Water-Tight Enclosures for Food Production and Packaging Applications

Increased concern about product safety has put pressure on food and beverage manufacturers to ensure their equipment is spotlessly clean and contaminant-free. Valuable electronic equipment must be protected from food acids, washdowns, and strong, concentrated chemical solutions.

Stainless steel is often used in processing machinery because it is strong, corrosion resistant and able to stand up to the high heat and humidity found in food processing applications.

Why Choose NEMA 4X Stainless Steel Enclosures

NEMA 4X stainless-steel enclosures are perfect for food production and packaging operations because the material is non-porous, repels bacteria, and is easy to clean. The NEMA 4X rating means the enclosures have a dust-tight and water-tight seal, which protects their contents from particles, splashing water, and hose-direct water from getting inside the enclosure.

Integra’s stainless steel enclosures feature a 0.34” return flange to create a wide sealing face for the polyurethane gasket and a drainage channel to direct water away from the enclosure opening. Additionally, features like concealed hinges, smooth edges and flush door latches create a seamless enclosure surface with minimal opportunities for bacteria to hide.

Because our enclosures meet NEMA 4X standards, they can be used for a wide range of food production and packaging applications including

  • Food Processing
  • Beverage Processing
  • Meat Processing
  • Brewery
  • Dairy
  • Poultry
  • Filling and Packaging

We use state-of-the-art technology and proven designs to create the custom sizes and configurations you need. Because each application is unique, we offer a wide range of modification options, including machined holes for push buttons, disconnect switches, and cables. We also offer add-ons like cord grips, gland plates and windows.

Gland Plates and Windows for Stainless Steel Enclosures

Interchangeable gland plates give you an economical way to use the same enclosure base for multiple hole pattern variations. They can easily be installed depending on which specific connectors need to be connected to the enclosure—all while maintaining the NEMA 4X watertight seal.

Also featuring a NEMA 4X rated seal, our exterior or flush mounted windows provide access to controls without sacrificing protection from hose downs and harsh chemicals, both common in food production and packaging environments.
