Since EXAIR Cabinet Coolers have no moving parts, another maintenance concern was eliminated.

The Problem: A wastewater treatment plant was using a traditional refrigerant based air conditioner to maintain the correct operating temperature on wastewater clarifier controls but could not withstand the harsh chemical environment of the wastewater industry. The controls for the wastewater clarifier process were mounted outdoors and typically experienced weather related overheating problems in the hotter months of the year. Not only did higher temperatures overtax the performance of the traditional refrigerant based air conditioner, the corrosive environment from the many different wastewater chemicals, acids and bases prematurely wore the critical moving parts of the air conditioner.

The Solution: A Model 4850SS-316 Cabinet Cooler System provided 3,400 Btu/hr. (857 Kcal/hr.) of cooling for the clarifier controls and kept them running efficiently. The Cabinet Cooler is resistant to seasonal temperature fluctuations because it operates from a source of compressed air and not ambient air. The 316SS construction also provided high corrosion resistance to the chemical environment. Since EXAIR Cabinet Coolers have no moving parts, another maintenance concern was eliminated.

EXAIR's Cabinet Coolers incorporate a vortex tube to convert standard compressed air into a cold, dry, dust-free stream of cooling air for control panels and circuit boards. The vortex tube component of the Cabinet Cooler is constructed of stainless steel to provide wear, corrosion and oxidation resistance. The compact Cabinet Coolers mount easily through a standard electrical knockout and are available to match the NEMA rating of the enclosure - NEMA 12, 4 and 4X (IP54 and 66). All Cabinet Coolers are UL Listed and CE compliant.
