Heat pipe solutions

Heat pipe coolers use heat pipes’ effect in order to carry on calories from one area to another with an extremely high thermal conductivity.

They are generally made up of 3 elements :

  • Evaporating plate : metal plate in contact with the electronic component to cool. The plate’s configuration adapts itself to the geometry of the component (dimensions, drilling, surface’s treatment).
  • Heat pipes : assembled with the evaporating plate, they carry on calories from the evaporating area onto the condensing area. Their diameter and their position vary depending on the power to extract.
  • Condenser area : it can be made up with metal fins that allow the dissipation of calories into a fluid (generally air) or a plate in contact with a colder surface.

At similar dimensions, thermal conductivity of heat pipes is 1000 better than copper and 1700 better than aluminum ! This exceptional property allows heat pipe cooler excellent cooling properties.
