When undergoing phase change (from liquid to vapour or vice versa), fluids have the ability to exchange significant amounts of energy. This is mostly due to the fluid's latent heat and the flow’s high heat transfer coefficient, here illustrated for various types of flow. This makes two-phase cooling the best alternative for cooling of high heat flux applications.
Two-phase heat transfer coefficients increase with local heat flux, again providing a passive optimal hotspot cooling solution.
Refrigerants typically used in such cooling systems have great dielectric properties, increasing operational safety, and their Global Warming Potential has systematically decreased in the last few decades.
Our mission is to work with clients and partners in the development and integration of disruptive, green and financially competitive cooling systems into the market.
Our solution? Passive two-phase cooling!
Passive two-phase cooling refers to the cooling of components using a working fluid that undergoes phase change and has self-sustained motion driven by the application/extraction of heat. We specialize in innovative technologies, including Pulsating Heat Pipes (PHP) and Loop Thermosyphon Systems (LTS).
From a few watts to megawatts, it can scale efficiently while maintaining low temperature levels (<90°C for most applications). Two-phase cooling is especially relevant for high heat-flux applications (>10W/cm2), where standard heat spreaders or air-cooled solutions reach their limits. Examples include CPUs in 1U and 2U servers, telecom, aerospace, automotive and power electronics.
