Choose among these four standard extruded liquid channel aluminum heat sink bases, in order to create your own custom configuration. Liquid cooled cold-plate can be up to 60 inches long.

This is a highly advanced, dependable liquid cooling technology utilizing internal liquid channels extruded into the cold-plate. No longer is expensive drilling and fabricated processes required. This extrusion technology overcomes past size limitations and comes in four standard sizes; lengths up to 60 inches!

These can be configured in a number of parallel and series flow options provide an optimal thermal solution. The liquid channels locations were determined in order to accommodate almost all power semiconductors.  In addition, we can enhance thermal performance by using specifically designed turbulators which increase the flow rate in the fluid channel with only a minute increase in back pressure. Custom designed can a provided for specific thermal challenges.

We also provide other advanced thermal dissipation solutions:

  • VBA – Vacuum brazed cold-plate assemblies
  • Friction Stir Welding for air-cooled and liquid cooled cold plates
  • Copper cold plates
  • Heat pipes for High power industrial use: 30kW + heat pipe assemblies
  • Heat exchangers
