Just as human beings need to cool down after extensive time in the heat or after an intensive workout or run, technology needs a method of cooling itself as well, otherwise, it will overheat and, ultimately, lead to malfunction or break down. In the wake of a booming technological surge, a trend has presented itself indicating a move toward smaller mechanisms that produce a much larger amount of power, and while this is convenient for many industries, it neglects to account for the space needed to cool a system. At Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX, we strive to produce quality thermal solutions such as custom heat pipes in order to address this issue in an efficient manner.
How a Heat Pipe Functions
Heat pipes are a passive, two-phase heat transfer solution that can be utilized for a variety of applications. As one of the most common thermal solutions, heat pipes can be designed to accommodate a number of setups, with a myriad of bends, angles, and dimensions to choose from. They can also come in a variety of forms, including bent, flat, embedded, and finned, making them versatile to address nearly any application.
A heat pipe utilizes phase-change transfer, meaning it involves a liquid to vapor phase change – also known as boiling to evaporation and condensation – of a working fluid. These accessories have an extremely effective and high thermal conductivity, ranging from 5,000 W/m•K to 200,000 W/m•K. Compared to traditional solid conductors like aluminum, graphite, copper, and diamond which have thermal conductivities ranging from 250 W/m•K to 1,500 W/m•K, Noren’s solutions produce a higher level of conductivity and thus, provide a simple solution to dispersing heat.
An Eco-Friendly Solution
Heat pipes transfer heat from the evaporator to the condenser, or heat sink, over a relatively long distance through the latent heat of vaporization of a working fluid. In other words, the distance utilized allows the thermal energy to move away from the source and provide cooling along the way. Because of the phase-change system utilized, it allows for no chemical waste or harm, making it an eco-friendly solution that does not severely impact the team around it.
Not only do heat pipes provide an eco-friendly manner of displacing heat, but they can be customized to address your specific needs. Our unique design process allows us to create these systems with a variety of bends, angles, and flatness. Our designs also provide a long lifespan with zero maintenance, making it one of the most efficient solutions out there.
