Rittal: Hygienic Design Pushbutton Enclosures

November 21, 2022

Rittal has announced new Hygienic Design Pushbutton Enclosures for food and beverage manufacturers. 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.

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.
