There are many different electrical cooling processes that have benefited from the efficiency and reliability of modern heat exchangers. From cooling electrical enclosures and control panels to creating opportunities for greener practices on a wider scale, heat exchangers have provided optimal thermal management to a wide range of applications. More recently, those applications include vital processes such as wastewater treatment, which is required for companies in several different types of industries. The custom thermal solutions made possible with heat exchangers have also made the process of applying heat to treat wastewater much more streamlined and eco-friendlier.
Why wastewater treatment is a growing need
The potential threats posed by the wastewater created during a company’s operations depends on the nature of that company’s business. For example, manufacturing companies can produce hazardous toxins and other pollutants that cause irreparable harm to the environment and nearby communities. In pharmaceutical manufacturing, the substances carried within the wastewater are biologically active, which may cause permanent changes to the ecology of the nearby environment. With increasing focus on implementing greener, eco-friendlier manufacturing processes, these and many other industries rely on in-house wastewater treatment processes to successfully control their environmental footprints.
Thermal management considerations
Most industries have already implemented heat exchangers for a variety of electrical cooling processes – particularly, cooling electrical enclosures within large facilities. The ability to consistently transfer and dissipate large amounts of waste heat with minimal energy requirements have made them powerhouses of electrical thermal management. However, for processes such as wastewater treatment, custom thermal solutions can also be designed to transfer collected waste heat where it can be repurposed. Utilizing the right heat exchanger designs, companies can dramatically reduce their reliance on external heat sources (and the additional costs that come with them) without sacrificing the efficiency of their wastewater treatment or other manufacturing processes.
The value in eco-friendly heat transfer methods
Because heat exchangers already use eco-friendly processes to transfer electrical waste heat, their use in common electrical cooling applications has already helped companies lower their footprints. This also makes them a natural fit for other green initiatives, from wastewater treatment to harnessing alternative sources of energy (such as solar and wind). More companies across a growing span of industries are benefiting in countless ways from the value of implementing eco-friendly, customized heat exchangers.
