Modern heat exchangers have been a boon to the advancement of electrical thermal management, but their eco-friendly heat transfer methods are only a part of the reason why. In addition to saving energy and reducing maintenance needs, today’s heat exchangers also come in a variety of forms to meet all NEMA standards for electrical enclosures. For equipment and technology that operates under particularly concerning conditions, such as high levels of moisture or powder in the air, NEMA-class enclosures need adequately protected thermal management solutions. Thanks to their revolutionary methods and high-quality seals and gaskets, heat exchangers are often the most efficient and effective option.
The Safety of Modern Heat Exchangers
Heat exchangers aren’t just designed to use energy more efficiently, but also to improve productivity and the performance of advanced technology. Besides efficiently managing waste heat, that also means minimizing or eliminating the risks of contamination within an electrical enclosure. To that end, many types of heat exchangers are made to operate as closed loop systems. They circulate cooling fluid away from electrical components to release the heat that the fluid has absorbed without ever leaving the heat exchanger unit. Others are designed to transfer the heat to another system to be utilized for other purposes, but are protected with high-performance neoprene seals and gaskets to ensure the system’s integrity.
Thermal Management for All Enclosures
The other benefit of modern heat exchangers is that they can handle virtually any system’s specifications, including maximum operating temperature and specific NEMA level of protection. Some types of heat exchangers are even specifically designed and certified to operate in especially hazardous locations, such as oil and gas operations. This makes heat exchangers beneficial even for enclosures with the highest level of NEMA-certified protection.
