First 5 Steps When Troubleshooting Enclosure Cooling Fans

Under ideal environmental conditions, enclosure cooling fans offer the most cost effective solution to adequately cool sensitive electrical components. Cooling fans function best when located indoors where minimal levels of dust and dirt exist, away from moisture and corrosive chemicals. The ambient air temperature should be low enough to properly cool heat producing components.

How Are Enclosure Air Conditioners for Water Treatment Different?

Designing an enclosure cooling system for a water treatment plant is different than for most other industrial settings. The environment in and around the plant is far more likely to have high humidity, and to be exposed to the corrosive liquids and vapors from the harsh chemical reagents required to sterilize the infrastructure from viruses, bacteria and other toxins present in the wastewater stream.

Why Cooling is Critical for Your Industrial Control Panel Enclosure

Industrial control panel designers often overlook the importance of effective enclosure cooling. For this reason, many panels are designed for natural ventilation and insufficient consideration is given to the combined effects of ambient temperature and enclosure heat load. This results in an inability to maintain the cabinet's internal temperature at a safe level.
