Extended Surface Liquid Cold Plates
As heat transfer is directly correlated with surface area, adding surface area within the fluid path of a liquid cold plate can increase how much heat transfers into the liquid. Liquid cold plates customized with extended surfaces also benefit from additional turbulence, further improving heat transfer. Increasing turbulence is especially important for low flow rates or high viscosity fluids like oil.

Extended surfaces can be added to high heat flux areas of the liquid cold plate or added to the entirety of the flow path, depending on pressure drop and flow rate requirements. By balancing the additional pressure drop from extended surfaces with flow rate, Boyd engineers can drastically increase the performance of a liquid cold plate in its existing volume. Boyd folded fin inserts, skived fin inserts, and wire turbulators are the most common and cost-effective ways to improve cold plate performance.

Liquid Cold Plates
Liquid cold plates are a critical component of a liquid cooled system. Aavid has the broadest range of design and manufacturing liquid cold plate technologies in the industry. Our global capabilities enable us to develop and produce more efficient and compact cooling for extremely high heat loads while still maintaining design flexibility and reducing costs.


Liquid Cooling
As electronics devices become more powerful, liquid cooling is becoming much more prevalent across most industries as it is the most compact and efficient method for cooling high density heat loads. Liquid cooled thermal management solutions take advantage of liquids’ higher heat capacity to transfer and dissipate heat loads. Liquids can absorb and transport more heat than air, enabling high performance cooling solutions.

Boyd offers liquid solutions at the device, enclosure, or facility level ranging from small off-the-shelf cold plates for testing purposes to complex liquid cooled systems integrating multiple technologies to cool some of the largest data centers in the world. Boyd liquid cooling solutions provide increased efficiency, utilization, energy recovery, and reliability across all system levels.

With more than 90 years of experience, Boyd is a global leader in thermal management and engineered material solutions for the world’s most demanding applications.
