The image above shows a NEMA 4 Cabinet Cooler after years of use in a food production facility. The head electrician at the facility which uses this unit, contacted me regarding the possibility of installing thermostat controls on a pre-installed Cabinet Cooler systems. Apparently there are multiple EXAIR Cabinet Coolers in use around this facility, and as part of an improvement to compressed air efficiency, this facility wanted to explore automated regulation of the temperature in these enclosures (through thermostats). THis customer inquiry was about how to go about implementing such an upgrade.
It was refreshing for the end user to find that we have mechanical thermostat controls, solenoids, and even digital thermostatic solutions available from stock, making the upgrading process easy and pain-free. After some conversations over the phone and emailing part numbers along with our Cabinet Cooler Installation and Maintenance Guide, which outlines how to install the thermostat for our Cabinet Cooler systems, this customer had everything required to do exactly what they needed in their facility. (In this case, our model 9016 Solenoid Valve and Thermostat Kit met the voltage and compressed air flow requirements needed for the application.)
Providing efficient, controlled, and reliable solutions for industrial applications is all we do at EXAIR. If you have an application in need of a complete solution, or just an upgrade, contact an EXAIR Application Engineer. We’re happy to help.
For the record, EXAIR recommends the use of 316 grade stainless steel Cabinet Coolers in food production facilities
