Industrial Thermal Management Solutions
The cooling capacity demands for industrial equipment such as industrial lasers, liquid chromatography, and semiconductor fabrication can vary from a couple of hundred Watts to hundreds of Kilowatts with required temperature control ranges from -80°C to +150°C. Laird offers both solid-state thermoelectric and liquid cooling solutions that address the wide range of cooling and temperature control requirements for industrial equipment, and has the expertise in engineering design services and a global presence that supports onsite concept generation, thermal modeling, mechanical and electrical design and rapid prototyping to deliver optimized thermal management for the industrial sector.
Industrial Laser Cooling
Requirements for any industrial laser system are accuracy and repeatability. Whether used for cutting, welding, micro-machining, additive manufacturing or drilling, industrial lasers generate a significant amount of heat that needs to be quickly and effectively dissipated. Laird's thermoelectric solutions offers high heat pumping capabilities and precise temperature control to within ± 0.01°C under steady state condition. Providing reliable solid state operation, thermoelectric cooling does not produce noise or vibration and is available in multiple configurations.
High Performance Liquid Chromatography
Liquid chromatography is a technique used for analysis of mixtures by separating, identifying, and quantifying their constituent components. Temperature control plays a major role in the liquid chromatography separation process by influencing the interactions taking place between the sample components and adsorbent. Laird’s complete thermal management systems optimize liquid chromatography equipment by offering precise temperature control, compactness, faster temperature ramp rates and greater efficiency.
Semiconductor Fabrication Equipment Cooling
Thousands of cooling and temperature control systems are installed and operate continuously in fabrication facilities. The critical production tools used in semiconductor fabrication facilities must be reliable and easy to service to minimize downtime. Laird offers custom cooling and temperature control systems for semiconductor fabrication equipment - which can include heat exchangers, pumps, sensors, thermoelectric modules, thermoelectric assemblies, thermoelectric chillers, compressors, flow controllers, temperature controllers, and more - that are specifically designed to keep these tools running at precise temperatures.
Industrial X-Ray Cooling
Laird designs and produces high performance, high reliability, cost-effective liquid cooling systems for industrial X-ray scanners. These robust systems dissipate the large amount of excess heat generated by the X-Ray tube while maximizing machine uptime and minimizing field repairs and maintenance.
