Cooling Applications With Passive/Active Technology

Personal computer new part heating radiator cooler thermostat made from aluminum metal.Today’s market sees an increase in demand for highly-optimized machinery and equipment to ensure efficient yield and provision of service in a wide range of industries. Indeed, new-age technology makes so many processes easier and more convenient. To continue to perform at such a rate, however, significant thought must go into the maintenance and accessories included within applications to ensure optimal usage. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX will take a look at the utilization of passive and active convection to cool your sensitive applications.

Understanding Convective Heat Transfer

When it comes to ensuring your applications do not overheat, having a custom solution to address heat transfer is a must. Indeed, a number of traditional solutions utilize chemical or harmful substances to eliminate the heat waste, however, this is not the case for our products. In fact, our team strives to create only the most optimal solutions through eco-friendly means, meaning we rely greatly on processes that do not impact the physical environment or your working one.

With this in mind, one of the technologies we utilize to effectively transfer thermal energy consists of convection. Convective heat transfer involves moving heat from one place to another with the use of fluids. We utilize both active and passive forms of convection in our products and can specifically tailor your solution to best address your needs.

Passive Technology and Your Applications

Passive technology – also known as natural convection – involves buoyancy forces that cause a fluid to move, resulting from the variation of density that temperature change causes. As these densities change, the heat is transferred from the warmer fluid to that of the cooler fluid, resulting in a passive cooling effect. In other words, fluid mass changes as it comes into contact with a heated surface, causing density to change as well. The cooler fluid then sinks to the bottom as the liquid that has increased in temperature rises, creating the intended effect.

Artificial Convection Currents with Active Tech

Another form of convection – active or forced – consists of an outside force pushing the fluid over the surface in order to create an artificially-induced current. These outside forces typically involve the use of accessories such as a pump or a fan, which our team can custom create and design to meet your needs. These options coupled with our collaborative engineering and manufacturing model helps to ensure more optimal usage and greater quality products.
