When Is the Ambient Temperature Too Hot to Rely on Air to Air Heat Exchangers for Enclosure Cooling?



When you are looking for an efficient method for enclosure cooling, a heat exchanger is a good solution for a few different reasons. Not only is a heat exchanger energy efficient, but it allows you to maintain a completely closed loop enclosure cooling solution. The way a heat exchanger operates is by employing a heat pipe principle to exchange heat from an electrical enclosure to the outside. The waste heat is actually the engine that drives the system.

Enclosure Heat Exchangers Beat Enclosure Fans in Long-Term Costs


a2a-family-resized-600Filtered fans are traditionally thought of as the least expensive enclosure cooling option. In terms of up-front costs, this is a true statement. However, if you consider the long-term costs of using a filtered fan solution that does not protect electrical components from dirt and dust in the environment, filtered fans can actually cost you more in the long run.
