Enclosures for switchgear and electrical equipment are vital across the manufacturing and engineering sectors including food and beverage production companies.
An enclosure creates a protective environment for sensitive electrical components, while also protecting operatives from contact with the electrical circuitry.
The design of these enclosures needs to take account of their location; for food production lines, this means ensuring very high hygiene standards can be maintained.
Enclosures specifically designed to meet the requirements of food and beverage production lines are commonly referred to as “Hygienic Design” enclosures.
Rittal has published a White Paper which considers the distinguishing characteristics of Hygienic Design enclosures and how they must align with current and relevant directives, regulations and guidelines.
