Keeping it Cool with Vortex

15/02/2022parVortec Engineer
Thermal testing has proven that natural convection cooling is not adequate for today’s smaller, high power density enclosures. Heat dissipation by forced convection (fan cooling) is the most frequently used method of cooling. Forced air-cooling systems can provide heat transfer rates that are ten times greater than those achievable with natural convection and radiation, but even this is not adequate to cool faster electronic components when they are located in hostile plant environments.

A Quick Guide to Enclosure Cooler Maintenance

03/03/2020parVortec Engineer
Nothing in life is ever as simple as ‘set it and forget it,’ but if there was, compressed air enclosure coolers are about as close as it gets. Once you install the cooler on your enclosure or cabinet, attach the compressed air line, and you are in business. For a quick and easy installation process, check out our Vortex AC’s. We designed it, so installation takes under 10 minutes, see our “How To: Installing a Vortex AC Enclosure Cooler System” video for more information.

Hazardous Location Enclosure Cooling Solutions

14/08/2018parVortec Engineer
Combustible vapors, liquids, gases or flammable dusts are often present in many industrial applications. These materials are safe in small amounts, but when they exist in abundance they become a hazard, with the possibility to wreak havoc on production processes and endanger the lives of employees. With the implementation of the correct equipment, these costly hazards can be contained and controlled, making an explosion or large fire avoidable.
