Popular Corrosion Resistant Enclosures Now Available as IP66
To complement the IP68 Corrosion and Impact Resistant enclosure series that was launched last year, Deltron Enclosures has now introduced an IP66 version of the popular range.
Manufactured from GD-AlSi12, the enclosures are ideal for demanding environments where high levels of electrolytes or corrosive substances are present, requiring greater corrosion resistance than standard aluminium could offer.
“Since launching the IP68 range in August 2016, we have seen demand increase month-on month as engineers search for an enclosure that offers a longer lifespan”, commented Tom Downing, Product Manager at Deltron Enclosures. “Tests show that, unlike other aluminium enclosures, the coating is not essential to preventing corrosion, so minor scratches will not reduce the lifespan; this is a particularly useful feature in a heavy duty enclosure.”
The heavy duty enclosures provide enhanced resistance of up to 1000 hours in salt spray, combined with high impact resistance of 7 joules whilst maintaining an IP66 rating. They are also finished with an aesthetically pleasing powder coating using epoxy-polyester (hybrid) with a controlled layer thickness, offering added resistance to chipping. The textured coating is grey as standard, but black or red can also be requested.
These housings can be incorporated in the application design for many harsh environments including marine, water treatment, buried applications such as telecoms or mining, plus refuse trucks and road sweepers as well as other specialist vehicles and more.
