Heat Exchanger-Powered Wastewater Treatment

In many different industries, wastewater is an unfortunate but unavoidable byproduct of certain essential processes. This water has to be released into the environment, or repurposed for other industrial uses and then released, at some point after production. However, before it can be, companies must institute effective wastewater treatment processes to remove the harmful toxins, chemicals, and other substances that the water carries. In many cases, the use of modern heat exchangers helps make this process much more effective, cost-efficient, and manageable, helping companies maintain optimal wastewater treatment processes at minimal costs.

Creating Below-Ambient Cooling without Chilled Air

For most common systems, the maximum operating temperature of a given application is much higher than the ambient temperature around it. Therefore, for such applications, there is no pressing need to have to chill the inside of electrical enclosures to prevent them from overheating. That’s why heat exchangers first became a more popular alternative. Instead of chilling air, the innovative thermal management solutions created a way to prevent overheating by simply removing the heat, keeping the temperature inside of electrical enclosures at just above the ambient temperatures outside of them. However, the same principles of heat transfer can also be applied to create below-ambient cooling solutions that still don’t rely on air conditioning and chilling. (more…)

Translating Heat Exchanger Tech into Machine Tool Cooling

Heat exchanger technology has proven to be one of the biggest innovations in electrical thermal management over the last few decades. From it, several other innovative, custom thermal solutions have also been developed and become as popular and beneficial as more conventional heat exchangers. For example, in the molding industry, the process of cooling molds and facilitating faster, more efficient machine tool cooling is an essential advantage. With the implementation of custom thermal pins, which are specialized heat exchangers designed specifically for molding equipment, companies can achieve these and many other advantages safely and with minimal costs.

Are Heat Exchangers as Effective in the Oil & Gas Industry?

Some technological concepts transcend industries and become staples of operations in virtually all of them. For decades, heat exchangers and other custom thermal solutions have been just a concept. Their advanced, highly efficient thermal management methods have benefited companies in fields ranging from manufacturing and production to medical and other high-performance technologies, and much more. However, some industries, have been slower to adopt such solutions. For those that operate in particularly hazardous locations, such as the oil and gas industry, such solutions have only relatively recently been designed to maximize both efficiency and safety in such conditions.

The Energy Efficient Way to Cool Electrical Control Panels

These days, thermal management can mean a wide range of things for companies in various industries. However, the most common and frequent thermal management need is the need to keep electrical enclosures, such as control panels, properly cooled and protected from outside contaminants. In this area, heat exchangers have long been a preferred thermal management solution. Their ability to rapidly and continuously transfer waste heat, often within a closed-loop system, and to operate with minimal amounts of energy have made modern heat exchangers a much more energy efficient way to cool electrical control panels in most industries.

Challenges that Heat Exchangers Make a Non-Issue

No matter how advanced technology becomes, it always has to account for the waste heat that its electrical components generate. Innovative setups can help reduce the amount of heat they produce, but nevertheless, applications still require effective solutions for dealing with the heat that is emitted. Finding the right solutions can sometimes be challenging, especially when application designers or end users rely on traditionally cumbersome thermal management solutions. With modern, custom thermal solutions, such as heat exchangers, many of the challenges of efficient thermal management are much less challenging, and therefore, much easier to overcome. (more…)

3 Simple but Highly Effective Heat Transfer Methods

For companies where modern heat exchangers are the main thermal management solution, the biggest difference between the advanced solutions and more traditional cooling methods is the cost associated with each. Compared to things like air conditioners and air compressors, heat exchangers can operate longer and more reliably, all while using a fraction of the energy and requiring minimal maintenance to do so. However, the biggest difference – the one that all others stem from – is the manner in which heat exchangers approach thermal management. Rather than chilling air to overwhelm electrical waste heat, the more streamlined solutions operate on more natural and easily manageable methods of transferring heat. (more…)

An Everyday Look at the Benefits of Heat Exchangers

Companies in every industry that have implemented heat exchangers for most or all of their thermal management needs can point to several different areas in which better thermal management has changed their operations. However, the advantages that come with streamlining thermal management, electrical and otherwise, often extend far beyond improving productivity and efficiency for manufacturing and other corporations. For example, reducing the costs of operations means companies can offer more affordable and higher-quality products to their consumers, allowing those consumers to enjoy a higher overall quality of life. Limiting energy usage and reducing the amount of pollution generated by traditional thermal management methods also benefits the communities in which many companies operate. (more…)

Thermal Solutions to Streamline Food & Beverage Production

As manufacturing and other industrial processes have been transformed by technology, companies that rely on that technology have benefited in several important and highly impactful ways. For example, in most industries, advanced technology has changed everything from administrative tasks like bookkeeping and customer relationship management to day-to-day manufacturing and production processes. In the food and beverage industry, those changes include the ability to more efficiently and safely improve a company’s productivity, as well as their ability to consistently provide high-quality products at minimal operating costs.

Value in Customizing Thermal Management Solutions

Over the course of a few decades, heat exchangers changed the face of electrical thermal management for most industries. What was once a burden that companies had to strategize around became an area of innovation where companies could now streamline their operations and save significantly in the process. Today, heat exchangers continue advancing the realm of thermal management in several ways, and as technology continues to evolve, their customizability plays an increasingly more important role. For many applications, the ability to customize thermal management solutions is one of the greatest advantages of modern heat exchangers.  (more…)
