4 Thermal Management Solutions to Consider in Industrial Electrical Design

If you want to extend the life of expensive electrical equipment and keep it running efficiently for years to come, you need to consider thermal management solutions that are reliable.

As you know, thermal management is becoming more and more critical as many components and control panels have higher heat loads than in the past. That heat needs to be dissipated properly and efficiently in order to maintain a reliable electrical system.  When planning your next project, consider these thermal management solutions in your industrial electrical design plans:

Why High Power Components Require an Enclosure Air Conditioner

High power components can be divided into two groups, those that are electro-mechanical and those that are electronic. These devices are expected to handle a significant amount of power and generate a lot of heat. Typical applications where components generate high temperatures include motion control and downhole drilling. The heat generation of electronic components is well understood but it is easy to overlook the fact that electro-mechanical devices also generate substantial amounts of heat, especially as they get older.

How Enclosure Air Conditioner Packages Can Prevent Mounting & Installation Issues

Your electrical equipment is valuable, so it is important to invest in an enclosure and an air conditioner that will protect it under all of the expected environmental conditions. However, the process to select and install these systems is not always as easy as it seems, especially if you have never done it before. When an engineer designs a custom electrical enclosure, it will meet all the necessary dimensional specifications, but if they did not consider the cooling system, you might encounter unexpected problems with mounting and installation.

Enclosure Cooling Techniques for Industrial Control Panels

Electrical control panels, working in busy industrial applications, serve as the nerve center for many businesses. They are a critical piece of equipment that can ring up some expensive downtime if they are not monitored, maintained and cooled properly.

Most of the enclosures that house electrical control panels find themselves in hot and dusty areas, two potentially damaging factors that must be mitigated when choosing to employ the right enclosure cooling techniques.

Keep Electrical Components Safe from Contaminates with a Proper Enclosure Cooling System

Electrical components in an environment containing chemical vapors and dusts are subject to corrosion, and as a result equipment malfunction or failure is more prone to happen. Even gold and silver plated connectors and contacts are affected as porosity allows contaminates, especially in high relative humidity conditions, to attack the underlying metals.
