How Dangerous Is Condensation for Electrical Enclosures?

The trick to implementing effective electrical thermal management solutions isn’t just efficiency, but also the level of protection the solution provides for itself and the enclosure it’s attached to. While that protection most frequently involves ingress protection against environmental factors, including moisture, it also includes some level of defense against any moisture developing within the enclosure and coming into contact with sensitive electrical equipment. Condensation can form within the enclosure from a number of reasons, but for conventional systems like air conditioners, it occurs more frequently. With heat exchangers, companies can do more to effectively protect enclosures from internal condensation as well as other potentially hazardous factors. (more…)

More Advantages of Industrial Heat Exchangers

While they may not always be ideal for every single thermal management application, heat exchangers have provided far more advantages to nearly every industry than most other solutions. That’s because the variety of benefits they provide have helped most companies streamline their electrical and other thermal management processes enough to impact their entire organizations. Today, we take a look at a few of those advantages and why they’ve made heat exchangers a staple of most companies’ technology. (more…)

Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Benefits from Heat Exchangers

Like many other manufacturing processes, pharmaceutical manufacturing involves several different thermal management challenges. The most common is the need to efficiently and reliably keep advanced technology and equipment properly cooled so they don’t overheat and malfunction or break down altogether. However, the unique nature of pharmaceutical products also comes with several unique challenges for ensuring consumers consistently receive high-quality products. For instance, precise thermal management is necessary for the creation of pharmaceutical products, as well as the proper storing, packaging, and shipping of these products, and in most cases, heat exchangers provide the high-performance solutions that modern companies need.

What’s the Best Way to Cool Automated Technology?

As more companies implement various forms of automated technology into their operations, they’ve enjoyed a number of different benefits, including higher productivity and more time for employees to be more innovative. It’s also presented quite a few challenges, especially in the realm of electrical thermal management. For example, traditional methods like air conditioning units and air compressors often can’t keep up with the high-performance demands of the technology. Also, automation is rendered ineffective if the equipment’s thermal management solutions have to be constantly maintained and repaired. To address these concerns, many forms of automated technology come equipped with innovative heat exchangers that offer high-performance cooling on a consistent basis with little or no need for attention.

Good Reasons to Consider Below-Ambient Heat Exchangers

When heat exchangers were first introduced as an industrial solution for cooling electrical enclosures and control panels, their most notable benefit was their ability to prevent electrical overheating by simply redirecting heat. As long as a system’s maximum operating temperature was lower than the ambient temperature outside of the enclosure, transferring waste heat away from sensitive components was enough to keep the system functioning at optimum capacity. However, applications where the ambient temperature is too high or the level of waste heat emitted is too overwhelming for ambient cooling need a more powerful solution. With below-ambient heat exchangers, such applications can still benefit from the more affordable, efficient, and reliable thermal management processes that heat exchangers provide. (more…)

The Benefits of Heat Exchangers for Agriculture

The more productive a company can be, the more profitable it can be and the faster it can grow its operations. In agriculture, higher productivity also benefits consumers across the country by ensuring that grocery stores and kitchens are stocked with healthy, fresh foods and beverages. For that reason, the agriculture industry has taken great steps to make use of the latest technology to boost productivity, ensure a consistently high level of quality, and ensure that consumers across the country can rely on the industry to provide what they need at affordable prices.

How Heat Exchangers Help Bring Advanced Technology to Medicine

While the medical field isn’t always the first to widely adopt new technology, there’s been a surge of technological innovation lately spurred by a need to improve patient care and dramatically reduce health care costs. Like most other technologies, advanced thermal management solutions (often in the form of heat exchangers) are vital for advanced medical devices to work properly. Those solutions not only have to work consistently and efficiently, but also remain safe enough for equipment that is often used in very close proximity to patients. (more…)

High Heat Transfer for Higher Quality Molds

In all industries, thermal management is important for ensuring that vital equipment and technology operates properly. The right thermal management solution can consistently prevent electrical overheating so operations can continue uninterrupted. In some industries, though, thermal management is more directly essential to operations, such as the molding industry. Besides the waste heat that equipment emits, molding also requires the rapid removal of heat to ensure that molds cool quickly and uniformly. Much like other thermal management concerns, heat exchanger technology can also offer optimal solutions for this heat removal, particularly in the form of innovative thermal pins. (more…)

How to Properly Cool a NEMA-Certified Enclosure

The science of cooling advanced technology and electrical enclosures isn’t the only thing that’s changed over the years. So have the standards set by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) for keeping the enclosures themselves safe, protected, and properly cooled. As industries have spread into increasingly more volatile areas of the world, maintaining NEMA safety and operation standards has become more and more important. That means companies have relied more and more on innovative, NEMA-class heat exchangers to cool the equipment and technology that helps them expand their operations. (more…)

Heat Exchangers’ Impact on the Consumer Experience

If you list out the benefits that consumer product manufacturers have enjoyed thanks to advanced heat exchangers, a more streamlined manufacturing process would top the first few slots. However, an equally important (though sometimes, less obvious) impact of heat exchanger technology is the myriad of benefits that consumers have enjoyed. Particularly, in the quality of the products that drive their everyday lives and their overall experience with the companies they deal with. Those streamlined manufacturing processes not only ensure that consumers receive their products quickly, but that those goods are of a consistently high quality every time. (more…)
