Water-cooling system for amplifier / Erwan Zammi Elias and Noor Azman Ahmad

Elias, Erwan Zammi and Ahmad, Noor Azman (2003) Water-cooling system for amplifier / Erwan Zammi Elias and Noor Azman Ahmad. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


Integrated Circuit (IC) is a component that is combination of gates. IC is very sensitive to heat. When high temperature is apply to IC, the efficiency of the IC will be getting low and at last the IC will be damage. That’s why in many conditions, IC have to be install with heat sink. But heal sink is not enough to release all heat from the 1C. It’s because heat sink just decrease a little bit and maintain the heat at the certain temperature. So, the 1C still have heat at the pertain temperature.
After make a research, we built up one project to settle this problem - “Water-Cooling System for Amplifier”. We use amplifier only for the application of our cooler system. It is because amplifier is the easiest example. If we flow water through the heat sink at IC, the result we get is the whole heat from the IC will released. It's because water is a very good conductor for heat. The water will absorb all heat and take it away. So, when this process is repeated again and again, the IC will always in cool. As a safety, below the heat sink there is a water detector circuit in case of leakage. If leakage happens, this circuit will shut down the centrifugal pump and “bipping” the buzzer. Then a 12v fan will turn on automatically to substitute the water-cooling system
