Keep cool [IDX15D1]

23 February 2015

AMETEK Rotron (Stand 07-C34) has released a 19in rack-mountable liquid-cooling heat exchanger assembly designed for years of reliable service in harsh and demanding applications, including military and commercial equipment racks.

The unit, housed within a ruggedised 6U aluminium chassis, is one of various similar heat exchangers that are designed to dissipate more than 10kW of heat. In one particular application, the heat exchanger pairs copper-nickel cores with a MAXIAX vane-axial blower to dissipate heat from the electronics rack for a ship’s water supply.

According to AMETEK Rotron, assemblies can be customised for different input voltages, heat transfer rates, chassis-mounting options and mil-grade environmental requirements, including acoustic and structure-borne noise requirements.

The units can be paired with tube axial fans and monitored using Rotron low-speed warning detectors.

They can also include power inverters that allow the use of 400Hz or DC fans and blowers. This enables increased volumetric flow and pressure within a compact design.
