The image above shows a sophisticated microscope used in a highly controlled environment to monitor living cells. The end user of this microscope recently contacted the Application Engineering department at EXAIR in search of a method to cool the internal temperature of the microscope chamber from 22°C (72°F) to 14°C (57°F).
The small space of this application made the use of a typical refrigerant based air conditioner an impossibility. But, near to this microscope is a source of very dry, clean, oil free compressed air – perfect for operating a Cabinet Cooler.
The internal heat load of this application was known by the end user, but the effects of external heat load on the application were still unclear. In order to determine the full heat load of the application a Cabinet Cooler Sizing Guide must be used to perform heat load calculations. This document, once complete, allows EXAIR to determine both internal and external heat loads, which in turn allows us to determine the required Cabinet Cooler model number.
This application was served by the model 4325 Cabinet Cooler, which allowed for a cooling solution in tight spacing where a traditional air conditioning unit wouldn’t work. The small and compact design of the Cabinet Cooler was the perfect fit for this customer and application need. If you have an application in need of a cooling solution, contact an EXAIR Application Engineer. We’ll be happy to help.
