TAL presents a unique system for cooling power leds13.04.2012
Porifera is a unique system for cooling power leds and other electronic components through aluminium foam. The unique properties of this aluminium foam allow for a much higher cooling performance compared to conventional cooling bodies. LED light fixtures that make use of Porifera technology have greater efficiency, made possible through the following characteristics:
- Large cooling surface. The larger the cooling surface, the more heat can be dissipated.
- Low mass per volume. So the thicker the material, the slower it cools down.
- Porous: the open cell structure allows for a free flow of air through the mazes of the foam thus securing an optimal heat exchange with the environment.
- Isotropic: the interconnected bubbles form a convoluted path for any gases or liquids flowing through them.
An LED's life span and its efficiency are directly correlated with its junction temperature.
- Longer LED life span;
- Improved LED efficiency;
- Lower power consumption;
