Other than the compressor not always needing to run, is it me or does this just sound like a typical evaporation refridgeration chilling system?

Googing around a bit it seems like adding the compressor to make it like a powered unit is the change from just a heat pipe that is typically the only cooling device.

I don't know of heat pipes being common in industrial enclosures. Heat exchangers are common, as are conventional air conditioners.
