Stainless steel enclosures in enhanced 316 Grade material

Hammond Manufacturing upgrades enclosure materials to improve corrosion resistance and durability in aggressive chemical environments.

06/15/2011


Hammond Manufacturing’s Eclipse Junior (EJ Series) enclosure series is now available in 316 Grade stainless steel material, which offers increased corrosion resistance, making the units particularly suitable for installation in aggressive chemical areas. The upgrade will also benefit other industries such as the marine, food processing, paper, mining, pharmaceutical and petroleum sectors. The EJ Series is also available in the traditional 304 Grade stainless steel for applications where the superior properties of 316 are not required.

Designed for use as instrument enclosures, electric, hydraulic or pneumatic control housings, electrical junction boxes or terminal wiring enclosures, the EJ Series is UL 508 Type 3R, 4, 4X, 12 and 13 and CSA Type 3R, 4, 4X, 12, and 13 approved, confirming protection where equipment may be hosed down or otherwise be very wet. The design features a formed lip around the door aperture to prevent liquids entering the enclosure, a continuous foam gasket provides an excellent seal and an easy to open/close quarter turn latching system secures the door to prevent unauthorized access without a tool.

The EJ316 family is available in 10 sizes ranging from 6 inches x 4 inches, 150 mm x 100 mm, to 16 in. x 14 in., 400 mm x 350 mm. The EJ Series is provided with an inner panel, tapped inner panel mounting studs and ground studs as standard; dedicated accessories such as filter fans, breather kits, windows and additional inner panels are also available.
