Different Choices for Electrical Cabinet Cooling

Managing waste heat has always been a concern regarding electrical equipment. As technology has advanced over the last several decades, that concern has grown and evolved, especially as control panels and other systems continue to grow smaller. Fortunately, thermal management solutions have evolved right alongside the technology that they are meant to keep cool. Today, you have several choices for electrical cabinet cooling, as well as thermal management for systems and applications of all sizes. (more…)

Why Heat Exchangers May Be Ideal for Automated Technology

Automated technology may have seemed far-fetched not too long ago. Today, however, the technology is widely used, and its use is continuing to grow. From automatic garage door openers and driverless Google cars to automated industrial and manufacturing equipment, automation has become an important part of daily life. Like all technology, however, automated equipment requires electrical thermal management solutions that match the technology’s operational goals. In this case, that means minimizing the need for maintenance as well as significantly improving productivity. (more…)

The Benefits of Below-Ambient Cooling

For decades, ambient cooling technology has given manufacturing and other companies significant cost-saving benefits on their electrical thermal management needs. By continuously transferring electrical waste heat, ambient heat exchangers can keep the temperature inside of an electrical enclosure at just above the ambient temperature outside of it. However, there are cases when ambient temperatures are not cool enough to prevent electrical overheating, or when certain processes require the ability to lower temperatures further. In such cases, Noren has been proud to provide below-ambient cooling technology, and even more benefits for industries that rely on it. (more…)

Advantages of Ambient Heat Exchangers

For your home, office, or automobile, air conditioning may be a necessity to beat the heat and stay comfortable. Electrical equipment doesn’t operate on the same principles. Circuits and components can overheat if not properly cooled, but the heat is not from the environment; it’s the waste energy that electrical equipment emits as it operates. Instead of relying on large air conditioning units to keep electrical enclosures cool, most organizations have realized the many benefits of switching to ambient heat exchangers. The units are designed to keep temperatures inside of electrical enclosures at just above the ambient temperature outside of them—not chilling the air, but still preventing heat pockets from forming near electrical circuits.

What Are Thermal Pins?

When you think of thermal management for advanced technology, the most common applications involve heat exchangers for electrical enclosures, such as control panels. Efficiently transferring electrical waste heat is vital for any technology’s continued operation, and heat exchangers are one of the most popular methods of doing so. However, thermal management encompasses much more than preventing electrical overheating. For instance, in the molding industry, specialized heat pipes known as thermal pins are used for a variety of applications, helping companies apply the same heat transfer technology to improving productivity.

Can the Oil & Gas Industry Benefit from Heat Exchangers?

Since they first became an accepted method of electrical thermal management, heat exchangers have been a significant boon to companies in all industries. The innovative electrical cooling units provide a large number of benefits compared to more traditional air conditioning units or compressed air solutions. However, despite their many advantages, heat exchangers do have limitations, and one of those used to be an inability to work in extreme conditions, such as those faced every day by companies in the oil & gas industry. Fortunately, Noren Thermal has closed the gap with its Hazloc line of heat exchangers that are specifically certified for oil and gas, as well as other hazardous industries. (more…)

Need Better Thermal Management? Consider Heat Exchangers

Throughout history, organizations have automatically considered the high costs of electrical cooling a necessary burden. For instance, control panels and large-scale electrical enclosures only work if a cooling system is present to stop the equipment from overheating. If that means paying exorbitant energy and maintenance costs, then so be it. However, heat exchangers have changed the way organizations view thermal management, making it possible to save costs without sacrificing the ability to prevent electrical overheating. With custom-made heat exchangers from Noren Thermal, companies in all types of industries are able to enjoy better, more reliable, and more cost-effective thermal management solutions. (more…)

Electrical Control Panel Cooling with Ecofriendly Heat Exchangers

Electrical control panels are utilized for a large variety of applications and systems. Though they vary in size and purpose, all control panels share one vital characteristic—they emit electrical waste heat that must be transferred to avoid electrical overheating. Heat exchangers have long been a go-to option for control panel cooling because they offer highly efficient and greener solutions compared to traditional air conditioners. At Noren, our lineup of innovative thermal management products continues to help all industries enjoy the benefits of energy efficient, ecofriendly heat exchangers. (more…)

Efficient, Ruggedized Thermal Management for Military Use

Modern heat exchangers can be found in virtually every industry, and are utilized for an increasingly long list of applications. Noren’s specially certified heat exchangers can even benefit industries that operate in hazardous locations, such as oil and gas refineries or areas where there are large amounts of agricultural dust. Besides protection against harsh environments, however, Noren’s heat exchangers can also be ruggedized to withstand the extreme conditions and treatment that most military equipment goes through. Through ruggedization, we can help ensure that those who serve in our armed forces are equipped with efficient and reliable technology when it matters most. (more…)
