Floor-mounted and Freestanding Stainless Steel Enclosures

May 23, 2012

Hammond Manufacturing offers a number of versions of floor-mounted and freestanding stainless steel enclosures designed to house electrical, electronic, hydraulic or pneumatic controls and instruments. The units will typically be installed in oil and gas facilities, water treatment plants, food manufacturing plants, pharmaceutical production and other industries where equipment may be hosed down or otherwise be very wet, or in applications where corrosion is a serious problem. Hammond’s 1418, 1422 and the HN4SS series are all manufactured from 304 or 316 grade stainless steel with a smooth brushed finish. All seams are continuously welded and ground smooth and the units are sealed to NEMA 4X rating. All units include heavy-duty stainless steel lifting eyes. Doors are mounted on continuous hinges and sealed with a seamless poured-in-place gasket. Users have a choice of closure options, traditional clamp covers can be specified for applications where access to the inside is not regularly required or three point locking handles or quarter turn fasteners are available when the doors need to be frequently opened. The enclosures are available from stock in a wide range of heights, widths and depths.
