Nuventix Introduces the Smallest, Lightest, Most Reliable LED Thermal Solution for High Bay

Cool up to 20,000 lumens with Nuventix’ new R150-170! Utilizing SynJet technology this new LED Cooler is 33% smaller and 60% lighter than any passive solution while managing to side step the typical pitfalls that go with active solutions such as reliability and noise. This new product in an ever expanding portfolio of ideal thermal management solutions promises to lower overall costs while offering a better overall product.

“Our customers wanted more lumens from a smaller design for high bay applications and we delivered – companies simply can’t cool 20,000 lumens in a 6-inch diameter design without our new SynJet cooler,” said Jim Balthazar, CEO and president of Nuventix. “High bay lighting is an area of great potential and growth for the LED industry. The energy paybacks are immediate, and SynJet technology makes these savings even greater.”

The modular solution can be used independently as a stand-alone heatsink or with up to three SynJets, enabling flexibility in design and cooling and allowing for an entire line of low bay and high bay luminaires with the same form factor. Due to its heat pipes and the SynJet air transfer, the R150-170 has exceptional heat spreading and can cool up to 20,000 lumens in a round shape design. The efficiency of this design allows for the use of low cost compact LED arrays running at high currents without sacrificing color quality, brightness, or lifetime.

The R150-170 high bay solution reduces the total cost of ownership of the LED system by maintaining thermal performance over the life of the system, saving on maintenance costs for end-users. High bay LED luminaires require significantly less in maintenance costs than fluorescents or 400-watt metal halide systems assuming the LEDs meet their rated performance with effective thermal management. Customers will also realize more than 30 percent energy cost reduction from fluorescents and more than 40 percent from 400-watt metal halides.

LED lighting manufactures will also realize substantial cost savings with the R150-170 SynJet solution. Because of the R150-170 cooler’s advanced thermal spreading and heat transfer capabilities, lighting manufacturers will be able to use smaller, less-expensive LED arrays and still achieve high color quality and lumen output.
