Performance-Fin Cold Plates for Superior Heat Transfer
Lytron’s performance-fin cold plates and chassis offer superior heat transfer. Internal fin increases surface area for heat transfer as well as creates turbulence, minimizing the fluid boundary layer and further reducing thermal resistance. Cold plates and chassis may be vacuum-brazed or Friction Stir Welded (FSW). Cold plates and chassis that are vacuum-brazed are assembled and brazed in an environmentally controlled room to ensure the highest quality, most reliable brazes. We use numerically controlled vacuum brazing ovens and proprietary fixture designs to maintain tight tolerances and ensure complete metallurgical bonding between the fins and the cold plate or sidewalls of the chassis. This guarantees ruggedness and leak free operation. Lytron’s vacuum brazing ovens allow for brazing of parts up to 10 feet (3.05 m) long and 3 feet 2 inches (0.97 m) wide.
Performance-fin aluminum and copper cold plates offer nearly unlimited customization opportunities. They can be precisely engineered to match your performance, pressure drop, and dimensional requirements. Since Lytron manufactures its own fin, we can customize the internal fin as well as the cold plate’s fluid path, allowing us to engineer a truly optimized cold plate. In addition, Lytron provides surface machining and drilling that meets tight tolerances.
