It’s November, and I’ve had to scrape ice from my windshield three times this week. I’m not complaining – I surrendered the right to complain about the cold when I moved from Florida to Ohio, on purpose, some 25 years ago…this month, in fact. I’m just making an observation. And noting that it’s 73 degrees & sunny in Cocoa Beach right now.
But it is a noteworthy time to be getting urgent calls about cooling applications, like the one I got just the other day. A manufacturing facility had just suffered the loss of a VERY expensive installation of Variable Frequency Drives (VFD’s) because of a failure of the refrigerant-based cooling system that had come, pre-installed, on the panel. This machinery, being critical to their process, needed to be brought back on line, RIGHT NOW, and they were the better part of a week away from getting a service technician to look at their current coolers. They had much better luck with the VFD’s; thanks to a good relationship with a prompt repair service provider, they were going to be operational the next day. But obviously, they wouldn’t be in operation for very long without proper cooling.
Enter the EXAIR Cabinet Cooler System. Now, we LOVE to calculate the heat load from the operating conditions of an existing system, but since this one wasn’t running, we were left with estimating the heat load, based on the power requirements of the VFD’s – which did indeed line up with the capacity of the failed A/C system, so we offered a Model 4870 NEMA 4 Cabinet Cooler System – 4,800 Btu/hr – with Thermostat Control. As a stock catalog product, it was available for same-day shipment, allowing them to resume operation just as quickly as the VFD’s could be restored. The EXAIR Cabinet Cooler product line is available in NEMA 12, 4, and 4X – and also a NEMA 4X in 316SS option for those harsher, more corrosive environments.
No matter how cold it gets outside, there are lots of “hot spots” in many workplaces that just don’t care about the regional climate. If you…or, more to the point, your critical electronics…are in one of those places, isn’t reliable protection a reasonable consideration? Give me a call; let’s talk.
