Parker provides heat exchangers and heat rejection units (HRUs) designed for cooling various fluids in a variety of platform environments. Our HRUs remove thousands of watts of heat from fluid to air or to a secondary fluid. HRUs manage coolant temperature based on measured system parameters to create a “set and forget” thermal management solution.
Thermal Management Systems End-to-end liquid cooling systems
Complete solutions enabling today’s EW, radar, signal intelligence, and embedded electronics
Aerospace and defense electronic systems are driving significant increases in power densities, resulting in thermal management challenges across a wide range of applications. Parker’s thermal management systems (TMS) team delivers complete end-to-end liquid-cooling solutions with significant advantages in size, weight, and power (SWaP) for mission-critical applications. From ships at sea to high-altitude unmanned aircraft, Parker TMS solutions enable electronics survivability in the harshest environments.

Single- and two-phase cooling solutions
Complete thermal management systems solutions
From liquid-cooled conduction and SprayCool® enclosures using flow-through or direct-spray technology to heat exchangers, controllers, pumps, and cold plate assemblies, Parker TMS offers end-to-end, system-level solutions to meet the unique thermal management challenges required by today’s military electronics.
Liquid-cooled conduction enclosure
Parker’s liquid-cooled conduction enclosures utilize proprietary manufacturing techniques to get the liquid close to the card edges, thus enabling lower flow rates and smaller cooling systems. Enclosures can support conduction cards in excess of 200 watts.
Parker’s cold plate and component cooling solutions now feature some of the thinest and lightest "ultra-thin" high efficiency solutions, to deliver localized cooling of hot spots , and are especially well-suited for radar and EW transmitters, directed energy weapons, and power electronics. Solutions range from single- to two-phase cold plates.
Parker’s SprayCool® enclosure series provides scalable designs using proven SprayCool technology technology which enables customers to select air-cooled 3U or 6U COTS cards for use in harsh operating environments.
Pumps, reservoirs, and controllers
Parker can support the infrastructure required to reject the heat contained in fluid with complete system solutions and components such as pumps, motors, controllers, reservoirs, and filters.
Heat exchangers and heat rejection units
Valves, hoses, and quick disconnects
Combining diverse fluid-handling experience and products enables Parker to provide highly engineered, integrated system solutions for the most challenging thermal management needs.
