ACT Enters Sealed Enclosure Cooling Market
Coolers are used to dissipate heat inside enclosures or cabinets that house electrical/electronic equipment
LANCASTER, Pa. — Advanced Cooling Technologies Inc. (ACT) has announced the launch of its HSC, HPC, and LNC series of sealed enclosure cooling products. ACT said this launch is the first step of its entrance into the sealed enclosure cooling market.
Sealed enclosure coolers are used to dissipate heat inside enclosures or cabinets that house and protect electrical/electronic equipment from harmful environments. These cabinets are typically sealed to a National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standard. For example, a NEMA 12 cabinet is for indoor use and protects against drips, dust, and falling dirt, while a NEMA 4 cabinet is for outdoor use and must be watertight. Sealed enclosure coolers are required to efficiently transfer heat from the inside space to the outside environment while maintaining the seal.
ACT’s HSC series of coolers are based on a patent pending design that utilizes air impingement technology that is thermally efficient and heat sink components commonly used by the computer industry.
ACT’s HPC series of coolers are based on heat pipe heat exchanger technology and incorporate advanced fin features for enhanced heat transfer performance.
ACT’s LNC series of coolers are based on a patent pending design that utilizes a HSC-style air impingement heat sink to collect heat from the hot inside air and a larger extruded heat sink to dissipate the heat to the outside ambient via natural convection.
“Sealed enclosure coolers are logical extensions of many products that we currently manufacture for satellite, defense, medical, and HVAC applications,” said Peter Dussinger, vice president of strategic products at ACT. “We’re very excited about bringing innovation to the sealed enclosure cooling market.”
