FLL Series LED Enclosure Lights

Usually, when we discuss enclosures we highlight the importance of effective heat dissipation and thermal management to prevent the premature failure of equipment housed within the cabinet. This usually means using a fan filter unit or associated thermostats or anti condensation heaters respectively, but Axair Fans are excited to launch a brand new set of accessories to our portfolio - our LED Enclosure Lights. All enclosures or electrical cabinets require regular maintenance and it's common for these units to be tucked away in a convenient ...


Ultra Durable Filter Media For Fan Filter Units

Axair supply a wide range of thermal components, fan filter units & filter media to facilitate enclosure cooling and cabinet ventilation. A fan filter is used to dissipate heat within an enclosure or cabinet, preventing the premature failure of the equipment inside it. The most common method is to pull the warm air out (reverse flow) near the top using a fan filter while cooler air is drawn in through a stand alone filter at the bottom of the cabinet. Both fan filter and filter provide protection to IP54 and prevent the ingress of...


Cabinet Cooling For Outdoor Electrical Enclosures

Outdoor electrical enclosures can be found almost everywhere you go. Containing expensive equipment, these units are exposed to extreme weather conditions; from high ambient temperatures in Summer to a risk of condensation occurring as the temperatures drop in the Winter seasons. The effects of solar radiation are also evident given the hours that the enclosure is in the direct sunlight. Electrical equipment used within outdoor enclosures is generally very durable and robust, although not all can tolerate the extremes that the conditions of ...

Condensation Control In Electrical Enclosures

Electrical enclosures are used to protect delicate electronic equipment from water and dust but also for safety. As the components inside the enclosure are live, they need protection to prevent electrical shocks. Condensation, caused by warm moist air coming into contact with cooler surfaces causes electrical equipment housed within enclosures to fail prematurely. Condensation will only form at, or close to Dew point (65% humidity), but oxidation / rusting can take place at medium levels of relative humidity at 60% depending on the type and ...


Cost Effective Cooling Using An Enclosure Thermostat

The humble central heating thermostat has caused many an argument in most households across the land, it’s a device that my wife turns up and that I all too frequently have to covertly turn down. Turning the dial down just a little can save me money, leaving the dial where it is saves my marriage. Keeping a happy household is important, keeping components and equipment in an electrical control panel or enclosure contented, is equally important. Although a control panel will never take your dog and DVD collection it will cause you headaches...

Enclosure Ventilation – An Axair Guide to Power Electronics Cooling

Fan filter kits have been in use for around 20 years and are now considered ‘part of the scenery’ and a commodity product. Their function has not changed, they are still as useful as ever; however,  if the wrong product is selected, the whole control cabinet may overheat and compromise not only the value of the equipment it contains but also the panel’s primary function, powering a whole process plant, shopping centre or datacentre, for example. The impact of this could be catastrophic so it pays to seek advice and assistance when select...


Cabinet Cooling Project Proves Axair Knowledge is Power

Bespoke solutions don’t always have to involve bespoke products. Sometimes, the best solution can be found by using standard products but applying them in an unconventional manner.  Axair regularly fulfil customer requirements in this way; a recent example being a project we supported for a well-known control systems company with some very specific enclosure cooling requirements. The enclosure in question was generating 11 kW of heat; they were attempting to dissipate the British Standard, BS60439, which specifies that the temperature out...
