On line Tool Simplifies Selection of Liquid-to-Liquid Cooling Systems
Aug 2, 2005, Woburn, MA: Lytron has added an interactive liquid-to-liquid cooling system selector tool to its website, www.Lytron.com. The program will select an appropriate Lytron liquid-to-liquid cooling system based on user inputs of heat load, desired set-point temperature and flow rate, and incoming facility water temperature and flow rate.
A variety of pump and controller options can be selected, and additional options such as water filters, heaters and de-ionization packages added. The program then displays performance curves and pump curves in either English or Metric Product Selectors units. It calculates the price for the system that you have selected, adding any requested options, and allows you to print a quotation. This form can simply be filled out and faxed back with a credit card number for instant ordering. If a standard product does not meet your requirements, an online "Ask an Engineer" form can be completed. Lytron's engineers will review the form to determine if a custom liquid-to-liquid cooling system is feasible.
A liquid-to-liquid cooling system transfers waste heat to facility water via a liquid-to-liquid heat exchanger. The facility water removes heat, rather than rejecting it to the ambient air, so it avoids increases in room temperature that typically occur with high heat loads. With over three times the capacity of a comparably sized recirculating chiller, the LCS is an excellent solution for high heat-load applications such as semiconductor capital equipment, medical systems, high power lasers, and industrial equipment.
Lytron's website offers extensive technical information for design and thermal engineers. In addition to the new liquid-to-liquid cooling system selector, it contains product selectors for recirculating chillers, modular cooling systems, cold plates and heat exchangers. It also features over 30 application notes covering different aspects of thermal management, as well as information about Lytron's products and capabilities.
Lytron designs and manufactures high performance heat transfer systems and components. Its cooling products include recirculating chillers, compact and portable non-refrigerated cooling systems, cold plates, aluminum oil coolers, copper tube fin heat exchangers, stainless steel tube-fin heat exchangers, and compact brazed-plate heat exchangers.
