New range of innovative stainless steel enclosures

February 2017 Enclosures, Cabling & Connectors

Elen Enclosures has, since its inception in 1982, constantly sought ways of expanding the level of quality, service, innovation and product selection available to customers. The enclosure specialist of 35 years recently sourced a new and comprehensive range of 304L and 316L stainless steel enclosures from ETA Spa, a highly reputable European manufacturer, and at very attractive prices.

The backbone of the supply program is the ECOR range of wall mounting enclosures, comprising 25 sizes of single door enclosures ranging from 300x200x150 mm to 1200x800x300 mm and two double door enclosures of 1000x1000x300 mm and 1200x1000x300 mm. The enclosures are made from 1,5 mm thick laser-welded bodies with gutter profiled opening and doors with formed corners. The enclosures are certified to IP66 sealing for single-door and IP55 for double-door.

Innovative gasket technology

The range introduces a major innovation in enclosure technology through an in-situ formed two-component silicone compound door gasket. The gasket is resistant to the majority of aggressive chemicals and has a temperature resistance from -50 to +200°C, as opposed to the 120°C of polyurethane gaskets, which are currently the industry norm. These properties greatly widen the range of environments in which the enclosures can be used, i.e. from refrigeration plants to steel works and foundries as well as in the harshest industrial environments (such as chemical plants, refineries, water and sewage treatments, and paper, pulp and textile industries). Stainless enclosures are particularly suited for use in dairies, breweries, beverage and food processing plants, and pharmaceutical industries. The choice of grades 304L or 316L offers solutions for severe climatic conditions as encountered in in-/off-shore marine environments or desert conditions.

2,5 mm thick galvanised chassis plates are supplied as standard and a wide variety of accessories such as rain canopies, internal doors, distribution board chassis, plinths etc. are available. The enclosures have a brushed satin finish and are supplied with easily removable protective plastic film to protect against scratches and scuffs during delivery or machining.

IS applications

The ECOR supply program is further expanded by a range of 20 enclosures (from 300x200x 150 mm to 1200x800x300 mm) complying with ATEX directive and conforming to Ex II 2GD,

Ex e II T6 and Ex td A21 T85°C for use in applications requiring increased or intrinsic safety. The ATEX-approved range is supplied with a continuously-formed polyurethane door gasket. Elen has assembly facilities highly experienced in the production of junction boxes certified for use in classified hazardous areas, as well as standard applications.

The ECOR range of wall mounted enclosures is complemented by a wide variety of other stainless steel products such as EMOX monobloc floor-standing cabinets, ENUX modular suite cabinets, EGRAN terminal boxes, SHX pushbutton boxes, ECOR sloped roof enclosures and ZBX control desks.

It is Elen’s aim is to become the No.1 supplier of stainless steel enclosures in South Africa. It has acquired the Southern Africa agency for all ETA products, which also include mild steel enclosures, cabinets and control desks.
