The improved convection requires an additional heat sink design, which eliminates air-turbulences for example. Liquid-cooled cooling solutions place high demands on the tightness of the entire system, amongst other things.
"When the construction space available and the power dissipation allow it, for reasons of long-term reliability and costs, the decision should be for a cooling solution using natural convection", explains Wilfried Schmitz, Managing Director of CTX, which is regarded as the leading retailer with an exceptionally broad and varied product range of heat sinks.
The product range covers small heat sinks for SMT applications through to the large liquid heat sink plate. This means that CTX has the suitable solutions to a wide variety of problems and provides its customers with comprehensive support when selecting the respective cooling solution.
