W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. introduces a membrane media for its line of GORE® Cooling Filters that increases thermal performance while providing strong environmental protection and reliability. The GORE Cooling Filters improve thermal cooling while reducing both capital and operating costs in wireless base stations, MCPAs, base band units, power cabinets, switching systems, and other outdoor electronic enclosures. The benefits of using the GORE Cooling Filter are two-fold — improved cooling efficiency and reduced costs. Constructed with a new membrane technology, the filter improves thermal cooling approximately 20% by allowing higher airflow through the filter. At the same time, the membrane protects the electronic components by preventing fine contaminants such as dirt, dust, and sand from entering the enclosure. By increasing airflow while reducing potential contaminant damage, the GORE Cooling Filter improves overall reliability of telecommunications infrastructure.
