Powder coated carbon steel NEMA 6 enclosure

NEMA 6 enclosures provide a waterproof solution whereby there is need for temporary protection from submersion under the water per the NEMA definition.

Nemaco offers type 6 enclosures series in carbon steel, powder coated steel and powder coated aluminum material as an option for lightweight. Nemaco’s aluminum waterproof enclosures provide great conductive heat transfer characteristics and good corrosion resistance protection from humid air, water wash-down & full water submersion than standard powder coated steel NEMA 6 enclosures. NEMA 6 enclosures are equivalent relationship to IP67 enclosures. IP is the abbreviation for Ingress Protection that commonly used in Europe and other parts of the world.

Nemaco’s NEMA Type 6 Enclosure product category have been TESTED and APPROVED BY Underwriters Laboratories(UL). Call or send an email to Nemaco for the range of products available in the UL approved product category.

The 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 is required to provide limited corrosion protection per NEMA standards. NEMA 6 are generally rated for occasional submersion for a limited duration.

Type 6 DEFINITION PER NEMA 250 STANDARD

NEMA 6 boxes are constructed and can be used for either indoor or outdoor locations and they 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, Type 6 provides only limited protection against corrosion.

** Nemaco has solutions for corrosive protection.

ALTERNATIVE MATERIALS & 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 electro statically 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.

ADDITIONAL TYPE 6 BOX INFO

We are very proud to offer our NEMA 6 waterproof enclosures for industrial applications for protecting and housing electrical components in the indoor and outdoor environment against the entry of water during occasional temporary submersion at a limited depth. Nemaco manufactures NEMA type 6 electrical enclosures and boxes follows NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturer Association) standards to ensure quality to our customers.

We manufacture electrical enclosures from top-grade carbon steel, aluminum alloys and we can customize enclosures according to a customer’s specifications. We have a lot of features you can add to the enclosure such as floor kit footings, air conditioners, windows and many more options. Please check for more information in a table in the last section of this page.

NEMA 6 Enclosures Summary

Nemaco offers NEMA 6 Enclosures in powder coated carbon steel. All NEMA 6P Enclosure in stainless steel (304 / 316L) and powder coated aluminum are by definition automatically meet the NEMA 6 Enclosure category requirements. 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.

Basic NEMA 6 Definition Overview

  • Gives protection underwater environment against the entry of water during occasional temporary submersion.
  • Outdoor protection from rain, ice information, foreign substances and windblown dust (circulating dust and settling airborne).
  • Indoor protection from falling dirt, incidental contact and dripping water from pipes.
  • However, enclosure materials only provide limited protection against corrosion.

** Nemaco has solutions for corrosive protection.
