Noren’s innovative products are designed to meet the most demanding thermal management needs for a variety of industries. Consequently, some of the most demanding applications are based in equally demanding environments, such as for the oil and gas industry. In fact, Noren’s Hazloc line is the only line of heat exchangers that is certified for use in hazardous locations as per UL/cUL as well as ATEX and IECEx standards.
Unique Considerations for Hazardous Locations
Lower energy costs.
Maintaining constant, safe electrical cooling in the oil and gas industry can prove expensive, especially when operating in remote areas. Compared to air conditioning and air compressing equipment, one of the greatest benefits of Noren’s heat exchangers is the fact that they can operate continuously without drawing on excessive amounts of power.
Less frequent maintenance needs.
Heat exchangers utilize a variety of techniques to keep electrical cabinets cooled to just above or just below ambient temperatures. For most models, there are few moving parts and no complicated compression equipment; therefore, maintaining the units requires significantly less work.
Reduced risks of hazardous contamination.
Heat exchangers offer high degrees of ingress protection to prevent contaminants in the atmosphere from entering electrical enclosures and causing irreparable damage. In the oil and gas industry, that is especially important given the fact that contaminants may include highly corrosive or combustible elements.
Heat Exchangers for Hazardous Industries
Because of their low operating costs and custom, closed-loop designs, Noren’s heat exchangers are often optimal for cooling electrical equipment in hazardous locations, such as in oil and gas manufacturing.
