Protect Yourself From the Environment with the Proper Enclosure
Author: Revere Electric
Over the course of the last few months, we have all been drawn to the devastation that has occurred due to the hurricanes. While we live in the Midwest and don’t typically have to worry about hurricanes; we do have customers that reside in these areas and we also have our own internal and external environmental conditions where protection is needed.
One easy solution that protects electrical equipment from liquid, solid and corrosive resistance is the use of the proper type of enclosure. A standard NEMA 12 enclosure will resist splashing water, but not water under pressure. A NEMA 4/4X enclosure will protect the components inside an enclosure. A NEMA 4X enclosure, made from stainless steel, will provide a high level of corrosion resistance and would be a perfect solution where salt water is involved.
When it comes to enclosures, Hoffman has a wide range of product offerings to safely house electrical systems and electronic components in environments subject to potentially hazardous atmospheres created by vapor or dust, corrosive conditions and condensation, humidity, high internal and external temperatures, and weather extremes.
Some of the industries that Hoffman specializes in include:
• Onshore and offshore oil and gas
• Chemical and petrochemical
• Pulping and paper plants
• Grain processing and storage
