Cold plate for heat dissipation
Cold plates drain heat away from the equipment
The fluid that circulates in the cold plates allows the heat to be drained away from the equipment. The materials and fluids used are adapted on a case-by-case basis depending on the power output.
The cold plates are made to measure. The components can be assembled on them or the plates can be assembled on the chassis to cool it.
We can provide thermal studies to validate a design. We can also offer cost-effective alternatives to existing plates using other machining methods.
Cold plates, Key points :
- Thermal study on request
- Design to plan
- Proposal of economical alternatives to existing plates
- Prototype to series production
We can advise you on the best practices for producing cold plates. In addition to feasibility studies, we can also provide thermal studies on request.
A cold plate (also known as a cooling plate) is a metal plate in which a refrigerant (usually water) circulates. The fluid used will drain the heat from the components mounted on the cold plate to the outside of the system.
Heat transfer is forced by the fluid circulating in the metal plate (usually aluminium or copper), at medium or low pressure (atmospheric).
Cold plates are used for high power management and heat transfer. Particularly in high-performance computer applications or power applications. Cold plates are used when air transfer is no longer sufficient.
All our plates are made to measure according to your drawings and requirements.
You can find out everything there is to know about cold plates by reading our article on our website (in Resources): About cold plates.
You’ll learn how cold plates are integrated, how they’re designed, what their limitations are, and much more.
