ACT’s extensive technical expertise in thermal technologies enables us to offer our customers a broad range of custom thermal solutions. Heat Pipes, Heat Exchangers, Cold Plates, etc. in many different combinations are available. Browse the array of products below to learn more.

Heat Pipes

ACT is one of leading manufacturers and suppliers of heat pipes in the United States. We produce a wide variety of heat pipes, heat sinks and heat pipe assemblies for thermal management of electronics and applications such as LEDs, card chassis, lasers, radar systems and medical systems. Our heat pipes offer a high thermal conductivity range of 10,000 to 100,000 W/m K and excellent shock/vibration and freeze/thaw tolerance. They also provide an extremely cost-effective thermal control system solution.

Heat Spreaders

Our heat spreader product offerings include HiK™ aluminum plates equipped with embedded heat pipes that provide enhanced thermal conductivity properties. They also provide an extremely cost-effective electronics thermal management solution that is ideally suited for multiple component systems. In addition, you’ll find a variety of vapor chambers for applications such as computer servers, electronics thermal cooling systems and medical devices.

Heat Sinks

We produce heat pipe heat sinks for electronic thermal management applications. We feature HiK™ heat sinks that maximize air-cooled applications for natural and forced air convection. In addition to power electronics, other applications include radar systems, card chassis and extreme environments.

Loop Heat Pipes

We manufacture high-quality loop heat pipe products that comply with the stringent AS9100: 2009 quality standards. Our loop heat pipes are ideally suited for high thermal transfer in extreme operating conditions. Applications include heat transport, avionics cooling, payload thermal management and many others.

Liquid Cold Plates

Liquid cold plates are often used in thermal management of electronics to remove heat loads that are beyond the capability of convection air cooling. Our extensive design capabilities enable us to develop highly efficient cold plates that provide the perfect balance between meeting specific thermal requirements and minimizing cost. We offer cold plate systems with various flow options, including serpentine tube, manifold tube, mini channel and micro channel.

Heat Exchangers

ACT is your source for heat pipe heat exchangers that provide passive energy recovery for HVAC systems. They provide advanced dehumidification by cooling incoming airstreams while eliminating overcooling. These systems contain no moving parts and require no preventive maintenance. Most owners recoup their initial investment in less than two years due to increased energy savings.

Custom Test Rigs

ACT can design and build automated custom test rigs for a large range of applications, including test rigs for high heat flux pumped single and two phase cooling, evaluating protective coating near jet engines, compressibility, precise temperature control, simulating aircraft enclosures, and flammability.
