When it comes to streamlining your enclosure cooling, there are a variety of methods that can be used to get the job done. Indeed, from transfer through air-to-water methods to dissipation through thermal sinks, each method used offers a unique experience that serves to address your specific parameters in innovative and eco-friendly ways. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX would like to take a look at the way our custom heat pipes can help this process through optimizing your enclosure’s cooling capabilities.
Familiarity with Pipe Function
For a number of traditional thermal transfer methods, the utilization of a solid metal rod has played a significant role in application cooling. While it certainly accomplished the task of preventing overheating, it definitely was not the most effective way to do so. Now that the focus has been shifted from preventing overheating to methods that also favor increased yields and production, there also exists a new need for a product to do so, and thus heat pipes were born.
A heat pipe enclosure consists of a hollow metal tube that contains an extremely high and effective thermal conductivity. This allows for rapid thermal transfer so that applications and other sensitive electronics can continue to function optimally without the threat of overheating.

Thermal Transfer Over Distances
A factor that plays a major role in the heat pipe’s ability to encourage optimal enclosure cooling involves the technology used to do so. These products utilize two-phase or phase-change heat transfer, in which a fluid is used to absorb the waste energy at the source. The fluid will then increase in temperature until it reaches its latent point of vaporization, where it turns into vapor. This liquid-to-vapor then is carried over a specified distance where it begins to cool. Once it falls below its point of vaporization, it returns back to its liquid state and then carried back to the source to repeat the process.
Indeed, the air-to-water heat exchanger utilizes only distance and natural processes to encourage more than adequate function. What’s more, each installation can be custom-created to address your specific parameters, including a variety of bends, angles, lengths, and more.
Ensuring Proper Cooling
Heat pipe enclosure cooling may not be the ideal method of temperature management for every application, however, it is one of the more common of our two-phase systems. Our team is ready to work with you to find your ideal solution, and we encourage you to have a hand in your product during every step of the way.
