Boyd serves the whole spectrum of air cooling solutions from a wide variety of heat sink applications to more complex air-to-air heat exchangers and high performance blowers. With over 50 years of expertise, Boyd designs, fabricates, and validates cost effective and efficient air cooling solutions suited to specific industry and application requirements.
Heat sinks are typically made of copper, aluminum, or a combination of materials based on project requirement. These heat sink assemblies can be fabricated in a variety of ways to best suit application needs.
Fans and Blowers greatly improve the performance of air cooled thermal management solutions. By adding increased air flow to forced convection heat sinks, engineers can cool a much higher heat load within a similar footprint.
A broad range of in-house construction methods for heat exchangers including folded fin fabrication, zipper fin production, nickel plating, heat pipe manufacturing, vacuum brazing, dip brazing, soldering, and welding.
The additional surface area improves heat transfer from the chassis to the ambient air, which can be designed for natural convection or benefit from the addition of a fan or blower.
Air cooled thermal management solutions are the most common cooling method. They are cost effective and can be a relatively straightforward to install and maintain to extend a device’s lifetime and performance. As the most well-known and widespread manner of cooling, air cooled systems can be found across all industries and in a large percentage of electronics.
Air cooled solutions range from natural convection heat sinks to advanced air flow management systems utilizing custom fans and blowers or even synthetic jet technology. These solutions can be further augmented by incorporating two phase technologies such as heat pipes or vapor chambers for better heat spreading across the passive or forced convection heat sink base.
Boyd Corporation has both design and manufacturing expertise across all heat sink technologies from basic aluminum extrusions to complicated zipper fin or die cast geometries. This experience combined with our engineers’ in-depth knowledge of air moving technologies and air flow management ensures that our air-cooled systems are fully optimized and efficiently fabricated for optimized product performance, lifetime, and reliability.
