Meltric (Franklin, WI) has introduced the Technor SB Series 316 Stainless Steel Enclosures, a durable IP-66/67 rated enclosure that meets UL, ATEX and IECEx standards for use in explosive environments. The enclosure’s stainless steel surfaces have been acid-treated to withstand corrosion. They are rated for use in environments with ambient temperatures ranging from -50°C to +60°C (ATEX), -50°C to +95°C (IECEx) and 40°C to +40°C (UL). They can be ordered empty or as a complete customized control panel per customer specifications. Over twenty standard sizes are available.
The enclosures are ideal for use in hazardous locations such as oil & gas, chemical, agricultural, energy, transportation, pharmaceutical, and mining facilities where fire or explosion hazards may exist due to flammable gases, flammable liquid–produced vapors, combustible liquid–produced vapors, and combustible dusts present in the atmosphere in quantities large enough to cause explosive or ignitable mixtures. Numerous options are available, including with/without hinges and doors, side gland plates, breather drains, viewing windows, ground studs, internal mounting plates, traffolyte or stainless steel tag & certification labels, and alternate material thicknesses.
