Cambridge, UK – Datapaq introduces the TB9840D heat sink for use in heat treatment applications with a high mechanical load such as nitrogen and helium gas quenches. The new and improved heat sink complements TB4500 and TB4600 thermal barriers from Datapaq. In vacuum or quench applications, it can also be used with TB4000 models. The result of innovative construction and manufacturing approaches, the new heat sink withstands vacuum as well as gas pressure quenches up to 20 bar. Thus, it allows operators to monitor complete high-temperature processes up to 1,200 °C, including heating and cooling cycles. Shortcomings of conventional heat sink designs such as ballooning or shrinkage have been removed. The new tried and tested construction with phase-change material reliably maintains a safe operating temperature below 70 °C for the data logger. New high-pressure filler seals securely prevent gas leakage or permeation in vacuum furnaces. The TB9840D heat sink can be used with Datapaq’s Tpaq21 data logger which generates temperature profiling data that can be retrieved upon exiting the process. In combination with the appropriate thermal barriers from Datapaq, reliable temperature monitoring solutions for various applications can be realized.
