PT Pipe - Liquid cold plates with copper pipes
Liquid cooler with copper pipes connected to an aluminum plate via epoxy resin.
These are the most widespread liquid cooling solutions currently on the market, as they were also the first to be introduced. The base is an aluminum plate with grooves, made using a mechanical milling process, into which copper pipes are later inserted. It is an ideal solution, given its good thermal conductivity and the copper’s resistance to corrosion.
The metal joint between pipe and plate is created via mechanical interference with the addition of thermally conductive epoxy resin to minimise the exchange inefficiency potentially created by an imperfect contact and, therefore, a micro-gap of air. In PT Pipes with copper pipes, the cooling device is in direct contact with the pipe itself, thereby optimising thermal performance.
