As electronics devices become more powerful, liquid cooling is becoming much more prevalent across most industries as it is the most compact and efficient method for cooling high density heat loads. Liquid cooled thermal management solutions take advantage of liquids’ higher heat capacity to transfer and dissipate heat loads. Liquids can absorb and transport more heat than air, enabling high performance cooling solutions.

Aavid offers liquid solutions at the device, enclosure, or facility level ranging from small off-the-shelf cold plates for testing purposes to complex liquid cooled systems integrating multiple technologies to cool some of the largest data centers in the world. Aavid liquid cooling solutions provide increased efficiency, utilization, energy recovery, and reliability across all system levels.

Liquid Cold Plates

Liquid cold plates are a critical component of a liquid cooled system. Aavid has the broadest range of design and manufacturing liquid cold plate technologies in the industry. Our global capabilities enable us to develop and produce more efficient and compact cooling for extremely high heat loads while still maintaining design flexibility and reducing costs.

Liquid Heat Exchangers

Liquid heat exchangers are an effective method to transfer heat from a liquid system to another system, either another liquid system (Liquid to Liquid) or an air system (Liquid to Air). By providing high surface areas for liquid paths to reject or absorb heat, liquid heat exchangers improve the efficiency of a complete liquid cooling system.

Aavid engineering teams combine their expertise with hundreds of options for custom and semi-custom heat exchangers including a wide range of fin options, heat pipes and other enhancements, an extensive selection of fluids, oils, and coolants, and a wide range of fabrication methods to design and manufacture liquid heat exchangers to enhance any system.

Ambient Liquid Cooling Systems

Aavid’s technological advancements in liquid cooling does not stop at cold plates; we are one of the world leaders in integrated ambient liquid cooling systems. Our systems range from modular assemblies to fully customized facility level cooling. They include systems with smart instrumentation controls for flow, pressure, and temperature, along with pump assisted assemblies for single and two phase flow, ideal for isothermal spreading requirements. Aavid’s design engineering expertise combined with our wide range of manufacturing capabilities allow us to fabricate optimized, integrated systems as a one-stop-shop.

Recirculating Chillers

Recirculating chillers provide precise temperature control and cooling below ambient temperature. They can be designed as stand-alone systems or designed for integration within a larger system. By utilizing the right components in the loop, recirculating chillers can meet a wide range of sub-ambient cooling requirements, which include meeting extreme temperatures or cooling large heat loads.

Our recirculating chillers are designed for flexibility by implementing a wide variety of pumps, controllers, and additional safety and monitoring features enable you to tailor your chiller to your specific application.

Extreme Temperature Recirculating Chillers can meet temperatures as low as -80°C and as high as 200°C with temperature stability as tight as ±0.5°C (±0.9°F).

High Capacity Recirculating Chillers either have a cooling capacity of either 21 kW or 50 kW and have a temperature stability of either ±0.5°C (±0.9°F) or ±1.0°C (±1.8°F).

Liquid Cooled Chassis & Enclosures

More products are moving towards integrated enclosures or chassis and thermal management solutions. By incorporating a liquid flow path within an enclosure or chassis and ensuring an adequate thermal connection to heat sources, enclosures and chassis can act both as a structural and thermal solution.

Liquid flow paths within chassis and enclosures can be as simple as tubes bonded to the structure or have complex internal geometries that optimize liquid contact area, flow rate, and pressure drop. Enclosures can utilize a broad range of capabilities and fabrication methods to enable Aavid engineers to provide our customers with the most effective liquid cooled solution for their product.

Popular fabrication methods include aluminum die casting, sheet metal bending, welding, dip brazing, and vacuum brazing.
