Industrial X-ray equipment can generate several kilowatts of heat during operation, which needs to be dissipated to ensure maximum performance and long-life operation. With the ability to transfer large amounts of heat within confined spaces, liquid cooling is the preferred thermal management solution for X-ray equipment.
Liquid Cooling Systems
IT advancements and higher power and performance requirements have increased the amount of heat generated in data centers. To lower operating costs, immersion cooling utilizing heat exchangers has gained in popularity. Providing precise temperature control and bulk heat removal, this is also proved to be a more efficient cooling solution.
Increased server rack density has been greatly impacted by advancements in artificial intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, blockchain, cryptocurrency and the demand for increased computing power and performance requirements. This has contributed to an increase in the amount of heat generated in data centers. Traditional methods of air cooling have fallen short of meeting the thermal management requirements for the latest generation of servers, central processing units (CPUs) and graphics processing units (GPUs).
The LA5000 is a recirculating liquid to air heat exchanger that offers dependable, compact performance by removing large amounts of heat from a liquid circuit. The coolant is re-circulated using a high-pressure pump to assure maximum flow rate.

Laser, electron beam optics and power source for 3D printing systems must be thermally protected to ensure maximum performance and long operational lifetime. The compact Nextreme Performance Chiller platform offers a higher coefficient of performance and deliver precise temperature control for all parts of a 3D printing machine.
Industrial X-ray equipment generate a large amount of heat that needs to be quickly dissipated to ensure maximum performance and system uptime. With the ability to cool to near ambient temperatures, even at high heat loads, the LA5000 is ideal for cooling industrial x-ray applications.
The complex semiconductor fabrication requires multiple tests between processing steps to inspect defects as well as measure dimensional properties. Automated optical inspection systems require a thermal solution to dissipate waste heat and keep imaging sensors at a very precise temperature control well below ambient. Thermoelectric-based recirculating chillers provide the temperature stabilization, low pulsation and high reliability needed.
Digital microscopes utilize CCD or CMOS sensor-based cameras to capture high resolution images of microstructures. A thermal solution is required to remove waste heat and maintain very precise temperature control of imaging sensors. Thermoelectric chillers in combination with thermoelectric coolers minimize thermal noise in imaging sensors to achieve maximum image resolution.
Temperature stabilization is key to maintaining peak performance for any industrial laser system. With a cooling capacity of up to 400 Watts and a temperature stability to within ±0.05°C of the set point temperature, the NRC400 Nextreme Performance Chiller is ideal for cooling low-power laser applications.
One critical element of today’s diagnostic equipment is its cooling system. The cooling system prevents overheating, which can cause equipment to malfunction. Additionally, cooling solutions help maintain thermal stability of lab instrumentation, which is necessary for high-quality results. Considering the importance of medical imaging and diagnostic tests to monitor and maintain patients’ health, the equipment and the lab must be thermally maintained to ensure equipment consistently meets stated performance expectations.
