If you have been made to leave your cabinet doors open because of heat, not anymore! We use cabinets to keep safely electrical equipment that we have within our home or office. What we do not know is that electrical equipment continues to generate heat even when they are off. The power used by these devices is later dispelled in the air as heat. Storing them in an enclosed area that is not properly ventilated may expose them to heat damage. Having the right temperatures is vital in ensuring that the equipment stored in enclosures operate optimally.
Dangers of Excessive Heat
Heat has the potential of causing failures and malfunctioning to the electrical equipment stored in our enclosures, shortening their longevity. If the inside of a cabinet is not well ventilated, it may cause temperatures to rise resulting to overheating. Consequently, the electrical equipment will be subject to heat damaged resulting in operating failures thus compromising the equipment reliability. Cooling your enclosure system is advantageous. A properly cooled enclosure increases system reliability and the cost of installing a cabinet cooler will be recovered over the equipment lifetime.
Removing the Heat
One easy and fast way to cool an enclosure is to ensure there is an adequate flow of air. You can actively increase air circulating by installing cabinet Coolers. They are cost effective, low maintenance and unlike fans, they avoid contamination caused by dirt and humid air.
These coolers have are designed for venting and cooling cabinets by dispersing the buildup of heat within the enclosures. The cooling is done by the blowing-in air from outside through heat exchangers. Vortex coolers keep the cabinet within a specified temperature by applying slight pressure on the cabinet which helps to keep the electrical equipment clean and dry. They use an internal vortex tube to compressed air into low pressure and convert it to cold air stream that is circulated within the enclosure.
You are sure to get what you want with vortex coolers. These coolers come in a variety of designs that will meet your enclosure cooling needs.
Cabinet Coolers provide an effective and reliable way of cooling your cabinets. They provide air conditioning for the electrical equipment eliminating electronic shut down due to heat. You can incorporate a vortex cooler that produces compressed air with no moving parts. They are easy to use, can be installed within seconds and are maintenance free because of the absence of moving parts which tend to wear out.
When using a thermostat and solenoid valve, they must be located inside the protected enclosure for them to be useful in a hazardous area cabinet cooler. If that is not the case, modification of a vortex cooler may be necessary when used in a hazardous area cabinet coolers to prevent any combustible particle from escaping the enclosure and entering the hazardous area.
