Heat dissipation, often known as thermal management is required in all electronic devices and circuitry to prevent the devices from overheating. Heat dissipation devices increase a products reliability and helps prevent premature failure.
GD Rectifiers offers a wide range of heat dissipation solutions, including: six types of heatsinks and four types of power assemblies.
GD Rectifiers Heatsinks
We offer a wide range of extruded aluminium heatsinks, available from stock or made to order. All extrusions can be supplied as cut lengths or drilled and machined to customised specifications. We operate the latest CNC drilling and machining centres which provide precision-cut, cost efficient heatsinks on short lead times.
GD Rectifiers Power Assemblies
We offer a wide range of power assemblies designed using high thermal conductivity aluminium plates for maximum heat dissipation. We specialise in the design of assemblies such as rectifiers, regulators, inverters, selenium suppressors, firing circuits/trigger modules and single phase, three phase and hexaphase assemblies. We utilise the experience of our mechanical, electrical and power electronics engineering experts to test, design and deliver the best technology in our products.
