A range of stainless steel push-button enclosures is available for hygienic applications from Powell Electronics
The Hammond Manufacturing HYPB range of IP69/IP69K stainless steel push-button enclosures is now available for use in hygienic applications. The enclosures can be used in control, testing or other applications where maintaining hygiene standards and avoiding contamination are of high importance, such as in food processing and pharmaceutical manufacturing. The range has been designed for use with similar pushbuttons and can withstand regular high temperatures as well as regular high pressure wash-downs. They also have no areas (like slotted screw heads, quarter turn latches or welded mounting brackets) where contaminants can gather and all sides slope to ensure any water quickly drains off.
Available with 22.5mm and 30.5mm holes with either a single row of one, two, three or four mounting holes, two rows with four holes arranged in two rows of two or two rows with six holes arranged in two rows of three, HYPB series push-button enclosures benefit from a rectangular design enabling the units to be surface mounted either vertically or horizontally to suit most applications. The cover is secured to the body with crevice-free hex head bolts fitted with a silicone washer to eliminate potential dirt traps. The blue “hygiene” coloured silicone gasket makes any contaminants more visible and is fitted beyond the door edges, so that there are no crevices in which dirt can collect.
