Vortec Enclosure Coolers

U.S. Metric

Product Overview

Enclosure Coolers keep Electrical and Electronic Enclosures cool, clean and protected and are a low cost alternative to expensive, high maintenance air conditioners; and avoid contamination with dirty, humid air caused by fans.

Today’s small, compact multi-function electronic controls, variable speed drives, servos and programmable logic controllers are extremely sensitive to heat and contamination.  Smaller cabinet sizes make temperature control difficult and prone to premature failures.  Excessive heat will cause digital displays to misread, controls to drift, and breakers to trip below rated loads.  The result is productivity lost due to machine or line shutdowns.

Vortex Enclosure Air Conditioning Coolers maintain a slight pressurization in the cabinet to keep electrical and electronic components clean and dry; and most are thermostatically controlled to maintain enclosure temperatures within a specified temperature range.

Vortec offers multiple types of enclosure coolers to meet your enclosure cooling needs, all available in a variety of cooling capacities and ratings (NEMA, IP, HazLoc):
