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 ...

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...


Axair Adaptors Help Panel Builders Get Ahead

With the UK recession causing an intense increase in market competition, many control panel builders tried to get ahead by reducing stock levels and adapting standard products to meet customer requirements. Despite reducing costs, streamlining the range of designs available has somewhat obvious limitations. Even with modification, customers can be restricted when it comes to specific requirements such as temperature control or prerequisites on space. Thanks to our partnership with Italian experts, Fandis, Axair Fans can offer panel builde...


Eradicating Enclosure Condensation – What’s The Secret?

Condensation in enclosures can cause housed electrical components to fail prematurely. The simple way to eliminate this is to keep your enclosure temperature as little as 5 degrees higher than the ambient temp. By running your enclosures at 65% relative humidity, condensation is much less likely to form.  A regulator from the Fandis thermal management range will help you to achieve this and will safeguard your components from the problems caused by fluctuating temperatures. Axair are the exclusive UK supplier of Fandis regulators and acces...

Not only will you reap the benefits of not having to buy, install and operate two devices, other advantages of using the bi-metallic twin thermostat include a reduction in temperature fluctuations, a reduc...


Another Arrival In Our EC Family

The number of EC technology fans that we can offer is growing all the time and we have now added an 80x80x38mm frame axial fan to our portfolio of energy saving wonders. Lots has been written about the advantages of choosing EC over AC  and this model is no different, benefitting from the integrated AC to DC converter and a permanent magnet motor (PMM). In comparing the EC model with the AC equivalent, the EC comfortably comes out on top, with fantastic performance and maximum efficiency. Not only does the EC fan provide 70% more air (68...


Italian Fans Help Keep Pope On Air

Almost 400,000 people have been known to flock to the Vatican City in Rome during the election of a new Pope. With that many people all vying for a look at one man, in 2007 the Vatican took the somewhat inevitable step of installing a number of large plasma screens in the city’s St. Peter’s Square region. The screens have become a permanent fixture in the square, broadcasting the Pope’s weekly address and his Sunday prayers. With some of these events lasting almost 4 hours, it’s important that these screens don’t overheat in the Ita...


Thinking Inside the Box

Off-the-shelf solutions are often subject to limitations. Our customers regularly require customised solutions involving bespoke products, configurations and combinations. Recently, we were approached by a customer with a requirement to cool an enclosure cabinet with a maximum operating temperature of 68°C. Standard fan filter units struggle at temperatures above 55°C. Our customer specified that the cabinet must remain negatively pressurised; therefore reversing their existing system was not an option. As an alternative solution we de...
