Generative Liquid Cooling

By Diabatix
Liquid cold plates designed using generative technology usher in additional layers of performance and adaptability. Each design is unique, precisely optimized to your heat source(s), manufacturing method, material and dimensions. Resulting in hot spot elimination.

Freeing the flow from the conventional pipe like s-shaped structure and channeling it through islands instead greatly reduces the pressure drop as well as increases flow uniformity. This results in high temperature uniformity and heat transfer.
  • High temperature uniformity
    The small channels have a high contact area with the liquid, improving the convective cooling.
  • High thermal mixing
    The small pockets ensure that the thermal boundary layer is interrupted and subsequently re-initiated.
  • High heat transfer
    The small structures and pins have a high contact area with the liquid, resulting in very high heat transfer.
  • Effective flow
    The large channel carries cold liquid through to the smaller channels, which then regulate flow through a bottleneck effect to ensure even distribution.

Lower thermal resistance and pressure drop, higher efficiency gains

Compared to an s-shaped design, our generative design results in higher efficiency gains, lower thermal resistance, and lower pressure drop.
Why Diabatix?

Better heat transfer, more
design freedom.

See our software in action

With generative design, the role of designers and engineers is to frame the problem and define the goals, which the software interprets, and then uses to guide its way towards an optimal design option.
