Liquid Cold Plates Various Options For Channels and Turbulators

Liquid Cold Plates With Various Channels and Turbulators

Baknor offers a diverse range of flow channel designs to best fit your particular application. By leveraging our in-depth knowledge of thermal design and broad manufacturing capabilities, we design cold plates that are both thermally efficient and cost effective.

We’ll study your specific application and work with you to create a channel design that considers factors such as heat concentration and layout, mounting holes, temperature uniformity, coolant type, flow rate and pressure drop.

From there we’ll determine what cooling techniques are required, such as turbulators, high density fins, round pin fins vs square fins, and etc. We’ll also establish which tried-and-true system configuration is the best fit, such as parallel vs series flow, serpentine or manifold type flow path, among many others. This will determine the flow path that maximizes cooling power while remaining cost competitive at any level of production.

All our designs are refined through several iterations of simulations using industry leading computational fluid dynamics software. This ensues our designs can reliably meet thermal requirements, while giving us the foresight to mitigate potential prototype issues such as high pressure drops, hot spots generated by recirculation, or cold spots that may cause condensation, and other issues.

And With Various Turbulators

Adding additional surface area within the fluid path of a liquid cold plate design, will help increase the heat transfer into the liquid. Heat dissipation is directly related to the amount of surface are available for heat transfers.

Forged pins, folded fins, skived inserts and wire turbulators are some examples of adding surface area within the fluid path. The additional turbulence that these pins create, will also increase the amount of heat that is transferred to the liquid. This becomes more important when flow rates are low or the viscosity of the fluid is high.

Below are just some of the examples for your reference.

Baknor’s engineers have helped significantly increase the performance of a liquid cold plate design, especially when space is limited.
