Rittal introduces new Hygienic Design Pushbutton Enclosures and Accessories designed specifically for the high hygiene zone in food and beverage facilities.

Five sizes are available in the hygienic design (HD) pushbutton enclosure line including one-, two-, three-, four-, and six-hole enclosure options that fit standard 22.5 mm pushbuttons and switches. To meet strict food safety regulations and help maintain the highest level of protection, the HD pushbutton enclosures feature:

  •    –   3° slope on all sides to prevent accumulation of liquids
  •    –   304 brushed grain, stainless steel
  •    –   Zinc-plated sheet steel mounting bracket
  •    –   IP 66 and IP 69 rated
  •    –   UL Type 4X rated

To round off Rittal’s hygienic line of accessories, a viewing window, pressure release plug, new alternative cam lock option, and key lockable t-handle have been added. These new accessories increase the versatility for users in the production area, helping to ensure work areas retain hygienic standards. Rittal‘s hygienic design accessories already include cable glands, wall spacers, leveling feet, hinges, hose-proof hoods, and more to support food and beverage operations.

All hygienic design enclosures and accessories use an FDA compliant, blue silicone gasket which helps in preventing the ingress of contaminants and bacteria while making it easier to identify any potential containments left on the enclosure after cleaning. Additionally, the silicone gasket can be easily replaced if damaged.

“The new and extended HD enclosures and accessories maintain the high quality that Rittal is known for and will help our customers in achieving the highest level of food safety throughout their production areas,” states Andreas Ruzic, Chief Executive Officer of Rittal USA and Executive Vice President of Rittal North America. “The added HD pushbutton enclosures will help users create custom solutions for their unique applications.”

Rittal has also added extended sizes to the hygienic design single door enclosure line providing more options for food and beverage producers to create custom solutions to fit their application.
