Product News: Thermal & Heating Equipment
Liquid to Air Heat Exchangers offer capacities from 500-5,000 W.
Press Release Summary:
October 18, 2012 - Featuring self-contained design, WL Series removes heat from densely packed electronic environments that are not conducive to conventional heat sink fans. Units circulate water or water with glycol and run on AC voltage. Suited for medical and industrial markets, heat exchangers can maintain peak performance of high powered X-ray scanning systems by keeping X-ray generator and tube cool, and can extend life of machine tools used in CNC machining for fabricating metals.

Laird Technologies Releases New WL Series Liquid Cooling Product Line
Press release date: October 15, 2012
High-Performance and Long Life Operation Designed for Medical and Industrial Markets
St. Louis, Missouri, USA – Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of customized performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless products, today announced the release of its WL Series Liquid to Air Heat Exchanger Systems product line.
The WL Series products are self-contained units designed to remove a large amount of heat from densely packed electronic environments that are not conducive to conventional heat sink fans. The WL series provides customers the benefit of investing in a full assembly, rather than having separate components and making them work together. Ideal for the medical and industrial markets, these products are able to maintain peak performance of high powered x-ray scanning systems by keeping the x-ray generator and tube cool. The WL Series also extends the life and improves the performance of machine tools used in CNC machining for fabricating metals.
“The WL Series products are ideal for the most demanding thermal management applications on the market. Heat transfer conducted by water is superior over conventional air cooled mechanisms due to its high thermal conductivity,” said Andrew Dereka, Laird Technologies Thermoelectric Product Manager. “As a result, the WL Series achieves much higher cooling capacities and heat flux densities than conventional heat sink fan mechanisms. This product family also has a unique ability to concentrate cooling at the active source and route heat away without introducing additional heat to electronics located in close proximity to the heat source. This can be critical when heat loads are in the kilowatt range.”
The robust WL Series products use world class components sourced from brand name suppliers and are assembled through proprietary processes. They are designed to circulate water or water with glycol (anti-freeze) and run on AC voltage. Standard cooling capacities range from 500 to 5,000 Watts. These units are manufactured to strict process control standards and pass/fail criteria that yield optimal cooling performance and reliability.
Laird Technologies also has full turn-key capabilities to design custom liquid to air heat exchanger systems and offers strong engineering services to support onsite concept generation, thermal modeling, flow analysis, mechanical design, electrical design and rapid prototyping. As an industry leader in high-performance and cost-effective Thermal Management Solutions, including Thermal Interface Materials, Thermoelectric Assemblies and Thermoelectric Modules, Laird Technologies provides the knowledge, innovation, and resources to ensure exceptional thermal performance and customer satisfaction for applications in the medical and industrial markets.
