# Liquid Cooling

Here are some guidelines when using a liquid cooling system with our products. You can buy directly a liquid cooling kit from Dyze Design, order it from a specialized manufacturer, or even build your own.

# Kits

A kit will contain all the standard parts you need to get the liquid system up and running. Our Dyze Design Liquid Cooling Kit is tailored for our products, both in term of material and performance. Other kits can also be used, but care must be taken regarding possible galvanic corrosion due to the presence of copper and brass pipes.

# Dyze Design Liquid Cooling Kit

The Dyze Design Liquid Cooling Kit contains the following elements:

  • A powerful 1200 l / h pump
  • A big reservoir containing 900 ml
  • Two 240mm aluminum radiators
  • Four 120mm fans

# Build your own

# Pump

  • At least 300 L/h
  • Always running when the printer is
  • Should be compatible with aluminum
  • Head pressure should be more than the highest vertical distance the water will flow. Usually, 2 meters is adequate.

# Reservoir

  • Transparent, to see water level
  • 500ml capacity or more
  • Fill port, greatly useful for maintenance

# Radiator

  • Choose the right size for our product:
    • 80mm radiator is enough for a DyzEnd and DyzeXtruder
    • 120mm radiator is enough for a Typhoon
  • Should be made from aluminum. Copper and Brass radiator should be avoided to prevent galvanic corrosion

# Tubing

  • High temperature type tubing is preferred
  • Low bend radius to prevent kinking
  • Always use tube clamp to secure the system
  • Use cable chain and anti-kink coils where needed

# Liquid

WARNING

Never use tap, mineral or filtered water.

  • Deonized water is preferred with about 5ppm of minerals
  • Corrosion inhibitor should be added. Cars and computer liquid cooling solution will work
  • Biocide should be added, often oncluded in the above suggestions

# Liquid cool your hotend DyzEnd-X DyzEnd Pro

  1. Remove the fan

    Use a 2mm allen wrench and remove the 4 screws holding the fan.

  2. Apply thermal paste

    Apply thermal paste on your heatsink.

  3. Install the liquid cooling block

    Use a 2mm allen wrench and install the 4 screws holding the liquid cooling block.

    WARNING

    Make sure to remove the tape under the liquid cooling block before installing it! Do not over-tighten the screws.

  4. Install the tubing

    Install your tubes inside the loop. There is no specific input or output on the liquid cooling block. Do not forget to install the hose clamps if your loop is already completed on the other end.

  5. Crimp the tube clamps

    Use a tube crimping plier and crimp the hose clamps.

# Liquid cool your extruder DyzeXtruder GT DyzeXtruder Pro

  1. Remove the screws

    Use a phillips screw driver and remove the 4 screws holding the back bell of the stepper motor.

    WARNING

    Do not remove the motor back bell.

    WARNING

    For the DyzeXtruder GT and Pro series, only remove two opposites screws. Remove the two screws that aren't aligned with the 2 screws front the front block. Do not remove all 4 screws.

  2. Apply thermal paste

    Apply thermal paste on the back bell of the stepper motor.

  3. Install the liquid cooling block

    Use a 2.5mm allen wrench and install 4 longer screws (M03x0.5×30) for holding the liquid cooling block.

    WARNING

    Make sure to remove the tape under the liquid cooling block before installing it!

    PLEASE NOTE

    The longer M02x0.5x30 are not provided with the extruder.

  4. Install the tubing

    Install your tubes inside the loop. There is no specific input or output on the liquid cooling block. Do not forget to install the hose clamps if your loop is already completed on the other end.

  5. Crimp the tube clamps

    Use a tube crimping plier and crimp the hose clamps.
