Understanding the Essentials of RAIL Thermal Management
Aviation data company FlightAware estimates that there is an average of 9,728 planes carrying 1.27 million people in the air at any given moment. That being said, RAIL power products are an essential safety component for any electrical application or industry. Electrical hazards lead to more than 300 deaths and 4,000 injuries among U.S. workers every year, and understanding the safety basics of RAIL power products can help you practice safe habits in the workplace and prevent incidents. Here’s a quick rundown of the basics of RAIL thermal management.
First, RAIL power products such as the Fyrejacket Aerospace are ideal for preventing temperature-related hazards and accidents. They provide protection from heat, which is critical in many applications. For example, at the typical cruising altitude of 35,000 feet, the air pressure drops by more than 75%; the outside temperature drops to negative 60 degrees Fahrenheit. RAIL power products should be able to handle intense pressure and temperature changes, which thickwall braided fiberglass sleeving helps to do.
RAIL power products typically have a silicone rubber coating that provides additional temperature and pressure protection. A heavy duty silicone rubber coating can protect cables from exposure up to temperatures of 500 degrees Fahrenheit. They also provide intense resistance to hydraulic fluids for maximum safety. Keep in mind that an overcurrent occurs in an electrical circuit when the normal load current is exceeded. There are two basic forms of overcurrents: overloads and short circuits. The use of fuses and circuits breakers protect workers, consumers, and equipment when dangerous overcurrents occur. Fortunately, the right RAIL power products and silicone sleeving can virtually eliminate these dangerous risks.
When searching for the right RAIL power products, remember how to judge a circuit breaker’s rating as well:
a 100% rated circuit breaker is intended for continuous operation at 100% of its marked rating, meaning it will carry 100% of the rated current without overheating or tripping.
Currently, electrocution is the sixth leading cause of workplace deaths in America. Understanding these essentials of RAIL power products can help you make the best decisions for your electrical industry needs.
