Does Thermal Management Really Affect Production?

In any industry, there are several factors that affect efficiency and productivity, especially as more and more companies rely on technology for their production processes. One of the most consistent factors, however, is electrical thermal management. Even the most advanced technology needs an efficient way to transfer the waste heat that it gives off. In industrial applications, the effectiveness of that thermal management can greatly impact a company’s overall production. With heat exchangers, that impact is a positive one; the cleaner, more efficient, and more reliable thermal management they provide helps ensure that electrical equipment and machinery can operate continuously without overheating.  (more…)

Cooling High-Performance Tech in Advanced Medical Devices

Some of the most advanced and powerful technology is that used in modern medical devices, such as high-powered imaging equipment, surgical lasers, and even handheld diagnostic devices. Like most advanced technology, the thermal management solutions used for medical devices have to be able to keep up with the application’s power output. More power means more waste heat, and smaller devices mean less space to effectively manage that heat. Unlike other types of technology, however, cooling medical equipment comes with a few unique challenges, such as properly insulating the heat exchanger and equipment to keep them safe enough for human contact.

An Efficient Way to Meet NEMA Enclosure Standards

Modern heat exchangers have been a boon to the advancement of electrical thermal management, but their eco-friendly heat transfer methods are only a part of the reason why. In addition to saving energy and reducing maintenance needs, today’s heat exchangers also come in a variety of forms to meet all NEMA standards for electrical enclosures. For equipment and technology that operates under particularly concerning conditions, such as high levels of moisture or powder in the air, NEMA-class enclosures need adequately protected thermal management solutions. Thanks to their revolutionary methods and high-quality seals and gaskets, heat exchangers are often the most efficient and effective option. (more…)

2 Heat Exchanger Uses Besides Cooling Control Panels

Industries that rely on multiple electrical control panels are among the most obvious beneficiaries of modern heat exchanger technology. Designed specifically to transfer electrical waste heat in an efficient, eco-friendly, and reliable manner, heat exchangers first grew in popularity as alternatives to more cumbersome air conditioning units that companies relied on in the past. However, with their high-performance capabilities and adaptability to virtually any application’s needs, heat exchangers are also commonly used for more than just cooling control panels, and they excel at every application for which they’re employed.

High-Performance Thermal Management for the Molding Industry

Thermal management is important to every industry for a wide variety of reasons. Some companies simply need efficient ways to cool large manufacturing equipment or electrical control panels. Others, however, rely on thermal management as a vital part of their production process, as is the case with the molding industry. By definition, molding relies on the rapid and efficient application and removal of heat—something that heat exchanger technology is specifically adept at. Thermal pins, which are specialized heat pipes made specifically for all types of molding, bring the high-performance capabilities of heat exchangers to an industry that depends on the efficiency and precision of its thermal management solutions.

3D Printing Makes for Better Heat Exchanger Manufacturing

Part of excelling in the thermal management industry is being able to provide clients with advanced solutions quickly and with consistently high quality. For instance, centralizing the design and manufacturing process within a single facility eliminates risks of specifications being lost in translation. It also shortens the time between a products conception and manufacturing. To ensure the level of quality that clients rely on, we also employ 3D printing for rapid prototyping of tools and components, which allows us to iron out the little things before a product goes into final manufacturing.

Why Heat Pipes Make Great Heat Exchangers

A significant part of what makes heat exchanger technology more efficient than other thermal management solutions is the fact that they don’t require complicated machinery or constantly moving equipment. In addition to the advanced methods of transferring heat that they employ, their simplified designs impact their ability to minimize energy and maintenance requirements. In many cases, heat pipes make the most of these benefits, making them the ideal heat exchangers for a wide variety of applications. (more…)

Heat Exchanger Technology’s Influence on Green Energy

Modern heat exchangers were first introduced as a way to save energy and costs for thermal management, so it may be no surprise that the technology has had a notable influence on subsequent green energy efforts. With the ability to use more natural methods of transferring heat than air conditioning or air compression, heat exchangers eliminate the need for additional complex machinery to keep other equipment properly cooled. The same methods, such as conduction, convection, and phase-change cooling, have influenced how technicians and designers think of heat and energy, which has had an impact on the development of larger scale green energy efforts. (more…)

Why Heat Exchangers Almost Always Work Best

In the realms of electrical and industrial thermal management, every application is unique. Therefore, there is no single solution that generally works best. To meet such a wide variety of needs efficiently and effectively, heat exchangers offer eco-friendly thermal management solutions that address nearly every industry and application’s specifications. Heat exchangers themselves come in various forms, and collectively, the thermal management technology has become the most frequently implemented solutions for applications of all sizes. (more…)

Why Cold Plates Are Popular for Industrial Thermal Management

In addition to optimizing the science of thermal management, one of the greatest advantages that heat exchanger technology offers today’s industries is the ability to adapt to a wide variety of unique needs. For instance, many industries rely on thermal management for more than just cooling control panels, and many of those applications require the transfer or control of heat in areas much larger than an electrical enclosure. To address larger-scale thermal management needs, companies often rely on cold plate heat exchangers, which can apply the efficient and eco-friendly benefits of heat exchanger technology to an increasingly wider variety of applications.
