While they may not always be ideal for every single thermal management application, heat exchangers have provided far more advantages to nearly every industry than most other solutions. That’s because the variety of benefits they provide have helped most companies streamline their electrical and other thermal management processes enough to impact their entire organizations. Today, we take a look at a few of those advantages and why they’ve made heat exchangers a staple of most companies’ technology.
Companies Use Less Energy
Reducing energy consumption is beneficial for several different reasons. For one, energy costs are often one of the largest expenditures in a company’s overhead and implementing more energy-efficient solutions is the best to lower them. For example, heat exchangers use minimal energy for their heat transfer processes (i.e., phase-change cooling, conduction, and natural/forced convection). Compared to traditional air conditioning and other electrical cooling solutions, the difference in energy usage is profound and grows larger the longer the equipment is in use.
Employees Are More Productive
Besides energy investments, heat exchangers also help companies better optimize their employees’ time. To maintain other thermal management solutions, employees often have to stop and repair equipment or schedule frequent downtimes for routine maintenance. This eats up time that employees could be spending on revenue-generating or customer-facing tasks, which have a more positive impact on the company’s bottom line.
Operations Are More Eco-Friendly
In addition to energy usage, eco-friendliness is another increasingly more significant concern for modern businesses. Therefore, another substantial advantage of modern heat exchangers is the fact that they don’t generate any pollution or utilize harmful chemicals. For example, the fluid inside of a heat exchanger is most often water, and because it’s circulated through the tightly sealed unit, the fluid doesn’t leak and does not need to be refilled.
