In our previous blog, our team did a deep-dive into the various solutions we offer that utilize passive cooling or natural convection. Indeed, we do not subscribe to the notion that one must sacrifice quality for sustainability or vice versa, and as such, we have made it our mission to provide eco-friendly heat exchangers and accessories that can help you get the most from your technological applications. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX furthers our discussion about convection cooling by taking a look at the benefits of active cooling, also known as forced convection.
What is Active Cooling?
Whether you are aware of it or not, one of the biggest threats to your operation involves overheating applications, enclosures, and electrical cabinets. Indeed, technological advancement has paved the way for exponentially greater output and productivity, but that does not mean that your devices are able to withstand consistent function over time.
As a matter of fact, one of the biggest threats to function is overheating. This process occurs when the internal temperature of an enclosure reaches dangerous levels. As a result, your devices may experience temporary shutdown, permanent damage, or even electrical fires.
In order to get the most from your devices without having to worry about overheating, it is highly encouraged you seek a thermal management solution such as a heat exchanger. What’s more? Forced convection cooling not only addresses the issue of overheating, but allows you to use your devices to their intended capacity. For more information about this process and how our team can help, give us a call today.
Differences from Natural Convection
Although there are several cooling options out there that can be utilized to promote more efficient function, it is important to recognize the role of your needs and parameters in the process. Convection cooling occurs when heat is transferred from a solid medium to that of a fluid or gas. Unlike passive cooling, active methods force a fluid over the surface of the heat source through the use of an external source, such as a fan or pump. In turn, this produces an artificial current that regulates internal temperatures.
Products to Suit Your Needs
Believe it or not, there is actually a host of products we create that can be designed with a specific thermal method in mind. What’s more? Natural or forced convection can optimize a number of capabilities, but it is important to recognize that not all environments or operations may get the most from these methods. As such, we encourage you to give our team a call so we can help you determine the best solutions for your needs.
