What Thermal Management Means for Wastewater Treatment

Treating wastewater effectively is an important part of many manufacturing processes. In municipal applications, it’s vital to sanitizing sewage to prevent the release of harmful substances into the environment.  The same is true for industrial wastewater treatment, where different but equally or more harmful substances must be removed. In addition to cooling the technology responsible for most of wastewater treatment, thermal management is also an essential component to the process. Wastewater must be heated and treated with certain microorganisms that require specific temperatures to flourish. Heat exchangers can accomplish this more reliably while significantly reducing the need for natural gas for heating, and saving energy overall with more efficient thermal management methods.

Efficiency, Safety, and Energy Recovery

Heat exchangers are known for providing effective thermal management for NEMA-certified electrical enclosures and control panels. For instance, unlike air conditioners or air compressors, many heat exchangers transfer heat through phase-change cooling. As the fluid inside of the heat exchanger absorbs waste heat, it evaporates while maintaining a consistent temperature. The fluid is conveyed to cooler area of the heat exchanger, where it can condense back into liquid as it releases the thermal energy. In wastewater treatment, heat exchangers may be applied to transfer waste heat from electrical equipment to water treatment processes. Instead of needing ample natural gas to provide the consistent heating necessary, heat exchangers can combine more efficient electrical thermal management with ecofriendly energy recovery methods for better wastewater treatment.
