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 often have less room to do it in. With heat exchangers, however, that challenge can be met with more than satisfactory results. Using advanced ambient cooling methods that streamline the process of waste heat management, heat exchangers can give high-performance applications the cooling support they need to operate at optimal efficiency.

Can Heat Exchangers Work in Locations that Are Hazardous?

The more companies have benefited from modern heat exchangers, the more popular the innovative thermal solutions have become in virtually all industries. In areas from manufacturing to food and beverage production, and more, companies have been able to lower costs, improve productivity, and completely streamline their electrical thermal management systems. For some industries, however, the benefits of heat exchangers have been harder to achieve due to the particularly hazardous conditions under which they operate. In addition to more efficient and productive electrical cooling, thermal solutions for hazardous locations also have to provide higher-than-usual levels of safety and ingress protection, among other things. (more…)

What Kind of Costs Do Heat Exchangers Help Reduce?

There are many different ways in which companies benefit from utilizing heat exchangers for their thermal management needs. For example, by not having to rely on more traditional solutions, like air conditioners, companies are able to implement more advanced technologies with more efficient cooling systems that don’t significantly burden overhead costs. Heat exchangers are innovative thermal solutions that rely on methods of transferring electrical waste heat to prevent overheating. Unlike other solutions, which consist of air conditioning or air compressing equipment, heat exchangers offer optimal thermal management with minimal equipment and a fraction of the energy that older solutions require.

Helping Manufacturing and Other Industries Go Green

These days, companies in manufacturing and other industries compete on many different levels beyond growth and revenue. For example, many compete to be the most engaging and rewarding companies to work for, while others strive to offer the best one-on-one service to customers. With a focus on becoming more socially and environmentally responsible, most companies are also beginning to compete in realms of energy conservation and green energy initiatives. That competition can manifest in many ways, with companies implementing greener technologies and processes in nearly every aspect of their operations. With the help of modern heat exchangers, that includes the realm of electrical thermal management. (more…)

How Do Heat Exchangers Cool More with Less Energy?

Doing more with less is the key to optimal productivity, and for most companies, that extends to virtually every area of their operations. In the area of electrical thermal management, the options for boosting productivity have traditionally been limited. While there have been options, many of them focused on one or two common electrical cooling methods – air conditioning or air compression. When heat exchangers became a third option, companies finally had a viable way to cool their control panels and other electrical enclosures more efficiently and with significantly less energy. (more…)

What to Know About Electrical Thermal Management

It wasn’t very long ago that companies only had one or two options for their electrical thermal management needs. They had to keep their electrical enclosures properly cooled to prevent overheating, which required either air conditioning or air compressing solutions to circulate chilled air through the enclosures. Because their options were so limited, companies didn’t have to think much about which solutions they chose. Today, however, companies in all industries know more than ever about the importance thermal management and the much broader variety of options available to them today, including advanced heat exchangers and other custom thermal solutions. (more…)

3 Technological Advances that Contribute to Heat Exchangers

In many ways, modern heat exchangers have helped many different forms of technology advance more rapidly over the last few decades. The realm of thermal management was often a challenge in developing faster and more powerful technologies, mainly because traditional solutions (such as air conditioners) weren’t streamlined or adaptable enough to facilitate technological advancement. However, while heat exchangers helped make advancement possible for several other technologies, there are several important innovations that have made heat exchangers themselves possible. From more versatile heat transfer techniques to advanced manufacturing capabilities and more, these are just a few of the important innovations that have made modern heat exchangers so successful.
