1 PENTAIR HOFFMAN ® 1 INTRODUCTION Purpose Understand electrical enclosure materials Objectives Learn about available electrical enclosure construction materials Understand the factors used to select the proper enclosure material Understand the tradeoffs between various materials & their performance impacts Learning Time 15 minutes

2 PENTAIR HOFFMAN ® PROTECT FROM THE ELEMENTS 2 Industrial automation equipment can be used in almost any environment imaginable. Enclosures must protect these items from harmful elements to extend their life and prevent expensive operations downtime.

3 PENTAIR HOFFMAN ® INDUSTRIAL ENCLOSURE MATERIAL TYPES Different materials affect enclosure performance MATERIALRATINGSINDOOR/ OUTDOORTYPICAL APPLICATIONS METALS MILD STEEL TYPES 1, 12, 3R, 4 IP20/30/54/55 Indoor Outdoor non-corrosive Industrial & commercial applications 304 STAINLESS STEEL TYPE 4X IP66/69K Indoor/OutdoorFood & Beverage 316L STAINLESS STEEL TYPE 4X IP66/69K Indoor/OutdoorOil & gas, especially offshore oil platforms ALUMINUM TYPE 4X IP66 OutdoorTelecommunications NON- METALLICS POLY- CARBONATE TYPE 4X IP66 Indoor/OutdoorElectronics & instrumentation ABS NEMA 4X (NON- UL) IP66 Indoor/OutdoorElectronics & instrumentation POLYESTER TYPE 4X IP66 OutdoorWater treatment facilities FIBERGLASS TYPE 4X IP66 OutdoorOil & gas 3

4 PENTAIR HOFFMAN ® FACTORS IN DETERMINING ENCLOSURE MATERIALS Environmental considerations Chemical resistance Heat absorption & dissipation Flexibility & ability to modify Impact resistance & material strength Weight considerations Aesthetics Purchase price Many factors to consider 4

5 PENTAIR HOFFMAN ® ENVIRONMENTAL CONSIDERATIONS Environmental ratings a primary factor in material selection TYPE 1TYPE 12TYPE 3R TYPE 4 TYPE 4X IP20/IP30IP54/55 IP66 IP69K MILD STEEL MILD STEEL MODULAR STAINLESS STEEL NON-METALLIC ALUMINUM 5

6 PENTAIR HOFFMAN ® Hoffman has tested these materials extensively CHEMICAL RESISTANCE SOLVENTSALKALISACIDS RECOMMENDED 304 STAINLESS STEEL 316 STAINLESS STEEL FIBERGLASS ALUMINUM POLYESTER 304 STAINLESS STEEL ABS POLYESTER 304 STAINLESS STEEL 316 STAINLESS STEEL ABS POLYESTER POLYCARBONATE SATISFACTORY MILD STEEL (PAINTED) POLYCARBONATE ABS 316 STAINLESS STEEL POLYCARBONATE FIBERGLASS LIMITED USE MILD STEEL (PAINTED) ALUMINUM MILD STEEL (PAINTED) ALUMINUM 6 Click here to access the Chemical Resistance chart

7 PENTAIR HOFFMAN ® HEAT ABSORPTION & DISSIPATION Louvers, solar shields or active cooling equipment can be added GOOD (LOW)POOR (HIGH) HEAT ABSORPTION FROM ENVIRONMENT NON-METALLICS ALUMINUM GOOD (HIGH)POOR (LOW) HEAT DISSIPATION FROM ENCLOSED EQUIPMENT NON-METALLICS ALUMINUM MILD STEEL STAINLESS STEEL MILD STEEL STAINLESS STEEL 7

10 PENTAIR HOFFMAN ® WEIGHT CONSIDERATIONS RELATIVE WEIGHT FOR GIVEN SIZE ENCLOSURE (EMPTY) Must take into account weight of enclosed equipment 10

11 PENTAIR HOFFMAN ® AESTHETICS Hoffman can provide almost any color imaginable 11

12 PENTAIR HOFFMAN ® PURCHASE PRICE Price needs to align with customer requirements AVERAGE PURCHASE PRICE HIGHEST LOWEST ABSALUMINUM FIBERGLASS POLYESTER POLYCARBONATE 316 STAINLESS 304 STAINLESS 12 MILD STEEL
