Heat Pipes as an Efficient Electrical Cooling System

These days, there are many different types of electrical cooling systems for companies and technology designers to choose from. The most frequently implemented solutions tend to be advanced heat exchangers that are able to handle varying levels of thermal management needs with optimal efficiency. For example, heat pipe heat exchangers, which are one of the most common types of heat exchangers, can be designed to keep large-scale equipment as efficiently cooled as smaller, high-performance electronics, and much more. In many cases, heat pipes can be the most beneficial choice in electrical cooling systems, and increasingly more technologies are benefiting from their high-performance cooling capabilities. (more…)

Can Transferring Heat Really Make Cooling More Efficient?

Before heat exchangers and their ability to transfer waste heat revolutionized electrical cooling, the most common thermal management solutions followed the same basic principles. Using chilled air that’s generated through HVAC or air compression methods, these solutions forced the temperatures within electrical enclosures to remain well below maximum operating temperatures. As technology and electrical cooling have advanced, however, the trend hasn’t been to make chilling and circulating air in an enclosure more efficient. Instead, electrical thermal management has taken leaps forward by relying on more natural heat transfer methods that don’t rely on chilled air at all. (more…)

The Relationship Between Heat Exchangers and Manufacturing

Since they first became a popular and well-known thermal management solution, heat exchangers have had an intricate relationship with the field of manufacturing. On one hand, their ability to streamline electrical cooling and other thermal management concerns have made them essential to modern manufacturing companies’ efficiency and productivity. On the other hand, as manufacturing has steadily advanced, heat exchanger manufacturers have gained important advantages in their ability to create and customize thermal solutions for increasingly more companies. In this relationship, heat exchangers and advanced manufacturing techniques have both evolved off of the advancements of the other. (more…)

Reaching Below-Ambient Cooling without Chilled Air

Heat exchangers have become a significant part of thermal management processes across multiple different industries. That includes everything from electrical cooling, or the process of removing waste heat from inside of an electrical enclosure, to more challenging thermal processes such as wastewater treatment, and more. In some cases, the reason heat exchangers have become so popular is because they make ultimate use of ambient cooling techniques. However, in applications where ambient cooling isn’t enough, heat exchangers are becoming just as popular for their below-ambient thermal management capabilities. (more…)

Liquid Cooling Made Easy – Heat Exchangers for Computers

For large-scale manufacturing technologies and equipment, heat exchangers have long been highly recognizable as an efficient and effective thermal management solution. Keeping such equipment properly cooled once took more cumbersome solutions, such as air conditioners. However, the significant energy and cost-savings heat exchangers provide proved invaluable to streamlining companies’ electrical cooling processes. Today, the same principles that made heat exchangers so valuable to larger equipment also make them highly beneficial for smaller, more powerful, and more advanced computing technologies. (more…)

How Companies Benefit from Custom Thermal Solutions

Among the many different advantages that come with modern heat exchangers, including lower electrical cooling costs and more efficient operations, one of the greatest benefits is the fact that heat exchangers are highly adaptable. This is largely due to their natural, highly efficient methods of transferring waste heat, which differ greatly from traditional methods that involve the use of chilled air. Transferring waste heat is a simpler and more efficient way of keeping electrical enclosures cooled, and also makes it easier to customize thermal solutions to meet companies’ unique thermal management needs.

How Heat Exchangers Changed the Meaning of Ambient Cooling

Of the many different electrical cooling methods that have been developed over the last several decades, some of the most effective ones are also the most natural and efficient, as well. For example, modern heat exchangers, which are often the preferable electrical cooling solution, use methods such as natural/forced convection and phase-change cooling to rapidly transfer electrical waste heat. In many cases, the ambient cooling effect that this creates is more than enough to keep even advanced applications running smoothly without the risks of overheating. (more…)

What Heat Exchangers Have Done for Modern Computing

Today, computers control and are part of so many different aspects of modern life that we rarely consider just how quickly they’ve advanced over the years. However, in only a few decades, computers have gone from large, unwieldy systems that take up entire rooms to tiny, superpowered devices that can be carried around in a purse or pocket. While there are many different advancements that have contributed to the modern state of computing, streamlined electrical cooling systems (such as heat exchangers) have been among the more significant ones.

Plastic Molding – When Transferring Heat Matters Most

The concept of thermal management impacts every industry to a certain degree. Most commonly, it’s applied to the process of keeping electrical enclosures cool by eliminating the waste heat that electrical components emit. All companies today utilize technology for a wide range of processes, and that makes electrical cooling one of the most significant thermal management concerns. However, in the plastic molding industry, thermal management has a much more significant implication. Molds must be cooled rapidly and evenly to be viable, and the efficiency with which companies can complete this process plays an important role in their ability to operate. (more…)

Specific Ways Heat Exchangers Streamline Thermal Management

Heat exchangers have a reputation for making electrical thermal management a more efficient process, and they consistently live up to that reputation the more companies utilize them. Even as technology and its thermal management demands have evolved, heat exchangers have continued to provide high-quality cooling and thermal management solutions to match them. The advantages that stem from heat exchangers have helped companies that utilize advanced technologies make the most of their investments. In nearly every industry, heat exchangers help streamline thermal management in increasingly more significant ways. (more…)
