Flat heat pipes are part of Gelmecs selection of thermal control pads and tapes to enable fanless cooling. They are designed to reduce power consumption, noise output , product thickness and cost. An ultra slim aluminuim housing only 1.2 to 2.5mm thick offers light weight and great uniformity.
Heat can be directly removed from the source and be transferred to the chassis or to an external heatsink. Little heat is transferred to any components in the vicinity of the heat source. It also negates the need for ventilation holes and helps to reduce ingress of dust (no air filters required) and static.Typical applications include set top boxes, plasma and LCD televisions and so on.
