Powder coated carbon steel NEMA 6 enclosure

NEMA 6 enclosures provide a solution for waterproof applications where need to be temporary submerge under the water.

Nemaco offers type 6 enclosures series in carbon steel, powder coated steel and powder coated aluminum material as an option for lightweight. Nemaco aluminum waterproof enclosures provide good conductive heat transfer properties and more general corrosion resistance from humid air, water wash-down & full water submersion than powder coated steel. These enclosures are equivalent to IP67 enclosures.

Our NEMA Type 6 Enclosures are TESTED and APPROVED BY Underwriters Laboratories(UL)

This type 6 rating series is considered as a waterproof box that gives protection against the entry of water during occasional temporary submersion, outdoor protection from rain, ice formation, foreign substances and windblown dust (circulating dust and settling airborne). Also, Indoor protection from falling dirt, incidental contact and dripping water from pipes. However, it doesn’t protect against corrosion.

Type 6 DEFINITION PER NEMA 250 STANDARD

These NEMA 6 boxes are constructed for either indoor or outdoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts; to provide a degree of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against ingress of solid foreign objects (falling dirt); to provide a degree of protection with respect to harmful effects on the equipment due to the ingress of water (hose directed water and the entry of water during occasional temporary submersion at a limited depth); and that will be undamaged by the external formation of ice on the enclosure. However, it doesn’t provide protection against corrosion.

** Nemaco has solutions for corrosive protection.

Alternative Material and PROTECTIVE COATINGS

Typically, NEMA type 6 enclosures and boxes are fabricated from carbon steel. Since carbon steel will rust from moisture in the air or direct contact from water, protective coated must be applied to carbon steel prevent or reduce surface corrosion. Powder coating can be electrostatically sprayed onto a clean and dry carbon steel enclosure. After the coating is applied then the enclosure can be baked at 400 degrees Fahrenheit whereby the coating will melt and adhere to the metal surface. After the metal is cool from the powder coat oven, the enclosure is ready to be assembled and packaged for shipping. Sometimes spray wet paint or dipped galvanized coating can be applied as alternate coating solutions.

NEMA 6 Enclosures Summary

Nemaco offers NEMA 6 Enclosures in powder coated carbon steel. Customers can request the upgrade to powder coated aluminum material as an option. Aluminum alloys offer lower weight, good conductive heat transfer properties, and more general corrosion resistance from humid air, water wash-down & full water submersion than powder coated steel.
