Gun-drilled liquid cold plates

A gun-drilled liquid cold plates is usually fabricated by drilling a series of holes through the length of an aluminum plate, inserting copper or stainless-steel tubing, and then expanding the tubing to ensure a secure metal-to-metal contact with efficient thermal transfer properties. If aluminum corrosion is not a risk, it is possible to flow coolant with an ethylene glycol additive directly through the gun-drilled holes without inserting the tubing.

Product Introduction

Liquid cooling is the only solution that can keep your overclocked hardware under control without the risk of overheating. Increase the lifespan of your components Components can die from being constantly run at excessively high temperatures. With liquid cooling, your components will stay cooler and last much longer than usual.

A gun-drilled liquid cold plates For the return fluid path, the holes are drilled perpendicular to the main fluid path and then partially plugged to create a continuous coolant path. Before the advent of two-sided tubed cold plates, gun drilling was the preferred approach for two-sided applications.

There are several thermal/mechanical advantages of a cold plate solution:
High heat transfer coefficient (h)
High heat load and heat flux capacity
Adaptable to any temperature range

Cold plate design and analysis
Pioneer Thermal engineers use the latest CFD thermal analysis tools to accurately simulate the thermal behavior of a particular device, board, or chassis. The design and manufacturing team utilize the latest in 3D CAD design tools such as Solidwords, ProE, and AutoCAD to accurately and realistically design thermal solutions, and to insure its fit and function within customer applications.
