Recognizing Thermal Solution Components

Macro shot of a modern desktop motherboard with a heatsink mounted on the CPU on the socket LGA.In our previous blog, we discussed the importance behind effective thermal management, and how the technology behind our products plays a major role. While the methods used certainly contribute to the efficiency of temperature regulation, the components themselves play a major role as well. In fact, it is the relationship between the two that make our solutions so successful. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX would like to take an in-depth look at the components behind a number of our products and how their versatility offers the most in application cooling.

Spreading Heat

When it comes to effective thermal management, an understanding of the strategies used is necessary. Indeed, the goal will always be to prevent overheating in an efficient manner, and to accomplish this, we must achieve an effective way to either spread, move, or dissipate the waste. When we are specifically looking at spread, a custom thermal exchanger known as a heat spreader comes to mind.

Heat spreaders are devices with an extremely high conductivity that allow heat to move between a source and a secondary exchanger. The secondary exchanger is larger in area, dimension, and volume so as to effectively spread out the waste. For more information about this process, please reach out to a member of our team today.

High Thermal Conductivity

Another major aspect of an effective solution component involves the rate at which energy can be transferred. Indeed, a high level of thermal conductivity allows our products to achieve effect transfer at a rapid rate. Conductance consists of the quantity of heat that passes through a plate of a specified area and thickness, which means that the material used to craft a custom component is just as important as the technology used to drive it. An example of this is the use of copper in our custom heat sink products. The copper material contains a high level of conductivity, and the prevalence of many fins allow the thermal energy to spread rapidly through the sink base, into the fins, and out into surrounding air. For more information about this process, reach out to our team.

Transportation Over Distances

A component that serves a bigger purpose than one might think includes the ability to transport waste heat over distances. Products such as heat pipes can achieve this feat through custom tubes that can achieve a variety of angles, bends, shapes, and sizes to maximize distance. This can also be accomplished through the use of increased surface area through the use of finned solutions so that applications with constricted space parameters can achieve the same quality level of transfer.
