Even in their conventional forms, modern heat exchangers can accomplish a great deal for companies looking to streamline their electrical thermal management solutions. That’s because their ability to transfer waste heat rapidly, consistently, and in a minimally invasive manner has made heat exchangers a more cost and energy efficient solution for a wide range of applications. Today, heat exchangers come in many different forms and offer many different advantages for the companies that use them. In many cases, specialized iterations of the advanced thermal solutions can help further boost a company’s ability to streamline other thermal management processes, as well.
Reusing heat for things like wastewater treatment
One of the more impactful benefits of transferring waste heat (instead of eliminating it with chilled air) is that the heat an exchanger collects doesn’t have to be dissipated. Specialized heat exchangers can be designed to repurpose the waste heat they collect for processes that can benefit from its use. For example, wastewater treatment requires that the water be heated and held at specific temperatures throughout the treatment process. With the help of heat exchangers, companies can supply that heat at little or no additional energy costs, helping them maintain essential eco-friendly processes while still minimizing their overall costs.
Boosting yield times in processes like molding
Many different companies utilize wastewater treatment processes, and therefore, can benefit from heat exchangers that facilitate them. However, some companies also rely on highly specific thermal management processes, such as machine tool cooling in the molding industry. Cooling molds also relies on the rapid removal of heat, much like in applications that involve cooling electrical enclosures. However, with molding, heat exchangers known as thermal pins are can ensure the high-performance, isothermal cooling necessary to produce high-quality molds on a consistent basis. Thermal pins can be adapted to fit most existing molding technologies, or can be part of a brand-new setup altogether.
Enhancing application safety in hazardous locations
Thermal pins provide a highly specialized form of thermal management, but it isn’t the only iteration of heat exchangers designed for highly specific applications. For example, companies that operate in hazardous locations also rely on heat exchangers designed to handle rougher, more dangerous conditions. This includes being designed with additional high-quality safety and security measures, seals, and closed-loop heat transfer processes that help boost productivity and safety in industries such as oil and gas manufacturing, and more.
