August 26, 2015 - AutomationDirect adds Stratus enclosure vortex coolers that provide compressed air cooling where conventional enclosure cooling by air conditioners or heat exchangers is not possible.
The all stainless steel vortex coolers have cooling capacities from 500 to 2,500 BTUH. If cooling capacity needs to change, a user does not need to replace the entire unit; available replacement generators will fit any of the Stratus vortex coolers. Mountable in a ¾-inch electrical conduit knockout, the vortex coolers’ compact physical size contains no moving parts, requiring virtually no maintenance.
They also feature relief valves and seals built-in, enabling the units to maintain the sealed nature of NEMA 4, NEMA 4X and NEMA 12 enclosures. Clean, dry, oil-free compressed air cooling, creates cool air without the use of refrigerants; therefore, there is no Freon, CFCs or HCFCs to pollute the environment. Priced at $270.00, Stratus vortex coolers are backed with a five-year warranty.
