The main reason for keeping electrical control panels enclosed is to stop environmental influences like dust and condensation from damaging their sensitive components. However, because they’re enclosed, control panels also need to be properly cooled to prevent heat from accumulating too close to those components. In some cases, especially when air conditioning is used to control waste heat, being enclosed may not always be enough to protect electrical components from condensation or the damage that it could cause. With Noren’s heat exchangers and variety of custom thermal management solutions, we can help all of our clients keep their control panels cool while avoiding the potential for condensation.
Another Reason to Replace Air Conditioning
Though air conditioning was once the only viable way to cool electrical equipment, other solutions, including various forms of heat exchangers, soon became more viable alternatives. Some of the biggest benefits of replacing air conditioning with heat exchangers include substantially reduced energy consumption, which equates to much lower operating costs, and a reduced need for overall maintenance. Because heat exchangers are designed to keep electrical panels tightly sealed, they also offer improved protection against environmental contamination.
Compared to air conditioners, heat exchangers also operate using much less complicated equipment. Rather than having to chill the air inside of an enclosure, the cooling units simply transfer heat away from sensitive electrical equipment to prevent overheating. This means that heat exchangers do not risk creating condensation within the enclosure as air conditioners do.
Keeping Control Panels Cool without Condensation
When cooling electrical control panels and other enclosures, avoiding condensation is just one of many important benefits of modern heat exchangers.
