The WMAC team at Colorado State University and performed an assessment at a plant that manufactures power supplies from printed circuit boards and electronic components. Through-hole components are attached to the boards using a wave soldering machine. Surface-mounted components are mounted onto the boards which are then combined with cases, frames, and other prefabricated parts to form power supplies. The assessment team's report, detailing findings and recommendations, indicated that waste cooling water is generated in large quantities in the testing and burn-in-area, and that significant cost savings could be achieved through the installation of a closed-loop cooling system.
