With the advent of heat exchangers, many companies have enjoyed the benefits of more streamlined and efficient electrical cooling. For many applications, the key is utilizing natural heat transfer methods to keep temperatures inside of electrical enclosures at just above the ambient temperatures outside of them. Known as ambient cooling, this method has proven more than effective for most applications. However, in some cases, companies still require the ability to chill electrical enclosures to well below the ambient temperatures outside of them. Fortunately, modern heat exchangers are able to help companies achieve below-ambient cooling without the need for chilled air, which helps them benefit even more from the natural cooling methods of modern heat exchangers.
The advancement of ambient cooling methods
When it comes to electrical thermal management, the capabilities of companies to achieve ambient cooling in rapid, efficient ways has been the crux of modern advancement. With modern heat exchangers, this is accomplished with the help of an eco-friendly cooling fluid that rapidly absorbs heat, then efficiently transfers it elsewhere (such as a custom heat sink) before it has a chance to accumulate. This eliminates the need for most applications to utilize chilled air in order to prevent electrical overheating. However, in some applications, ambient cooling isn’t sufficient enough, and companies can often believe they still need older, more cumbersome solutions (like air conditioners or air compressors) to properly cool them.
Using natural methods for below-ambient cooling
With more modern, below-ambient heat exchangers, the need for more costly air chilling solutions has diminished even further. While many applications require cooling to temperatures well below the ambient temperatures outside of their enclosures, the use of specialized heat exchangers can help them achieve it more efficiently. Using eco-friendly cooling fluid that’s chilled to the appropriate temperatures and a specially designed heat exchanger unit that allows for optimal flow and heat transfer, below-ambient cooling can be accomplished as efficiently and cost-effectively as ambient cooling processes.
The savings companies enjoy with streamlined cooling
What first made heat exchanger technology and ambient cooling processes so popular were the significant savings that companies enjoyed by streamlining their electrical thermal management processes. Compared to relying on chilled air and complicated machinery to generate and circulate it, heat exchangers can achieve higher levels of efficiency and productivity when cooling modern technologies. With below-ambient heat exchangers, companies can also enjoy those advantages for applications that require more than typical ambient cooling.
