NEMA Standards For Wastewater Tools

Modern urban wastewater treatment plantIt goes without saying that every industry contains its own unique set of needs and operations. After all, you would not expect those who work with plastic molds to have the same exact responsibilities and job duties as those who work in the oil and gas field. Indeed, because there is great variation in the purpose of function, this leads to a reasonable demand for different methods of thermal management. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX  takes an in-depth look at the benefits of NEMA standards and guidelines for industrial applications, and how wastewater equipment can benefit from these standards.

Understanding Standards

Though most industrial applications require some form of thermal management capabilities, there are a number of obstacles that may get in the way of finding a solution that is right for your team. Indeed, many companies tout the ability to provide rapid application cooling, but there are also many that do so at the expense of your wallet and/or the environment. As such, having a go-to list of standards that help guide the creation of custom solutions serves a valuable purpose.

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has created and defined a set of standards that are used in various grades of electrical enclosures across North America. When looking at the list, we see that each one details specifiers that it protects against, essentially helping to guide companies in the direction of their unique needs.

More specifically, wastewater applications require sources of temperature regulation and protection against debris unique to those types of environments. To accomplish this, most ideal heat exchangers and accessories are designed with NEMA 4X enclosure cooling standards in mind. To learn more about this process, reach out to our team today.

Working with Wastewater Applications

Custom solutions offer a variety of benefits, including the ability to provide protection against application-specific concerns. For example, NEMA 4X enclosure cooling also considers protection from water damage, ensuring that your enclosure is water-tight. Further, 4X models include additional corrosion protection so that you can ensure you are getting the most from your applications without fear of overheating, damage, and more.

Optimal Results

It is one thing to protect applications from dust, debris, and other falling concerns. It is completely different, however, to do so in a manner that optimizes your functional capabilities. Indeed, our team works closely with you so that we can ensure your thermal management capabilities not only protect your devices but make for better performance and overall quality.
