Over the last several decades, the goals of major industries haven’t changed much. Companies have always sought to be the most competitive in their industries, and to provide the highest quality products and services to their customers and clients. However, these days, implementing greener, cleaner, and more efficient technological solutions is just as important as streamlining operations and boosting productivity. Fortunately, in the realm of thermal management, heat exchangers and similar custom thermal solutions have helped companies meet all of these goals and implement greener solutions at minimal costs.
Thermal management and environmental footprints
The quest for greener and cleaner operations has been notably felt in the thermal management solutions that companies rely on. Traditionally, those solutions include systems like air conditioning and air compressors, which utilize methods and substances that can increase a companies overall environmental impact. That includes chemicals like Freon, which air conditioners need to create chilled air and can be hazardous to the environment if it leaks out the cooling unit. These solutions also draw on large amounts of energy, and as companies continuously boost their operations, their energy consumption only increases further.
Heat exchangers and streamlined electrical cooling
The advent of heat exchangers several decades ago meant a lot to companies in every industry, and for a variety of different reasons. Most notably, using heat exchangers to cool electrical equipment meant that companies didn’t have to deal with larger, more cumbersome air conditioners or air compressors. Because heat exchangers don’t operate on the same principles of chilling air, they don’t require as much energy to prevent electrical overheating, either. Almost immediately, companies that implemented heat exchangers to replace their older thermal management systems were able to realize significant savings in the electrical cooling departments.
Why this equals greener energy and operations
The same reason why heat exchangers are less costly to operate is because they aren’t as complicated or obtrusive as other solutions. A heat exchanger streamlines electrical cooling by using an eco-friendly cooling fluid to absorb waste heat as soon as it’s released. The fluid evaporates once it reaches its latent heat of vaporization, becoming less dense so that it can travel through the heat exchanger more easily. Reducing the amount of energy that companies use to cool their electrical equipment, coupled with the use of only eco-friendly cooling fluids, makes heat exchangers a natural, greener solution for electrical thermal management.
