Webinar: Heat Pipes & Vapor Chambers – How They Work and Their Deployment in Electronics Thermal Management, 10-22-20, 2PM EST

Heat pipes and vapor chambers are often lumped into liquid cooling, but, they are not actually cooling they are in fact moving heat from a hot location to another location where it is dissipated. And how they operate, how to choose them, and how to deploy them is a very important part of the thermal engineer’s toolbox. And we have a free webinar on this topic to help train you.

Our webinar “Heat Pipes & Vapor Chambers – How They Work and Their Deployment in Electronics Thermal Management” is being held at 2PM Eastern time on 10-22-20. In this webinar we’ll answer questions such as:

  • How do heat pipes and vapor chambers work?
  • Why heat pipes are not liquid cooling?
  • When is it best to use a heat pipe and when is it best to use a vapor chamber?

The webinar will be recorded, and for those who register, we will provide the recording for your review.

While the webinar lasts about an hour, we’ll have about 30-minutes for a Q&A afterward. Don’t delay, sign up today at the button below! NOTE: this webinar had been scheduled for 10/15 but due to scheduling conflicts, our team needed to move it to 10/22.

Have questions about heat pipes and vapor chambers? email us at ats-hq@qats.com and we’ll be happy to answer them and direct you to the right solution.

Webinar: EV Battery Thermal Management

Maintaining the proper operating temperature for electric vehicle (EV) batteries is a critical component of the spread of EV across the world. If batteries are too hot, then the batteries will degrade faster, and safety becomes a concern. At lower temperatures, battery capacity and performance suffer.

Thermal management of batteries is important for EV to live up to the potential that manufacturers promise and that consumers desire. But, how can the temperature be maintained at the proper operating levels during use and how can manufacturers cope with the varied environments that the vehicles will operate in?

As an earlier post on EV battery thermal management explained, the main concerns for engineers are:

  1. At temperatures below 0°C (32°F), batteries lose charge due to slower chemical reactions taking place in the battery cells. The result is a significant loss in power, acceleration and driving range, and higher potential for battery damage during charging.
  2. At temperatures above 30°C (86°F) the battery performance degrades, posing a real issue if a vehicle’s air conditioner is needed for passengers. The result is an impact on power density and reduced acceleration response.
  3. Temperatures above 40°C (104°F) can lead to serious and irreversible damage in the battery. At even higher temperatures, e.g. 70-100°C, thermal runaway can occur. This is triggered when the runaway temperature is reached. The result is a self-heating chain reaction in a battery cell that causes its destruction while propagating to adjacent cells.

This hour-long webinar from thermal management expert Dr. Kaveh Azar, founder and CEO of Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS), presents some of the techniques that design engineers have employed to keep EV batteries within the proper temperature range both during operation and charging.
