The 4Xxtreme enclosures feature patented double-seal and double-stud mounting technology; an ultraclean, free-draining design; an award-winning “single hygienic quarter-turn door design;” and a field replaceable blue gasket system.
4Xxtreme enclosures are UL Type 4X rated with additional ratings of IP66 and IP69K. Custom Stainless Enclosures is one of the first companies in North America to manufacture high-pressure wash-down (IP69K)-rated enclosures.
The 4Xxtreme double-seal technology offers multiple layers of protection. The outer seal rejects 99.9999% of water, so the inner seal never sees any water pressure. Any water that does get through the outer seal is minimal and easily passes through the weep holes in the bottom of the enclosure door, ensuring there’s never water build-up between the two seals.
The enclosures also feature a field-replaceable blue gasket system, an easy-to-install “push on" style gasket that requires minimal installation labor. The gasket system is made from an EPDM material that’s highly chemical-resistant and can handle consistently high temperatures of 250⁰F (121⁰C). In addition, because the gasket material is blue, all 4Xxtreme gaskets are considered "foreign material detectable."
All 4Xxtreme Double Seal Enclosures also feature a 2021 Process Expo Innovation Award-winning “Single Hygienic Quarter Turn Door Design.” The biggest problem with electrical enclosures in processing plants is people don’t turn all the quarter-turns to properly close an enclosure door. By minimizing the number of door closure points to one, this design reduces premature electrical failures, increases plant production and revenue, and reduces the overall cost of equipment ownership.
The 4Xxtreme patented (welded in place) Double Stud Mounting System provides secure mounting for the back panel on the inside while also providing an external mounting means from the outside, which eliminates any need for mounting gaskets.
