Acota offers a range of products that can be used in heat transfer or cooling processes:
Thermal Management Fluids
The ability to transfer heat from one place to another is crucially important to electronics, semiconductor and battery manufacturers. The dielectric fluids that are used to maintain temperatures are under increasing demand to provide a long-term, low maintenance, high performance solution with excellent environmental and safety credentials. Heat transfer and cooling fluids are used in many industries.
Customers use products in many diverse applications, including thermal testing and immersion cooling of electronics. Their aim is to improve reliability, address environmental concerns, and lower overall operating costs.
Our heat transfer and cooling fluids are a range of chemically inert, clear, colourless, stable non-flammable fluids with low environmental impact and high thermal stability. Acota’s technical experts are available to recommend the best thermal management fluid for your needs.
With a boiling point range of between 34°C and 270°C, Acota’s range of fluids can be used in many different applications where high dielectric strength and safe, efficient thermal management are required.
Typical applications include:
- Testing of high voltage electrical equipment
- Thermal management of CPUs
- Thermal management of Data Centres
- Thermal shock testing (MIL-SPEC)
- Battery cells
- Fuel cells
- Hermetic seal testing (MIL-SPEC)
- Electronic reliability testing
- Lyophilisation / freeze-drying process
- Solar energy cells as a direct coolant
- Heat exchangers
- Reactor cooling
- Radar transmitters
- High voltage transformers
- Power supplies
3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids, 3M™ Fluorinert™ Electronic Liquids and Certonal® fluids are compatible with a wide variety of materials used in heat transfer equipment.
3M™ Boron Nitride Cooling Fillers are a family of advanced ceramic materials used to help improve thermal conductivity in polymers whilst maintaining or improving electrical insulation. They are also ideal for developing lightweight parts with complex geometries.
High Temperature Textiles
3M™ Nextel Ceramic Fabrics 312 and 440 are used for a variety of high temperature sealing and heat shielding applications, performing beyond the limits of conventional high temperature textiles such as aramids, carbon, quartz and glass. They are excellent choices for seals , gaskets, furnace linings, heat shields and electrical insulation.
