Application Cooling With Heat Pipes

Large industrial water treatment and boiler room. Piping, flanges, butterlfy valves, rusty and corroded boltsSometimes finding the optimal solution for an overheating application involves taking a step back and addressing the issue from a different angle. What’s more, we tend to learn that simpler solutions are the ideal way to go. When factoring in your needs, parameters, and environment, a one-size-fits-all approach is never going to get you the most out of your equipment. Still, having a grasp of basic concepts can take you a long way. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX addresses this very concept by looking at heat pipe assemblies and discussing the benefits of simple design.

Rapid Thermal Management

By now you are plenty familiar with the concept of overheating. It can occur in individuals, animals, and even technological devices. Indeed, it is one of the bigger threats to target an industrialized society, as many businesses and companies rely heavily on their equipment to satisfy their production needs and optimize their yield. When a machine produces excess waste heat and cannot properly dispose of it, the result is the subsequent rise in internal temperature until levels are so high that the device itself shuts down.

Shutting down is not the only complication that arises from this phenomenon, however, as intense temperatures can cause parts of an application to become temporarily or permanently damaged. What’s more, you experience an increase in the possibility of electrical fires that place your business and team in danger. Because of this, each application must have some form of thermal management that can remove this waste at a rapid rate.

Using Phase-Change Technology

Unlike traditional solid cores, our custom heat pipe installations are hollow and utilize phase-change technology to effectively transport thermal waste over specified distances. Phase-change technology implements the use of a cooling fluid that is intended to absorb the thermal energy until it reaches its latent point of vaporization. Once here, the liquid transforms states of matter and becomes vapor. The vapor is then carried across the heat pipe heat exchanger where it is cooled along the way. Once it returns back to its liquid state, it is taken back to the base to repeat the process. For more information about this process, reach out to our team today.

Achieving Optimal Dimensions

One of the major benefits that arise with our heat pipe heat exchangers is the ability to accommodate a wide range of parameters. In fact, we can achieve a number of bends, angles, diameters, and more to help you get the most out of your technological application while accommodating smaller areas and environments.
