Cleveland, OH - February 2012 - Adalet announces a re-design to their factory sealed panelboards which provides real costs savings for Class I, Division 2 hazardous location applications.  Modifications to the poured seal separating the cast aluminum explosionproof enclosure and the stainless steel terminal enclosure has greatly reduced the cost of the assembly providing lower costs to the user.  Designed for use in Class I, Division 2, Groups BCD and US Zone 2 areas such as refineries and petrochemical installations, the factory sealed panelboards are used to control lighting and appliance, power circuits, and power distribution in applications requiring branch power distribution, over current, and short circuit protection.  

Utilizing electrical components from Cutler Hammer, the Adalet factory sealed panelboards are pre-wired and factory sealed from the circuit breakers inside a rugged, cast aluminum explosionproof enclosure to the main distribution block and branch terminals housed in an IP66 rated, NEMA 4X stainless steel terminal enclosure.  The factory seal between the breaker enclosure and terminal enclosure eliminates the need for external sealing. 

All Adalet factory sealed panelboards are equipped with padlockable external operating handles, copper bus, isolated neutral and ground bar, and GFI or EPF breakers, and terminal blocks.  Gasketed covers provide NEMA 4 / 4X rated protection for a water tight seal, and stainless steel cover bolts, removable hinges, and breather / drain are included as standard features.  Stainless steel panelboards are also available and are designed for use in applications where harsh chemicals or hose down conditions exist, the Adalet N4XPBH series stainless steel panelboards provide a watertight, non-corrosive solution.
