Baknor will be showcasing its in-house designed, developed and manufactured liquid cold plates, that dissipate heat from electric and hybrid propulsion systems.
The Baknor team will be on hand to discuss turbulators; a strong performing and cost- effective method of increasing the coolant velocity in channels, with minimal increase in pressure from a pump.
A liquid cold plate, which incorporates turbulators, provides the design engineer much less restriction in size, weight and cost. Using water – glycol mixtures - the company says it can provide a custom solution specific to a customer’s system, especially if a design includes high power electronics, inverters, DC-DC converters, hybrid and electric drive system, variable speed drives, traction drives, CPU, chillers, power supplies, etc.
Baknor has developed various manufacturing techniques to ensure that a solution is not limited to a specific process, which includes: Machining, Extrusions, Forging, Castings with Friction Stir Welding, Welding or Brazing, and using Pin Fin Channels, Micro Machined Channels, or Extruded Channels.
Utilizing extruded internal liquid channels with turbulators no longer requires expensive drilling and fabricated processes, and it also overcomes size and weight limitations. The liquid channels locations can be determined in order to accommodate almost all power semiconductors.
