    Considering putting my DOS inside an enclosed cabinet with my EB8's and other Apex modules. Before doing this, I want to be sure that the DOS doesn't put off any heat. I don't plan on running it continuously or under any stress as it will be dosing 2-part.

    Thanks!

    You'll be just fine with the DOS pumps (not generating any more heat) and they are top notch dosing pumps.

    You could always add an air opening in the back of your cabinet if need be.
