Flared pin fin heat sinks provide alternative for natural convection

Jan. 28, 2009
Date Announced: 28 Jan 2009 -- New heat sinks are a great fit for emerging green applicationsToronto, Canada -- Cool Innovations Inc. has introduced a new line of extremely powerful flared pin fin heat sinks. The heat sinks provide unparalleled cooling power due to a unique structure that was specifically optimized for natural convection environments.The new heat sinks feature a rugged array of round pins and are suitable for harsh industrial environments and outdoor applications.Flared pin fin heat sinks feature an array of round pins that are slanted outwards. The sparsely configured staggered pin array and the flared structure combine to produce outstanding cooling power in natural convection. At the same time, the omnidirectional pin configuration ensures that the heat sinks operate efficiently in any orientation. Flared pin fins offer up to a 30 percent performance premium over traditional pin fin heat sinks, and a substantially larger cooling premium over the majority of other heat sink designs.Flared pin fin heat sinks are forged from highly thermally conductive aluminum alloys.They are available in a wide variety of square, rectangular and round configurations, ranging in footprint from 1.0 x 1.0 in. to 5.0 x 5.0 in., and in height from 0.7 to 2.0 in. The new heat sinks are a great fit for emerging green technologies such as solar cells and advanced LED lighting, as well as any other applications & devices operating in natural convection environments.About Cool Innovations Inc.Incorporated in 1996, Cool Innovations is a privately owned provider of thermal management solutions. The company's core competencies lie in the design and manufacturing of pin fin heat sinks. Cool Innovations is considered to be one of the leading providers of pin fin heat sinks in North America.
