Thermal efficiency is a paramount consideration when choosing enclosures to protect outdoor instrumentation and control equipment in extremely cold locations. INTERTEC can provide optimal enclosure solutions to protect equipment even in extremely low temperatures.
Compared with metal, the very high thermal resistance and insulation levels of INTERTEC's composite GRP construction materials means that housings can be configured to cope with temperature extremes. GRP also remains stable down to -100º C/-148° F, i.e. the shape or dimensions hardly change even at these extremely cold temperatures, which means that no gaps occur in doors or lids. The structural integrity of other materials can withstand these cryogenic temperatures only to a limited extent. And GRP is highly resistant to the corrosive effects of sulphur from oil or gas media, and chlorine in seawater.
Heating enclosures is a further challenge. INTERTEC simplifies the design of enclosure solutions by verifying the performance of its explosion-proof heaters and controllers up to an ambient temperature of -60º C, in addition to certifying them based on global standards. We provide enclosures fitted with optimal heating solutions for your specific application.
