Protecting Outdoor Electrical Enclosures During the Winter

The good news about cold weather is that it can make electrical cabinet cooling easier, especially for ambient heat exchangers. However, the cold weather, strong winds, and extra moisture can also lead to increased concerns about the integrity of electrical enclosures that operate outdoors. For instance, overheating may be slightly less of a concern, but if an enclosure and its cooling system aren’t properly sealed against the elements, then things like contamination and condensation can become a significantly greater threat. At Noren Thermal, we offer a wide range of thermal management solutions that are certified to operate in environments that pose unique threats, including conditions that are most common during the winter months.

Certified Heat Exchangers for Outdoor Enclosures

Keeping electrical enclosures safely protected from contaminants is vital to their continued operation as well as the safety of the employees who maintain the equipment. Because of this, control cabinets and other enclosures that operate outside must often meet certain criteria set by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA). The specific requirements depend on the unique conditions of each application, such as the risk of moisture entering the cabinet and damaging or destroying electrical components.

At Noren, we’ve spend decades innovating and perfecting efficient thermal management, specifically with advanced heat exchanger technology. In fact, Noren’s heat exchangers were the first to be certified for use in particularly hazardous locations. In addition to streamlining thermal management processes for cleaner and more efficient electrical cooling, Noren’s heat exchangers are also designed to provide maximum protection for outdoor enclosures in extreme environments.
