Synano is developing nanofluid based heat pipes for highly efficient cooling of the high heat flux devices.
Nanofluids are suspensions of nanometer sized particles in base fluids like water, Ethylene glycol and other organic/inorganic liquids. These nanoparticles can be made of metal (Al, Cu, Ti), metal oxides (Al2O3) or carbon nanotubes. These nanofluids provide enhanced heat transfer capabilities as compared to base fluid. The thermal performance of heat pipes increase up to 20% with these nanofluids. Therefore, high heat flux electronics can be cooled more efficiently.
