Aerial viewIt is one thing to get the most from your technological application. It is something completely different, however, to do so when it is not at the expense of your working environment or wallet. Indeed, thermal management is a topic that most all industries should be aware of when working with industrial-grade applications, as overheating is the most common threat to your company’s operation. To ensure a standard quality of practice, NEMA standards are enforced in a variety of settings. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX discusses how our team meets these specifications and how we can help you get the most from your devices.

Wastewater and NEMA 4X

Whether you are aware of it or not, not all industries benefit from the same types of machinery. For instance, people working in the oil and gas field are aware that the majority of the extraction process requires harvesting the earth’s crust for natural oil reserves. Keeping in mind the difficulty and hazardous conditions that present when working your way into the earth’s crust, it can be concluded that additional considerations should be made.

The same can be said for those working in wastewater treatment. You see, those working in this field must consider the influence water has on electronics and utilize equipment that is properly design to deflect it. This is where NEMA standards come in to play.

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) is the body in charge of industrial application standards in North America and parts of South America. When looking at wastewater, these standards indicate that an enclosure must be able to protect sensitive electronics from water and other fluids, as well as include a spigot to remove at least 1 GPM of water away from the application.

NEMA 12 General-Purpose Heat Exchangers

Even if your needs are not as specific as those in the wastewater treatment and oil and gas fields, there is still a need for a standard of quality. NEMA has defined parameters set forth for general purpose heat exchangers, which adhere to NEMA 12 guidelines.

The guidelines for NEMA 12 enclosures state that, at a minimum, an electrical enclosure must be able to prevent falling dust, dirt, or debris from entering an enclosure, thus promoting effective internal cooling. To learn more about this process, give our team a call today.
