Having the top-of-the-line product for thermal management capabilities is ideal in theory, however, any heat exchanger that is not customized to your needs simply will not help your applications perform at capacity. Indeed, your parameters play a major role in the operations process, and as such, they must be considered when searching for a thermal solution to upgrade your applications. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX discusses how ambient heat exchangers can assist enclosures where the outside ambient air is less than that of the enclosure.
A Variety of Enclosure Types
When it comes to certain thermal management methods, a variety of industries can benefit. For example, below ambient cooling is a process that works for enclosures in which the outside ambient air is at a temperature lower than the internal operating temperature of an application.
In cases such as these, the outside air is filtered into the enclosure, thus providing internal cooling. What’s more? This process allows for a simple, uniform cool while also ensuring your applications can continue to function as intended.
Because these metrics can apply to a variety of different industries, our team has taken that extra step to ensure we have options for different NEMA enclosures. For example, both our drop-in and flush-mount models are available in UL Type 3R, 4, 4X, and 12. This means that our ambient heat exchangers can be used in applications of general-purpose, watertight enclosures used in wastewater or shipping, and even in weather-resistant applications. To learn more about this process and how our team can help, give us a call today.
Utilizing Ambient Air
The primary stipulation with utilizing air to air products is that the outside ambient air temperature must be less than the internal temperature of an electrical enclosure. You see, the outside air is brought into the enclosure or electrical panel through one of our heat exchangers, and the lower temperature helps cool overheating devices. As such, the process would not work if outside air was higher in temperature than internal air. What’s more? Consistency is key, and our team will work with you to determine which option is ideal to help accomplish your goals. Contact a representative from our team today to learn more.
Unit Variation to Suit Your Needs
In addition to addressing enclosures of varying purposes, we also provide an additional unit style option to better suit your needs. For example, our drop-in units are designed to attach to the top of enclosures, whereas our flush-mount units can attach to the side of an application.
