Custom Cold Plates for Mission Critical Power Electronics Cooling
The drive towards higher power and more compact packages is making liquid cooling a necessity in many applications. Partnering with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Lytron supplies custom cold plates for electronics cooling and other applications where high performance and high reliability are essential. Our cold plates, which include vacuum-brazed and Friction Stir Welded (FSW) performance-fin cold plates and chassis, flat tube cold plates, and tubed cold plates, can be found in medical equipment, wind turbines, trains, semiconductor equipment, aircraft, lasers, data centers, and other mission critical equipment around the world.
During the cold plate prototype development process, we use our vast experience in thermal performance, material compatibility, and fluid dynamics to optimize your design. To perform advanced thermal analysis, our engineers use state-of-the-art simulation software developed by Lytron that includes more than 50 years of empirical data. Lytron utilizes the performance data collected from every prototype to continuously improve the accuracy of its thermal and fluid dynamics models. We also use other industry leading tools as needed, such as CFD and structural analysis software.
In addition to providing expert thermal and mechanical design engineering, Lytron ensures that your cold plate is Designed-for-Manufacturability (DFM). All proposed cold plate designs are reviewed with our production engineering team to ensure that your cold plate can be built to your exact specifications as well as meet your delivery schedule. With fin manufacturing, machining, tube bending, vacuum brazing, and heat treating processes all performed in-house, Lytron has total control over your finished product. As a result, we’re able to offer higher quality, greater flexibility, and shorter lead times.
To validate and verify your cold plate’s design, Lytron can also leverage its extensive, in-house engineering laboratory. We offer thermal testing, maturity testing, flight certification testing, and system qualification testing to our OEM customers.
