Key Differences to Eco-Friendly Thermal Management

Very few companies have been around since before technology became a dominant factor in most industries. Therefore, most companies started and continue to grow under the umbrella of technological advancement, and the constant need for innovation that it has sprung. For many companies, one of the biggest challenges to meeting this innovation is selecting the right thermal management solutions. To properly cool more advanced technologies, solutions must be highly efficient and reliable, as well as cost-effective and as eco-friendly as possible. In many cases, companies have been able to meet that need more than adequately, thanks to the help of modern, eco-friendly heat exchangers.

Meeting common thermal management goals

Creating and maintaining efficient and reliable thermal management processes has always been a challenge for companies that utilize technology. Historically, it’s been less of a challenge and more of a burden that companies were forced to bear. The only viable solutions for preventing electrical heating came in the form of air conditioning or air compressing units. These were the only method for effectively and consistently preventing electrical waste heat from overwhelming the sensitive electrical components inside of an electrical enclosure.  Today, however, heat exchangers and other modern thermal solutions are able to meet demanding thermal management needs much more efficiently, and without the need to use chilled air.

Improving the process of electrical cooling

One of the biggest problems with older thermal management solutions that are based on the use of chilled air is the fact that generating and circulating that air can be cumbersome processes. It takes a significant amount of energy to continuously create chilled air, and more to ensure that it continues to fight electrical waste heat. The machinery used for traditional cooling methods also often proved a burden to maintain, with constant needs for maintenance and unscheduled repairs. By contrast, heat exchangers are able to eliminate many of these burdens by eliminating the need for traditional cooling methods. Instead of relying on chilled air, they utilize eco-friendly cooling fluid to absorb and transfer waste heat, before it has a chance to accumulate and become a problem.

The advantages of more eco-friendly heat transfer

When companies first began relying on heat exchangers for their electrical thermal management needs, the most notable benefits included the reduced costs and maintenance needs associated with them. Companies no longer had to invest so heavily in energy resources, or accommodate downtime due to unscheduled maintenance and repairs. However, as the use of heat exchangers grew more prominent, the advantages of more eco-friendly electrical cooling became even more apparent. On top of saving significant costs and boosting their technologies’ efficiencies, companies are also able to substantially lower their environmental footprints.
