Materials for NEMA 6P Submersible Enclosures


NEMA 6P enclosures are manufactured from 204/316 stainless steel for any use in industrial applications – in specific occasions, these enclosures are manufactured from plastic made for inexpensive electronics. Our submersible NEMA 6P enclosures are used for any type of application where there is a need for water submersion. If there is a need for any use of corrosive materials (salt water) and caustic where the application indicates the necessity the use of those, then the NEMA 6P stainless steel submersible enclosures would be a good fit for you. Majority of the industrial applications creates the need to use 304 and 316 stainless steels. For 316 stainless steel, these are commonly used in offshore platforms and naval applications. In addition to this, the customer should decide the specifications for certain applications (for temperature, seal resistance, depth submersion).

We offer customizable NEMA 6P enclosures that will suit your needs. We are offering NEMA 6P enclosures of different sizes from small wall mounts to two-door floor mount models. Also, like in NEMA 6, we also offer passivation for more corrosion protection and this is available by request.

Additional accessory: Stainless Steel Casters

In addition to the more specifications that are requested for NEMA 6 AND 6P enclosures, provider also offers stainless steel casters to enclosures for any applications that would need transportation of enclosures. Stainless steel casters are non-corrosive material so it is safe to use for NEMA 6 and 6P enclosures.

Our 4″ & 5″ stainless caster wheels can hold weight up to 300 pounds per caster (1,200 pounds for 4 wheels) and these wheels can withstand any application that requires the exposure to corrosive materials and liquids. Despite its weight capacity, these casters are also ideal for the lightest duty applications where the enclosure should be totally immobile when the caster brake is applied.

This stainless steel caster wheel has a unique brake feature that locks both wheel and the swivel bearing simultaneously. Our “Total-Lock” feature for our stainless caster wheels ensures that when the wheel is totally locked, the swivel caster is totally immobile and will not move. This fantastic combination of wheel brake and swivel lock is important for the safety of some specific applications. This accessory is only made by special request of the customer.
