As with every aspect of technology, thermal management solutions should be carefully selected and precisely designed with optimal function in mind. For most industries, controlling waste heat in electrical control panels requires little more than transferring the heat to keep the temperature inside of the enclosures at just above the ambient temperature outside of them. Nevertheless, heat exchangers themselves come in a variety of designs, each crafted according to specific operational requirements. When selecting the right cooling option for your control panels, two important questions should be at the forefront of the process—how much energy can you save, and how much maintenance will the units need?
Using Less Energy
One of the most significant considerations when choosing the right technology is gauging how much energy the solutions will require on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. For many industries, control panels operate automated technology that runs 24/7, and heat exchangers are the most efficient way to keep continuous thermal management costs reasonable. Without excessive equipment to power, heat exchangers utilize forces such as convection and phase-change technology to transfer heat continuously.
Maintaining Equipment Less Often
In addition to using less energy, heat exchangers also utilize fewer moving external parts, which means there is a reduced need for routine cleaning and maintenance. For industries where control panels are located in hard-to-reach places, this reduced need can translate into significant cost savings and more time for employees to focus on more productive procedures.
