Our most recent blog discusses the importance of sustainable cooling methods when caring for your industrial applications, and how thermoelectric methods can help. Although there are different parameters surrounding machines in different industries, our team is dedicated to helping you find the ideal solution that optimizes your capabilities, while also taking care to provide sustainable practices. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX continues our discussion on eco-friendly thermal management methods by examining the benefits of passive cooling.
Utilizing Natural Convection
In order to get the most out of your technological application, you must first be conscious of the primary methods used to regulate internal temperatures. You see, overheating is by far the most common concern companies run into when regulating function, as there is often not a viable method implemented to remove waste heat from the enclosure. This leads to increased internal temperatures. As these rates begin to rise, you will begin to experience functional concerns from your equipment, including dangerously high temperatures, temporary shutdown, permanent breakdown, and even electrical fires.
Whether you are aware of it or not, thermal solutions are essential for continued function. Through processes such as heat spreading, movement, dissipation, conduction, convection, and radiation, you can obtain consistent safety and protection.
When looking at passive cooling, the primary process used is convection. Indeed, convection involves the transfer of heat from a solid to a fluid. What’s more? You can utilize two forms of convective heat transfer to suit your needs: passive or active methods.

Understanding Passive Methods
Passive convection, also known as natural convection, occurs when variation in fluid temperature contributes to fluid motion. For example, the fluid in your heat exchanger is first exposed to the heat source and waste heat is absorbed by the fluid. Cooler fluid is more dense than hot fluid, therefore the fluid rises to the top as internal temperatures increase. These density variations cause buoyancy forces to create movement within the fluid, thus resulting in a continuous cycle of eco-friendly thermal management.

One of the primary benefits that arises from use of passive convection is the ability to provide optimal application function without causing harm to your physical working environment. In fact, there are no dangerous fumes or anything of the like, and maintenance/upkeep is minimal and simple to perform. Finally, our team believes that you should not have to make the decision of having to sacrifice quality for sustainability, as our solutions offer the best of both worlds.
