Vent hoods and vented electrical enclosures are available. Electrical enclosures with pre-fitted ventilation systems are also available as standard products.
Features and Benefits
The purpose of ventilation and temperature control is to maintain a set internal temperature (TI) by adjusting control parameters in accordance with variations in ambient temperature (TA). Electrical enclosure ventilation and temperature control generally consists of cooling and heating via vents, fans, heaters, thermostats and integral sun shields. Generally, the temperature range of the electrical enclosure must maintain an internal temperature below the operating temperature range of internal components.
IP Enclosures provide vent hoods to increase protection of vents, vent filters and internal components. The top of vent hoods are inclined to prevent settling and building up of liquids, corrosive solids, minerals, dust, dirt and debris on top of the vent hood. All IP Enclosures electrical enclosure vent hoods are manufactured with nutserts for ease of installation and gaskets to prevent crevice corrosion.
Materials and Fabrication of Vent Hoods
Cutting, pressing and full continuous seam welding using precision automated manufacturing equipment ensures accuracy and consistent high quality.
Steel vent hoods are fabricated using 1.2mm galvanised steel sheet. UL approved epoxy polyester powder-coated with a textured RAL7035 finish to 80-120 micron average thickness. Coloured rain hoods are available if required.
Stainless Steel vent hoods are fabricated using 1.5mm Grade 316/316L Stainless Steel.
A range of sizes of steel and stainless steel rain hoods are available. Part numbers and availability are shown below. All sizes are held in stock.
