How Many Costs Can Air-to-Air Cooling Reduce?

The value in modern electrical thermal management systems can be measured in many different ways, depending on the application for which it’s used. For instance, the rate at which it can eliminate or transfer waste heat is important in helping applications operate at optimal capacity. The level of protection the system offers is important to… Read more »

An Advanced Method of Ambient Electrical Cooling

Electrical thermal management is a conundrum. If it could occur in a wide open environment, wear waste heat can simply flow away from sensitive components, then there would be little or no need for electrical thermal management solutions. However, an open environment would also leave those same components vulnerable to harmful contaminants, like dust and… Read more »

The Value in Modern Air-to-Air Heat Exchangers

The more powerful modern technology becomes, the more powerful and efficient its electrical thermal management must be. At first, that can seem like a need for more complex, complicated ways to generate chilled air faster than electrical components can generate waste heat. However, when it comes to efficient thermal management, more complex doesn’t always mean… Read more »

Ambient Cooling and Industrial Thermal Management

Of the many different options that companies now have for their industrial thermal management needs, ambient cooling (a natural method of preventing electrical overheating) remains one of the more popular methods. Compared to methods such as chilling air with the help of air conditioners or air compressors, the process of ambient cooling is much simpler… Read more »

How Efficient Are Air-to-Air Thermal Solutions?

It’s a fact of life that electrical components generate heat as they operate. It’s also a fact that, if not managed properly, that waste heat can quickly accumulate within an electrical enclosure and lead to extensive, devastating damage. The point of electrical thermal management is to prevent this from happening, and there are several ways… Read more »

Is Ambient Cooling Enough for High-Performance Applications?

When it comes to electrical thermal management, advanced technology is a double-edged sword. The applications are designed to operate faster, more powerfully, and within increasingly smaller confines. This makes them more appealing, but also poses significant challenges for implementing appropriate thermal management solutions. Such solutions need to adequately handle higher amounts of waste heat, and… Read more »

Advantages of Ambient Cooling with Heat Exchangers

Ambient cooling is a natural way of keeping temperatures low, but for electrical thermal management, it wasn’t always a viable option. The most efficient way to achieve ambient cooling was to leave electrical components out in the open, which only leaves them exposed to moisture, contaminants, and other harmful environmental influences. However, with the advent… Read more »

How Air-to-Air Cooling Compares to Air Conditioners

Before it became typical to implement heat exchangers for most electrical thermal management needs, the idea of ambient cooling didn’t seem very viable. Electrical components must be housed within enclosures, and without air conditioning units to keep those enclosures cool, they would quickly overheat and malfunction, before breaking down completely. However, heat exchangers proved that… Read more »

When Ambient Cooling Is All You Need

Not long ago, the idea of cooling electrical enclosures and other equipment to just above the ambient temperatures around them didn’t seem plausible. However, ever since heat exchangers became an increasingly more popular solution, the need for equipment such as air conditioners and other chilling methods have become less of a necessity. That’s because heat… Read more »

How Ambient Heat Exchangers Made Such an Impact

Advancements in technology tend to make mechanical and other operations better, and sometimes, that means breaking down a certain concept and addressing it more simply. For example, in the realm of electrical thermal management, the goal was traditionally to overwhelm electrical waste heat with colder chilled air. Solutions such as air conditioners and air compressors… Read more »
