It seems this heatwave map has become all too common. Australia's record breaking heat has been fierce with temperatures that have regularly gone above 40°C! For industrial plants, the dangerous heat can cause breakers to trip and circuit boards to fry, resulting in processes and assembly lines that come to a screeching halt and machines that fail.

Some individuals think that fans are the solution. Unfortunately, a fan forces hot, humid, dirty air onto your expensive circuitry. Since the air is hot, it has little to no cooling effect. Worse yet, the open panel door is a safety violation since it presents a shock hazard to your workers. A fan could end up costing you thousands of dollars in repairs and fines!

You can avoid costly downtime and damage to your expensive circuitry. Compressed Air Australia offers EXAIR's Cabinet Cooler® Systems that dependably cool and purge your electrical enclosures. They convert an ordinary supply of compressed air into clean, cold -7°C (20°F) air. Cabinet Coolers are a permanent solution that mount in minutes through an ordinary electrical knockout. There are no moving parts to wear out and no worries about water, oil and contaminants making it into the electrical enclosure. Thermostat control minimises compressed air use.
