Using Heat Exchangers in Wastewater Treatment Plants

Being certified to operate in hazardous locations often makes Noren’s heat exchangers the optimal solution for vital industries, such as wastewater treatment. When wastewater is treated, certain gases are released in the air that could potentially contaminate exposed electrical components and cooling units. Because heat exchangers offer a high degree of ingress protection, they can simultaneously keep wastewater treatment systems cool while preventing contamination from reaching sensitive circuits.

Ruggedized Thermal Management Solutions for Tough Applications

Technology evolves at a sometimes neck-breaking pace, and in many industries, keeping up with the evolution is vital to maintaining an advantage over the competition. However, if organizations had to reinstall brand new equipment across the board every time an upgrade rolled out, any advantage gained would be lost to exorbitant costs and excessive downtime for their systems. At Noren, retrofitting and ruggedizing existing equipment with innovative heat exchanger technology is one of our many specialties. For instance, many of our projects have involved ruggedizing our advanced heat exchanger technology to fit a variety of military applications, where advanced systems need to be protected under the harshest conditions.    (more…)

A More Efficient Way to Cool High-Performance Computers

A More Efficient Way to Cool High-Performance ComputersSome electronics work well in high temperatures, but even the most durable equipment generates more heat than it can handle by itself. As computers get smaller and microprocessors get more powerful, they require more effective thermal management solutions that can fit into tighter spaces. Noren’s custom-designed solutions, including advanced heat pipes, can provide a more natural way to cool high capacity computer equipment without taking up much space or energy. (more…)

Choosing the Right Panel Cooling Option

Technology has come a long way over the last several decades, and has become an integral part of most industries. As the technology has become more powerful, maintaining complex systems has become a vital part of an organization’s ability to continue functioning. One of the most significant needs is a comprehensive cooling solution to keep electrical equipment operating without overheating. Choosing the right electrical panel cooling solution means choosing the option that doesn’t demand exorbitant amounts of energy, and that can last for several years without needing to be fixed or replaced.

What If It’s Too Hot for an Air-to-Air Heat Exchanger?

In most climates, air-to-air ambient heat exchangers are a highly efficient solution for managing electric waste heat. However, they rely on the ambient temperature being below the maximum operating temperature of the equipment inside the electrical enclosure. When the ambient temperature outside is too hot for an air-to-air heat exchanger to work, an air-to-water  heat exchanger can still help you avoid having to rely on a more costly air conditioning system. While air-to-air coolers transfer heat to keep the air just above ambient, air-to-water units are able to keep the air inside the electrical cabinet below ambient temperatures in particularly hot climates.

How Do Heat Exchangers Save Money?

Since computers and electrical equipment revolutionized manufacturing and other industries, the additional costs of keeping that electrical equipment running have been a necessary part of a company’s overhead. Those costs come largely from keeping large, energy-draining air conditioners constantly going to eliminate electrical waste heat, preventing the heat from damaging the electronic circuits. With Noren’s custom heat exchangers, industries are beginning to realize that such exorbitant overhead costs are no longer necessary. Heat exchangers not only provide more versatile thermal management solutions; they also help save money in several different ways. (more…)

Heat Exchangers Allow for More Efficient Technology

In increasingly more applications, heat exchangers are becoming the preferred way to keep electrical enclosures continuously cool. Noren’s cooling technology has even been certified for use in hazardous locations, as well as demanding industries such as military and aerospace technology. Compared to other electrical cooling methods, heat exchangers often provide the best way to keep high-powered technology operating at optimal efficiency with minimal energy costs and maintenance needs. (more…)

Keeping Contaminants Out of Electrical Cooling Cabinets

There are several factors to consider when designing a thermal management system for electrical cabinets. Energy consumption, for instance, will have long-term effects on the cooling system’s efficiency, as well as its need for maintenance and overall shelf-life. Also, for most electrical cabinets, the cooling system must be designed in a way that minimizes or eliminates the potential for moisture buildup and air contamination within the cabinet. For optimal results in every project, Noren custom-designs thermal management solutions that not only help save on energy and maintenance costs, but also reduce the risks of contamination damaging expensive components within an electrical enclosure. (more…)

Cooling Electrical Enclosures without Condensation

The point of keeping electrical cabinets cool is to stop waste heat from damaging the electrical equipment. Traditionally, this has been achieved with a variety of methods; the most common of which were air conditioning and compressed air cooling units. However, with today’s high-powered and high-performance technology, such solutions require massive energy consumption, and in some cases, can create additional problems, such as condensation, that can damage the equipment. Fortunately, Noren’s heat exchanger technology makes it possible to cool electrical enclosures without condensation or other forms of contamination, and without consuming excessive amounts of energy.
