Custom Heat Sink Manufacturer
Vapor Chamber & Heat Pipe Heat Sinks

Celsia is a custom heat sink manufacturer specializing in vapor chamber and heat pipe thermal assemblies. Heat sink design and optimization is done jointly between our US headquarters and Taiwan facilities, while heat sink manufacturing is done exclusively at the latter. ISO certified and compliant with ITAR, RoHS, & REACH.

Heat Sink Manufacturer Using Two-Phase Cooling Technologies

Heat pipes or vapor chambers are used in all custom heat sinks manufactured by Celsia.

Heat Pipe Wick Types

Heat Pipes

Heat pipes are ideal for transporting heat to a remote heat sink. Changes to shape, wick thickness, wick porosity and fluid loading are optimized for each heat sink design. Bending and flattening are common modifications.

One-Piece Vapor Chamber with Embossment

1-Piece Vapor Chamber

One-piece vapor chambers were pioneered by Celsia a decade ago. This unique design is cost comparable to multi heat pipe solutions and allows Z axis bending to form U and L shapes. Great for spreading heat to a local heat sink.

Two-Piece Vapor Chamber with Embossment

2-Piece Vapor Chamber

Two-piece vapor chambers can be stamped into any shape along the X and Y axes to mold around crowded components or reduce weight. Surfaces can be embossed up to 8mm to reach recessed heat sources.

Custom Manufactured Two-Phase Heat Sinks

Extruded Heat Sink

Extruded Heat Sink

Pairing heat pipes or vapor chambers with extruded heat sinks offers a cost-effective and reliable two-phase solution.

Zipper Fin Heat Sink

Zipper Fin Heat Sink

Allowing for very high fin density, these heat sinks are the most common performance choice for use with heat pipes

Machined Heat Sink

Machined Heat Sink

Offering the most design flexibility, and highest cost, CNC machined heat sinks are used when production volumes are small.

Skived Heat Sink

Skived Heat Sink

Heat sinks manufactured using this process have excellent thermal properties coupled with high fin aspect ratio and low tooling cost.

Full Heat Sink Assemblies

Full Heat Sink Assemblies

To streamline installation, complete thermal assemblies can come with attached fans, mounting hardware, and TIM material.

Heat Sink Oddities

Heat Sink Oddities

When ‘traditional’ heat sink designs won’t work, Celsia can provide square heat pipes, two-phase bricks, or vertical vapor chambers.
