Ecofriendly Food Packaging with the Help of Heat Exchangers

When it comes to our food, we tend to be more discerning about the products we buy than we are with other goods and services. Recent studies show that consumers pay increasingly more attention to how food is made and packaged. The majority of them prefer companies that offer eco-friendly products and packaging over those that do not. At Noren Thermal, efficiency and eco-friendliness have always been a driving factor behind the innovative thermal management solutions we provide. For our clients in the food packaging industry, our heat exchangers have helped streamline their efforts by providing custom, green energy thermal management solutions. (more…)

Safeguarding Heat Exchangers from Powder & Bulk

Contamination comes in many forms, depending on the industry. In the field of food and beverage manufacturing, for instance, powder and bulk solid foods like sugar, salt, and grains can pose a threat to sensitive thermal management equipment if it’s allowed to get through the equipment’s seals and gaskets. In other manufacturing fields, the biggest threats could be dirt, sawdust, or other hazardous materials constantly floating through the air. In all cases, however, heat exchangers are often ideal for protecting vital equipment from potentially dangerous powder and bulk contamination. (more…)

Making Molding More Efficient with Thermal Pins

The ability to effectively handle heat is an important aspect of all manufacturing operations. In most cases, it involves transferring waste heat to avoid damage to electrical equipment. In the molding industry, however, controlling and then rapidly dissipating heat is vital to the manufacturing process itself. With custom, high-performance thermal pins, Noren Thermal has helped clients throughout the molding industry increase the yields and improve the quality of their molds, all while reducing energy and maintenance costs.  Thermal pins are specialized heat exchangers that are custom-designed specifically for the high-performance needs of the molding industry.

How Rapid Prototyping Makes Heat Exchangers More Efficient

Even with the most advanced design and manufacturing technology, not every product design translates flawlessly from paper to final product. For instance, sometimes, a part or product doesn’t quite fit as comfortably into a design’s limited space as the designer intended. Or, the wall of a heat exchanger may be closer to sensitive electrical equipment than designers realized. If a final product doesn’t fit the specifications it was designed for, then having to start over and produce all new units can be costly and time-consuming. With comprehensive feasibility studies and rapid 3D prototyping, we can detect and iron out issues that could halt production or affect a unit’s productivity, before the first unit is manufactured.

Making Food & Beverage Processing Easier with Heat Exchangers

On farms across the country, technology has made planting, harvesting, and producing food a more effective and efficient process than ever. The same is true for the facilities that sort, store, and package these goods. With the advent of modern technology, these facilities can ensure that our food supplies stay fresh, healthy, and safe until they reach our tables. Heat exchangers play a major role in this shift. In addition to helping keep farm machinery and manufacturing equipment operating properly, heat exchangers are also responsible for making many of the processes required for food and beverage packaging much easier and more reliable.

Heat Exchangers and Solar Energy

At their core, the main  benefit of using heat exchangers instead of air conditioning equipment to cool electrical enclosures is that they require much less energy to operate, thereby reducing a company’s overhead. Less energy also means a smaller environmental footprint, so by design, simply switching to heat exchangers is a significant step in going green. However, the way heat exchangers harness and transfer heat gives them the ability to do much more. For instance, in the case of solar water heating, a system of ecofriendly heat exchangers can ensure that the energy solar panels absorb is utilized for maximum benefits with minimal effort. (more…)

Propelling Automated Tech with Heat Exchangers

It isn’t just the fact that heat exchangers help companies save impressive amounts of money on energy costs. It’s that they also operate almost autonomously, needing little maintenance to operate continuously for years. For small electronics, this means more powerful and efficient personal devices. For manufacturing companies and other industries, this means the ability to more efficiently integrate automated technology into their everyday operations. To see the streamlined productivity and savings that automation can provide, heat exchanger technology helps ensure that equipment can continue operating with minimal human interaction. (more…)

Efficiently Meeting NEMA Standards for Electrical Control Panels

Developing and implementing innovative technology while sticking to precise safety and operation standards is a fine line to walk. However, it’s a necessary one not only to uphold user safety, but also to ensure the integrity of the technology being used. Among the many benefits of green energy heat exchangers, one of the greatest is the ability to meet the various NEMA standards that apply to electrical control panels and their thermal management solutions. (more…)

The Role of Modern Heat Exchangers

You might consider the engine in your vehicle it’s most important feature, considering that without it, the vehicle wouldn’t run. However, if the radiator didn’t work or wasn’t efficient enough, then the engine’s performance (which makes it so important) wouldn’t be anywhere near what it should be. In fact, before long, it would be nonexistent. Similarly, the ability to transfer heat away from high-performing but sensitive electrical equipment has become one of modern heat exchangers’ most essential roles. More efficient cooling means more effective technology, and in an era where innovation is par for the course, that often means relying on customized heat exchangers.  (more…)

Creating Ruggedized Heat Exchangers for Intense Applications

In the most popular applications, heat exchangers are utilized to cool electrical enclosures of all sizes, from control panels on manufacturing equipment to more complex automated technology, and more. In such applications, heat exchangers provide smaller, more effective thermal management units that can be designed to fit into significantly smaller spaces than other solutions. However, some industries require a little more from its technology than just efficient and ecofriendly performance. For instance, military and aerospace applications also need solutions that can make it through especially tough conditions, such as traveling at different velocities, withstanding significant impacts, and/or being pushed quickly through varying levels of air pressure.
