Thermal Engineer Day started as a way to recognize thermal engineers everywhere for their hard work, innovation and dedication to the science of applying thermodynamics to cooling and heating the important tools we use every day.
All of us at ATS were AMAZED at how many companies participated this year and recognized thermal engineers. And we thought, how can we make Thermal Engineer Day more fun and perhaps more meaningful for the Thermal Management Community in 2024.
So stay tuned! We’ll be announcing in September what we think will be a fun opportunity to further celebrate Thermal Engineer Day on July 24, 2024!
ATS does quite a bit of R&D to try and extend the limits of air and liquid cooling. One of our latest achievements is our U.S.A. made aluminum vapor chambers.
ATS aluminum vapor chambers are flat and lightweight, without moving parts. These are the only cooling vapor chambers manufactured in the U.S. Lengths range from 25x25mm to 250x250mm (1x1in to 9.8×9.8in). And we also will do custom materials (such a Titanium or Copper) and sizes!
Many companies we work with prefer to design their own cold plates and have another company do the DFMA review and the manufacturing. ATS’ extensive capability for manufacturing cold plates is demonstrated in the wide variety of tubed cold plates it produces to meet each customer’s specific requirements. Copper, stainless steel, aluminum, 4 or 48 passes, ATS has the manufacturing capability to make nearly any tubed cold plate. Different examples of these custom cold plates, made in the USA, are described on the ATS website at the link: https://www.qats.com/Products/Liquid-Cooling/Custom-Cold-Plates
CPC has a very helpful white paper and funny but very useful video on the topic of understanding coolants and components’ materials of construction and their interaction. This is one of those niche topic areas that some may not consider, but, is key to avoiding performance and reliability issues in liquid cooling systems. These are no cost, no email registration required.
Chillers in liquid cooling loops condition the coolant before it returns to the cold plate and the heat source. The ATS-CHILL V series are re-circulating, vapor compression chillers that offer precise coolant temperature control using a PID controller. ATS iM series chillers are immersed for precise control of the fluid bath temperature. TEChill is a chiller and heater system based on thermoelectric technology.
