Abstract

A redundant air-to-liquid heat exchanger scheme for use in a closed loop air cooling system for electronic units is described. The scheme utilizes two air-to-liquid heat exchangers that may be rotated into the air flow path as required. A single motor with belts driving a pulley on each heat exchanger is used to swing the heat exchangers in and out of the air flow path. Each heat exchanger is supplied cooling liquid from a separate source.
