The CeramCool® principle can also be followed for heat sinks that rely on air as a cooling medium: ceramic fin coolers in a wide variety of geometries are an interesting alternative for applications that do not allow liquid cooling.
CeramCool® fin coolers make it possible to design more compact, smaller passive or active air-cooled systems while delivering the same cooling power when compared to conventional coolers. This technology follows the same principle of directly connecting a heat source to the ceramic heat-sink surface without thermal interfaces.
They are already used successfully in LED lighting and illumination technology, where they deliver another key advantage especially in interior lighting: the aesthetic effect of the translucent material and the myriad options it offers in lighting and luminaire design.
CeramCool® Fin Cooler
- Compact, smaller than conventional coolers with the same cooling power
- No additional circuit board required; the metalized fin heat-sink is the circuit board
- No thermal compounds or heat-conducting adhesives required
- Resistant to UV and environmental influences
