In a world where production is king and the majority of businesses depend heavily on equipment that streamlines productivity, the last thing any business owner needs to endure includes the troubles of breaking down technology. Indeed, it would be foolish to believe that our machines will continue to function without paying mind to their needs, and cutting corners will inevitably end up costing you significantly in the end. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX will take a look at why thermal management is essential to production, and how active cooling capabilities can help.
Understanding Forced Convection
It goes without saying that there is always more than one solution to a problem. The important factor to keep in mind, however, is that not all equipment is aptly suited for every solution you might consider. Indeed, just as certain foods provide us with better nourishment, a thermal management solution for a unique application will thrive with some options over others. As a result, it is important to consider these unique parameters when searching for a custom solution.
One such method we utilize to ensure proper application cooling consists of forced convection. Convective heat transfer is the process of transferring heat from a solid to a fluid, and this can be done through natural means (passive or natural convection), or by the use of an external force.
In applications that convective heat transfer is utilized, fluid motion causes the heat to transfer from the source to the fluid itself, allowing the application to remain cool and within the specified temperature range. To learn more about this process and how our team can help you get started, contact a representative today.
Using Fans and Pumps
When we specifically look at active cooling, we see that instead of the fluid motion being caused by buoyancy forces, an external force such as a fan or a pump is used to force the fluid over the heat source. Utilizing the laws of physics, the higher temperature will transfer to the lower one, allowing the application itself to subsequently cool in the process.
Though the use of fans as opposed to pumps and vice versa will depend largely on your unique needs, our team offers both options and will work with you to ensure you receive nothing short of optimal. Speak with our team to learn more today.
