Uncontrolled high temperatures in an electronic enclosure can overheat sensitive electronics and lead to component failures. Inadequately controlled enclosure cooling can lead to condensation that can cause corrosion as well as component and battery failure. Effective enclosure cooling maintains the temperature between these two extremes.
Industrial electrical and electronic equipment as well as components typically are housed in electrical enclosures designed to provide protection from the external environment. These components and equipment are sensitive to temperature changes, and at high temperatures, a number of issues can arise.
Composite parts such as wires, circuit boards or plated pieces present unique challenges to recyclers due to the mix of materials. Cryogenic processing using liquid nitrogen can help recyclers recover more materials for reprocessing.
Today, everything from household products to complex industrial parts is recycled, and the use of recycled materials in the manufacturing sector continues to increase due to environmental and economic benefits.
