Hygienic enclosure solution for large control systems

03 June 2018

Rittal’s Hygienic Design System enclosures combines the features of its Hygienic Design Compact enclosures with a modular, bayable configuration, to deliver 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 provides 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, which reduces 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; protruding lock inserts; and hygienically designed accessories including glands, levelling feet and viewing window.

The lack of dead space and dirt traps is said to make cleaning easier because the roof is angled at 30 degrees and all gaps are at least finger-sized.

The enclosure has an ingress protection category of IP 59K so is able to shield installed equipment from dust, dirt, and high-temperature water jets during production and cleaning, even in washdown areas.
