Enclosure options and accessories - specifications and features

INTERTEC has developed a huge range of fabrication options and accessories to optimize the performance of enclosures and sun shades in different climatic conditions, and make the safe installation of instruments easy and effective. Here are a few of the major options available:

Enclosure/shelter specifications Instrument installation options
Antistatic protection Any INTERTEC enclosure, cabinet or shelter can be specified in antistatic form for use in hazardous areas, to meet the European IEC 60079 standard. The basic GRP fabrication material is treated with a conductive powder to ensure that any potential will dissipate.

Windows (US): single or double glazed windows can be fitted as desired, to suit the installed equipment and allow inspection without opening the enclosure/cabinet and disturbing the heat regulation process.

Fire protection
INTERTEC uses only fire retardant GRP (having so-called 'self extinguishing' properties) that limits flame spread. By employing sandwich constructions of GRP around cores of mineral wool or other materials, fire resistances of up to 120 minutes can be achieved. See fire protection.
A family of modular parts for mounting instruments on walls, floors or pipes.
Arctic Insulation
GRP is itself is a heat insulating material. A polypropylene liner is fitted as standard. For extreme climates, an aluminium sheet liner can optionally be fitted to reflect heat.
Insulated entry/exit:
For cold climates or applications where temperature regulation is critical, INTERTEC offers ISOPASS mouldings made of hard polyurethane foam, which is easily adapted for the particular size of impulse lines. A stronger GRP version is available for handling tube bundles.

Special grommets also available for sealing standard tube/pipe applications.

Heat tracing and tube bundles are also available, plus shrink sleeves.

Protection Class
INTERTEC enclosures are available in the standard Protection Class IP65 or as option in IP66, IP67 or IP68. The enclosure types MULTIBOX und DIABOX are also approved as Enclosure Type 4X to NEMA.
Vents and drains:
Intelligent positioning of vents and drains (US) are important, to avoid 'water pump' effects, condensation, or concentration of hazardous gases/fluids (that can result from very small-scale valve leakage over time).
MSW mounting system
Swing frame for 19-inch racks:
This hinged frame (US) for industry-standard 19-inch compatible racks/subracks swings out, making it easy to install and access field-based electronics equipment.

There are many more options including sunshades, pipe stands, gas struts or lid props, insulating pipe adapters, choice of mounts, hinges, clasps, ground fixings
