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 »

When Is an Ambient Heat Exchanger Appropriate?

Ambient cooling has long been one of the greatest advantages that heat exchangers provide for most applications. The idea is to cool an electrical enclosure to just above the ambient temperature outside of it, which is usually well below an application’s maximum operating temperature. The initial implementation and success of ambient heat exchangers showed companies… Read more »

A Quick Look at How Ambient Heat Exchangers Work

These days, heat exchangers come in a wide range of varieties according to any given application’s specific needs. However, some of the first (and still the most popular) versions are ambient units that keep electrical enclosures cooled to just above the ambient temperature outside of them. At first, ambient cooling technology proved a highly viable… Read more »

The Main Benefits of Ambient Heat Exchangers

As electronic devices and machines grow increasingly more powerful, it may seem like the only way to keep them effectively cooled is to come up with ways to chill their components. However, rather than invent miniature air conditioners, innovators of advanced technology often rely on heat exchanger technology that doesn’t chill enclosures at all. On… Read more »

Is Convection Really Enough to Cool Control Panels?

The most energy efficient way to prevent something from overheating is to allow heat to dissipate away from it. If it were possible to leave electronic components out in the open, then innovative thermal management solutions wouldn’t be as vital to modern technology. However, air-to-air heat exchangers often come as close as possible by utilizing… Read more »

Why Companies Choose Ambient Heat Exchangers

The more powerful technology becomes, the more important it is to effectively manage electrical waste heat. While thermal management needs evolve along with the systems that rely on them, one thing remains constant: heat exchangers can usually provide the most efficient and versatile solutions by simplifying the thermal management process. For instance, electrical enclosures and… Read more »

Cooling Down Control Panels with Air-to-Air Heat Exchangers

Without the need to chill electrical enclosures using air conditioning equipment, companies can save a significant amount of money on energy and maintenance costs. Yet, those benefits only matter if the replacement solution provides more efficient and reliable thermal management. Air-to-air heat exchangers, for instance, have helped Noren’s clients enjoy substantial savings in both energy… Read more »
