Over the course of a few decades, heat exchangers changed the face of electrical thermal management for most industries. What was once a burden that companies had to strategize around became an area of innovation where companies could now streamline their operations and save significantly in the process. Today, heat exchangers continue advancing the realm of thermal management in several ways, and as technology continues to evolve, their customizability plays an increasingly more important role. For many applications, the ability to customize thermal management solutions is one of the greatest advantages of modern heat exchangers.
Optimal solutions at minimal costs
There’s intrinsic value in transferring electrical waste heat compared to using HVAC solutions to cool it down. For example, one of the most notable advantages is the reduced need for energy to continuously operate heat exchangers. It takes significant amounts of energy to keep solutions such as air conditioners running all day, though it’s a necessary expenditure to prevent electrical overheating. Heat exchangers, however, make the most of more natural thermal management methods, such as convection, conduction, and phase-change cooling. These methods involve collecting and transferring heat in a continuous loop, which doesn’t require the use of chilled air or complicated, energy-draining machinery.
Meeting every parameter successfully
Having a more efficient way of preventing electrical overheating has been a substantial benefit to companies over the years, and it’s paved the way for most industries to further streamline operations with more advanced technologies. These technologies often require more advanced thermal management solutions that can meet a wide range of unique parameters, from increased heat transfer capabilities to unique physical designs and the ability to operate nearly autonomously. Transferring heat is not only more energy and cost effective, but also more versatile than traditional solutions, allowing for customizable solutions that meet every unique parameter of the most innovative designs.
Advanced customization and manufacturing
Creating custom thermal solutions is even more beneficial to companies that implement them thanks to highly advanced analysis, design, and manufacturing capabilities. Modern heat exchangers come in a variety of designs, including custom-machined cold pipes and specially designed heat pipes. They can provide ambient or below-ambient cooling, depending on an application’s specific requirements, and can be designed especially for use in hazardous locations and particularly rough applications. Techniques such as collaborative analysis and design between engineers and thermal management experts, rapid 3D prototyping, and more help ensure that custom thermal solutions meet and exceed expectations every time.
