Background and textureCustom thermal solutions that utilize unique technology such as air-to-water heat exchangers and more provide optimal application cooling through consideration of a number of parameters. It is true that we have moved past one-size-fits-all solutions and are upon an age of personalization, and as such, many companies must take this movement into consideration. Still, this does not mean that certain factors are givens, and standards must be adhered to. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX will take a look at the way that certain guidelines play a factor in optimal NEMA 12 enclosure cooling.

The Need for Standards

It is one thing to ensure a technological application is able to withstand consistent use and avoid overheating. It is completely different, however, to accomplish this task in a safe and effective manner. In fact, the ends do not always justify the means when it comes to safety, and for this reason, standards are set in place.

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) is responsible for defining standards for a number of different industrial electrical enclosures used in North America. These standards define certain specifications that must be adhered to and met in order to qualify as a safe and quality thermal management solution. The team at Noren products takes these standards very seriously, and ensures that our various heat exchangers and products not only meet these specifications but exceed them in a number of cases. For more information about this process, please reach out to a member of our team today.

How Specifications result in Quality Products

Taking a look at general-use heat exchangers, the standards set forth for NEMA 12 enclosure cooling tends to apply. These enclosure types are often intended for general-purpose, indoor use. What’s more, they provide protection against falling dirt, dust, and dripping liquids that are non-corrosive. In other words, they protect against falling debris that may increase the chances of starting electrical fires as well as protect against corrosion.

When all of these factors are taken into consideration, the baseline heat exchanger already results in a higher-quality product. From here, our team builds on this baseline concept to address your specific parameters, ultimately resulting in a unique product that addresses your specific needs.
