The Advantages of the New Liquid-cooled LED Light Bulbs
A new form of revolutionary liquid-cooled LED lights has entered the stage of more efficient and environmentally-friendly lighting. It is the first in the genre of “eco” lighting to be able to match the brightness of a regular 100-watt bulb. The innovative technology uses on a tiny fraction of the energy needed to power a normal 100-watt bulb to the same brightness level.
LED lighting has always had one small drawback – a lower capability of LED lights to produce a similar level of brightness to conventional light bulbs. This shortcoming has curtailed its expansion into more every day use. However, the new liquid-cooled technology has opened to the door for LED lights to be used in many more applications.
The Inner-workings of the Liquid-cooled LED Light
The key ingredient in this new product design is a specially designed fluid solution. The liquid is vacuum-sealed into the LED light bulb. By creating a liquid in a vacuum, the technology allows for maximum heat dissipation. This in turn enhances the efficient way that the LED components in the light bulb manage heat.
Why is this so important?
The majority of conventional LED-based lights are not designed to optimise heat dissipation. Their design radiates heat and reduces the amount of light produced, ultimately degrading the quality of light emitted and its efficiency. The thermal build-up inside the bulb leads to an inefficient use of energy, which can produce a certain level of toxic build-up.
The new liquid-cooled LED technology uses both liquid and metal conductors, inside the bulb, to achieve optimal heat dissipation. The LED module itself is immersed in liquid to quickly remove heat from hotspots and efficiently disperse it from the entire glass surface.
This liquid serves two purposes by cooling the glass from the inside, whilst the air cools the glass from the outside. In comparison, more traditional LED bulbs attempt to dissipate the heat at the base of the bulb. This method is a much more inefficient and costly. The liquid-cooled technology prevents hotspots, which are notoriously dangerous and add to the increased inefficiency of the lighting product.
Liquid LEDs Improve Light Transmission and Efficiency
The liquid used in the new LED technology is non-toxic and harmless. It is made from a mineral oil that is safe for human consumption and biodegradable. The environmental benefits to this new technology are maximised in conjunction with reduced energy consumption levels.
One of the great benefits to using this type of light bulb is the improved transmission of light. These liquid-cooled light bulbs are able to diffuse light at an angle greater than 260 degrees. In previous incarnations of LED lights this deficiency restricted their use to spot-lighting and under-cabinet lighting.
Recent generations of LED lighting designers were able to use frosting and other types of coating to create a more ambient form of light diffusion. However this resulted in greater inefficiency and heat build-up inside the bulb.
The latest liquid-cooled technology solves all of the above problems – allowing for an ambient light source that is both efficient and designer.
