Efficient Thermal Management in Hazardous Locations

Industries that rely on manufacturing have benefited for decades by choosing heat exchanger technology to effectively manage waste heat from electrical enclosures. However, Noren’s innovative technology has helped organizations in far more industries enjoy the same benefits, and that technology was the first to be certified for use in hazardous locations. With this certification, more companies are able to take advantage of more efficient and less costly thermal management solutions, even in areas where heat exchangers weren’t always viable. (more…)

Efficient Cabinet Cooling for NEMA Enclosures

The level of environmental contamination that electrical enclosures are exposed to can significantly affect their safety and efficiency.  To help regulate electrical enclosures and their cooling units, the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has created sets of standards for enclosures of all types and sizes. For NEMA-certified electrical cabinets, heat exchanger units not only perform well, but also keep dust, moisture, and other harmful contaminants out of the electrical cabinet according to the system’s safety specifications.

The Many Benefits of Heat Exchanger Technology

As heat exchangers continue to evolve, more industries are employing them for an increasingly diverse range of applications. While air-to-air and air-to-water heat exchangers have long been popular solutions for cooling large electrical enclosures, their benefits are even more pronounced as technology grows smaller and more efficient. With Noren’s experience in customizing solutions for virtually all applications, organizations in all industries can benefit from using heat exchangers for more effective and efficient thermal management.

Why Food Processing Relies on Heat Exchangers

Heat exchangers are used in a wide variety of manufacturing applications, from cooling electrical panels that power automated equipment to providing precise temperature control for food and beverage production, and more. Because heat exchangers can be customized in every detail—including size, shape, and cooling method—they can provide highly efficient solutions that offer significant energy and cost-saving benefits. In fact, food and beverage manufacturers increasingly rely on heat exchangers to keep overhead costs manageable while helping to reduce energy consumption and lower their environmental impacts.

How Do Heat Exchangers Help the Medical Industry?

The medical field is one of the most technologically advanced industries, and that technology’s performance is particularly important given their roles in caring for patients. Heat exchangers are an important part of maintaining technology’s performance, from small diagnostic devices to the servers that control a hospital’s systems. Efficiently controlling the waste heat that these systems emit is essential to ensuring that medical devices operate as well as intended, without overheating or requiring excessive maintenance and cleaning.   (more…)

What’s the Best Choice for Electrical Panel Cooling?

For industries that rely on high-performing computers and automated technology for their operations, efficient thermal management solutions are a necessity. The good news is that there are a multitude of cabinet cooling options available these days; however, not all thermal management solutions are equal. If a cabinet cooling system doesn’t meet the specific requirements of the electrical system, then overheating is more likely to occur, as well as significant maintenance costs and lost revenue due to downtime. Choosing the best electrical panel cooling units not only helps eliminate such exorbitant costs, but also helps improve operations by promoting higher efficiency and lower carbon output. (more…)

Electrical Cooling for a Greener Tomorrow

Despite the uncertainty caused by the United States withdrawing from the Paris climate change accord, business leaders throughout the country and the world continue to push for ways to clean up the global economy. At Noren, that goal has been a driving concept behind our thermal management products and components for over 40 years. As the world grows increasingly more reliant on green technology and energy production, eco-friendly cooling solutions are becoming equally more important. (more…)

Custom Solutions Help You Avoid Thermal Management Problems

Too often, projects that have taken years to plan are hindered by equipment that doesn’t perform as well as intended. Maintenance and malfunction issues can occur for countless reasons, but when those complications arise from overheating electrical equipment, they typically could have been avoided if proper thermal management had been a part of the design process. At Noren Thermal, comprehensive design and analysis is a cornerstone of the high-performance thermal management solutions we create. Every product and its components are designed to minimize energy costs while maximizing performance, and each solution can be customized to meet the requirements of a given application. (more…)

The Difference Between Ambient and Below-Ambient Heat Exchangers

When industries began relying on heat exchangers for their electrical thermal management needs, they quickly benefited from the cleaner and more efficient cooling technology. Yet, there are still instances when the surrounding air is too hot for ambient heat exchangers to work, and previously, that meant companies still had to rely on more expensive air conditioning equipment. With Noren’s below-ambient heat exchangers, companies that operate in hot climates can still take advantage of the green energy benefits that come with heat exchanger technology. (more…)

Using Heat Exchangers in Wastewater Treatment Plants

Being certified to operate in hazardous locations often makes Noren’s heat exchangers the optimal solution for vital industries, such as wastewater treatment. When wastewater is treated, certain gases are released in the air that could potentially contaminate exposed electrical components and cooling units. Because heat exchangers offer a high degree of ingress protection, they can simultaneously keep wastewater treatment systems cool while preventing contamination from reaching sensitive circuits.
