New range said to facilitate easy connection and disconnection of tubes in demanding environments
Camozzi Automation has launched a new range of push-in fittings to enable the smooth passage of fluids in cooling systems.
The Series 7000 Fluidics range has been designed with a special Bio-sourced PA11 technopolymer, reinforced with 20% glass fibre and based on renewable raw materials that allows the component to resist water absorption, temperature variations and cooling liquid additives.
Constant dimensional stability
"The material maintains constant dimensional stability in contact with different fluids, giving it excellent corrosion resistance over a long lifecycle, whilst high phosphorus nickel plating gives additional protection in corrosive acidic environments," says Camozzi.
"Liquid cooling systems are generally considered to be superior to air cooling systems, in terms of their energy efficiency, effectiveness, compact dimensions and noise reduction," adds the company, "and serve a wide range of applications, from computer servers to industrial equipment."
The push-in assembly of this new range is said to facilitate easy connection and disconnection of tubes in demanding and confined industrial equipment environments, reducing set-up and maintenance times. Laser systems, circuits for plastic injection and welding equipment all require accurate thermal control of the working tool and/or workpieces and these new fittings have been designed specifically to achieve this.
Protection against overheating
In computer and electronics cooling environments, the Series 7000 Fluidics range offers protection against overheating in applications including data centre racks, aluminium cold plates, servers and power supplies for electronic systems, such as power packs, battery racks and fuel cells.
Advanced gripping characteristics give a uniform tightening on the whole surface of the tube, adds Camozzi, "which in turn enhances reliability and endurance against repeated connection and disconnection".
