ADVANCED THERMAL SOLUTIONS Line of flat and round copper heat pipes for electronics thermal management includes more than 350 standard units that provide stand-alone cooling and can be combined with heat spreading devices to deliver high levels of passive or active cooling. Prodcuts transfer component heat with minimal temperature difference to dispense heat efficiently across heat spreaders. Liquid in the heat pipe turns to vapor by absorbing heat and removing thermal energy from hot component surfaces. The vapor travels to the cold end of the pipe, releases latent heat and condenses back to liquid. The liquid returns to the hot interface along an internal copper wick to provide continuous thermal management.
