Online Heat Load Calculator Determines Cooling Requirements
An updated online heat load calculator allows users to determine cooling requirements for their specific enclosure.
The online tool is designed to help users size enclosure cooling systems from Cincinnati-based Vortec. Users input enclosure dimensions, compressed air inlet temperature and pressure, current cabinet temperatures, worst-case ambient temperature and whether the enclosure is in direct contact with sunlight. Users select units of measure for length (inches or millimeters), power (watts or BTU/hr), temperature (Fahrenheit or Celsius), pressure (psig or bar) and NEMA rating required. The tool then calculates the total heat load in the enclosure and suggests a Vortec enclosure cooler suitable for the application.
The heat load calculator can generate a PDF of the results. This online tool is suited for a range of industries and applications, including industrial manufacturing, food, chemical, water, wastewater, oil refining and petrochemical processing.
