Hygienic enclosure for large control systems

20 May 2018

Rittal’s Hygienic Design System enclosures combine the features of its Hygienic Design Compact enclosures with a modular, bayable configuration to provide a flexible and hygienic solution that protects installed electrical and electronic equipment, even in washdown areas. 

The addition of standard accessories from Rittal’s TS 8 range; the flexibility afforded by baying; and the ability to swap the door handles, is said to provide a solution that can be tailored to suit even complex control systems in production clean rooms.

The Hygienic Design System enclosure eliminates dead space and dirt traps to help reduce the risk of both direct and indirect cross-contamination. 

Features that help improve hygiene levels include:
• Hinge and lock components located inside the seal face
• Internally secured sloped roof and side panels
• Blue-dyed silicone seals
• Special protruding lock inserts
• Hygienically designed accessories, including glands, levelling feet and viewing window

The lack of dead space and dirt traps makes cleaning easier and the roof is angled at 30 degrees with all being at least finger-sized. With an ingress protection category of IP 59K the enclosure can protect equipment from dust, dirt, and high-temperature and high-pressure water jets.

By making cleaning easier, and better protecting electrical and electronic components the enclosure can help to reduce both scheduled and unplanned, downtime.
