Thermal Edge Publishes Troubleshooting Guide to Inefficient Fans

Leading Manufacturer of Temperature Control Units Details Challenges of Effective Enclosure Cooling

IRVING, TX--(Marketwired - November 01, 2016) - Thermal Edge, Inc., a leading manufacturer of temperature control units for electrical enclosures, announced today it is publishing a guide detailing the challenges of using fans to cool equipment enclosures. The e-book, Guide to Troubleshooting Inefficient Cooling Fans, is available for free download at

Most modern electrical enclosures are fitted with cooling systems in order to remove heat generated by interior equipment. Low-cost cooling fans are a popular choice for ventilating these enclosures; however, some installations are not particularly effective -- especially in hot weather. Issues such as nuisance tripping, unexpected equipment failure, and hot spots can usually be resolved if the prerequisites for effective enclosure cooling are understood. Thermal Edge's new e-book details why efficient cooling reduces maintenance time and improves operations, and explores key factors to why a fan my not be optimally performing. Features of the guide include:

  • Four key attributes of enclosure cooling
  • Four symptoms of poor enclosure cooling
  • Tips on how to troubleshoot fans and improve performance
  • Five scenarios in which cooling fans are not the best option for enclosures, and details about two alternative cooling solutions

"Ineffective enclosure cooling can be problematic for companies that rely upon uninterrupted operation of vital electrical equipment," says Andy Cohen, President of Thermal Edge, Inc. "In many instances, corrective maintenance simply fixes a problem. However, other situations in which there is an imbalance between the enclosure heat load and fan cooling capacity may necessitate an upgraded cooling solution. Our new guide describes the challenges companies may face with their cooling fans and details alternatives that might be a better option for their enclosures."
