Abstract

The cold plate illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2 eliminates the problems of fouling and corrosion inherent in water-cooled integral cold plates. The module 4 is easily serviceable in the field to correct any reduction in cooling effectiveness due to fouling of the water passage 5. The cold plate 6 may be detached and replaced with a new one. Conversely, the module may be replaced for repair, while the cold plate is retained.
