With the advent of the 5G era, many fields and industries have also attracted a climax because of it, and even the medical industry is no exception. The benefits brought by 5G are mainly in the speed of data transmission. To the request and cause delays, thereby affecting its operation.
The heating of equipment and equipment is one of the main factors that endanger its stability and reliability. The heating of equipment and equipment is unavoidable, because a part of the energy will be lost when the energy is converted into the target energy, and a large part of this part of the energy is Loss in the form of heat, if the heat dissipation is not done in time, the surface temperature of the heat source is too high and it is damaged, thereby affecting the performance of the product.
The medical industry has put forward many innovative topics for thermal management. Due to the continuous research and development of medical equipment technology, smaller, faster, more accurate and more reliable performance is required, and the energy consumption rate of different medical equipment varies greatly. Surgical instruments may only consume a few watts of power, but space and touch temperature constraints greatly increase the difficulty of heat dissipation, while larger instruments may consume hundreds of watts of power, which is very difficult for internal components and systems. Temperature control limit, causing a lot of trouble.
The 5G era means an increase in power consumption, and it also represents a test for heat dissipation. Normally, a heat sink is installed above the heat source to guide heat into the heat sink, and the direct contact between the heat sink and the heat source is It is impossible to effectively dissipate heat, because there is a gap between the radiator and the heat source, and there is air in the gap. The air is a poor conductor of heat, and the heat transfer efficiency from the surface of the radiator to the radiator is reduced, resulting in poor heat dissipation. Achieve the desired effect.
How to break through the encirclement of medical heat dissipation with such rapid technological innovation, single heat dissipation thinking is not enough, it needs multiple integration of research and development, materials, and services to successfully solve key heat dissipation problems.
In order to effectively solve the problem of poor heat dissipation of medical equipment, thermally conductive materials have also emerged. Thermally conductive materials are a general term for many thermally conductive medium materials, including thermally conductive silicone sheets, thermally conductive silicone cloth, thermally conductive insulating sheets, thermally conductive gel, and thermally conductive silicone grease. Thermally conductive double-sided adhesive, thermally conductive adhesive, thermally conductive potting glue, etc., and each thermally conductive material has its advantages and areas of expertise.
The thermal conductive material mainly acts between the radiator and the heat source, fills the gap between the interfaces, removes the air between the interfaces, reduces the contact thermal resistance, improves the heat conduction transfer efficiency, and thus improves the heat dissipation effect.
