What’s New in Temperature Control Innovation?

The demand for energy-efficient industrial cooling solutions is on the rise today, due to scarcity of energy and the need for sustainability. This has led to a number of innovations in the field of sustainable cooling systems.

One major innovation in the temperature control arena has been the indirect evaporative cooling which works on the revolutionary Dry Air Moist Air (DAMA) heat exchanger technology. HMX, a company which designs and manufactures unique, energy-efficient and eco-friendly products for space cooling (and a part of the A.T.E. group) uses DAMA as its core technology. The highly optimized design counts for the strength and stability at which the system works. Evaporative Cooling minimizes the use of refrigerants but still manages to supply cleaner and cooler air without losing the core of sustainable innovation.

Indirect evaporative cooling has brought in a great change in comfortable cooling where the temperature reduces without having to add moisture to the primary air. There are four parts of innovative air conditioning in the industrial space:

1.    Comfort cooling – Ambient temperatures can vary throughout the year in different areas, but trades and industries need a certain range to be maintained for the work to go on, and production to continue non-stop. Comfort cooling is all about being able to maintain a certain temperature if an industrial set-up is planted in the deserts or near a snowy area!

2.    Pre-Cooling – Pre-cooling solutions are such that work with an existing conditioning system but reduce the consumption of energy using an indirect evaporating system. Industrial systems, especially workplaces with mainly a great number of people can benefit from such a setting, it helps to make their surroundings more comfortable and eco-friendly, and further reducing costs by saving energy!

3.    Process Cooling – Some industries require a certain parameter of climate control and humidity, as their production works in that way, for instance, food products. This specific requirement can be fulfilled by innovative climate control technologies, constantly being developed at HMX.

4.    Spot Cooling – A lot of industries have certain spots in their workplaces which require more cooling than the other sections. For instance, a printing unit has a special area for bigger printers that require more cooling compared to the rest. Even in the automobile industry, certain parts of the factory need the equipment and some parts to be in a cooler situation before they are finally assembled.

With these factors in mind, innovation will continue further, and probably more needs will be defined in the coming years for industrial cooling.
