As companies in all industries strive to find ways to make their operations more eco-friendly, the realm of electrical thermal management has played an important role. Traditionally, it’s also been one of the most energy and attention-reliant aspects of those operations. The conventional air conditioning and air compressing solutions that companies relied on were far from eco-friendly, though they had few other options to affordably keep their electrical equipment cooled. Today, however, more advanced heat exchangers and other custom thermal solutions provide a more streamlined and eco-friendly way to achieve high-performance electrical cooling in a wide range of modern applications.
Rethinking how to handle waste heat
The first step to making electrical thermal management greener and more efficient is to reexamine how a cooling solution handles electrical waste heat. For conventional solutions, that typically means using chilled air to keep the temperature inside of electrical enclosures well below their maximum operating temperatures. Those methods required HVAC and other equipment that involve processes that are not exactly eco-friendly. However, heat exchangers create a way to handle waste heat that doesn’t requires large amounts of energy or the use of complex processes and harmful chemicals. Instead, they simply utilize an eco-friendly cooling fluid to absorb waste heat and transfer it in a continuous loop.
Eco-friendly aspects of modern heat exchangers
By changing the way thermal management solutions address electrical waste heat, heat exchangers help make the entire process more efficient and eco-friendly in several different ways. For example, the cooling fluid used in most heat exchangers is water, or another equally eco-friendly fluid, rather than chemical solutions such as Freon. There’s no need to compress the air, nor to chill it by any other additional means, so heat exchangers require minimal energy to continue running continuously. In addition to being more energy efficient, heat exchangers also don’t require as much routine maintenance and are less prone to malfunctioning and breaking down.
Customizing more eco-friendly cooling solutions
As companies implement more advanced forms of technology beyond electrical cooling, the overall costs of that implementation are a significant factor. With technologies that utilize heat exchangers and custom thermal solutions based on the same heat transfer principles, the lower long-term costs help make innovation easier and more affordable for most companies.
