From below ambient heat exchangers to forced-air cooling in hazardous locations and everything else in-between, there seems to be a thermal management solution for every field and every situation. Indeed, thermal management is a necessary component to consider when maintaining your technological equipment, as an application that is unable to perform in an optimal manner will inevitably lead to serious breakdowns and complications. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX takes a look at forced air cooling with respect to sensitive electronics, and how heat sink thermal management can optimize your operation.
Forced Air Cooling
Though there are a number of technologies that can be utilized to enable proper enclosure cooling, not every option works for every situation. In fact, devices in hazardous locations or ones that experience extremes in conditions may require a bit of assistance, and this is where forced air cooling comes into play.
More specifically, convective heat transfer refers to the transfer of thermal energy from a solid to a fluid, including liquid or gas. When it comes to convective heat transfer, there are two major forms: passive and active. Passive cooling refers to natural convection, in which fluid motion is caused by buoyancy forces resulting from density changes, whereas active cooling is forced convection, where a fluid is forced over the surface by an external source to create an artificially induced current.
Among the different devices that can produce forced air cooling, a heat sink heat exchanger is one of the more popular options. To learn more about this process and how a custom product can benefit you, give our team a call today.
Protecting Sensitive Electronics
When it comes to protecting sensitive electronics, heat sinks have you covered. These devices offer the most in terms of forced air cooling, all without causing you to break the bank. Indeed, heat sink enclosure cooling consists of a solid base with multiple copper fins jutting outward at a 90-degree angle to help promote effective dissipation.
What’s more? The use of copper helps provide a rate of dissipation two to three times faster than that of traditional aluminum sinks. For more information about this process or to get started on yours, call our team and speak to one of our representatives today.
Built to Your Needs
In addition to providing a much more rapid rate of thermal transfer, heat sinks can be customized to your specific needs. Indeed, we do not believe in the one-size-fits-all approach, and we recognize that each application and each environment it performs in is different.
