Why Are Heat Exchangers Preferable for Hazardous Locations?

Heat exchangers haven’t always been a viable solution for companies that operate in hazardous locations. In fact, it wasn’t until recently (in 2015) that Noren Thermal became the first manufacturer to receive the appropriate certification for their heat exchangers to operate in hazardous conditions. Since then, however, industries that operate mainly in tough conditions and hazardous or extreme locations have benefited greatly from the introduction of heat exchangers to their facilities.

Safer, Improved Thermal Management

For every industry, the quest for higher efficiency and productivity has led to a boom in heat exchanger adoption. For decades, though, companies that operate in hazardous locations, particularly those in the oil and gas industry, had to forego the benefits of heat exchangers due to a lack of proper certification.  Today, Noren’s Hazloc coolers have changed the game by providing industries with durable, tested and approved heat exchanger technology made specifically to operate safely in hazardous locations.

Heat Exchangers for Hazardous Locations

Like all heat exchangers, those that are UL/cUL certified ensure that there is no interaction between the air and fluid within the cooling unit and the electrical enclosure. This reduces the risks of hazardous, combustible materials entering the enclosure and causing potentially serious damage or harm. This also allows companies to provide safer environments for their employees, especially by reducing the amount of maintenance and repair needed for equipment that relies on heat exchangers.
