As you may be aware, not all technological applications are created equally, and many are designed with industry-specific functions in mind. After all, the equipment used for mold cooling purposes is going to be far different from enclosures used in an Oil & Gas setting. What’s more, the purpose is not the only key identifier, as factors such as environment, space allotted, and even industry needs must be considered when attempting to optimize your equipment. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX is going to take a look at these concepts with respect to wastewater treatment, and explain how adhering to standards can optimize NEMA 4X enclosure cooling.
When considering thermal management capabilities for a variety of industries, the environment plays a major role. For instance, removing waste heat from electrical enclosures within a wastewater plant setting can become more complex as factors such as humidity and moist air can certainly complicate function. Because of situations such as this and similar, creating applications with industry-wide standards in mind can help ensure the quality of a device.
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) is responsible for defining standards used in a variety of industrial-grade electrical enclosures throughout North America. These help companies identify what applications or accessories are most appropriate for their line of work, and this process also helps establish a baseline need to be met. To learn more about this process, reach out to a member of our team today.
Understanding Your Needs
With respect to the wastewater industry, an ideal application will adhere to NEMA 4X enclosure standards. This means that the application itself must be watertight and exclude, at a minimum, 65 gallons per minute of water from a 1-inch nozzle. It also includes additional corrosion resistance to protect equipment from the effects of oxidation and more.
To best adhere to your needs, our team takes the time to gain a thorough understanding of your unique parameters as well as potential obstacles to achieving optimal NEMA 4X enclosure cooling. What’s more, we want your thermal management solution to not only effectively prevent overheating in your equipment, but do so in a way that promotes optimal function, production, and output, as needed. For more information about this process, reach out to a representative from our team.
Optimal Function and Performance
Ensuring your electrical enclosures function optimally can seem like a daunting task to take on, as there are more factors than you might expect that impact performance. This is where our team comes in to help, however, as we utilize a concept known as collaborative engineering to give you an active role in the creation of your product from start to finish.
