nVent Launches Highly Rated Portfolio of Electrical Enclosures and Air Conditioners for Ultimate Protection in the Most Demanding Environments

February 1, 2023

nVent Electric plc has recently introduced its new nVent HOFFMAN Extreme Environments line of stainless-steel enclosures and air conditioners. Certified to the industry’s highest standards, the product line offers a durable, reliable solution for ultimate protection of critical equipment and system components in the most demanding environments.

“Many of our customers are responsible for mission critical operations in tough environments where severe temperature swings, corrosive conditions or other harsh factors threaten the performance of their equipment. This portfolio is specially designed and engineered to help make sure they can maximize uptime, deliver efficiency and reliably maintain their critical operations where they need to be around the world,” said Aaron Craig, Senior Marketing Director at nVent.

Ideally suited for water, wastewater, oil and gas, offshore/coastal, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, mining and other extreme environments, the nVent HOFFMAN Extreme Environments enclosures and air conditioners meet industry-leading ratings for protection against water and particulate ingress. All of the products in the portfolio are backed by a best-in-class aftermarket service, regional spare parts inventories and competitive standard warranties.

Extreme Environments enclosures: Longer product life, easier maintenance

Built to easily handle the most challenging operating conditions, Extreme Environments enclosures are available in a full range of standard configurations, and also can be customized. The enclosures meet rigorous UL Type 4X, IEC IP66 and IP69 ratings to protect electrical, data and control mechanisms from corrosives, wind-driven water, broad temperature swings, humidity and UV rays. Extreme Environments enclosure solutions offer rugged stainless-steel design and industry leading-ingress protection to prevent water and particulates from entering the enclosure, and avoiding component failure and unnecessary downtime. The new enclosures also offer the following features that can maximize protection, enable easier maintenance and extend product life:

  • Adhesive-free, patent-pending, UL Listed gasket mounting for a reliable seal and easy replacement
  • Patent-pending hinge design, with lift-off door for easier maintenance and locking set screw to secure door in place
  • Multiple material options for corrosion resistance and reduced solar heat gain, including SS 304, white-painted SS 304 and SS 316L
  • Internal protection options, such as stainless steel or zinc-coated steel internal componentry for corrosive applications

Extreme Environments Air Conditioners: Optimal performance

The new nVent HOFFMAN Extreme Environments air conditioner solutions can maintain extended periods of optimal cooling performance in the toughest of environments. Rated for IEC IP66, IP69, and IP69K, Extreme Environments air conditioners also offer the industry’s highest ingress protection to prevent water and particulates from entering, keeping critical components inside safe and avoiding unnecessary downtime.

Specially designed from the inside out for durability and performance, the air conditioners are suitable for food service and other sanitary environments. They feature an FDA-approved neoprene gasket, a fully sloped shroud, and durable stainless-steel components. These robust features help eliminate liquid and particulate collection and bacteria growth, reducing downtime and replacement costs. Also, the industry-leading solutions are washdown-ready with no need for additional protection.

Extreme Environments air conditioners are available with options such as heaters and advanced corrosion protection packages. The air conditioners can be paired with the nVent HOFFMAN Extreme Environments enclosure or be easily retrofitted to an existing enclosure without modifications.
