The idea of implementing more energy efficient and eco-friendly business practices has permeated most industries for decades now. It has prompted a wide range of initiatives, from carpooling and recycling to completely upgrading companies’ technology and equipment. While companies’ missions to make their operations greener has taken on many different forms, one of the most common has been revolutionizing their electrical cooling systems. Traditional solutions like air conditioners have been notorious for the amounts of energy they use and their inefficient operations. By upgrading their thermal management systems to more streamlined heat exchangers, companies have made significant strides in becoming greener and more eco-friendly businesses.
Investing in greener technologies and processes
Modern investments in eco-friendly technologies and processes have come in many different shapes and forms. For some companies, it means finding alternative sources of energy, such as solar, to power as many processes as possible. In many others, it means implementing solutions such as wastewater treatment to reduce the amount of pollution they release into the environment. In most cases, however, going green requires an investment in newer technologies and processes that are designed specifically to reduce a company’s environmental footprint. Systems used for electrical thermal management are often a prime target for this innovation.
Why focus on thermal management?
Electrical thermal management has always been a concern when it comes to making technology run smoothly. Without the right solution, electrical waste heat would quickly accumulate and overheat an application’s sensitive electrical components. However, traditional electrical cooling systems are well-known for using large amounts of energy, which has become increasingly more costly as companies have invested in technologies that can run nearly around the clock. Companies that want to not only streamline their electrical thermal management processes, but also lower their environmental footprints, can often find the optimal solution to both by upgrading their electrical cooling systems to heat exchangers.
Heat exchangers and greener electrical cooling
There are many different aspects of heat exchangers that make them a good investment toward greener business operations. Most stem from the more natural and eco-friendly methods of transferring heat that they use to prevent electrical overheating. Instead of using chilled air to keep temperatures inside of electrical enclosures low, heat exchangers use cooling fluid to keep the waste heat inside of the enclosure from ever accumulating. The heat transfer process involves methods such as natural/forced convection, conduction, and phase-change cooling – all of which require minimal amounts of energy and can be maintained without the use of potentially harmful chemicals.
