By improving the heat reduction the device will have improved life cycle, hence improved product reliability. To ensure good thermal conductivity, thermal interface materials (TIM’s) are needed between the device and the heat sink or enclosure. JHC has thermal solutions that meet these needs for today's requirements.
A heat pipe consists of a vacuum tight tube, a wick structure and a working fluid. Heat enters at the evaporator end which causes the fluid to vaporise. It then travels to the condenser end where it cools via natural convection or a fan forced array (i.e. transferring the heat).
The fluid then condenses and is forced back to the evaporator by capillary action. This transfer of heat occurs at very high speeds making heat pipes very efficient.
They can be bent to suit the installation and come in a range of diameters.
