Thermal management is the type of thing that every piece of technology needs, and therefore, any company that relies on it also needs. This is why air conditioners were tolerated for so long; they were the only solution to providing the reliable, effective thermal management that large equipment, especially in manufacturing, required. Otherwise, the equipment would overheat, become damaged, and need to be replaced. Now, however, more companies in every type of industry benefit from switching to heat exchangers rather than air conditioners for their electrical thermal management needs. Besides being more cost-effective, they also offer a variety of other benefits that can ripple through the rest of a company’s operations.
Drawbacks of Traditional Air Conditioning
The biggest benefit of heat exchangers is that they can handle most of the high-performance applications that used to require the chilling powers of air conditioning. Before, companies had to shoulder the burden of excessive energy costs, more-than-usual maintenance needs, constant repairs, frequent replacements, and the lost revenue associated with the downtime that occurs when equipment breaks down. However, most applications can operate at temperatures that are higher than the ambient temperature outside of their enclosures, or can be effectively cooled by the fluid inside of a below-ambient heat exchanger.
What Industries Gain from Switching to Heat Exchangers
Because they’re equally effective, heat exchangers have eliminated reliance on more cumbersome thermal management techniques for most industries, including those that operate in hazardous locations. More companies continue to adopt them because of that effectiveness, and because they can also be used for thermal management applications outside of electrical cooling. The more companies find innovative uses for advanced thermal management, the more they’ll continue to benefit from heat exchangers.
