Phase-Change Cooling In Heat Pipes

industrial pipes and valvesIn our most recent blog, we took a look at the way heat sink heat exchangers utilized thermal dissipation in order to remove waste heat from within an electrical enclosure or industrial application. Indeed, the process of removing waste heat is essential for optimal application function, but it is important to recognize that not all applications can benefit from the same methods or even heat exchangers themselves. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX takes a closer look at heat pipe assemblies and discusses how phase-change cooling helps promote sustainable thermal management.

Achieving Thermal Transfer Over Distances

By now, you are likely familiar with the concept of thermal management. To recap, this process involves overseeing waste heat production within an application and providing a means for the waste energy to be removed from the enclosure. Devices that do not consider thermal management are at an even greater risk of shutdown, permanent damage, and even electrical fires, so it is best to ensure you have a method in place.

The problem arises, however, when manufacturers attempt to sell you on one-size-fits-all approaches. These methods may seem ideal in terms of saving you money, but ultimately, they cannot provide the optimization you seek if your unique needs and parameters are not taken into account. This is where our team steps in to help.

One of our popular thermal solutions that are particularly helpful for companies looking to achieve thermal transfer over distances includes our heat pipe assemblies. These devices can achieve a host of bends, angles, and diameters to address your thermal needs regardless of the space allotted and distance needed to be covered.

Understanding Phase-Change Tech

To achieve quality thermal regulation over a specified distance, our heat pipe assemblies utilize a transfer method known as phase-change technology. This process functions by exposing a working fluid to the heat source and allowing the fluid to absorb the waste heat until it reaches its point of latent vaporization.

Once the fluid has reached its vaporization point, the liquid-turned-gas is then carried over the distance of the heat pipe and subsequently cooled. Once it falls below the point of vaporization, it is then returned back to the heat source to repeat the process. Contact our team to learn more.

Meeting Your Needs and Parameters

As we briefly mentioned, one of the key elements of a heat pipe assembly is its ability to achieve a host of different bends, angles, diameters, and other measurements. This allows our team to customize your heat exchanger so that it meets your needs and parameters precisely, thus helping you get the most from your technological devices.
