Do Heat Exchangers Really Save Energy?

With an increasingly urgent need for industries to find innovative ways to conserve energy, thermal management may not be the first field that comes to mind. However, for many facilities, especially those that rely on air conditioning or air compression to cool their electrical enclosures, thermal management may be one of the biggest areas in which the company expends energy. The good news is that there are several alternatives to traditional air conditioning equipment for keeping electrical waste heat at bay. For instance, heat exchangers can often outperform air conditioning equipment using significantly less energy, and taking up notably less space.  

An Alternative Method of Cooling Electrical Cabinets

Thermal management is vital for any electrical system, which makes the expenses related to it necessary. Yet, the exorbitant costs that can quickly add up when using air conditioners are not unavoidable. The point of cooling electrical enclosures is to prevent electrical waste heat from causing irreparable damage. With innovative heat exchanger technology, this can be achieved by simply transferring the waste heat using natural or forced convection, or through the science of harnessing phase-change energy.

Regardless of the type of heat exchanger used, the solution will not require the complex setup of equipment that air conditioners require. Also, because heat exchangers do not chill the air, there is no risk of condensation forming around the unit and potentially damaging or eroding electrical circuits. This helps reduce the overall need for maintenance, and the simplicity of their design extends the shelf-life of heat exchangers far beyond that of air conditioners.
