Free Cooling in the desert - why even try?

Applying ambient air cooling in a climate with extremely hot temperatures and a constantly high level of sand in the air, well it sounds both ridiculous and cost-intensive. Why even try?

Because free cooling is the most energy-efficient cooling method and the highest savings generator within electronics cooling.

That is why Dantherm has developed this electronics cooling solution, which utilizes the advantages of free cooling and protects the shelter from sand intrusion at the same time: Dantherm Flexibox Free Cooling with AirMaze (pat.pend.) air inlet protection.
