Industrial enclosure air cooling solutions vs liquid cooling solutions

Almost without exception, industrial environments are hostile spaces for electrical equipment: their components don’t react well to high levels of moisture, dust, and heat in the atmosphere.

This sensitivity, in turn, affects plant efficiency and will ultimately lower output and profitability. However, moisture, dust and heat don’t need to be a concern, provided you implement an effective climate control solution for your equipment. 

The first step is to consider what constitutes suitable cooling to meet your needs, bearing in mind that your cooling needs may alter with any future changes to applications within your facility.

It’s common for managers, when choosing a cooling solution, to default to air cooling using fans and filters, because it’s familiar. 

While air cooling can be a viable solution, it also has its limitations, which must be understood before it’s installed. Otherwise, you risk creating further problems further down the line.
