Clogged Filters Impact Performance of Enclosure Coolers
Designed to cool dust- and oil-tight enclosures, enclosure cooling components typically operate without much intervention. Devices such as Exair’s cabinet coolers have no moving parts and do not require maintenance — as long as they are supplied clean, dry compressed air.
In a blog post, Cincinnati-based Exair explains how a customer who had used the cabinet coolers for more than five years noticed that cooling performance had degraded a bit. Exair worked with the customer to troubleshoot the equipment and identify the culprit: a clogged oil-removal filter used in the element to ensure clean, dry compressed air.
