Norwood, MA, September 4, 2012 - The new CLWT-115 research quality, closed
loop wind tunnel from Advanced Thermal Solutions provides an accurate and
convenient system for thermally characterizing PCBs, heat sinks and components
at controlled temperatures from ambient to 85°C (185°F).
The CLWT-115 wind tunnel produces air flows up to 5 m/s (1,000 ft/min). Using
optional orifice plates it can generate flows up to 50 m/s (10,000 ft/min). The
instrument's clear Lexan test section provides a continuous view of the test
specimens, as well as flow visualization studies, e.g. using smoke or vapor.
Unlike open loop wind tunnels, the CLWT-115 recirculates internal air. This
allows the system heater to quickly warm the air to a specific temperature. The
testing of boards and components in hot air is a requirement in some NEBS and
other standards. The precise controls and temperature range of the CLWT-115 wind
tunnel allows its use for testing heat sink performance and for calibrating air
and temperature sensors.
The wind tunnel provides a generous test section measuring 77.6 cm x 26 cm x
11.6 cm (30.5 in x 10.2 in x 4.55 in). This chamber can be accessed from the top
or sides for mounting and repositioning boards, components and sensors. Internal
rail guides provide an easy system to install test specimens of different sizes
(e.g., PCBs, heat sinks). Six instrument ports in the side walls of the test
section are for temperature and velocity sensors such as thermocouples, Pitot
tubes and hotwire anemometers.
A complete CLWT-155 wind tunnel fits on most lab benches and is powered from
standard AC outlets. Its footprint is smaller than traditional, closed loop wind
tunnels or environmental test chambers.
