What Impact Do Heat Exchangers Have on Manufacturing?

When it comes to manufacturing, technology plays more roles than are immediately obvious. For example, besides the most noticeable manufacturing equipment, much of which involves advanced and/or automated technologies, companies also benefit from more powerful computer processing and analytics, innovative packaging and shipping methods, technologically driven waste control, and much more. Accordingly, the advantages of cooling that technology more efficiently and reliably with a variety of heat exchangers can often be more beneficial than what’s immediately obvious. For every application that heat exchangers help make more efficient, companies can benefit in many different ways.

The advantages of streamlined electrical cooling

Manufacturing companies can always benefit from lowering costs and boosting productivity, preferably at the same time. Until heat exchangers became popular, options for electrical thermal management were limited. Therefore, there was little room for either lowering expenses or boosting the efficiency of electrical cooling processes. With heat exchangers, however, companies can take advantage of rapid, high-performance electrical cooling at significantly lower costs, thanks to a reduced need for energy, little or no need for routine repairs, and their ability to fit most modern applications.

More time for employees to be productive

One of the greatest benefits of heat exchangers is that they use less energy than air conditioners and other traditional solutions. In addition to that, however, heat exchangers are designed to be simpler, with fewer additional parts and complicated machinery than air conditioners. This reduces the need for heat exchangers to be maintained or repaired, which means employees have more time to dedicate to revenue-generating tasks. Their innovative way of transferring electrical waste heat – using a cooling fluid to absorb and transfer the heat – has also led to other uses for heat exchangers, and additional benefits for companies that implement them.

Other processes heat exchangers make more efficient

The most common uses for heat exchangers in the manufacturing field is to cool electrical enclosures and control panels. Yet, these days, companies also use them for other thermal management processes, including wastewater treatment and food & beverage production. Using heat exchangers to manage, transfer, and apply heat where necessary goes a long way in helping companies further reduce their overall costs and boost productivity across the company.
