How to Use Heat Exchangers Beyond Enclosure Cooling

For the companies that have implemented them, modern heat exchangers have become an essential component of their operations. The custom, eco-friendly, and highly efficient thermal management solutions have proven to keep control panels and other enclosures of all sizes properly cooled without requiring nearly as much energy or maintenance as more conventional solutions. This has helped companies not only reduce overall operating costs, but also free up employee time and improve and the productivity of their equipment. However, heat exchanger technology has also been a benefit to several processes beyond enclosure cooling, including molding, food and beverage processing, wastewater treatment, and much more.

Machine tool cooling for molding

Machine tool cooling is vital to the molding process and involves rapidly removing heat from molds in an even and uniform manner. The rate at which machine tool cooling can be achieved, and the quality of the heat removal process, largely dictates the length of cycle times and the quality of the finished molds themselves. Specialized, isothermal heat exchangers known as thermal pins help companies significantly shorten cycle times and improve yields thanks to their high-performance heat transfer capabilities. Custom thermal pins can even be fitted to existing molding equipment so companies don’t need to completely revamp all of their technology.

Temperature control for food & beverages

Transferring heat is important for more than just keeping enclosures cool and removing heat from superheated molds. It’s also vital for applications that involve consistent and precise temperature control. For example, in the food and beverage industry, processes like pasteurization and storage require advanced thermal management solutions that can operate continuously and reliably. Custom-designed heat exchangers allow companies to streamline this process and eliminate their reliance on costly, cumbersome cooling apparatuses. Other precise manufacturing applications, such as pharmaceutical production and packaging, have also benefited from the significant advantages that heat exchangers provide.

Heat application for wastewater treatment

Wastewater treatment has become an essential process within several different industries, and is vital to a company’s ability to control its environmental footprint. The process of treating wastewater involves introducing beneficial microbes that can neutralize and eliminate harmful substances. To thrive, these microbes rely on the water being held at consistent, highly specific temperatures, which heat exchangers can help companies achieve at minimal cost and with minimal energy. As an environmentally friendly initiative, the ability to use eco-friendly heat exchangers for the process helps significantly streamline wastewater treatment in most industries.
