Flowserve develops its first electronics cooling pump
Flowserve Corp has introduced its first electronics cooling pump, said to be the smallest pump that the company has yet produced, measuring approximately 90 mm (3.54 in) in length and 36 mm (1.42 in) in diameter . The Guardian 3000 electronics cooling pump is designed for use in cooling computer processors and graphics chips in high-end consumer personal computers.
An overhung centrifugal, nonmetallic, magnetic-drive, seal-less pump, the Guardian 3000 uses patented motor technology and innovative design to achieve the small form factor necessary to fit microcomputer and other electronic package applications, Flowserve says. The Guardian 3000 is powered by an integral brushless 12-volt DC motor, and is designed for a minimum five-year maintenance-free life.
