermal has excelled at creating innovative thermal management products for clients in a wide range of industries. In the medical field, healthcare professionals rely on technology that can function reliably and consistently. Their work depends on devices like digital imaging equipment and diagnostic technology, and if such devices need constant service or repairs, then they’ll negatively impact the organization’s workflow. Heat exchangers answer this need by providing consistent thermal management through natural methods, like convection, conduction, and phase-change cooling, which requires simplified equipment with few or no moving parts.
Maintaining Safety and Productivity
By utilizing natural heat transfer methods instead of more complicated air conditioning or air compressing equipment, heat exchangers significantly improve the productivity of most types of technology. These methods also use safer components, including cooling fluid (usually water), compared to other alternatives, such as Freon. This makes heat exchangers safer for devices that are used for diagnostic and treatment purposes, where patients and providers are constantly in close proximity.
