Below-Ambient Cooling for Control Panels without Air Conditioners

Even on a relatively hot day, most climates are still cool enough for modern electrical equipment to operate efficiently (assuming its circuits weren’t sealed off in small enclosures). For this reason, many industries rely on ambient heat exchangers for more efficient thermal management rather than air conditioners that dramatically lower temperatures inside of electrical enclosures. However, that isn’t always the case; some climates are much hotter than others, and some systems are so powerful that they emit too much waste heat for an ambient cooling system to be effective. Therefore, Noren also provides high-quality systems that provide below-ambient cooling for control panels and other enclosures without having to rely on air conditioning technology.

Simplifying Below-Ambient Cooling

The popularity of heat exchangers stems largely from their ability to simplify heat transfer in electrical systems of all types. Given their ability to continuously operate with minimal maintenance, their smaller and more versatile designs, and the more efficient way they transfer heat, heat exchangers have been a vast improvement, especially for technicians who aim to create increasingly more powerful designs. Yet, certain types of locations, like hazardous and extremely hot ones, require thermal management solutions that can cool enclosures to temperatures that are below the ambient.

Much like ambient heat exchangers, below-ambient solutions rely on natural forces, like phase-change cooling, to transfer heat, instead of forcefully cooling enclosures with air conditioning equipment. For industries like oil and gas production, wastewater treatment, military and aerospace technology, and more, this ability means significant benefits even under rough conditions.

Benefit from Below-Ambient Heat Exchangers

In applications where ambient temperatures are too high for electrical equipment to operate, Noren’s high-quality below-ambient heat exchangers are often relied upon.
