Technology is an essential part of production and manufacturing, and one of its greatest benefits is the ability to operate in areas that were previously inaccessible. For instance, automated technology has helped the oil and gas industry expand to produce energy from more obscure sources. It has also helped companies build facilities and operate machinery in hazardous locations. As pioneers in the thermal management industry, Noren Thermal was the first heat exchanger manufacturer to produce heat exchangers that are certified for technology deployed in hazardous locations. With custom heat exchangers, industries that venture into more dangerous territories can now rest assured that their technology is properly cooled without requiring excessive amounts of energy.
Why Certain Locations Are Hazardous
Aside from overheating due to inadequate thermal management, some of the biggest threats to electrical equipment and control panels involve contamination. Under typical circumstances, that can include dirt and dust in the atmosphere that could coat electrical components, or moisture that can erode or damage circuits. In hazardous locations, contamination can have far more serious connotations. Depending on the environment, it may mean combustible gases or other materials entering an electrical cabinet, which could have explosive consequences.
At Noren, all of our heat exchangers are created using high-quality neoprene seals and gaskets, and most operate within a closed-loop system that ensures the integrity of the cooling unit and the control panel that it is attached to. In addition to keeping energy costs down, their design often makes Noren’s cooling units the ideal solution for technology that must operate in hazardous locations.
