Must know the LED lamp heat dissipation technology - heat pipe

On the market, car owners need more safety lamps, fast signal switching, high brightness lighting effect and high performance price ratio. In the design of LED lamp, heat dissipation is the core problem of highlighting LED automobile lamps. The heat concentration of high brightness chips is also an unavoidable topic in the design of LED headlights.

There are three ways of heat transfer: conduction, convection and radiation. Any heat dissipation design is the comprehensive application of these methods. At present, there are mainly three ways to dissipate the LED headlights: natural heat dissipation, forced convection heat dissipation and heat pipe heat dissipation.

The natural heat dissipation is represented by the copper dispersed tropical zone, and the forced convection heat dissipation is represented by the fan. I believe you all know quite well the above two heat dissipation modes.

But the heat pipe cooling should be less understood?


Heat pipe heat dissipation is the most stable thermal conduction device in the industry. Its heat conduction speed is higher than that of pure copper substrate tens to hundreds of times. It is commonly used in computer CPU cooling. It can quickly transfer the heat generated by the LED chip in the fastest way, faster and more effective than other heat dissipating materials. So what is the principle of the heat pipe?

Heat pipe is a passive heat transfer element using phase change heat transfer technology, which transfers heat through the phase transformation of the working fluid (between the liquid phase and the vapor phase). The typical heat pipe is composed of shell, wick and working fluid. When the heat pipe is absorbed at one end, the liquid medium of the endothermic end is vaporized into steam, and the steam moves to the other end under the pressure of the internal pressure of the heat pipe, and the cold end is liquefied after being cooled, releasing the latent heat and recondensing it into liquid medium, and reflux through the structure of the liquid sucking core.

As shown below, the area of heat evaporation in the working fluid is called the evaporation section. The area of the liquefied steam is called the condensing section. Between the evaporation section and the condensing section, the heat pipe is very little heat exchange between the heat pipe and the outside, which is called the adiabatic section.

The Taida T9 series LED auto lamp sets three kinds of heat dissipation means, which are heat pipe, heat sink and fan. The heat pipe can quickly bring the temperature of the lamp to the bottom of the big lamp, and then pass the cooling trough of the fan straight to cool it. The heat pipe can heat the heat, the radiator and the convection of the fan, and the heat dissipation is efficient and effective. The life of the growing lamp.
