Cabinet Coolers

Cabinet Cooler use vortex tube technology to deliver cold air stream to electrical cabinets and other enclosures. The vortex tube is a fascinating device that utilises basic thermodynamic principles to produce significant cooling in air streams. Compressed air enters the tube and is, as it expands, is forced into a rapidly rotating swirling flow within the tube. The very rapidly rotating air then acts like a centrifuge system which separates lighter (less dense) parts of the air from more dense parts. As hot air is lighter than cooler air what this means is that a heat differential is set up and cool air is forced one way through the tube and hot air the other way. The resulting cooling is quite dramatic with ambient compressed air entering the tube and the split air having a temperature difference of over 130 degree C in some cases. At the cool end of the vortex tube air flows as cool as minus 50 degree C can be achieved. This cold air can then be applied to cool whatever is required.

The cooling of enclosures and cabinets is a common application in many factories. Often electrical cabinets need to be kept cool in a hot factory to ensure that they continue to operate effectively. Often, if the factory setting is a dirty or wet environment, the deployment of air conditioning units can be problematic. So a viable alternative is to use compressed air cooling systems using vortex tube technology.

Vortex tubes produce very cold air streams with no external power source. They rely entirely on the work being done by the expanding compressed air to create a temperature differential. The hot air end is exhausted to the factory and the cool air stream injected into the cabinet/ enclosure where it displaces the warm air within which is then also vented to atmosphere. The result is a rapid cooling of the cabinet with no need to deploy powered cooling equipment in the factory all that is required is an air-line.

Cabinet coolers are rated with a certain wattage of cooling power and the cool air streams can be directed to internal hot spots, such as CPU’s, within the enclosure by attachable hoses. Each cabinet cooler is also given an IP rating which will dictate which wet conditions the unit can be used. They can be rated up to IP66 which means they are suitable for use in the presence of sprays and wash down environments

Another advantage of using cabinet coolers is that the enclosure remains at a slightly positive pressure which helps keep it dust free as well.

Reliability and Maintenance

When compared to blower systems enhanced compressed air cooling systems are very easy to maintain. Whether the system is comprised of air nozzles, air amplifiers, air jets or air knives there are no moving parts involved and no external power is required. This means that there is virtually nothing to go wrong with the blow off system. Similarly, vortex tube powered coolers have no external power source or moving parts are so are equally reliable and maintenance free.

The simplicity of these systems means they can be deployed in areas that would preclude the deployment of powered blowers. In dirty, wet or humid areas of the production facility any powered equipment requires often costly protection to prevent it breaking down. This may involve water proofing or additional filtration / dust protection. Compressed air systems require none of this and so, in such environments, they are intrinsically more reliable.
