Thermal Edge Publishes Guide to Enclosure Cooling for Water Treatment Plants

Leading Manufacturer of Temperature Control Units Provides Advice for Protecting Electrical, Mechanical Equipment

IRVING, TX--(Marketwired - June 06, 2016) - Thermal Edge, Inc., a leading manufacturer of temperature control units for electrical enclosures, announced today it is publishing a guide to choosing and maintaining cooling equipment for electrical enclosures at water treatment plants. The e-book, The Ultimate Guide to Enclosure Cooling for Water Treatment, is available for free download at

Electrical equipment that is used to operate water and wastewater treatment facilities must be protected from excess heat, which may affect its performance, reliability, and lifespan. Such equipment must also be shielded from the harsh conditions commonly found in these locations. Choosing the right enclosure cooling solution, sizing it correctly, and maintaining it properly will protect valuable water treatment equipment, save money, reduce downtime, and, ultimately, ensure the safety and quality of clean water flowing from the plant. Thermal Edge's new e-book offers advice on how to select the correct enclosures for a plant's needs. Among the guide's features:

  • Details on why enclosure cooling is so important for water treatment equipment
  • A description of the NEMA 4X enclosure design that is the preferred standard for electrical equipment used at water treatment plants
  • Advice on choosing an open-loop or closed-loop cooling system
  • Five steps to take when sizing a cooling system
  • A cooling system maintenance checklist and troubleshooting guide

"Water treatment facilities must continuously run at peak efficiency; they can't afford down time from equipment failure caused by overheating and the elements," says Andy Cohen, President of Thermal Edge, Inc. "Enclosures for a plant's electrical equipment require a cooling system that will maintain the interior temperature at or below the maximum allowable operating temperature for each component. Our new e-book helps managers and engineers select enclosures that will protect important electrical and mechanical assets from the harsh conditions inherent to a water treatment plant."
