EIC Solutions, Inc., a leading manufacturer of thermoelectric air conditioners, electronic enclosures and transit cases, has introduced a line of filter fans which provide an effective, economical method for removing unwanted heat from electrical/electronic enclosures and cabinets. The VFF Series Filter Fans provide forced convection cooling for computers, power distribution equipment, industrial automation controls, food and beverage process controls, telecom communication and other electrical and electronic devices housed in enclosures. The fans may be used anywhere filtered ambient air will provide sufficient cooling to maintain the equipment at a safe temperature. Electrical and electronic equipment mounted inside a cabinet generate heat that raises the temperature inside the enclosure. Over time, the ever increasing heat can cause sensitive devices to malfunction or fail. Additionally, heat accumulation can cause circuit breakers to trip which can result in system shut down. To assure operational reliability and a long service life for enclosed electrical/electronic systems, it is necessary to dissipate the heat building up inside the enclosure.
A major manufacturing facility was in need of a cooling solution for their enclosed variable frequency multi-geared drives. The multi-gear drives were exposed to debris in the adverse conditions of the factory, which was causing the bearings to clog.
