Air Cooling Solutions: Air Cooling Systems and Thermal Solutions

Air cooling solutions are the most common cooling method. They are cost effective and 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 are found across all industries and in a large percentage of electronics.

Air cooling 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 are 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.

Air Cooling Solutions: Heat Sinks

Heat sinks are the foundation of an effective air cooling solution. They either dissipate heat with natural convection or forced convection cooling from a fan or blower for more powerful cooling. Heat sinks come in a variety of constructions and depend on application parameters such as air flow, flow type, environmental conditions, and available volume.

Air Cooling Solutions: Axial Fans

Boyd axial fans and blowers boost the performance of air cooling solutions. We customize high performance fans and blowers for demanding applications. Boyd’s design team paired with our manufacturing and test facilities can produce higher flow rates while minimizing acoustics and vibration, allowing customers additional system design flexibility.

Air Cooling Solutions: Air Cooled Chassis and Enclosures

Increasing SWaP requirements are pushing the integration of thermal management solutions into enclosures and chassis. Creative engineers incorporate additional surface area, so enclosures and chassis act as both structural and air-cooled thermal solutions.

Air Cooling Solutions: Air to Air Heat Exchangers

Air to air heat exchangers are an effective way to transfer heat between two separate air systems, whether it’s moving heat from inside an enclosure to ambient air or from one enclosed air system to another. Boyd’s conduction or passive two phase systems transfer heat from one side of the heat exchanger to the other for effective air cooling.
