The Best Way to Cool a NEMA-Certified Enclosure

In general, maintaining the integrity of the air inside of an electrical enclosure is vital to preventing contamination and the hazards it can cause. For many applications, however, it’s more than good sense—it’s a requirement under safety regulations provided by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA). To meet those regulations, electrical enclosures that operate in areas where the risks of contamination or other environmental hazards are high often rely on Noren’s line of specially certified heat exchangers. Combining decades of experience in thermal management with advanced design and manufacturing capabilities, Noren’s NEMA-class thermal management solutions can offer the most effective way to cool enclosures in hazardous areas.

Better System Integrity with Heat Exchangers

Heat exchangers are designed with several main focuses in mind, all of which are aimed at helping electrical enclosures of all types operate at optimal efficiency. They offer low-cost, highly reliable methods of managing electrical waste heat without the need for cumbersome, complicated air conditioning equipment. Where safety is concerned, however, one of the most significant benefits is the ability to keep an electrical enclosure safely sealed against elements in the environment, including moisture that could lead to erosion or dust that damage sensitive components.

In particularly hazardous locations, such as in oil and gas manufacturing, the contaminants in the air can also prove disastrous if allowed to enter an electrical enclosure. Flammable liquids, combustible gases, and even certain types of powder and bulk must be kept securely out of enclosures where electrical equipment is housed. Because of this, such enclosures must adhere to strict NEMA standards, which Noren’s Hazloc line of heat exchangers are designed specifically to meet.
