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.
